    They’re reporting a dislocated shoulder on eurosport.

    Yep Marquez very doubtful

    Just seen it on youtube, ouch! Marquez’s bike also gave Crutchlow’s bike a right pounding as it hit it in the gravel trap, luckily the Marshall’s were on the ball and saw it coming so scattered otherwise it could have been very nasty.

    The BBC are crap, if a F1 driver farts they are all over it, the motogp championship leader and most exiting prospect for years crashes and may not be able to race, nothing.

    Got to like Marquez. Despite the shoulder a quite incredible second place finish with a smile on his face and then congratulates Lorenzo on a great battle!

    Excellent finish,It’s usually the least exciting class,not today though!

    A proper last couple of laps duffing up! Reminds me of Rossi V Lorenzo/ Stoner/ Elias (in Estoril!)/ Gibernau etc….
    Just what Moto GP needs right now. Would be nice to see Cal or Rossi in there slinging a few punches, but at least Dani wasn’t too far off.
    Same went for Brno aswell- hope the rest of the season goes the same way with no more injuries to spoil the fun πŸ˜€

    EDIT: I meant to add Marquez for the title (as long as he keeps it out of the gravel) his closest challenger really is Lorenzo….

    Great race. I knacked my knee on my way to the race the night before. Was hammocking in the woods and had no 1st aid, so went to the circuit medical centre when I got there in the morning to get patched up.

    Marquez followed me in, so when I left, I opened the door to 20 odd lenses pointed at me. I’d been warned, and I typed with the idea of pulling my jacket over my head and acting all mysterious. Didn’t know what state Marquez was in, so I decided against it!

    Great performance from him, can’t have been comfortable. Good to see Lorenzo back at the front, though. And fantastic races in Moto2 and 3, too.

    And the Sheene parade 2 strokes sounded awesome!

    Lorenzo was awesome …just to keep up with the honda’s let alone win…..could be a tipping point for Lorenzo having more confidence to push harder and harder knowing he can beat them

    Just caught up with the race, amazing performance by Marquez, stunning! Good to see Lorenzo getting aggressive also, especially at the start. Looked like a deliberate move to intimidate but the boy wasn’t giving an inch!!

    Bloody glad the connection between Maquez/Cal’s bikes was only the bikes, that could have been real messy.

    could be a tipping point for Lorenzo having more confidence

    I thought the same thing, seeing Marquez 1,2,3 bike lenghts behind for most of the race, I could imagine Lorenzo wondering if it was just a matter of time. To race, be passed, get him back and win when 2nd might have seemed inevitable must have been good for him.

    Lorenzo needs to do more than beat MM now doesn’t he? Or rather, somebody else has to as well. He’s a long way back.

    From Crash.net …Yamaha MotoGP riders Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi will give the factory’s new seamless shift gearbox its grand prix debut at Misano this weekend

    Another stonking qualifying from Marquez.

    And it’s great to see how his whole team are together enjoying the performance, just as Rossi’s garage has always been.

    Is Jorge on a roll …come to spoil the young gun’s party ??

    Marquez needs to get his start sorted, ending up behind Pedrosa (and Rossi this time)early on, cost him the chance to fight Lorenzo for the victory. You wonder if team orders will come into play at some stage if that continues to happen.

    He can’t. Even if he wins every race he still can’t beat MM. Not unless someone else helps.

    All it takes is one DNF for Marquez and it’s game on again – not beyond the bounds of reason.

    True. Equally, Jorge needs to stay on too.

    Could be trouble in the Repsol garage πŸ˜†

    The satellite Hondas are way quicker than the Yams or has Cal given up for this year.

    Can Redding hang on and win the Moto2 title?

    Not the most exciting race of the year at the front, but the race for third had plenty of thrills in the last few laps.

    Great race by Redding as well, some brave moves put in there.

    Yep, Cal’s showing no fire compared to the season start and even Bradley is close to him now

    Can Redding hang on and win the Moto2 title?

    I really hope so, he’s showing more determination than Cal that’s for sure

    Any update on the Pedrosa/Marquez incident? Seems it’s official that the contact sheared the traction control wiring!

    Cal sounds bitter, but any truth in the “engine” problems I wonder??

    I also find it amusing how little Marquez seems to give a **** about Pedrosa!

    Seems the kid has immense precision at high speed 😯

    Anyway they’ll both be summoned to Race Direction at Sepang- maybe Marquez may have done a Sam Lowes πŸ˜†

    Making MM start from the back of the grid next race would be carnage entertaining. He’d still podium.

    To be honest, it looked unlucky in that as much as Marquez went into the corner a bit to hot (probably lining up a pass for the next corner), Pedroso seemed to slow right down mid corner (probably trying to mess up any attempted passing move). It took both actions for them to touch.

    πŸ˜† hence my comment about trouble in the Repsol garage. Talk about bad luck for little Dani.

    The Sam Lowes take out of Shakey was pretty full on. I felt excluding him was fair enough, his lack of celebration meant he knew he was in trouble.

    No more Laguna Seca πŸ™

    It’s good to see the additions in south America, shame to see laguna seca go, but 3 in the US was too much.

    Still 4 in Spain though, I suspect they have become too dependant on Spanish sponsors. I think it is showing in a bias towards Spanish riders and races, and diminishing it as a real worldwide sport.

    Shame to see Laguna Seca go, best American track.

    The Marquez V Dani incident seemed a racing accident to me, just very unlucky that a slight touch sheared that cable. Would be very harsh to penalise Marquez on the basis of that incident alone.

    Funny that Dani seems quite outspoken about the need to slow Marquez down though!

    Dani was outshone by Stoner and now outshone by Marquez, on the same bikes. He has long been classified as one of the aliens, but reality is starting to show he is a rung down the ladder from the very best.

    And I’m sure Dani will get a lot of support from his employer in his bid to have Marquez take it easier πŸ™‚
