Marquez still locked on course for the title. It might have been better if Terol had managed second just to keep things tighter at the top but the end result seems all but inevitable. I thought Smith rode a gutsy race with a great start and a brilliant save at one point. He was clearly losing out on the straights still due to the engine, poor aerodynamics caused by his height, or a combination of the two, but a respectable performance nevertheless.

A lil bit yawning...xD
Yea it would've been better if Nico finished 2nd or 1st. That's the beauty of 125. Now well if this guy keeps himself from making mistakes, he'd surely be the champion.

Very sorry for Sandro though. He got a great position on the grid but then he had a bad start and he crashed @#$*%!!

Bradley has been disappointing this year, qualifying well to go backwards in the race..and it's not all down to his bike, which is a good package.
I don't know who's advising this kid but they need a slap..he should've gone to Moto2 last year when his stock was at it's peak. There is rumour Debon is retiring and setting up a new team with Smith, who will have to find money.
No 4T experience and a rookie, he will struggle again next year..if he gets a ride!

It's amazing to see how smooth he rides. Today it looked like he was just cruising around but was still in a class of his own. It seems like he doesn't even have to risk anything and still wins races. I can't see him losing the title this year except he gets kicked out again or due to technical problems. Watch this guy, he's got a great future ahead of him.

Playing devils advocate I think the 125s is becoming a one nation series and maybe now is the time for a maximum number of riders from a country rule

Why should a spanish rider suffer because other nations are not quite as supportive of motorcycle racing ?

Maybe British, Australian, and Americans should step up in actually developing talent rather than throwing their kids to the wolves in 600 and 1000 series races. Develop skill first, then attempt to tame the beasts that are 600 and litre bikes.

The english speaking nations suffer from power lust. That' why they gravitate more towards WSBK and tend to lack the skills for Motogp.
