BT sports have the live races for the next 2 years in uk , do you mean eurosports have highlights show or live races not in uk ?

Yes Eurosport have got the rights to the highlights package, channel 5 used to have it but they lost out. Monday at 6pm on Quest then repeated later in the evening.

Finally managed to catch up on the highlights. Zero context in the show, had no idea why Lorenzo was struggling at the back. Commentators just said "he's suffering for obvious reasons" or something like that. Had to google it after the highlights.

Jack Miller... now I'm no expert right, but... tossing aside your seat in the middle of the pack seems a bit... well.... dangerous?

Luckily no one was twatted with his seat!
I thought he should have received a 1 point penalty on his license for that dodgy move.

I agree, would have thought bare minimum hauled up in front of the stewards

Now I dislike Crutchlow a lot. I think he is a massive knobhead.
And it WAS a rolling start, regardless of what he says about the clutch being in or it only being an inch... but yeah penalty loop would have probably been a more fitting punishment than a ride through.

Nothing will ever top Lorenzo's jump start in Austin a few years back though :lol:
