I don't think the Bradl moment made any difference to the outcome of Marc and Dani's final positions. The only way Pedrosa would've ever got ahead would've been if Marquez had made a mistake and run wide but even then Marquez would've re-passed straightaway, he just keeps overtaking until he's at the front!

Marquez got the run of the early traffic too, out of pit lane. But you can do that if you take the hole shot. Pedrosa looked like he was going to challenge Marquez early on, but never got close enough. Once Marquez settled into a rhythm (if you can call his loose style a rhythm) it didn't matter what DP did.

The fact is, Marquez is simply clearing off with the silverware this year, and Dani has consolidated second place for now...

Awesome ride by Dani and really, really quick! Moves him to a solid second in the championship in front of Rossi.

Unfortunately he is challenging probably the most talented rider to come along in FIVE DECADES!

Can Marq beat Ago's record of 10 wins in a row? I think yes!

Impressive feel for the tricky conditions from MM. Dani kept his head cool and probably thought, " if MM can do it with his factory Honda, I can". It wasn't enough but still worth a compliment.

MotoGp has progressed from boring to very boring with only six factory bikes with a chance and the rest put in to fill the grid, make noise and essentially fool the public(Not us). When will people stop accepting what is spoon fed to them. Not one satellite rider has won a race in an unnaturally long time.

Remember Abe's wins or the Red Bull Yamahas regularly taking wins. Come on people have you forgotten what racing really is. Of course the series has always had have and have nots as long as I've been watching anyways but it has reached ridiculous levels. My point is this, we should only accept a race series where everyone is given equipment that can win period. Would the Germans world cup be legit if the Argentinians had to play barefoot?

Lets have Nicky Hayden switch bikes with Marquez ( I do think Marquez is great though) or Bautista for that matter switch with Marquez and see where he ends up. No amount of talent could overcome those odds.

What is it with people these days when it comes to racing machinery? Antonio Amaro...... I get your point, but what your saying happens all the way through motor racing full stop, if its Motocross, or if its f1, you'll always have the cream of the crop on the best machinery, and the best machinery always has the biggest budget its a fact, If you haven't the budget your not going to have the best rider "fact" my friend this is called prototype racing with huge amounts of money being thrown at the bikes, so you'll only ever see 3 or 4 top riders winning and satellite teams only ever having up and coming talented riders to progress to finely a full factory bike, so chances are you'll never see a satellite rider no matter who he is even MM beating a full factory bike if he was on a satellite bike is doubtful as a satellite bike is always a year behind in technology to a full blown factory bike, different back in the day as every rider had the same bikes hence abe's wins with redbull yams t
