MM crashes out of one race in five starts in his rookie season and everyone starts saying I told you so. How many poles, how many race wins and how many podiums in his first four races in his rookie season in MotoGp? Just sit back and watch the next big thing in MotoGp, If Honda gives him another competitive bike in 2014 he will be untouchable!!!

And we listen to what he has to say?

I'm not surprised Marquez was in second and just couldn't help himself, and kept pushing. The guy has balls and he can't hold them back. He was in second, for fucks sake, near the end of the race, the fact that he crashed out, considering his performance so far this year, I'm not worried about.

MotoGP needed Marquez, and he is delivering.

am am surprised that you guys are surprised..this is racing,these guys go as fast as they can,Dani and Jlo have had years of experience,MM has not.We all knew he was gonna crash a few times,hell he crashed a lot in moto2.And the VR bautista thing....a lot like the MM Jlo thing,just because it looks like Vr shoulda seen him,or AB shoulda seen him doesnt mean it is so...they are leaning over and have full face helmets on,a lot different to a video feed from a helicopter on a couch

Not the greatest race, but I'd say that first corner lunge by J Lo was one of the ballsiest moves in recent history.

It's clear he couldn't see that part of the track, which is why he just shouldn't have moved across the track like that since he was obviously not aware of whether or not someone was there.

That Gresini bike is capable of more than AB can get out of it. I'm tired of him and his hair.

Agreed 100%. Moving suddenly from left to right is the key here. And I really think AB should have got penalty for this, firstly it was entirely his fault, that he falsely assumed he's got clear track on his right side, where he possibly cannot see (... just how dumb is it to assume something like that only 3 bends from the start???) and secondly, this misjudgment lead to a very dangerous situation and crash for both riders.

They introduced the penalty points system, and Bautistaīs move is a prime example of where it should be used. Sure it was unintentional, but itīs obvious, that he went to where he did not really see. You canīt do that. A few penalty points would have served as a good reminder for him. And he is one, who probably needs a reminder.

I dunno why CC already had VR beaten here?? VR wasn't doing himself favours by qualifying badly, yes, but he wasn't slow this weekend, and it's probably his #1 track of them all, plus the dude had a big point to prove. But yeah, now he's somehow "lucky" he got T-boned by Bautista, cos Cal would've finished ahead if him. Right.

The data set is small, but at Le Mans Rossi was mostly ahead of Crutchlow in practice, but Crutchlow was ahead of Rossi in the race, even before Rossi crashed out.

This is not the GOAT you are looking for.

Nothing to do with GOAT, just wouldīve liked to see, what a competitive Rossi can do on this track. Somehow Rossi (and now Marquez) just create more exciting racing, when they are up front, than JLo and Pedro do, even though JLo & Pedro are undeniably the two best riders at the moment.

And I do give a lot of credit for Cal, heīs been phenomenal, but not sure how much a wet Le Mans (on a weekend, when factory Yamaha were clearly in trouble) would have counted here.

this isnt a suburban intersection, he wanted the line to the next corner,so he took it,the guy behind him is not important

Is it Bautista's fault that Rossi has less points after 5 races in 2013, than he did in 2012?

(according to the BBC, anyway )
