Brno MotoGP Results

082513top-i2

Marc Marquez (Honda) took his fourth straight win at the Brno MotoGP earlier today, and now has a commanding points lead in the championship.  Marquez fought long and hard with title rivals Dani Pedrosa (Honda) who finished second, and Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha) who was the early leader, but ultimately finished in third place.

Marquez has 26 points over teammate Pedrosa and 44 points over Lorenzo.  Since it is difficult to imagine Marquez finishing off the podium, baring a DNF, it will be difficult for Marquez to be overtaken in the remaining races.

    I woke up Sunday morning and turned on the TV at 7:58, just in time to see Marquez jumping on his support team in fits of joy at winning the race. Well … poop. Oh well, I’ll watch the replay on Tuesday afternoon or Thursday night as I usually do on Speed Channel. Hey … what’s this? Fox Sports 1 … no replays? Double poopies. I guess those motorcycle races don’t count for much on this new improved FS1. And where was Moto 3? Somebody be sure and poke me at 8 AM this Sunday, so I don’t miss the English round.

      nope, not so much. we’re getting EXACTLY what we paid for… which is nothing.

    Stoner will get chewed up and spat out by Lorenzo and Marquez if he attempts a come back.

    • Scotty says:

      why would you say that? His 2 world titles? His unrivalled expertise on what NOW is supposed to be a terrible bike?

      • Jim says:

        That was then. He’s been out of the game and Marquez has what Stoner has lost; drive to win.

      • Krisd says:

        @Scotty- bro, I come from just down the road from Stoner, and I worship the guy- OK? But one year out is a long ling time, and he was starting to lose his edge anyway. He could still place 4th to 6th say, but not top 3. So what’s the point? Most Stoner worshipers would agree.

        • Scotty says:

          Fair enough Kris, I’m from Oz myself originally but I am more of the Gardner Doohan era than the Stoner era! CS may have lost the drive – children and wives do that to many a racer – there are more important things to live for. But I contend that if his head was “in the game” and he was on a works Honda he would be top 3 and winning races. He’s the only guy I have seen with the straight up raw speed and daring of Marquez. I like Dani, but he’s not a fighter, and Lorenzo needs a superior bike to win well.

          all the best,

          Scott from Gosford :-)

    Yamaha needs to get the seamless tranny out of development ASAP. This is a runaway season for Honda, otherwise. Props to Marquez, rookies talent is undeniable. I hope the kids stays healthy.

    • Dave says:

      The Honda transmission proved to be of no consequence before Lorenzo got hurt. He is still hurt.

  4. Brian says:

    Pedrosa needed one more lap to catch and pass Marquez??? Don’t think so…
    Another year of finishing second in the standings again I’m afraid.
    Marquez is on fire and not making mistakes. I think his hiccup at Mugello was the only one we are going to see from now on.

    Marc Marquez is the real deal. It was great to watch him reel in the Yamahammer. As much as I like Rossi, think he will slowly run a consistant mid-pack. He had his day – and it was glorious. Now Marc has stepped up to the plate. But if Rossi had ridden a XB Buell – ha ha ha!

    • Jim says:

      Rossi was amazing in his prime and will always be a legend. It isn’t a bad thing when the crown gets passed.

  6. JB says:

    It would be awesome to see Rossi finish ahead of Lorenzo in the championship at the end of the year. I could happen if Lorenzo falls off again.

    Indy is a great venue to attend. It’s easy to get to, the facility is awesome and it’s easy to find somewhere to watch the race.

    • bmidd says:

      They were at Brno.

      • Norm G. says:

        and for those not paying attention, this coming weekend they’ll be at Silverstone. blink and you’ll miss it.

      • Hot Dog says:

        Well Dah, Really? Thank you fellow Rocket Scientists. My point being the race was the same, where Marc seemed to have tire left at the end whereas JLo was without. I saw it live at Indy and I watched Brno on the tube. Is the Honda easier on tires than the M1?

        • TimC says:

          I think our point as rocket scientists (I refer to my fellow repliers but do not acknowledge you as RS material) is “and we were to understand your point, which you got to eventually, HOW?”

          An alternative question would be, “Do you smoke crack?”

          • Hot Dog says:

            If I did, I could be on your level. The point is bonehead, that the machines are the same at Brno as Indy. It’s easier to ride to Indy than it is to fly to Brno. TimC, you got the pipe?

          • Krisd says:

            Hahaha……
            “That’s gold Jerry. Gold!”

          • TimC says:

            So, the answer to my second question is clearly “Yes.”

            Rocket Scientist Advice – learn how to post on topic and make your meaning clear. I can’t believe you still somehow think your point was somehow obvious.

        • MUSTAFA IBRAHIM says:

          I disagree, vehemently. Indy is a horrible track for spectators. Laguna Seca is much better, and yes I have attended both places.

          • Brian says:

            so fans like it better, and obviously based on comments the riders like Laguna better. Sad it is on the chopping block for next year, assuming Brazil can clean up their track…

          • Norm G. says:

            re: “Indy is a horrible track for spectators. Laguna Seca is much better, and yes I have attended both places.”

            I disagree with your disagree. indy is a fantastic venue for spectators. laguna is the horrible track, and I too have attended both places.

    Other interesting things to notice:
    -Valentino on 4th place not way behind Lorenzo…. he should (even if not able to win championship) to finish the championship ahead of Lorenzo
    -First two places Hondas, way to go!!! (Hope this year Pedroza makes it to the end of the year on better shape than before…)

    The kid is for real. Looked like a Lorenzo runaway, but the kid reeled him in and made it stick.
