It was a painful day for the rookie...lessons learned.Well, what was a great race turned into a major fubar. All the way through, up until the missed exit I had this feeling Marquez was gonna bin it or something. Turns out it was worse than that. Jaysus Hayzoose on a cross what a screw up. Bet there was one hopping mad Japanese dood spewing harsh when that was debriefed! Wonder how you translate FFS into Nihon-jin?

I think in the post race interview with bbc, Jorge said that he had run wide in the corner and that's why they collided. He also mentioned the speed difference and that Marc couldn't really see him there since he was going so much faster.I have half a notion that if Marquez hadn't clipped Lorenzo on re-entering the track he may not have been black flagged. Wasn't much of a get together but with their history I'm sure Jorge was more than a tad pissed at the young lad. There was quite the lengthy discussion amoung the officials and Honda crew(s) before the bomb dropped. But the crew should carry as much of the blame as anyone, they're the ones using th esign boards ffs! Pedrossa blew the speed limit coming into the pit too, not much of a deceleration lane to haul them suckers down to 60. Like Colin said, it's a race, let us f***ing race.
Maybe not, this is exactly how Michelin found their way out of F1All this because of control tires by one manufacturer who didn't bother to test the surface & just assumed supplying the same tires as last year was the right choice, despite re-surfacing. I wonder if they'll make the same mistake next year?
read an interesting article. Apparently there are problems in the HRC garage. No one spotted the mistake because only Marc and 3 other team mates new he was going to do it.....the rest were not let in on his intent.Well here is what I found:
Looks like HRC just fucked themselves. I can't believe an entire race team wasn't able to realize the mistake they were making. Someone should get fired over this.
