    MotoGP 2015

    Miller is testing his bike for 2015.

    A season in Moto GP2 might have been an alternative.

    well this was a disappointing finale with marquez doing his best to be rear gunner for lorenzo
    I find it hard to believe that for the entire race he was within .3 secs behind lorenzo but never mounted a single attack and the only time he drove aggressively was to stop his own teammate pedrosa for having a go at lorenzo in the last 2 laps.

    It was a farce and leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth so much so that the spanish crowd even broke out with a few boos at the guy
    you can't argue with results

    I'm a huge Rossi fan but I don't subscribe to that conspiracy stuff. Marquez had the bike dancing around all race and all 3 of the front guys were consistently quicker than Vale. It's sad to admit it but even without the penalty today I don't think that Rossi had the pace to get close enough to take the tilte.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    The only person who really knows is Marquez. I dont think Rossi lost the title yesterday, I think he lost it in San Marino in the wet/dry conditions, but for sure yesterday Marquez didnt mount one challenge on Lorenzo. I dont think any of it is Lorenzo's doing (althought the Podium shenanigans in Malaysia were questionable), but I do think the race yesterday was there for Pedrosa to take until Marquez got in his way. The only thing I know now is that its made a shambles on MotoGP, and thats a shame.

    Well, someone is putting up a farce, that's unquestionable. The real question is - who is?

    I'd point out that Lorenzo is somewhat unpopular in Spain - of course he has his supporters being a Spanish riders, but I think that Pedrosa and Márquez have a bigger fanbase. He's been booed since Friday by a sector of the crowd, many of whom were actually wearing Rossi T-shirts, so we don't really get to read anything into that other than he's not a national hero.

    Spot on a very bad taste, in fact marquez's actions over the last few race's was diabolical.

    The 2015 MotoGP season is looking like a fix at the mo. The antics of the season should be investigated. It stinks of rotten egg. very dodgy indeed.
