Ah here comes the DP get out clause. If anything happen because of this incident in terms of race positions then there is something vey wrong with moto gp. MM never took DP out DP fell because he lost control of his machine. The contact that may have taken place did not cause DP to lose control of his bike! Honda need to look at their bike because if something like this can happen from such a very slight contact there is a major safety issue with this bike !

How ridiculous for race direction to be launching an investigation.
The touch was ever so slight and if that damaged a sensor or wire sufficiently to cause an accident then this is a design flaw that Honda needs to fix.
If MM is in any way penalised for this, then MotoGP is nothing but a fix and farce.

Once a situation deviates from parameters a system can cope with (or a failure / damage like this) and the rider is exposed to a MASSIVE change in performance in such a violent manner he has no opportunity or control mechanism. Result? LAUNCH!

So what if a human cant handle 250hp without electronic intervention? Then restrict the output TO a level where the very best humans CAN. Save a fortune on the costs while we are at it.

Then the very best riders in the world can prove who is best using their own skills with even machines an provide spectacular PROPER, REAL RACING.

Enough of this overhyped geeky laptop nonsense.

It was a very small loop on the wire that apparently got caught by the equally small elbow dragger on Marquez's leathers. I'll bet MM couldn't get it to do that again even with Pedrosa's bike on a stand.

The usual Marquez: talented but raging, too self confident and dangerous.
Somebody should calm him down a little and teach him some respect and good racing manners.
Really sorry for Pedrosa, he didn't deserve it.

P.S.: I think that a true champion should overtake his opponents, not hit or risk to hit them every time.
