I damm stupid place to put a sensor,If it was a sensor? this is not the first time a Honda has gone wrong for Danny see Japan & Australia, MM should have 25 points deducted to make for a better end to the season

Yes Yes Yes Leave Me Alone

I find it extremely annoying that some people want to see a penalty... are you guys insane?!

First of all, the move was an absolute non-issue, Dani was barely pushed off line, and if the sensor hadn't broken, we'd have forgotten about this already - and secondly, Marquez is such a breath of fresh air, I love his antics and demeanor, thats what Motogp is all about to me... are we trying to punish that out of him with pointless penalties and warnings?! We as fans should be encouraging his style, not whinging!

#1 Clearly the Honda's sensor/cable is badly placed or too delicate. Why not connect it to the gearbox output shaft?

#2 This really calls BS on those "experts" who tell us that the top riders traction control is set to do almost nothing. It needs to be dumped. MotoGP takes a lead from F1 in all sorts of ways, lets also take a lead on the electronics. Drop traction and wheely control and let rider skill decide the outcome.

Marquez is an amazing rider. The point of racing is to get round the track faster than anybody else which it seems he is capable of. However, not at any cost. Even in racing there is a duty of care to your competitors - that's why there are rules.
Last Sunday's incident was a non event. It's Marc's reputation that has caused all the interest.
The problem for Marc now is, given the press he is attracting, if he hurts somebody his reputation will be ruined.
It will be interesting to see if he can maintain his speed and protect his reputation - or will he slow down. This will probably be his biggest challenge.

Let's remember that MM93 is a rookie. He's finding his feet. He's learning what his motorcycle can and can't do. He's learning the characteristics, habits, idiosyncracies of the other riders. When he has absorbed all that we will see him develop into a rider who can overtake anyone without risk to either them or himself.
Marquez brings an excitement to MotoGP which has been missing for the past few years.
Subdue him and we'll be back to boring processional races.
A quiet word is all that is needed.

@kg7 I agree.

@Tetley. Normally I would agree that a quiet word is all that is needed and I wish it was so simple cause I think Marquez's great and a potential legend. The problem is, Marquez has been penalized before, he's been into all sorts of controversies, and I'm pretty sure many many quiet and not so quite words have already been spoken to him especially before he moved to motogp, but nothing seems to have an effect on him.

Lorenzo sais that only by banning him from a race will you make him change his ways, but I' m not even sure that would work, (although I'm sure it would work fine for Lorenzo's tittle hopes )

I starting to wonder maybe this is the only way MM knows how be fast? maybe he'll never be able to ever tame his riding?

If MM is punished in a very negative manner, DP becomes instantly a toxic asset to Repsol Honda. Why ?
It's putting a spoiler on it's rising super talent.
Let's be real, mathematically DP is out of the championship not because of the fall but because of his own lackluster all year.
