    Gerloff just gave Yamaha one big SUCK IT, by passing Toprak and taking third spot!

    Word is he got full 2022 spec electronics and not the neutered crap Yamaha had been giving him previously.
    And said F-it to team orders

    From the looks in the Yamaha box when he passed Toprak, he may not have that tomorrow. You know they wanted him to defend Toprak’s position. Not so sure he didn’t try Rea on purpose. I think he put not just one, but two fingers in Yamaha’s eye.

    I thought GG had a factory spec bike. That’s what they’ve said all along. When did that change?

    Factory bike, yes but my people said either 2021 electronics or " neutered " 2022 settings until this weekend.

    Why the F would Yamaha not provide the latest?

    Passport privilege. That was some unethical shit by Yamaha knowing he had that speed challenging Toprak early last year then fuck him like that.

    Umm, did anyone here see Toprak's tire when the Pirelli technician turned it over?

    Sounds like a lot of crying and excuses for GG not performing over the last two years.

    Dave K DaveK über alles!

    Wasn’t there a rider between GG and Toprak at the finish? If GG had slowed and finished behind him Toprak still wouldn’t have been on the podium?

    Not understanding why Yamaha would give him the electronics now. No idea what spec he had before but why would they give him the new stuff the first weekend after he signs with another team? Doesn’t really add up.

    either way, for me this just further cements that the guy needs a sports psychologist. Signs with a new team, alleviating a lot of pressure and immediately goes out and podiums. Still thinking there’s a mental side of this that really should be addressed for the sake of longevity of his career.

    regardless, I’m super stoked for him.

    I would have to ask someone credible but they jokingly said on Eurosport France that he will not need to work with "her" anymore, while referring to sports psychology.

    Just more 'what' and ' why' questions to add to the GG and Yamaha list, eh?

    GG said on the Off Track podcast that his bike and Toprak’s are the same outside of minor stuff like clip-ons, rearsets due to different team sponsors.
