I'm not a Marc Marques fan, but I truly feel that last weekends race was a huge cock-up and that Dorna should ideally remove the points given to all riders, reverting back to the champion how it stood before the Philip Island race.

Marc got disqualified by a silly rule that is not in any rulebook but instead was 'made-up' just that morning, in a micky mouse race that had been shortened twice by a bunch of well paid clowns.

Lot of pressure on him in this race. Lets hope he doesn't do anything crazy especially with the predicted wet race.

If he can keep his limits in check he can score most valuable points of his career.

WTF??? that is the dumbest idea ever.... Rules were clearly layed out to all teams and riders and everyone knew them and accepted them, it was a safety issue and the teams decision/MM whomever it was, it was there own fault. Ignoring a Safety Guidance for whatever reasons is wrong and should not be accepted.

MM is a rookie and uptil now he has shown no real signs of that, his body language when he came in said he KNEW he had made the wrong choice or he missed the board and made a mistake.

Dani lost a chance of a win and a fight in the title due to bad luck and and error from another rider, life is not fair but in this case Race Direction where correct (And I bet Dorna hated it!!)

I like MM and I think he is a great new addition to GP but I hope that Jorge (or a really long shot now even to mention dani) wins the WC this year, this has turned back alittle of the Good Luck MM had mid season with both Dani and Jorge missing 2 races from Injury (3 for Dani)

I'm not buying the fiction from Honda!
If only 3 or 4 of MM's team planned this braniac strategy, you'd think they might have told the blokes who starts the engine and removes the tyre warmers?
Why would the RCV be boiling it's guts out of the radiator overflow and losing VERY valuable heat from the tyres at the start of lap 10 if their strategy was to come in essentially 2 full laps later before the end of lap11?
They must be very concerned about the kids fragility if they're going to this length to take the blame!
Next year will be tougher, no 'rookie' excuses to blame for his many mistakes, and there will be MANY!

Man that is priceless!
All the hard work by the guys who were not disqualified wiped out at the stroke of a pen!
Yeah right,i can just see Dorna trying that one on!
Biggest load of nonsense i have heard for a while.

Honda insist confusion over the emergency rules caused the mix-up, although it is unclear how far up the chain of command Marquez's strategy went.

I think it went further up the chain than Honda are going to admit!
