    That was a new lap record on his first flying lap before a couple of guys pipped him and Alex Marquez obliterated them all.

    The race tomorrow has been brought forward by 2 hours to try and avoid forecast rain. It will start at 4pm our time (Vic, NSW).

    You notice there's no or no BS technicalities in the sporting regs of motorbike racing? (Except for a period where Rossi got let off the hook in the early 2000s)

    @marcmarquez93 has been given a 6 place grid penalty and will start tomorrow's race from 7th

    @marcmarquez93 was found to be riding in an irresponsible manner being slow on the racing line and disturbing another rider

    Marquez has had plenty of light penalties and rule bending done for him too. Impressed and a little surprised he got done for dawdling on the racing line but he's a repeat offender and got what he deserves.

    They wouldn't have done it if the title was on the line

    I think they would have. They pinged him earlier in the year for the same thing (he got a three grid spot penalty) so I think they'd still have done it again, particularly in the knowledge he'll likely be in the top three within the first three corners.
    If it was a racing incident then I agree, they would issue some wishy-washy penalty.

    Did you think I was younger or my posting style is all over the shop . Thought my question had relevance. Even the commentators questioned it .

    Idk what question you are talking about.

    I did think you were younger. Wanting Rossi to win? After the early 2000s Rossi has won plenty. What happened today was the reverse of what happened in the early 00s, so you would've already known that. I enjoyed the result from that aspect.

    Jack has had a lot of questionable tire choices this year and I don't think any of them have paid off.

    I can't stand Rossi but geez he rode well. Small mistake under pressure had massive consequences. He deserved to at least finish second.

    Thnx K. Yeah that was my question re jacks tire choice. I will put it in the mystery files. I wanted Rossi to win but pressure.
