F1/ MotoGP Race results and other things



Good day to all the X-Spiriters out there! And what a weekend it was for racing. Alonso has come out in the press and admitted defeat saying Red Bull Racing pretty much have this season wrapped up. It was a great start for Romain Grosjean, and Vettel slipped to third, but the luck of this man is scary. He drove a superb rest of the race and managed to finish quite a few seconds ahead of team mate Mark Webber.

As for the MotoGP, like Vettel, Marc Marquez continues his rampant run towards a rookie world championship title. Although, for the Malaysian MotGP, Marquez had to concede to his team mate Dani Pedrosa, who didn’t have the typical dynamite start we expect from him, but worked his way up to first place and remained there till the flag. Marquez pretty much has the championship in the bag, but we all know that this is racing, and anything is possible!
