I'M VERY HAPPY! Yesterday I visited the doctors and they gave me the green light to return to competition. They have been 9 difficult months, with moments of uncertainties and ups and downs, and now, I will be able to enjoy my passion again!
See you next week in Portimao!!

MM said he initiated that big slide into Turn 7 because he hadn't entered the corner right cos his body isn't up to speed, so he slid the rear to make the apex

He's not hanging back at all!

I'm really not a Marquez fan particularly, but I am SO hoping he comes back and smashes it this weekend. There is no doubting he is still the man to beat.

I'd love to see a proper ding dong between Marquez and Mir.

Off for a year.

Comes back. No tyre moaning. No excuses. Quietly goes out and proves the point.

In his head he's still got it, the body will catch up. I think the rest of the field have a fight coming to them.

So good to see 'Happy" as the overall vibe.

I'm not, last seasons racing was much better without him!

I'd love another season like last year...yet a return to a full, around the world championship is where it's at.

It's too early to be thinking he'll return to winning 12 out of 19 races like in '19.
He's been smiling when returning to his seat but these 3 days have shown are mistakes through fitness. He's shaking his arm. He's tired.

It'll be in his mind nestled there. I don't care what you're made of or your determination, passing through a trauma always leaves a chink in the armour.
Growing muscle back to full size? I don't know if they always do or what damage can't be fixed. His bone should grow back stronger.

He's a spectacle to watch like Casey or Shwantz, Be good to see him really doing his thing. I don't really have an allegiance to any one rider. Happy to see an underdog rise up. Shout out to Sam Lowes.
Who's the underdog in MotoGP these days?...Savadori. Marini ..Bastineanini (sp) Rossi?

I like Takaaki Nakagami.

Should be good. Bounce!

This.

Although, to be honest I've never taken to him, so he wasn't missed.


Lowes crash. Oooyah !

Disgusted at the coverage of Marquez this weekend.

He's being treated like some kind of martyr, because he had another massive crash this weekend. Constant rhetoric about how tough he is, how amazing he was in Portimao.

No-one mentions he hit another rider, almost caused another accident there. Hit another bike's wheel.

So he takes himself out this weekend in practice, needs x-rays on his leg etc.

I'm wondering when people are going to actually call him out as a danger to himself and others - as he has been for years. He's just been extremely lucky so far IMO. Whenever he's not winning he takes dangerous risks - wondering which round this year we'll see him cause or have a massive massive injury.

They let Fenati race again.
Rossi is still racing.

If they're not trying it's no fun at which point might as well watch F1 and snort sleeping pills.

Marco Simoncelli. Pulled some seriously bad/dangerous moves. Never spoken about.

Rossi wasn't adverse. 'Your ambition outweighed your talent' amongst more than I care to remember.

Marc was a prized twunt in moto2. His from the back of the pack overtakes in the top class have sometimes involved bashing people out of the way.

It's a fine line eh. Ayrton Senna another one.

Until there's serious injury or worse and the powers that be take career ending action I can't foresee a time when the red mist doesn't reap rewards.

I think MM93 is in for a tough time, he's chasing his own tail.
What I mean by that is, he bins in practice, or doesn't qualify well, which means he has to put everything he's got on the line to make up the places.
Which is exactly how he ended up missing a season in the first place!

He needs to accept he needs lots more track time, before he can challenge for the podium and suck up the lack of points, until he's race fit!

Honda must be really regretting putting all their eggs in the Marquez basket, despite their denials that they would never do such a thing.

It's not the riders, it's the bike. And now the only person who could ride the bucking bronco isn't at peak race fitness.

It'll either come or it won't - watching him is still better than listening to Lorenzo carp on from Twatter or listening to Rossi bleat on about tyres.

I defy any normal human outside of that group of facers to bin it into the barriers at 180km/h + and then hop back on and be even remotely competitive. I just think some of the social meedja moaners should stop and think about what that takes. That's not just 93, they are all wired the same way. That's why i don't think anyone who isn't prepared to do that has anything valid to say about those who do.

What MOTO GP will not be is a boring procession and we should appreciate that.

Roll on the race!

The riding post concussion rule needs setting up and enforcing though.

Another good race. Nice to see the hard workers rewarded with podiums.

Acosta is something special isn't he.

Well deserved for Ducati / Miller today. Unlucky for FQ.

And no doubt annoying the haters, MM93 in the top 10 with no controversy at all.

Awaiting the news that Fabio will be having the arm pump operation.

Good racing in all classes I thought...unless you're a JMcPhee fan. I mean c'mon what was he playing at.

Although Jack was kinda gifted the win it must've buoyed him up for the next few rounds which suit the ducatis.
