Agreed, boring race. Marquez needs to bring it down a notch. He has talent but he is starting to act like Lorenzo which is not good. His head is getting too big for his helmet. Kudos though for the victory lap with Nicky's flag, he has some class.

Pedrosa is growing some stones in his old age. Helluva effort racing with a broken wrist.

Lorenzo got a top 10 finish due to attrition, not talent. LOL!

Marquez is shaming the rest of the field. This does not make for good racing or entertainment.

He is impressive, but his ego is about to get the best of him. Marquez is young enough and talented enough to be the best of all time, if he can keep his ego in check.

Rossi got a little too big for his britches when he was dominating. He got knocked down a few notches and I think he gained some humility.

Lorenzo is getting his taste of karma, let see if he learns from it or goes down a whiner.

I do not think Marquez will suffer any significant set back due to his on track shenanigans. If he is feeling cocky it is because he has reason to feel that way. The big mistake he needs to avoid is switching teams under the mistaken belief he can dominate on any bike. He and Repsol Honda are the perfect match at the moment.

I basically quit talking MotoGP online even though I love MotoGP and have been following GP since 1973. These days it seems to break down into 2 camps on the internet..Those that think Rossi can do no wrong and when he doesn't do well, it's obviously someone else's fault.. and in the other camp is, everything bad in the world is Marquez's fault and the kid doesn't deserve to even be racing, much less winning. It's turned very much like discussing national politics imo. I subscribe and watch every race, just refuse to discuss it much on the internet anymore.

Glad no one was hurt badly in that incident as Zarco got a little over zealous with his line with the upcoming right hander and everyone adjusting. Shame it took them out.
