Seems plausible, that he had a good chance to win at Aragon as well.. and this would have kept him in the title fight.

Pernat's always been a little down on Pedrosa. He won Sepang in the rain last year (and would've won 2011) -- I don't know where he gets this "suddenly".

A bit of a different ride for Mark, had a bit of a go at Jorge then stood back, picked his line and made a very strong pass, I haven't looked at lap times but I have a strong suspiscion he let Dani win this one. Saving himself for being crowned World Chanpion at Philip Island?

Moto 3 was great as usual, Moto 2 was even better (baring the crash) I'm a Pol fan so was happy with the result.

Once MotoGP settled down it was on of the most boring races I have watched and I'm not usually one to complain about that sort of thing. I am thoroughly over Vale coming fourth, I want to see him on the podium!

...fastest of the pack as long as the fastest guy is protecting his points lead and finishing a safe second instead of dicing for the win.

Agreed. IMO Dani always pushes. He's just crashed a lot. If he had finished every race this year..... who knows?

I think Pedrosa was due to win one, but he really showed some fortitude in getting it done at Sepang, considering his get-off last race and the pain he surely was feeling. Well done.

What a shame to see Hayden's efforts toward a decent race (for Ducati)go unrewarded. I'd rather see him fighting with CE for points paying positions than riding that pig of a bike.

Looking forward to history being made next race, with MM capturing the title. Best rider on the best bike is how it should be.

After all that has been said pre-race, I thought it was a very nice gesture for Lorenzo to shake hands with Marquez on the warm down lap. Excellent sportsmanship!!

Great to see Pedrosa enthused at the end of that one. I don't think I have ever seen him as stoked. I think if MM could have closed the gap he would have even though he may not have risked a pass. Just to make a point I think he would have wanted to be right on his tail crossing the line if possible.

JLo showed, at least to me, what an outstanding racer he is once again. He's not my favorite guy on the track but he's impressive to no end. The whole package.

Looked like he was truly disgusted when he walked away from the TT- "good riddance you POS".

NH could get better results riding a Moto2 bike in MotoGP.

The Duc factory needs to hear that some U.S. customers are going to look elsewhere for their next bike. I thought that I wanted an 1199.......NOT any more.

Ducati- you have really lost your way.

Given a couple more laps, he could have easily dispensed with Dani in a much safer manner and continued to decimate Jorge.

A penalty would bring the realization that he is indeed endangering others unnecessarily. Maybe not as overtly blatantly like Bautista has but he has been nonetheless.
Nonsense - hes a breath of fresh air.

Credit where it is due. .... in a word awesome.

To be fair, Hayden has ridden on a Honda as well and well, you know how many times he won on that thing

His team mate for 2013 has only had one season on it and I cant recall Hayden beating him to often

The Ducati is a pig, but then old saying about a poor tradesman always blaming his tools ... why he would want to stay on a thing that has no chance of winning is beyond me anyway.

Not to mention that Dani clearly had the field covered as he moved up. He went by and MM tried to step it up. He made a mistake in what appeared to me to be a frantic counter attack. There is no doubt in my mind that DP should have won that race by several seconds. But it doesn't matter in the end, because he didn't.

So what was Alex Marquez thinking with 3 laps to go when he looked back exiting the corner and promptly dropped from 1st to 5th? It certainly didn't help his drive out of the corner.

Damn good race.
