Less emotion in this little room.
I'm inclining into the fact it wasn't a farce, before bike change Marquez had a horrible moment and almost fell, his tires were visible destroyed. I do think the penalty was too harsh for him to be black flagged.
Marquez was catching fast Lorenzo before and after the tire change, but you can bet Lorenzo was going to throw a seagull at him and battle to the end.

MM saw jlo and pedro coming down the straight doing 338kph as he pulled out of the pits, yet he still tried to cut off jlo and getting into his line going into that turn, MM had plenty of room to stay out of the way and still get up to speed. , could of been alot worse for them both getting no points.. even worse injured.

This whole debacle could have been avoided had a test on bridgestone tyres had been conducted earlier in the year giving the teams, dorna, bridgestone amd dunlop a heads up before the race weekend had commenced.

Marc re-entry was dangerous but there was always potential for poor communication and a situations that had never been encountered by the teams before.

Whats done is done but dorna and race direction should look at this race as what happens when poor planning and execution for a race weekend occurs. The test restrictions are potentially causing unpredictable situations come race weekends regarding tyres. Sachesenring, and Silverstone last year spring to mind immediately. Maybe asymmetrical tyres aren't a bad idea at the end of the day.

I still have to wach the race, whe ni weack up only saw the last lap and was still on the sleep mode..lol But i just can t bealivet that Marquez was disqualify, i mean this is just stupid, aim happy for Lorenzo and Yamaha and yes is good for the Champ but i its hard to bealive that Repsol let this happen... anyway sht happens but WTF This was not Professinal from Repsol... Also i only saw the last lap but was going On a great ight beatween Rossi and Cal and Bautista, once again Rossi win the battle but i have to wach the full race to see how it was anyway by the final lap it loocks very intence...

Ah choo. Rossi's no 1 sneeze!

Rossi has been less like the doctor and more like the garbageman this season - always ready to pick up the scraps.

Jorge uncharachteristically had a moment on lap 8 or 9 (the lap before Marquez's foot came of the pegs). Have to agree with the decision to shorten the race. Bridgestone were so far unprepared it's not funny.

Anyway, good for the championship, but too harsh on Marquez.

Wish Cal could have scraped a podium.

V4.

Absolutely mate.
Bridgestone and Dunlop knew the track had a new surface and should have tested accordingly.
