Its Bradls championship to lose now.

I hope he rides with the knowledge that it is his to lose.

He has had to put up with knowing that Marquez has been givin every advantage that no other rider has received and that Marquez has ridden without any respect for other riders at all, and has not received the same treatment from Dorna that most other riders have.

I hope Marquez recovers from his high side and his reckless riding to compete(on equal terms with all riders) next year.

Karma is a bitch but we reap what we sow.

Did you see when Marquez crashed out in FP, he deliberately dumped his bike in the gravel in a position where when Smith fell he was bound to hit it and break his collar bone? No respect for other riders!

Seriously, I'd like to see Bradl win this year's championship, particularly as Marquez is staying in Moto2 and will be odds on favourite next year. But he's not to blame for the advantages given to him. What racer would turn them down if offered? Like many of the other posters, they do make me want to support the have nots rather than the haves, but Marquez is undoubtedly a great rider. As for some questionable racing moves, (particularly that taking out Redding), he's not the only one to bump and barge in Moto2. On the other hand, he should've been contrite over what he did to Wilairot and came across badly in the way he and the team reacted. Some fans seem to get more enjoyment by treating MotoGP like WWF wrestling, booing and hissing at their perceived 'bad guys', but in that case

@ MM, It might not be Marquez's fault that he has so much advantage over the others, but it is his fault that he has such an appalling attitude!! Spoilt brat comes to mind!!!!!

Surely Marquez is the next Rossi, you can tell by the amount of haters here.

Advantages... yeah, Bradl and the rest have one year of advantage riding those bikes and the boy still kicks their asses.

The boy will possibly succeed in the next years, so relax and don't hate him too much, it's not good for your health.
