Epic race - One for the ages!

Gotta say, despite the 125/Moto3 fairing and handlebar bashing, Cortese needs some form of censure from Race Direction.

Yeeeeesssss
Amazing, mental and absolutely fu*king brilliant race. And finally FINALLY Danny Kent has found his elbows and what they're for.

Brilliant, just brilliant

And I'd like to see Steve Day as permanent replacement for Moody, he's turned out to be a fine MotoGP commentator.

That was a ridiculously amazing race ! Vinales judged it perfectly. even though i am german, i agree with Stoner. Cortese moves are RIDICULOUS, and yet no bitches about some of the moves he does on other riders, which are FAR worse than anything Marquez does. I mean he smacked straight into the side of Kent. Which makes me think Marquez's rivals try to make mountains out of mole hills because they are threatend by how good Marquez is.....

So good to see Danny Kent on podium, hope he can take it to the next level and win.
As for Cortese, did he suddenly have Maldonado's racing brain incorporated into his?

i know marc marquez is in moto 2 but if i was his team manager i would be complaining about sandro cortese's riding marquez gets done by race control for his riding yet corteze's riding is down right dangerous (and i'm no fan of marquez)but i think the only way race control will do anything is when he hurts somebody just like marquez

One thing came to light. Danny has no team mate! I can't believe behind closed doors someone hasn't had a word in Cortese's ear. On at least two occasions, He certainly deprived Danny of any chance of winning the race. Vinalez picked up the change out of Cortese's madness
