    The first race of the season and going to the last corner guarantees another great season of moto gp .With almost 7 riders in the leading group till the last 3 laps was great to see like a moto 3 race.Great riding by Zarco to lead till the last 5 laps from pole till his tyres gave up .Dovi rode a controlled race to take the lead towards the end ,Marquez always the threat at the last corner of the race did well to stay with the Ducati till the line .Rossi the best Yamaha rider in 3rd rode a brilliant race managing the tyres well as did Crutchlow to finish in 4th.Vinales came from 14th after the first lap to finish in 6th.
    Moto 2 -Nice Last lap battle between Bagnaia and Baldassari with former finishing 1st and a lonely Alex Marquez finished 3rd.

    So unfortunate, marq bumped rossi.. Good that he went to rossi to apologise.. But hope this doesn't fuel rossi fans as in 2015..

    If it wasn't a wet race, he would have been on podium..

    Think it was Moto 2, 2012, where marq starter almost last on the grid 25th and won the race..

    This would be his second such instance..

    I thought Marquez would have been black flagged for riding in opposite direction..

    Marques was more a second faster that anybody after his ride through..

    Rossi, what luck. If there was asphalt outside the track would have probably ran wide, unfortunately landed on wet astro-turf.
    Pedrosa also went off line and highsided...

    Hats off to Miller and Cal...

    The most dramatic race I have ever seen after 2015 Malaysian GP.

    Miller standing firm on slicks while everyone on Wets and going in to pits to change, Ride through pit penalty for Marc for riding on opposite direction on grid(of course what can he do at that situation - unfortunate penalty).

    Post ride through, his pace was a marvel to watch and of course pushing Alexis out of the line and getting a drop a position from race direction, unfortunate clash between Marc and Rossi - God not the rivalry again.

    More than Rossi and Marc, their fanatics are the one fueling the rivalry more through social media. Some of their comments are so disgusting to even read.

    On a positive side, there was healthy race between Cal, Miller, Rins and Zarco(a delight to watch). Unfortunate for miller going wide.
    Rabat in Top 10! finish (Maybe his bad days are gone).
    Syahrin again getting points and in Top 10.
    Good fight from Top Gun Mack to fetch the 5th place.

    On the whole best weekend ever. This puts up a lot of expectation on Next race (COTA - Let's see if Marc make it another win in a row).

    ridiculous race (like most wet races), and exciting towards the end :P

    the rossi-marquez soap opera and conspiracy theories get reignited again
