F1 Fanatic - Moto GP
Was concerned when I heard Marquez had crash, haven’t felt like that since I used to back Stoner and he was falling off the Ducati every other week.
Nevertheless – Repsol Honda (@HRC_MotoGP) Twitter: “Marquez declared fit to race”
Great finish!!! That’s why MotoGP is better than F1!!
Had me shouting at the screen, motoGP always delivers :D
I certainly don’t wish for riders to get hurt, but Marquez was lucky not to be. Pedrosa lost the chance of having his main rival out of the race, and spoilt the one of overtaking him on track.
I hear Marquez was penalised for his crash but I don’t know how nor when. In F1 he would’ve got a grid penalty and due to the seriousness of his mistake I was surprised the stewards decided agains influencing his race with the penalty.
Great race by the top 3, Pedrosa, then Marquez and Lorenzo made it thrilling as usual! But Dani should get back to winning now!
Pfft. What a joke, how could a team make such a silly error?!
Reminds me a bit of Hamilton, China 2007 with the late tyre call.
Yeah, that was just downright bizarre.
Haha, Marc is disqualified because missing the mandatory pit window. Is it him wanted to stay out or HRC forget to call their driver in?
At least title battle is still on!
Wondering whether F1 should have taken this approach back in Indy 2005
@adityafakhri Well, I think that the tyre blankets were on when Lorenzo (and Marquez should have) pitted.
What the hell is going on with MotoGP this weekend? They seem to be making it up as they go along. Yesterday it was reported that the race length would remain the same, with a mandatory pit stop between 12-14 laps, and now today it IS shortened, with the window before lap 10. No wonder people were confused.
Next race the top ten riders must play a game of fizz buzz using wheelies when they cross the line in order to qualify.
The rules were updated to reflect the changing conditions. Today was considerably cooler than yesterday, which made the degradation suffered by the tyres much more exaggerated than they had been throughout the weekend.
F1 was really lucky, considering that three major motorsports have taken place in Japan in consecutive weeks: F1, WEC, MotoGP – and the last two have been affected badly by the rain.
This morning’s MotoGP Motegi quali was a one-off 75 minute session to give the riders a practice on the track as well as set the grid order for the race.
