Not sure if that was brave or stupid, but it was scary to watch as he went through the wet corners. Big skills and equally big balls

Agreed. Seems like a decision making issue within race direction across the board. Rules need to be inforced consistantly.

Correct result for Marquez imho.But he done Rossi out of valuable points.

One of the main contributing factors was definitely the weather causing the track to be wet in places and dry in others, a racers nightmare in deciding which tyres (wets or slicks) to go with. That certainly didn't help matters.

Jack Miller was robbed of his gains by selecting slicks when all the others went for wets. A 50 metre head start was hardly the same as a pit-lane start for all the others. However I can see the problem race officials had with all bikes except Jacks starting from a single pit-lane, they had to do something to make it a safer start.

Exactly, Idiot Marquez may have cost Rossi the championship. Obviously we don't know how the season is going to pan out yet, but Rossi was on for some points up until then in this race,

A racer who get three penalties in one race is certainly doing something wrong :thumbdown:
