‘Mar­quez, Viñales clash will hap­pen’

And then there’s Valentino Rossi, who seemed as shocked as any­one to have taken the ti­tle lead. As Viñales and Mar­quez push each other hard, Rossi stays con­sis­tent. He might not have won in 2017 yet, but Marc Mar­quez proved in 2016 that you don’t need to win ev­ery week­end for ti­tle suc­cess. Plus, he loves the up­com­ing tracks.

The only thing we were de­nied at the week­end (yet again) was the chance to see Mar­quez and Viñales prop­erly go head to head for a race win for the first time since their days in the Span­ish cham­pi­onship as spotty teenagers. But make no mis­take; it is com­ing, and when it does it’s go­ing to be spec­tat­u­lar!
