Interesting race, nice to see Dani up there again. I'm not a fan but I do think he's essentially a decent enough wee fella and certainly too talented to end up on the scrap heap at his age. Good race by Lorenzo, sound result for Vale, very good damage limitation by Casey.

But exciting?,................no! Should have been, worlds top five riders on the same track within a few seconds of each other and running a similar pace. But I've seen more excitement and action on track at a kids minimoto race.

Something about this formula just isn't right.

I thought it was exciting in that almost everything that happened was unexpected. Rossis awesome first lap, Stoners disastrous first couple of laps, Lorenzo catching and passing Rossi, Melandri, Vermeulen of all fighting with Stoner, Pedrosa outbraking Rossi, and more. Without Rossis mistake midrace we couldve even seen a the Yamaha boys dueling in the last lap.
It can also be that its been such a long time since weve seen an interesting race that Im getting a bit over-excited about this. :p

After doing some search in motogp.com...
Who said Honda's is uncompetitive machine? well... Dani proves it was wrong. Also Dani's is on top spot again in term of maximum speed.

Damo, heard it said recently that the internet was a much nicer place 5 or 6 years ago because the cretins in society still hadn't figured out how to use computers.

You prove the point nicely!

How unpredictable is Honda and Pedro ffs? Good showing from the gnome though, and hopefully he can keep it up.
Bit of an effortless masterclass from a hungry Georgeous George, however I wish he wouldn't **** around for so long at the end of the race. What is it with these euro egomaniacs?
Dekelo, shows the depth of your appreciation of the sport. Typical Rossi fan though.

Congratlations to Lorenzo, Rossi and Pedrosa :)

I missed most of the race, saw the action from 5 laps to go :( What happened like, I mean this line says:

"Rossi suffered problems on lap 15, and the resulting 'moments' suddenly handed Lorenzo a 1.5sec lead."

Could someone tell what problems please? :rolleyes:
