About the circuit

The world’s most famous riders have taken part in GP events in Brno since 1930, where up until 1982 they would race through the villages and western parts of the city on a road track named after the first Czechoslovak President - T.G. Masaryk. A new circuit was built during the 1980s with the aim of attracting Formula 1 to Czechoslovakia, and in 1987 it played host to the FIM Czech Grand Prix. Popular with both fans and riders, the new circuit is built in a natural bowl which is banked in places to offer spectators an excellent view. Brno constantly changes in elevation as it sweeps across forested hillsides and its fast undulating corners test rider talent and engineering to the limit.

MM93's first crash of the day occurred after he entered a turn too hot. He kept it up, but lost control on the gravel trying to get back on track. It was really more a drop than a crash. Here is his second off - he tried to save it by pushing up with his knee and elbow!

Gotta love back to back GP weekends. Marquez is on fire, I think he will take the win again. For Rossi and Lorenzo points are so important right now, and I don't think they are willing to take as many risks.

FP2 times.

Lots of crashes this session. Marquez went down right at the end, with Smith, Dovi, DiMeglio, Pedrosa, Rossi all going down at some point. DP26 had a fork oil leak, which took him down, and also VR46, who was right behind him. DP26 did not return, instead he went to the trailer to ice his ankle. MM93 had the fastest time of the session, while JL99 maintains best time of the day from FP1.

Much cooler temps for FP3 compared to FP2. JL99 puts in a hot lap half a second quicker than anyone else, and it's the fastest lap ever at Brno.

Here's the grid for tomorrow. JL99 sets a new record, becoming the first rider to get under the 1'54" time. He'll be joined on the front row by MM93 (only 7 hundredths back) and a very determined VR46. Qualifying has been the bane of Rossi's campaign, so a front row start is a great result. DP26 will be on row 3, hopefully his foot will be better tomorrow.

Bradley Smith, still currently not renewed for next year with Tech3, continues his great results by qualifying 5th, in between the two factory Ducati riders. Hopefully, there will be an announcement about his contract at the Silverstone round.

This should be an amazing race! The top 3 riders in the world & top 3 in the championship, all on the first row, all still fighting for the championship at 100% fitness and top of their game! At a track they all like!

Some interesting news I heard during the warm up broadcast - Yonny Hernandez will apparently NOT be returning to Pramac Ducati. The Pramac team have instead offered Danny Kent a 3 yr deal. They are also considering Johann Zarco.

Personally, while I think it was a mistake for Honda to bring Miller to GP straight from Moto3, I can't say I think the same for Kent. I think Kent can have an impact in GP, unlike Miller. However, I'm not sure he can do that with Pramac. If the factory Ducati guys can't podium consistently, then how can Pramac when they're getting last year's hand-me-downs? He'd be in the same boat as Miller, eking out a point here and there, but really just grid filler.

The quandary here is that there is an abundance of riders who can have an impact on a truly competitive bike, but there is a lack of truly competitive bikes. I'm sure it's every Moto3 rider's dream to be in GP, but with pretty much every good ride allocated in GP, maybe Kent should go to Moto2. Hopefully, he doesn't have Rabat's luck, who decided to wait for a better ride and has had some horrible luck this year.

TLDR; Damn, it's a tough decision to make for Kent after being offered a contract with Pramac Ducati.

Lorenzo leads start to finish to take his fifth win of the season. He is now tied with VR46 for the championship, but has the first tiebreaker as Rossi has less wins with three. MM93 finished a distant second.

Yep, not a lot of battling going on. Jorge really beat up on MM, pretty much walking away from him.

so with 7 left to go, the quick math tells the tale: lets say Marc rips out all wins in the last 7 races, he would finish with 334 points, and lets also say that either VR or JL will get second in those last 7 races, would total 351, Marc would still loose the title, unfortunately Marc needs a DNF from either one in order to have a chance. There's no way he will not compete at 100% but we're looking at a Yam Champion this year, I'd love to see Vale take it to make an even 10 titles :)
