Indianapolis MotoGP: Marquez makes it ten in a row

Marc Marquez has become the first rider to win 10 races in a row since Mick Doohan in 1997 after taking victory at Indianapolis today. Marquez didn't have it all his own way, the pole sitter was beaten to the first corner by Andrea Dovizioso and Valentino Rossi among others and had to wait for his chance to take the lead. An...

other than falling off, can Marquez be stopped?  probably getting a bit late now to lay that bet where he'll clean up the whole lot.

It really pisses me off to see

the Ducati given an advantage on one hand and taken away on the other hand. All their progress mean squat on sunday as long as they'll have only the softer option available. All this farce of a rule does is to create the illusion that the competition is tighter during practices.


Dorna giveth and Dorna taketh away, frigging hypocrites

You always know when the Terrapin's been well beaten

The forum goes a bit quiet.

Entertaining race for a wee while. The crazy 'give with one hand, and take with the other' Open tyre rule really working against Dovi and the Duke. He looked every bit as good as the others for the first six laps.

The Terrapin looking a bit desperate as he pushed riders about. The rider lean angle comparison with Marquez told a story about the Terrapin's ultimate lack of pace. The old boy just can't get the old girl heeled over to carry speed.

Solid race from Lorenzo after getting duffed up at the start. The real Jorge is back.

Dani after a disappointing weekend, reasonable damage limitation from him. Fast at the end again though?

Marquez. Ho hum. Genius in action...again. Mick"ll going "grrrr' though.

Dorna?

It was Ducati's choice to go open, no one else. They new the benefits and the limitations. 

Anyway, great effort by Dovi nonetheless.

how good are those yamahas

 beautiful machines, on par with the Hondas. Only a certain man from Cervera prevented a rampant Yamaha 1-2. Well done MM

Ever the provocateur eh Nostro ?

Are you referring to the 35 year old 9 times world champion who is still good enough for podiums against the fastest riders on the planet.    Form is temporary - class is permanent !    Time and Tide waits for no man however he can still give them something to think about.

That 250 style wasn't so bad today was it ?

I doubt Mick'll be too upset it's taken 17 years for someone to equal that record ... of course we have to remember that 4 strokes are easier to ride than the bucking bronco 500 strokers.

Why the blubbing

 MM and JL were using aggressive riding all last season and most of this, so why the blubbing when Rossi is doing it.  As was said before the race, Dovi would get in the way until he found his rightful place further down the field.

 

Yes Rossi was beaten, but the orange pantie brigade are still pissed, because he is doing way better than they expected. Still, he is still on course for 2nd in the championship.

Thanks Captain Obvious. Ducati was in big trouble and went F2 to avoid the development freeze. The decision was a no brainer. 


On the other hand the tyre rule brings absolutely nothing to the table; besides an artificial rivalry during practices. How do Ducati know whether they're really making progress if their tyres fall into pieces by mid-race ?  It's a a stupid, two-faced rule.

 You're right Druids, the 'open' is there to aid development, so why penalise them with limited tyres,
