I say Honda, singular, for a reason. So far, Márquez is the only rider who can be consistently fast on the latest RC213V. Cal Crutchlow has his good and even his brilliant days with that “physical” bike, but he cannot so far put results together. And Jorge Lorenzo, even after proving to all that he could adapt to and win races on the Ducati, has now in the words of Márquez and Valentino Rossi entered a state in which, when he pushes on the Honda, he crashes. Lorenzo’s Assen crash in Friday practice is his third in recent weeks and damaged two vertebrae enough to spend the next two GPs in a brace. Like Johann Zarco, now with KTM, Lorenzo needs his Yamaha.
