Right, well after such a seemingly long break after that terrific Estoril weekend, we move onto China for the next round; which was one of Alvaro’s top races last year, coming home 3.904 seconds behind Jorge Lorenzo and over 5 seconds ahead of third place man Andrea Dovizioso (de Angelis, Kallio and Barbera making up the top six).
It was a strong and spirited performance – and with a memorable “hard but fair” pass on Dovi, and it’ll be good to see him pull another great race out of the bag this time round. I think, on balance, given how the season started, another runaway victory would be more than welcome – though it’d be equally cool to see some excellent dicing again.
Here’s the weekend event schedule…
