Just want to add the Marquez is lucky that he is behind them form the start, He could not make those lap times on his own, even after passing Dani, It took a couple of laps before he gaps Dani, a man with tire problems. Marquez is very good in following others and can make their pace his pace. Lorenzo and Dani is different, when they don't have pace, they could not get any faster even when following someone. That is the difference with Dani and Marc, but with Cal, give him a factory bike, and he is a danger to this 3.

If dani smart he should release marc earlier.From the second half of the race he knew he can't hold marc and lorenzo but he try all he can to hold marc.

I remember in 2010 rossi let lorenzo earlier because he knew he can't hold lorenzo at that moment.

If dani let marc go ealier then marc had a good chance to beat lorenzo.Dani real rival is lorenzo not marc.

If marc win and lorenzo second its better for dani because it create more point gap to lorenzo and it could demoralize lorenzo.

After beat dani marc do everything to catch up lorenzo and at it cost him a lot.

If Pedrosa does not win the championship this year, he never will. He has never had everything together from the onset of a season in the large displacement class. If he doesn't get it this year, Marc and Cal will be tuned in and on fire next year. And, there will also be Jorge.

Marc had no chance of catching Lorenzo, he couldn't even lead Dani without crashing.

Dani even said it himself in the post race conference, if Marc was fast enough he could have passed and followed Jorge, which completely dumbfounded the ignorant press agents. Lolz.

Some people have no clue & just want to believe...

The Battle of this championship is settling between Pedrosa and Lorenzo, they are both fast, both have excellent equipment and MOST importantly they are both consistent. Who will it be? I predict Pedrosa.

HG,Yes MM was greedy yesterday and paid the price.That was the little bit of luck i was talking about.If he had stayed upright,Pedro was in for 3rd place not 2nd.
Also,Crutchlow appeared to be reeling him in.Another few laps and he may well have caught him.
Hence the sigh of relief at the chequered flag!
But points are points,and points make prizes!
