All I can say is wow. Just wow.

Wtf was up with that start? Never seen anything like that. The whole field was riding carefully except the master of disaster, Marquez. His pace was clearly unmatched since he always rides balls to the wall but his antics this race should have had him disqualified. Absolutely no reason to ride so wrecklessly since he was a second faster per lap than pretty much everyone on the grid but the young n dumb couldn't resist the urge to bully bump people out his way. Whatever penalties he has comin his way is very well deserved. Otherwise, great race by crashlow, zarco and rins.

What a race. Absolutely great. Marquez should've been black flagged, but the 30 second penalty put him out of the points anyways so it was all for nothing. Sucks for all the people he kept dive bombing though...

MM deserved a black flag today.

Good on him for going (trying) to apologize to Rossi though.

Agree with the black flag. Now, race direction has to worry about a certain rider and what he feels is retribution!

unbelievable

I thought marc had outgrown that silly shit. I was just defending him last night at dinner - the italian at the table was calling MM an idiot - I'm like yeah He's completely changed

Mark Marques is a dick, a few years ago Hopper did something similar and got suspended for two races. MM should have got the black flag AND a one race suspension. He could have killed someone.

Two questions:
1) Does the Marquez family own part of the MotoGP?
2) Did Lorenzo finish the race yet?
Thanks from Phl, MMC, jyli19 and 2 others

As a MM fan I have to say, WTF? I bet there is more to who told him to do "what" and start "where" at the start. Race officials had their "head up their ass" all day ( wet race? dry race? how to start the race etc.. ?) Unfortunately, after incident with Rossi , MM should have been blackflagged and possibly suspended a race to help difuse any animosity and upcoming retribution from not just Rossi but some of the other riders. ( still early yet and might still happen) If he is allowed to race at COTA with no grid penalities he will most likely lap everyone else like 5-times. (sarcastic, but possible). �� And for all you Rossi fanboys Rossi has shown a lot of the same recklessness early in his career you adorn on MM. Should be another GREAT season!
