Yes, no doubt, that is a cool photo and a really special gesture from Lorenzo.

I don't think I have ever seen Jorge have such a pure joy smile after a race.

Marquez has apologized to Pedrosa in advance of Pedrosa viewing the video.

Moto 3 was the race to watch. Great stuff.

An amazing save no doubt. And there was a real possibility he could have taken both himself and his team-mate out of the race, so Im glad he succeeded.

It really is a fine line, where Marquez is often balancing on his new ride, and this can bite back some day (although hes proven in the smaller classes, that he can take a lot of risk, and more often than not, he will succeed). On the other hand, being able to hold on to the top guys for race-distance, is probably making him learn things even faster. Fact is, hes screwed things up just once in a race this year, and rain or shine, hes been on the podium 5 out of 6 times. Hard to believe he is a rookie!

Besides, MM was once again almost the only rider who created some sort of entertainment in an otherwise quite boring race. Surely Lorenzos victory was brilliant, but watching the top guys build or manage their lead, for me thats okay for a few laps, after that it gets old.

Bautista's near miss with Rossi was upsetting.
After Crutchlow and Hayden went off, there wasn't much left to watch.
For a moment it looked as though MM might take both Repsols out and put Rossi in second.

Hes somehow become less annoying for me, too. His annoyance level was very high, though, so still some work to do...

But hes clawing back points from DP, who is on top form and has the best bike for the moment, and hes beaten VR 6-0 in the Yamaha garage, so I think hes earnt some respect.

Didn't pay to watch another practice session.

Was away, so I hit the no spoiler vids. And watched the race in ten minutes.

That's not good.

Yeah, not too often you move from a satellite bike to a works ride for less performance! Not sure of the details of his contract but I'm sure Ducati threw money at him...plus works team prestige and Italian nationalism all big factors. With all the Crutchlow worship going on now we've already forgotten that Dovi had him covered riding the same Yamaha last year!

Start, JLo takes the lead, Bautista crashed, Buncha CRT's went bye-bye, Crutchlow crashed, Hayden Crashed, Marquez almost crashed, JLo wins.

Very strong race, but now that's 4 out of 6 where he glued himself to the back of Pedrosa. It's a sound tactic, but it'll try the patience of even a saintly teammate, and yeah, Marquez doesn't look like he's completely in control back there.

Time for Pedrosa to install a rear bumper, or a sticker: "If you can read this, use your own data!"

To be fair, MM was on the quicker pace towards the end, it was DP exercising some good defensive riding to keep MM behind him.
