Austrian GP SPOILERS!!!

What a race! That was exciting starting about halfway thru. MM93 will be world champion again this year. Congrats to Ducati and Dovi! Even Jorge looked good out there.

I think the last turn attempt of MM was at the borderline.
They could have easily crashed.
And MM took it into account.
Good thing was that Dovi expected it and only this saved it.
If Dovi would have taken the turn as the laps before MM would the fool.

Marc's plan was to ram Dovi off the track and Dovi dodged him and got the win. Marc is dirty person and a dirty rider, he makes exciting TV though.

Harsh judgement in my opinion.
I lean more towards the red mist excuse. He is not one to ride for second place, if there is even the smallest opening.

Certainly very entertaining and a lot better than F1 as a spectacle.

I always enjoy Moto3 too. Mir has almost got the championship sewn up.
