    What a shame the Ducati's struggles almost ended his career. I would have given one of my toes to see him winning multiple championships on the duke but guess that wouod have been too much joy to handle.

    Another great race, and a very interesting championship with many serious contenders.
    In the end my guess is it'll be between Marquez, Rossi and Vinales (in no particular order); I still doubt Ducati and Dovizioso will be able to fight up to the end.
    Anyway I wish we'd have similar fights in F1.

    Amazing race today, the fight for the lead was far more exciting than the last 8 years of Formula 1 combined!

    Another good race, this championship is really shaping up to be interesting and unlike F1 I really like all of the top 4 that are fighting for the championship.

    Well, seems Dovi and Ducati are doing rather nicely actually :) ... so far, of course.

    Totally agree. Wow! Top 5 actually... Six races to go and still five riders with a chance at the championship!

    Hope Rossi can held up Marc as 2015’s payback

    Incredible race. In the rain, top two in the championship battling for the win. That's what motor racing in any form, two wheels or four, should be. Pure racing.

    Spectacular! I wish Rossi was part of the mix, but spectacular nonetheless.

    Another great race. By far the best racing series in the world. The best.

    Dovi and Ducati still fighting - it will probably not be enough in the end but that was nice nonetheless.
    And another evidence that Moto GP is what motor racing should be, take note F1.

    Yep, they need to win the last race and Marc needs to DNF. Very unlikely although that already has happened this year at Silverstone.

    Right on the mark, it has been a great season and plenty of action, F1does not have as much action in an entire season as one MotoGP race. Nice job by Dovi today.

    What the heck is going on with the factory Yamahas? Both Rossi, and especially Vinales, were just nowhere close to being part of the lead pack, yet Zarco was right there.

    While everyone was questioning why Lorenzo wasn't letting Dovi by, the reality is that it would have made no difference at all, which is probably why Dovi didn't seem to make anything out of it.

    Hats off to Marquez! This kid is scary good, and can very well surpass Rossi's records once he calls it a day.
