Dorna "In light of today's decimation of the motogp field by Marquez, in spite of the fact he started from pit row, Marquez will start from pit row for the rest of the season. He will ride his Moto2 bike from last year as well."

They don't want folks to lose interest.

Moto III delivers as usual. Binder Mahinder was on the job!
Again I'm still not drinking the Marquez Junior Kool Aid.

And new Save Of The Year goes to Livio Loi!

What can you say about Marc? Good god the last lap he's got it in the bag and he hammers it out on the edge anyway. I was laughing watching him!
Unreal.

And very happy for Jorge.

Starting to root for MM to win them all. The pressure will continue to mount as he continues winning, but the young man is beyond talented and he looks like he just might be able to do it.
His pit crew looked bored in a few shots on Saturday, going for the win record might keep them motivated. DP and his crew look focused, determined and hungry. He is my pick for most likely to end the MM streak.

Yamaha certainly seems to be on their back foot a bit. Did someone finally get into Rossi's head the way he did so often to his rivals?

If the season ended today this would be the one most entertaining years in recent GP history.

Yes, I have read some race analysis, I understand what happened, but, I stand by what I said. To take the risk of changing the fork springs, shock, wheels and brakes on the grid, in such limited amount of time, when the pressure is really on and so much could go wrong, is a big call. Someone dropped a spacer changing the shock and they lost time finding it and ran out of time to change the fork springs. Such a small fumble.
A big risk when there is a bike in the pits already setup for the dry.

I truly hope it doesn't cost him his ride.

Only having one bike can be a big problem. That likely put the knife in Bradl's MotoGP career.

I think I see a Marquez Effect, everyone hanging off just a bit farther in the corners these days.

That was the mistake. He had his dry bike sitting waiting....

anybody else think that most of the grid starting from pit lane exit was more than a bit dangerous? Glad they all got underway without crashes this time, but you can΄t have that many bikes start the race that close to each other.

Are we going to discuss the back marker in Moto2 who wouldn't get off the racing line? Last lap, no less.

at the start, they should have had someone at the end of pit lane lining them up in the order they came out of their pit box, I think if they put them in rows of two it might have been a little better, but honestly, these guys are the best in the world, and they didn't seem to have any problems with the hare scramble start.
what is the answer? delay the race so everyone can change bikes again? Dorna doesn't like to delay, they have live TV feed around the world. Maybe give everyone 5 minutes to decide what bike to ride? but then again, what if it started to rain again?
I think the rules that are in place now are pretty good, you get to change bikes, but if you do, you start from pit lane, it was just this one time that everyone decided to change bikes!

That, I think the comms said, was the wildcard Nina Prinz. And it was a pretty spectacular bit of bad riding.
Certainly seemed to affect Vinales on the last corner, and others earlier in the lap.
Not quite sure what sanctions are applicable to wildcards?

She appeared to have the least care in the world regarding the rule of the race, not even had any response to the complaints of fellow racers.

I suspect she enrages others on the highways constantly.
