Just goes to show you that even if a rider is a world champion, doesn't mean he has his wits about him. he was riding like a child with no regard for other riders safety. It wasn't one isolated incident. Penalty should have been more severe to let him know this won't be tolerated. Should have been disqualified from the race and put on two race probation. At the highest level of racing this cannot be tolerated. Pure selfishness and ego problem.

MM deserves to get penalized for his aggressive passing. I can see the issue at the start being forgiven but there is absolutely no reason why he should be bumping people off their race line. He was clearly faster than everyone so the passing opportunities for him wherent limited to only a few corners.

I'm exited to see if they make him start from the back in Austin.

I think Zarco should also get penalized. All in all not a good start having to many conflicts involving several riders. But with Yamaha still being unable to set the bike and Jorge started to on Dovi, I think Honda should have easier season if MM just riding like last year.

Zarco didn't make contact. The only reason Pedrosa crashed was that he hit the gas on a wet part of the track.

#93 will still destroy the field. Like some were saying, the only thing that can get in the way of MM is MM. I blame the energy drinks.

And what's the prize for getting pole? A stupid Tissot Swiss watch 👎🏿
You get zero MotoGP points for your qualifying position. MM is so much stronger than the others in consistent fast lap times over race distance that he would win even if he started from last on the grid or pit lane. He just needs to keep a cool 😎 head and make clean passes.

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in

So Zarco will be at front row and he's so pumped up with last year result at same circuit. Must be interesting to watch.
Let's hope Crutchlow doesn't crash this time and ruin his pole.

No surprises in Qualifying from P2 lap times
1) Crutchlow Honda
2) Pedrosa Honda
3) Zarco Yamaha
4) Lorenzo Ducati
5) Marquez Honda
6) Rins Suzuki
7) Iannone Suzuki
8) Dovi Ducati
9) Petrucci Ducati
10) Rossi Yamaha
11) ViŮales Yamaha
12) Miller Ducati

Honda will be the favorite with Zarco and the Suzukis staying close.
Maybe a surprise from Lorenzo ?
The factory Yamaha team is in deep 💩 as their bikes spin up rear tires and move around too much. Also they lose more pace to tire degradation in the last third of race simulation runs than the other manufacturers. So unless they can pull a rabbit 🐇 out of their helmets tomorrow during warm up, they look to be FORD !!! (thatís On Race Day)

I don't know if I would call it drama. Once the riders see what actually happened on the replay it should be pretty clear that it was just a racing incident. We will have to wait for the interviews .

My take is that Pedrosa took the line that was left open, Lorenzo was just trying to get back to his line and didnt see Pedrosa was already at the spot he was aiming towards. It was unfortunate for all three guys It was going to be a battle for the 3rd podium spot those last 5 laps. Looked to me like Lorenzo had a really good chance to finish in that 3rd spot but, i feel the worst for #26. He seems to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time and I am sure he is under pressure because his ride for 2019 is in jeopardy.

Nah, no drama. Lorenzo shouldn't have tightened up like that but it's not malicious or anything, just a racing incident. Still I can't imagine Ducati is enamored with him much at this point.

The way I see it Pedrosa had racing line, JLo and Dovi went wide therefore slower. JLo shoulda head check before getting back into line.

It was pure racing incident. Everyone is used with JLo wide sweeping lines including Dani so it was really a surprise that JLo managed to tighten his line.
I'm just sad that Dovi got hit again. Maybe he needs to ride with garlic necklace to avoid bad luck.

Well the MotoGP website sure is...'High drama in Jerez: Marquez wins as contenders collide' LOL!

Definitely racing incident and Dani's continued back luck. As the saying goes, "If it weren't for bad luck, he'd have no luck at all". I feel so bad for Dani, every time it looks like he'll do great one year, something like this happens to him. Funny though, when I saw the two Ducati riders go wide, I was thinking, go Dani, now is chance, then BAM! Oops! Did I say go for it?

The commentators were saying that if it were not for MMs difficulties at Argentina, he would most likely have 95 points at this moment in the championship. They were comparing it to his 2014 run where he won the 10 in row. The other riders are going to have to keep an eye on him, if he keeps it clean and no more repeats of what he did in Argentina, he might walk away again this year. Love him or hate him, he's one of a rider!
