Watching Salom crawl through the gravel after his second crash was very sad...how quick things change!

If Rins wins Valencia with Salom 2nd, we will have a tie in points, AND a tie in wins for the 1st tie breaker. They will have to go to who has more 2nd place finish's to determine championship, which would be Rins.

I think they both should be awarded the championship in that case. Doing a countback on 2nd place finishes is shitty and not really fair.

I dunno haha, it is technically fair I suppose but it doesn't seem right to hand the championship to one guy over the other just because he finished second an extra time or two. If they're equal on wins and points after such a long season, surely they are both the Champions.

I personally think awarding the championship based on countback is perfectly fair. The rules are the same for everyone, and haven't been changed throughout the year. Better to have a single champion than to share it.





Very disappointed that Salom was taken down. At least he still has a good chance of the championship. It'll be a bit morally odd if Vinales wins the championship due to his cousin's actions, so I hope for a Salom or Rins championship.





I don't understand the discussion re: Ana Carrasco She came 18th, which isn't stunning, but is well ahead of where she qualified.

Re: Ana.

I missed the qualifying coverage and went to the results sheets. She was dead last. Without a number next to her name. Didn't pay attention to the fact that she wasn't listed DNQ. That's all.

Ana didn't make the 107% in qualifying, but she did it in the warmup so they let her take the grid. It was pretty hard on the rookies - making them qualify in the wet without even doing a lap at Motegi before.

Make them keep re-running the race until we have a winner!
