I thought someone would have posted this already.

Congratulations to Marquez on winning his 7th All Classes World Championship! A mighty result, especially when you consider the competition he has had to run against over the years.

Sunday's Japanese GP was another enthralling race, with tactics, passing and all out racing. What a series. Commiserations to Dovi, he would most likely have won a World Championship by now, if not for Mr. Marquez.

Yes, another great race all-around. Marquez used to be the one falling in the races - now it's everyone else! Great to see it won in Japan with the Honda boss.

Fantastic result at the home of Honda! Woohoooooo!

Congratulation to Marc Marquez on winning his 7th All Classes World Championship (including his 5th MotoGP championship)!

Great to see Marquez celebrate with the team, fans and Honda's boss.

Commiseration to Dovizioso for crashing and not being able to at least come second in the enthralling race from start to finish.

Now all that's required for the icing on the cake is Repsol Honda Team to win the Team's championship and Honda to win the constuctors' championship! Yeah!

Funny how Marquez dislocated his shoulder, after the race on the cool down lap! He had a "high five" with Scott Redding, which did the damage. Watched him get off his bike with the help of his brother and 2 pit crew, I and the commentators thought it was going to be some fancy celebration [which he tends to do, much like Rossi used to]. Next thing they've taken his helmet off, undid his leathers, pulled out his chest protector [or something similar] and lay him down on the ground to fix his shoulder, not that it was obvious that's what they were doing at the time!!

Hope he's OK for Phillip Island this weekend.

the race was good, but not excellent by motogp high standards. :)
it was nice see cal up front without making mistakes. he even overtook mm once few lap after the start.
yamahas form from thai was one off.
dovi blew it once again. i epect dovi to be biggest threat to hondas next year again.
to win at home race and clinch the title with so many honda employees, fans, flags and everything was wonderful.

defenietly worth of waking up early on sunday morning!

Yeah, it wasn't a great race by recent standards, but with the championship being decided it was still nice to hold my breath until the end.

I must admit I switched it OFF once Dovi fell down, was really sad to see him finishing the race like that (wouldn't have switched off if I weren't with my family, but having lost the fight there was no point for me to keep watching under my personal circumstances).

Either way, glad to see MM took back the reigns after some very challenging races. Hope these two will keep delivering entertainment until the end of the year, and that Lorenzo will heal fast enough to ride the Honda 100% next year.

Well he did have a pretty neat celebration with the retro-graphics game console that had 7 steps for each Championship and in which it gave him a victory helmet for winning the game. :)
