Congrats to MM, a well deserved championship.

JL did everything in his power to close the gap, and I think he found glory and admiration from many fans in his pursuit of the championship.

And congrats to Nicky, beat Dovi on the old bike in his final race and most importantly, he has been liberated from Ducati!

It seemed like JL's delaying tactics were more dangerous than flat out racing. The lines he was taking, and the places he slowed markedly caused the riders behind to evade, run wide, etc. I wonder if he was aware of that, and just said f-it, I'm going to ride hard and take what comes. I don't think those guys know much of what happens behind them, but who knows.

Good season. MM will have a tough defense next year, but it should be good for us fans.

I wasn't surprised to see Jorge gas it even when his crew was signalling him to slow down, he knew Marques was going to win the championship and had a point to prove. Marc on the other hand could prove his point buy relaxing his pace and come up with the roses.

Not the makings of a great spectators race but I was pleased with the outcome, 2014 is goin to be great.

What a great title shootout. Hopefully Pedi brings it next year so we can have an even better title fight!

I'd give Jorge more credit than that. Turned out that the team plan was going to be really dangerous for the riders and still really unlikely to result in a win for him - I think he decided that someone was going to get badly hurt if this shit continued and rode normally for the rest of the race rather than dicking around. And yeah, the someone hurt might have been him :) but even so,.

Yes JL really had a very strong end of the season.

But still remember that gap to MM was suddenly there, because:

After witnessing Marquez making an impossible save today I would conclude that Honda is employing gyroscopes as anti-crash technology.

Ok... so do you want good close racing or... maybe just settle for time trials ? This kinda contact is gonna happen.

Exactly, I couldn't agree more.

Oh yea, for those who are upset with JL's tactic's at the last race.....I seem to remember a move by MM at Jerez earlier in the year that produced 4 more points for him by finishing 2nd instead of 3rd that day....let's see what was the point margin that MM won the title by this year again?

Yeah, yeah, but Marquez could have done more in the last (2) race(s) if he had needed to. We can never know. Ifs and buts, etc.

Jlo couldnt have gone any slower dani was all over him and there fighting resulted in MM leading at one point with AB holding fourth ,VR was a little ways back again.I think it was that point he decided he was gonna check out

Upset? Are you kidding? This is racing, as it should be...bloody good save by the Ped. Good on him!
But as someone said previously, lets not hear anything from George regarding hard and 'dangerous' riding next year. Oh no...
