I was just thinking "this is the smoothest [read not seemingly out of control] I've seen Marquez ride" and he drops it!! Great I thought, let's see him pick it up and come through the field for a podium - and he can't re-start the bike!!

What I love about MototGP, so unpredictable.

Honda had a HORROR day, Marquez and Crutchlow dropping it and Lorenzo nowhere until his bike stops. :(


Anyway congratulations to Rins, another winner's name in MotoGP, and to Suzuki as well.

It was pretty heartbreaking being at the track and seeing it in person. It looked like it was going to be a repeat of Argentina. Thankfully Rins winning limited the damage in the championship race. Definitely a bad day for Honda.

Lorenzo acting super upset when it stopped... I'm sure he's internally happy that he gets to blame the bad result on his bike and not himself though.

I'm getting worried we're going to find ourselves with another McLaren-Honda Alonso situation. Diva versus Honda, instead of with Honda.

Though kind of hard for him to justify when his teammate is doing what he does. Alonso always had an inferior teammate and the team catered to him. Now if Marquez wasn't there and Lorenzo was #1, then yeah he may try that route. Give Lorenzo half the season and if fully fit and if he is still lagging behind, maybe that will shut some of the naysayers up about Marquez and how he needs to switch teams to prove that he is as good as he appears. Well if he keeps dominating a 3 time top class Champion, one who has beaten the messiah of many that are the main flappers about swapping teams to prove his worth, they really won't have much more of a leg to stand on, they already have chopped off one and a half legs with the moronic typing online.

The Honda bike has issues with it's more flexible frame, and one wonders if it contributed to Marquez' fall? Lorenzo can be forgiven so far, he has had wretched luck, so he can feel justified in moaning for now. Due to his almost continuous ill health/injury it may take him the rest of this season just to get to grips with the Honda?

As for Marquez' greatness, the doubters are fools if they think his almost total dominance is solely down to his bike!!
