Marc Marquez remains upbeat after disaster Down Under

Spaniard Marc Marquez refused to be too downbeat after he saw his commanding MotoGP world championship lead slashed in half after a disastrous Phillip Island race.Marquez knew going into the Australian clash that if he scored eight points more than Yamaha rival Jorge Lorenzo, he would clinch a historic first premier class crown.A dramatic weekend though dominated by major Bridgestone...

It is what it was

Wrong calls by all and sundry,from sole tyre manufacturer primarily to Repsol strategy on the day,to race direction. The weather forecast for Motegi looks half decent for the weekend. Lets hope Bridgestone don't find the surface too cold for safety. Hell. GP certainly has taken a wrong turn since the tyre war was abandoned. The Ducati blokes have to be delighted with Bridgestone's developement circa 2007 through 2013. Backwards,backwards and backwards.

Inasmuch as the Championship is concerned,Marc better keep one bloody cool head from hereon in. One red mist moment and George will punish him big time....And that no dought is George's game plan. 18 point deficit is still a huge lead with only two rounds left. George needs to make Marc **** up.

All credit to Marc though. We seem to forget he is an absolute green rookie at this level rather than an old time blisteringly fast tallent within the class.

throught process...

Good or bad, the race change applied to everyone.  What is the cumultive annual salaries of the Repsol folks there Sunday?  How hard is it to read a pit board?  How hard is it to understand "Come on lap 9 or 10, but if you come in after that, well, you will get penalized or your tires may explode." ?

Maybe we should go back to the days of the riders having to push start their own bikes.  Or better yet, have the Umbrella Girls do it...

I cant' believed

 I can't believe what some of people was wrote here , about Marquez , first, " hopefully he will get one for riding straight onto the racing line, and into Lorenzo." man  hast you got a soul at all...Lorenzo was admit that he was one which make "deeper breaking but mark wasn't make good estimate of my speed, and then I ran into him, fortunately all ended well"..Second...if there was somebody which was deserve big  penaltys that is Bridgeston, because on start of WSBK championship similar situation was happen whit Pirelli, and management BRIDGSTONE knew about it very well, but they didn't move they ass to prepare appropriate tires for the track in Australia, for bridgestone was much easier to create ad hoc rules for the use of tires and recommendation for estimate durability of the crap tires, the question is, what if Marquez,whit his driving style and good set up of motorcycle, can drive 14 laps,whit that same tires,  but third and finaly All what was happen in Australia was shameless array of decision against Honda and Marc on first place, everything else is BS. Never mind...after this for me Marc is Champion even if he would not show up on the start grid for the end of season, because this race is shameless rrobery of young man which is obviously to fast for greedy trolls and whelty sponsors of FG Horhe...dont forgetit same thing was doing to young Senna

How easy would it have been for race control to word their instructions like that? But they said come in at the end of lap 9 or 10... having completed lap 10 were they supposed to ride back up pit lane? In their haste they left space for confusion & misinterpretation.

Payback for Puig and Pedrosa.

 MM didn't get the penalty that Dani or Jorge wanted after Aragon.  

Tin foil hat time.

Could the unbelievably stupid pit-board BS be HRC throwing Pedrosa and Puig a bone to pacify them?

The points that Dani lost at Aragon have now been taken away from Marquez.  Handy eh?

I can't believe MM's crew could be that stupid and I don't see what they would have gained by having their rider stay out on a cooked tyre.  So confused???
