Please explain to me why Zarco got penalized, to me it looked like he had the inside line and Pol tried to go around the outside and went into JZ
It was my thoughts aswell. If Pol kept his line JZ would have passed him in the inside. Yet Pol changed his line and the made contact. Wonder what their thoughts would be now after they both have looked at it umpteenth times?

The general concensus is definately that Zarco was unfairly penalised. He was unsighted and had the racing line. Pol squared off the corner having already started the event by running wide trying to chase BB  :o. Where did he think Zarco was going to go? The KTM crew mobbed Dorna who then made a bad call.  Zarco's long short lap was a stunner.  :thumleft:

And then Pol cries about this track's "long lap" which is a token penalty, in his opinion. ::)

Did not see that comment. He needs to man up like BB and take responsibility for his mistake. Klaar. He will be the token penalty next year with Honda  :pot:

Pol Espargaro is miffed since he lost out to Zarco's legit move and his rookie team mate BB taking glory  ;) As the supposed senior in the KTM garage, things don't look too good for him after the first couple of races ! Also, his very generous HRC employer is seeing all this playing out and can't be too comfortable with their future racer's performance.

Commentators said there was hard words between Pol and Brad a couple of wees ago. Anyone knows what that was about?

I thought it was between Brad and Oli after the 2nd jerrez race.

Yes that is what I understood as well. At least Brad had the balls to accept accountability and apologize for a fuckup.

I watched it again now, they definitely mention Binder and Olivera.

But you have to love the commentators words as he crossed the line: “KTM has a new king”

Awesome race by Brad, on one lap towards the end he had a big wobble coming out of a corner, and he just picked up the front wheel a bit and got on with it!

If Pol had stayed on, he was looking strong. I wonder how that would have turned out?

Certainly a double podium for KTM, but there might have been a good battle too.
I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

Yeah I hope they don't have an arrangement like Binder and Oli had in moto2, they should both be free to challenge each other.

If Pol had got past Zarco and Morbidelli he would have had to ride out of his skin to catch Brad, who was turning fast lap times right until the end. I honestly don't think he would have had the tyres or the skill to do that. I think there's a bit of envy there, not least because Brad went round the outside to pass him in the beginning, which was quite a move.

Oli is also turning out to be a bit of a twatwaffle after BBs promotion from moto2?
