Unacceptable from Espagaro. On pole and with the pace he had there is no way Marquez should have been able to come back and win that race.

Once he managed to catch up to Marques after letting him through by a silly error he seemed unsure about what to do with his superior pace and nearly clipped the back of Marquez a couple of times.

Marquez is a very good rider. He has shown that on many occasions. However what ruined this race for me is the obvious show of how superior his bike truly is. The only reason Pol even had a chance was because he has tremendous heart. And in all honesty, while Pol is and always has been humble regarding his racing with Marquez, Marc pretty much stopping it in the final chicane to stop Pol going through doesn't sit particularly well with me. To me it almost looked like a brake test. But that's my own opinion and I'm sure others will differ.

Marquez's domination of Moto2 this season - the way he can almost play a tune on the gearbox on the straight and pass riders at will - reminds me of Terol's championship winning season in the last year of 125s. What's happened to Terol's amazing talent since moving up a class and changing bikes? Of oourse Marquez is avoiding having to spend a year in a satellite team thanks to the rules being changed to suit him, so he'll step straight onto the best bike again.

Marques shows once again why he deserves to be on the factory Honda next season. Almost last going into first corner (due to his own error), and he recovers to win the race.


(His mid-corner speed was also incredible.)

@mr moneybags
A mere 2 km/h advantage doesn't mean a rider can win from virtually the last place on the race start. Show respect where due. Go check analysis of the race first and then come moaning here.
Today was just another masterclass by Marquez. He is a legend in the making. Period

What??that's a silly mistake from Marquez..he's lucky that no one hit him from back..that'll be the end of his career..
Hats off for Pol..but it's a shame that he can't win..

I watching the Moto3 battle on the edge of my seat knowing that it was going to be a thriller, but this one despite the closeness at the end was not interesting. It was so obvious that Marquez was going to win because of his speed on the straight before the last possible overtaking spot.....

I already can foresee the battle between Marquez and Lorenzo one year from now on. If Yamaha will not find something magic for the straights during wintertime, it will be a Marquez snorefest for the years to come. Anyway for the first time (except 2010) I will support Jorge all the way !One again next year(s) Casey will be sore missed ! And I dare say even by most of his haters !
