What racing! After the weather left an empty programme The Japanese Motegi Grand Prix’s at Motegi really made up for the wait.
Lorenzo did all he could to take the MotoGP battle down to the wire, whereas Marquez rode an intelligent race in second, though he had much work to do off the track too after apologising hard for THAT t-shirt and helmet design, tweeting :
“My special helmet was designed to be a symbol of thanks to all my Japanese colleagues & fans so I am very sorry if it caused any offence.”
Good on him to have the strength of character to apologise. Picture of the helmet here: https://survivalofthefastest.wordpress.com/2013/10/25/motogp-marquez-has-special-motegi-helmet-design-and-a-poor-choice-of-t-shirt/
