New chassis Rossi is using is much improved for him. He would be leading the championship standings if Yamaha had given him it at the start of the championship.

It's certainly not Game over for Yamaha, far from it. The next round is the Czech Republic which anyone could win then it's Austria where the Ducati's run well closely followed by the Yamaha's. Honda always struggles there so i don't think Marquez will be top after Austria.

As for Dovi yes he has a good chance of winning the title if he doesn't make any mistakes which he usually doesn't. But he will still have to hope for Marquez, Rossi & Vinales crashing out of at least one of the remaining races.

Regarding Rossi, he would be leading the championship by 10 points instead of trailing by 10 points if he'd not crashed himself out of Le Mans and, instead, managed to finish 2nd behind his teammate.  He'd be leading by 15 if he hadn't crashed AND he'd not outbraked himself and managed to win the race.  I'd say his race in France and his own mistakes there had a much larger impact on his championship standing than the chassis he's using, at least up until this point in the season.  

it's fantastic to go into the summer break with the championsdhip so close for the top 4, and Dani not too far behind!
