MM is great, love watching him ride, always know he'll give a good show and be on pole or win as a 20 yr old. amazing really. Dani had no realistic chance at the title anyways, if he thought he did, he was dreaming.

How many crashes do we see over the course of any given race weekend? Of those crashes, how many riders pick up their bikes, begging for a push from one of the corner workers? Who knows if their helmet made contact, making it no longer approved for safe usage, let alone if their machine was damaged in a not so obvious way until it launches them to the moon! The contact between MM & DP was so slight, it wasn't directly responsible for Dani's crash. Honda must relocate or beef up the design of such sensors if such light contact will cause it to leave a rider without TC. Better yet, lose TC all together!! MM shouldn't be penalized in this instance.

Marquez is by no means riding in a dangerous way. No more than any riders in the past have achieved wins, and in fact he has been more controlled than a lot in the past.

This incident, as much as it was a bad experience for Dani, was a racing incident. If the sensor is so exposed, then Honda are to blame. And who is to say MM actually damaged the sensor, in brushing the tyre with his fore arm ?????????????

So whoever here is saying Marquez did the right thing may have really enjoyed when Simonceilli,Tomizawa and other riders were killed,good news to all those who is saying Marquez did right you all will enjoy when many riders will be killed in coming months and years when Marquez will kill many riders.

Where was the race investigation when Rossi knocked Stoner off and Stoner couldn't continue the race.

10's of what-ifs and why not's in every race with many worse than what just happend.

Bike has many sensitive parts, that's the way they are. you can damage a lot of things by just dropping a bike standing still. a small tap by a another vehicle is good enough to cause severe damage. This is not a road going bike for HRC to develop massive mechanical protection. Reduction of weight is important to. This is not the first time Marc run wide and touched/hit someone. So small tap or big tap can cause severe damage plus injury or death. Marc needs to calm down a bit or probably ride bumper cars if he like 'touching' his friends bike while riding.

Brain, a bog standard s1000 BMW makes close to 190 rwhp.
As for action against Marquez, I don't believe a rider who causes an accident should benefit in any way.
It seems that nearly killing another rider taught him nothing, zero points might quickly teach the little twerp some respect.
