Anyone watching?
Great racing in Moto3. The usual last lap cat fight.

Watched MotoGP, had fun seeing Marquez doing the impossible again, unfortunately he crashed, hopefully he's ok. Well deserved victory by Quartararo
The heat in Jerez is insane, I'm originally from that area, and they were actually lucky, it can still get warmer this time of year

That high-side looked like he'd done himself some serious damage....but the first save and subsequent chase he put on was incredible.

Confirmed broken humorus. That will make things interesting considering the season calendar.

Marc is just an incredible rider. To go from 1st to last and then back through the field challenging for second with 3 laps left is just insane.

What a shame about the subsequent massive highside, that tyre punt visibly hurt him, they’re talking about possible nerve damage, I certainly hope not. Hope he makes a full recovery, his headspace didn’t appear great today and in spite of that his skill is and always has been in a totally different league to the others.

I was hoping for more from Zarco, pleased for Dovi on third and a great race from Fabio. MV did well to hold second.

Commentators on Aussie tv said that the crash that ended Doohan’s career was at the same corner.

We have been saying over the years that MM biggest threat is himself. You can only crash so many times before major injuries start.

Ironically yesterday i said ..I hope M. Marquez goes to another manufacturer before he gets seriously hurt on the Honda from riding around the Hondas chassis/handling problems..Every year its harder for Marquez to ride around the handling problems because every year the RC213V has more power on the worst chassis in MotoGP.. BTW the next manufacturer has to tell M. Marquez he is not a Race Engineer or they will end up with same situation Honda is in and Marquez cant keep bouncing back from these injuries forever.

BRAD BINDER also had a spectacular ride. Was 23 seconds down after running off track and rode through the field to 6th? or was it 8th? Excellent ride none the less.

Well round 2 was disappointing! Maverick makes a silly mistake, Rossi whizzes past and spends the rest of the race backing the pack up and doing his best to block his team mate, the only one who stood a chance of mounting a challenge to FQ allowing Fabio to build an 8 second lead :( That aside, fab run from FB, shame the Ducati let go, that could have been a fantastic moment for him, sad to see all the other retirements too. Alex finishing 8 looks great, until you see the list of people who were out of the race!

Bit of a weird race really, conditions clearly didn't help. Can't fault FQ. Moto GP needs MM in it!!

Hi Nito, I also hate blockers (pedrosa was the worst) I didnt see Rossi Blocking Vinales til the very end of race . Rossi was outbreaking Vinales and even opened up a gap at one point. But .. when traffic dissapated, Vinales was getting on gas sooner/ better drives off corners/was faster.. Rossi was the best..passer.. of all time IMO (which i consider a skill onto itself) and combined with his race savvy can still make him hard to beat on a good day.

With Rossis race savvy i always wonder how he would do with a power Advantage on the field ?
