That grid looks interesting.

I can't remember the last time an independent started from pole.

Quote from the latest "Dear George" -

You know who is on pole? Jack Miller. And Jack is on pole because he rode around a partially wet racetrack on slicks, while sitting on fizzing testicoli the size of planets and the colour of courage.

couldn't have put it better myself

Jack Miller deserves that. He did what even Marquez couldn't too and hung out on slicks.

I didn’t think much of Miller when he first went to MotoGP, his attitude seemed a bit off. But I’ve read a lot about him and been impressed by his effort and commitment over last two seasons. I really hope he does well this season.

I was knocked out a few years ago when I crashed a bike. I had concussion for 3 weeks. My memory has never been the same since.

What a farce. Miller should be allowed a one lap advantage. He made the right decision. No one else did.

Marquez lost all control. Needs to be black flagged for everyone’s safety.

I have never seen such irresponsible riding from a professional , I think he needs a suspension for at least 1 race .

3 penalties in 1 race. Race direction need to reign him in.

He is an amazing talent and a pleasure to watch but he can't be allowed to be so reckless. He was out of control today.
