They were very lucky to escape injury, it could have easily been very nasty. No penalties handed to anyone. And now Marquez gets too hot into the corner, and just ever so slightly touches Pedrosa´s bike on the way, but because he happened to touch exactly the wrong spot on the bike, now THIS should be punished??????

There is just absolutely no logic in any of this, if MM gets a penalty for Aragon. Doesn´t matter in any way that MM has often missed others back wheels by a rat´s pubic hair on the brakes. Bautista´s mistake and stupidity were enormous in comparison. And that dude also has a history.
I most definitely agree. The only thing that should come out of this is a redesign of the Honda as to the location/exposure of that wire. That was such a little touch between those two bikes that if that wire had not be severed Dani would not have crushed. It was an unfortunate, fluke occurance, end of story.
Can we move on now?

BTW, if they penalize Marquez, then Bautista should be banned from MotoGP.

I know it's October, but isn't it a bit early for a witch hunt?

Everyone keeps saying that Marky Mark rides on the edge, maybe everyone else should ride on the edge so they can keep up!

It's never too early.

If HRC had that sensor wire protected (or had a duplicate sensor like the Duc), then MM would have brushed his arm on DP's rear tire, run wide and then rejoined the 3 way battle after a lap or two.

Design flaw by Honda, nothing more.

Don't you mean...."run wide and then rejoined the 3 way battle after a lap or two, and still won the god damn race." ?

I feel bad for Dani. He has the speed but over his career he has always been made of glass it seems. I cant believe he didn't break something on that hillside last weekend.

Not sure what his plans are now. I'm guessing with MM getting etter and better he will never with a championship. He is 28 now. and will be 29 when his Honda contract is up. He will clearly be the number 2 rider on the team.

I think Suzuki should pony up a huge amount of money and get him after next year. They know he is a top 3 rider every race and it will really tell them where their bike is. Make him a deal he cant refuse for the last few years of his motoGP career.

I Like Dani and really wanted to see him with it this year. My fellow Americans who rag on him over the 2006 crash, are , well, trailer trash.

DP is so pissed that he will win all 4 remaining rounds. Even that won't get him the title, unless MM seriously screws something up, but yeah he'll want to show the young gun, that he ain't done just yet. Actually this is gonna be good.

That would be quite awesome, and I hope he does.

I'd be happy to see him with a fire under his ass, but he ain't winning 4 races; sorry Pecha.

This is what I'm hoping for as well.

Dani has been pissed since Honda signed with MM. Being pissed doesn't seem to be enough.
