Well done Kent. Can not believe Cortese. He's rammed his team mate without compunction in the past and then goes ape**** at Kent for making a perfectly clean pass. Folger, on the other hand, had good reason to be angry at Salom's desperate move.

Cortese got mad at being passed by Kent and took it out by riding into Tonucci and got what he deserved.

ITs just a shame that Tonucci's chances of a win were ruined and that Cortese was able to remount.

Credit to Folger also for a masterclass before Salom decided he could pass 3 people in one corner.

Great to see #52 finally showing the kind of aggression and determination that's needed to win races in this class. His promotion to Moto2 with Tech 3 is now looking well deserved.

No idea why Cortese threw a tantrum afterwards - the pass was clean, and he's put far harsher moves on Kent this year.

For a time there I thought it was going to be a procession.

How wrong can you be??

Still trying to work out how Tonucci managed to stay on. Cortese a bit too excitable and Folger getting better and better. Good stuff.

Well done Danny Kent I feel that result should have come a while ago.

Loved Cortese's strop, it's a nice reminder of how human these riders are, he was 3 corners away from winning the championship but it was his mistake, Kent done nothing wrong.

Great race & what a start to the day of racing, I'm not going to bed!

Feel bad for Folger, got knocked off by a classic Salom move. Good to see Salom accepting responsibility though (although I dare say he did so quickly because Folger looked like he was going to deck him). Tonucci was brilliant. Well-deserved podium. Cortese disappointing. Had a hissy fit because Kent had the audacity to overtake him. Well done Danny! Great race. Last lap was brilliant and to be honest I was laughing so much at Cortese's outburst especially when he got to the garage and started shouting stuff that should be censored :p

Cortese doesn't have any room to complain. And Stoner is trying to share his chip on his shoulder with Kent. The world isn't always out to get you, disrespect you or sell you short.

If it's true that a large number of the Ajo KTM team who would normally have attended a podium ceremony boycotted Kent's first ever victory, then Stoner is correct to criticise them on Danny's behalf. It's extremely unsportsmanlike behaviour and totally unjustified, so maybe it's just as well he's leaving them for Tech 3. It's not as if Kent had pulled a move like Talmasci's on Kallio in 2005 that could cost Cortese the championship.

It's a pity that the boxer Talmasci isn't still racing in Moto2 as I'd love to see his reaction if Marquez had punted HIM into the gravel instead of Kallio, Espargaro, Redding, Wilairot....
