Regarding the title, unless MM screws up, it's his again. Yamaha don't need to go back to the drawing board, they need a new one!...

Default MotoGP Sepang: Rossi wins as Marquez crashes out

Starting from the middle of the front row, Rossi got a perfect start and led strongly from the front. Despite his grid penalty, Marquez wasted little time in moving forwards and by the midway point of the race, the World Champion was up to second place behind the Doctor.

With seven laps to go, Marquez started closing Rossi in and over the next three laps the gap between the pair dropped from 1.3 seconds to just 0.6 seconds. With a battle between the pair shaping up, Marquez lost the rear end of his factory Repsol Honda going into the first corner with just four laps to go.

It robbed fans of a chance to see a last lap battle between the pair at the scene of the crime from 2015, however Rossi deserves credit for forcing a mistake from the Spaniard who was riding impeccably.

Johann Zarco was promoted to second and in turn Alex Rins now found himself on the podium. Not content with third position, Rins moved under Zarco on the final lap, leaving Zarco to third position.

Maverick Vinales was fourth and was a victim of his poor qualifying position, with pace to match the front-runners, unfortunately he was just too far behind to have a real impact.

Dani Pedrosa enjoyed his best result since announcing his retirement in fifth position, just ahead of the subdued Andrea Dovizioso who was sixth. Alvaro Bautista was back on his Angel Nieto Ducati and beat out the Pramac duo of Jack Miller and Danilo Petrucci.

It was Hafizh Syahrin who rounded out the top ten with his own piece of history. The first Malaysian to compete in MotoGP at his home Grand Prix, Syahrin fought through from the back of the grid to finish tenth.

Aleix Espargaro was eleventh, whilst Franco Morbidelli was the top satellite Honda in twelfth, just ahead of Stefan Bradl and Taka Nakagami. Bradley Smith rounded out the point scorers in fifteenth position.

Couldn't be bothered reading it, but the beautiful game is well gone, couldn't care less at this stage who looses , the real losers are fans of GP racing from the 70's 80's 90's 00's and then Dorna ruined it, prefer to cut me grass at this stage

The racing has generally been much closer and more competitive than the massive gaps seen in most of those periods. Wsbk was more popular than moto gp because it had gone to shite by the end of the 90s.
But hey - it’s rubbish

Without fake news, motogp is nothing ! - felt for Rosie though, he gosh darn crumbled under pressure at Malaysia, time to hang up his boots? Suzuki's going well - especially after Rins threw a match to it during the week

you want to be watching moto 2 & 3, some quality racing, less divas, and all bunched together, with less difference between bikes,
