Dull race apart from the second place incident.

Looks like Championship is over already.

It was ok. I think we've been spoilt over the last year or so with some fantastic races.

There are still 16 races left anything could happen yet , Yamaha could find the solution to their electronics issue , Marquez could get injured or Cal might stop falling off .

The Moto3 race was excellent once again though .

Can't believe Cal crashed out again. I thought that was behind him and he had found some consistency to partner his speed.

Marc Marquez on Cal Crutchlow today:

"I mean in case of Honda for example, Cal has the same bike as me. Exactly the same. Even sometimes he gets some new parts before me because he tries them, but he has like a factory bike, so he is the same."

He's such a wind up merchant :D

It was worth watching just to watch MM save that moment on the gravel,I could just watch that over and over again
Remember: If in Doubt use Full Throttle, It may not make the situation any better, But it will end the suspense...

That was a great moment but not surprised at all MM saved that.. he went up in my standings when he did the Backpack Kid dance (or ‘floss’ as my kids call it) as he crossed the finish line (giggle)
Happiness is not a destination. It is a way of life.

I've only seen clips of the 3-way crash and MM saving it from the gravel. What clips they both were!!!

Firstly.. the 3-way. That looks bloody painful for Pedrosa! I believe it to be a pretty awful racing incident with a little bit of blame towards Lorenzo but a racing incident nonetheless.

MM's gravel save... I've been in a similar situation (although quite clearly not even 10% as major) where the back end came round on me entering a corner. Difference being that my wheel was under-rotating as opposed to his over-rotating so where I had to add throttle to bring it back inline, he had to reduce it. The feeling is horrendous as you can't really do anything about it; it just happens. At the speed they're going the margins are nanoseconds long and that was stupendous riding!! He's a pleasure to watch ride
