Your prestation at Sepang and all of that %#?! you gave us after the race really confirmed the impression you gave all year - on an other team, you wouldn't even had a shot at the title.

So congratulations for this one, enjoy it !, probably be your one and only.

Bye 125cc, I'll remember these crazy Japanese-packed races of the nineties !

What on earth do you mean "all of that s**t" after the race? If you'd done your research you'd know that Nico got heat stroke and had to be treated with a drip in the medical centre for a few of hours after the race. You obviously do not understand the sport or the lengths that these riders are going to achieve their dreams.

Was he the only one out of 50 (125 + moto 2) riders that had the absolute necessity to go lying on the grass instead of pitting in ?

They were all suffering like hell, but Terol had to found some kind of excuse for the last laps mistakes that nearly costed him the championship.

That's what I understand anyway !

Hot favourite at the start of the season and despite all his best efforts still looks to be favourite to win the championship on sunday.Should have really sewn it up ages ago given the massive equipment advantage he has had

@Tom: right, because every human body is built the same, came off the same assembly line, and we all have a stamp of approval from inspector #498 tattooed on our behinds. Grow up.

Tom, as you would've seen if you'd been paying attention during the 125 race at Sepang, after Nico crossed the line he ran off the track twice and was wobbling a lot on the bike. He parked the bike up and DISCREETLY went behind some armco to lie down. He pulled off the track because the crippling cramp in his legs and the high chance of passing out meant he had become a danger to himself and other riders. He was then taken immediately in the medical car to the Clinica Mobile. Interesting that the medics didn't think he was 'acting', isn't it? It was no kind of show, he was suffering and he saved himself, others, and his title chances.

I understand why Terol is planning to play it safe, but it will spoil the race for me if he does.

I would prefer he battle for the win against Zarco, and let the chip fall where they do.
