Well if they're trying to create a level plating field with equal engines and tyres, surely the next thing would be equal weight. We want to see overtaking in the corners not some flyweight winning it on the drag out of the final corner. Fair play to marquez for winning but the difference in speed out of the final bend was ridiculous and that wasn't just down to rider skill.

If that had been a six-lap club race at Cadwell, Luthi would have been striding thru the paddock looking to take Marquez by the neck and shake him out of his leathers...........maybe the Swiss and the Spanes dont understand the VALUE of fisticuffs..............!!! !!! !!!

As much as I was happy to see Marc come back... the move on Luthi was very low class --- he clearly moved off line and Luthi off track. How this was not protested or penalized me is shocking.

As much as I dislike Marquez, because he seems like an arrogant prick, he pulled a move and pushed Luthi right on the edge just about enough room and Luthi got scared and backed off. Fair game, I think. Good race though.

marquez is giving us what the fans want good hard close racing! you all complain when nothing happens in moto gp but then when a good hard over take happens you complain! luthi hit marquez on the arm/ wrist after the race which is just as dangerous if not more as it would be much less anticipated then an over take in a race!
the last racer that was criticised for good hard racing was Sic and then he ended up not doing any of his over takes because he would get penalised.
enjoy the racing while you can before no one dares to over take because they will be afraid of been penalised!
this is also in not way disrespectful to marco as he was and still is my favourite rider!

'What goes around comes around ' as they say.

Next time Marc pulls a move on someone, I I bet he will get more than a 'tap on the shoulder' - like Luthi did.

Luthi was the clear leader, had then line and goy stuffed by Marc.

Stay tuned...
