Zarco has got form for this sort of thing, it seems hardly any time since he pulled the same move on Gino Rea, with similar consequences. It's about time race direction handed out a penalty for him, maybe he'll think twice before making any more boneheaded and risky manoeuvres.

15 places for an incident that did not cost anybody any championship points as opposed to no penalty for costing pol a potential 20 point score,for christs sake where is the consistancy and more importantly where is the justice,especially when eurosport coveage showed zarco was clealy embarassed and apologitic to pol in park ferme

Zarcos crime is to be other than a Spaniard with Dorna running the show.
Marquez can run people off the track and have regulations changed to suit him because he has the "right" passport.
Long term this will murder the sport.

have to give a Zarco a big up after this, he took the bimoto to 3rd, and then was very decent in park ferme afterwards towards Pol and Gresini.

Been checking lap time sequence, Pol set 10 1.53 or 1.52 which is the highest, that formation flying clearly helped him early doors, but still!

Marquez set his hot lap early, and struggled. Redding is very fortunate to be 8th, Bradley set 8 in the 1.53 / 1.52 range which matched him with Iannone after Pol... de Angelis had very few hot sectors, but is clearly tweaking machine.

My call tomoz is that Pol, Marquez, Smith, Ianonne, and De Angelis will break quick and stay!

Win, De Angelis or Iannone, with Smith as wildcard, though i cant see him quick enough in last laps
