Jerez MotoGP: Marquez continues 100% win record in 2014

Marc Marquez claimed his first ever victory at the Jerez circuit to continue his amazing 100% record in 2014 after also claiming pole position. Marquez was forced to battle with Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi in the early laps as the pair battled for the lead. But on lap three Marquez pulled the pin and eased away from Rossi, who was unable...

After JL99 the closest rider was Dovi, 20 seconds adrift, if you've got the chassis and engine, then even with all the restrictions factory is still by far the fastest. 

Its a shame we didn't see much action at the front after the first few laps, looks like its going to take a miracle to stop MM93.

Have to watch again

I missed the first few laps, as I was making my way back from Box Hill (Bridgestone BT16 pros did a great job!)

The world is running out of superlatives for MM. Stunning ride and qualifying given he wasn't up there all weekend. He's at least on for 11 or 12 wins this season. Cannot take a single thing away from him.

Rossi's form has been super consistent this weekend and as usual his race performance is better than qualifying. If anything his Yamaha was more consistent than the Hondas as both MM and DP tyres started to go off at the end. Good choice on hard front, cracking result.

JL has to be in a world of hurt right now. Oh, and check out the pic of the wee man DP - just excellent:  http://instagram.com/bwinlive#

title decided already?

its hard to think that anyone can trouble mm now, next year is more realistic to any factory rider, but sadly for fans unless ur a mm fan its come and gone really, good to see ducati making progress and hats off to cal for even bothering to ride with the pain.

Yeah - that was excellent.

BOOM!

Bautista, Dovi, Bradl, Esparago (snr) & Smith. Great battle.  For sure Dovi is being pushed and as always delivers under pressure.  Shame about his personality by-pass but that shall be forgiven.  A lot of experience.  As for Cal, whilst he needs to learn when to keep is dessert hole shut, he can still bang in those racing gems and fast laps - just needs to learn consistency. 

Rossi knocking on Pedrosa's door (I didn't say back) for 2nd in the championship  who would've thought it in 2014? One thing is clear - his ambition wasn't outweighing his talent today.  And as Notso said many times - you're only as good as you're last race so by default is agreeing that Rossi is awesome.

Jorge will bounce back, the fella is made of stern, stern stuff.  I still want Peddy to lift that trophy after all these years but without a few DNFs from the Quez of Marc, it's going to be a tall order...  Still rooting for the Cap'n though!

" to make such a stupid mistake was Ben Spies on the factory M1."

And when was that exactly?

As far as i know, Lorenzo turned the M1 into a bike he only could ride and Spies was a world champion for Yamaha just as well, with a totally different style, he had the most torid time of his life on this bike and it took Rossi (and Marquez) for Yamaha Racing to finaly come back to hearth and change the chassis.

This cost Spies his carrer, where was the mistake again?

How to make friends and influence people...

 ...the Crutchlow way.  Hate to throw petrol on Benny's fire but I don't know where to start with this guy.

Always got an excuse at hand.  Tech3 - our bike is rubbish compared to full factory, Dovi has better brakes etc,

Crying about the D16 knowing full well, (before flukily nabbing a factory contract) that the bike is way off the jap bikes

Now he's having digs at Dovi's crew for celebrating a well deserved 5th place and accusing Iannone of 'only getting fast quali times because he's getting a tow'.  Get one yourself or STFU

FFS, talk about talking yourself out of a job.  Maybe he wants a golden handshake rather than quit knowing his team mate and satellite Ducati rider have the measure of him and he's on a hiding to nothing...

@JehovahsWitness

wait, wait .... not criticizing

I just can't find Tardozzi's quote ... do you have a link?

 

So far, I've only found a quote of Dal'Igna over on GPone (www.gpone.com/2014050413467/Crutchlow-Ducati-ha-poco-da-gioire.html), also saying the culprit was the overheated brake fluid and mentioning that the issue is already under scrutiny at Brembo ...
