How good was that race! Even before the rain came, the battle for the lead was great. How the riders who stayed on slicks kept the bikes upright is insane.

Three races to go and it looks like Quartararo will get it done. With a 52-point lead over Bagnaia, he needs to score only 24 points in the remaining three races to be champion, even if Bagnaia wins all three. His worst three-race run so far this year has been 44 points, and Bagnaia has won only two races in total, so the title seems quite safe. If he beats Bagnaia at Misano in a couple of weeks, he will be champion regardless. Third-placed Mir is 27 points behind Bagnaia so is still able to take the runner-up spot, but it would seem unlikely given recent form.

Miller is up to fourth following Zarco's crash in Texas, 26 points behind Mir. It would be Jack's best season result but it is still a bit disappointing given where his teammate is. Marquez is knocking on the door of the top five with his recent resurgence; that would be a great comeback after missing the first two races in Qatar and then retiring from three of the next five. Binder is also well placed in sixth in just his second season, and also being the top KTM.

The Moto2 battle has tightened up, with Gardner's comfortable points lead being wiped out by a crash in Texas and a hat-trick of victories for his teammate Fernandez. The gap was 44 points after Silverstone; it is now just nine. Acosta looks sets to become a rookie champion in Moto3, 30 points up on Foggia with three remaining, but Foggia is in rampant form at the moment, sitting on five consecutive podiums.
