Riders make a clear distinction between pace and lap time. In practice runs, we are shown lap times—good, better, best—but it is pace that wins races. Here at Aragon, only Marquez and Lorenzo had the pace to win. In the movies, underdogs win by magic; they have “heart.” In MotoGP, when your pace is 1.5 seconds slow, you’re 15th. Physics is heartless.
