Holy crap. They did an onboard from Bastianini looking at Bagnia as they went down the back straight. They hit 345kph (214mph) and the bikes were still pulling HARD. I wonder what they’d top out at with enough room?

The first collision looked to be a racing incident, but MM might have been a little aggressive on the throttle with a cold tire compared to others.

The second one, MM’s old habits came out of Instinct when he started throwing elbows. Whether or not Taka would have crashed anyway is irrelevant. At least MM apologized.

Will say that MM and Binder got some great launches on the start.

Looking closer at the nakagami crash it looks like MM was drifting wide under heavy throttle and chose to bump into him rather than cut the throttle and get the front tire down. He said on IG it was a mechanical issue resulting from the crash with fabio but I doubt that's true (see vid below). You can see he was swinging his right leg out to the right to try and stop drifting outward

That being said it's nakagami so I don't care. It's karma if anything, that dude crashes in to everyone

Forgot to update this.

MM killed it. You know half the time he was screaming in his helmet from pain. Then collected himself and took that late pass. Solid effort from him today.

And Jack Miller was in the freaking zone. Had that rhythm and flow.
