Bautista should just put "Bowling Ball" on back of his leathers

Yep, and Rossi needs to sort out his qualifying and his starts.

If he wants to run around the first couple of turns midfield race after race then this sort of stuff will keep happening.

Just got the helicopter shot of Bau/Vale incident, for me there should be penalty points heading Bautista´s way from that, he just rammed to the side of Vale, probably didn´t see him and all, but on that situation you have to be aware of riders around you.

Re-watched that video - Bautista´s front wheel is next to Rossi´s back wheel coming out of the corner before, and then when changing side from left to right, Bautista suddenly swerves to the right (he probably wants to get to the inside of whoever is in front of him for the right-hander). No way Rossi could have seen him coming, before they touch.

After watching what he was doing at Jerez, the question for me was never whether Marquez was going to have a race crash but whether he was going to take someone else out with him when it happened. May not be the end of them.

Nice result for the WC -- would have been pretty demoralizing for Lorenzo if Pedrosa did 3 in a row. Pedrosa didn't look comfortable out there.

Bradl -- finally.

I have a feeling we will see more MM crashes, and won't have to wait long for them.

The path to self-understanding has certain twists and turns that can't be short-cut, or so it seems. Appears it is the turn of Marquez to demonstrate that.

+1; every commentator I listened to, including Spies, said it was a racing incident, no blame.

and GO CAL.

"You can't buy patina", yes?
Hopefully he will remain healthy as he earns it. This weekend watching him in QP I noticed I had a shit-eating grin whenever he was on the screen

"Smooth" ala JLo and Rossi is nice, but I prefer his kind of riding.

Maybe Vale should tell him his ambition outweighed his talent?
I don't see fault there.

MM did very well in the race up until he crashed (.... afterall that was his 4th crash of the weekend I think, and those before, including the huge one on the main straight,that caused some injuries, appeared not to have slowed him down at all).

But yeah, it was to be expected he'll make a mistake in a race some time.

What pisses me off of that incident is Bautista "saying" to the camera that Vale straighten up his bike and rammed him... WTF Alvaro WTF?

MM going down is like a wait to happen momment, he was already in the 2nd place, why would you try to push it harder knowing that you're 4 secs behind and there's just 3 laps to the checkered?

OTOH when will Pedrosa grow a pair and stop chickening out when he has someone behind or gets passed? WTF is wrong with this guy, he's got the talent to win the title, but not the guts...

Did you see the helicopter view on it? At least it showed, that Vale is clearly ahead of Alvaro coming out of the left-hander, and there's no way Vale could see that A. is making that move. To me, that looked a bit bone-headed.

Spies knows this stuff way better than I do, though. Let's see what race direction says.

With a dye-job like that it's obvious that his judgement is clouded.

More freeze and thaw on the feed during the race.

Reflects well on TIM, the title sponsor, don't it?

Dovi did well for being pretty bent.

Cal again on the podium. And Yamaha are keeping Smith and hiring EsP? Yeah, good management there.

MM doesn't seem to be getting much criticism for his antics compared to what Marco received?
