I hope he gets better soon so we don't have to hear about after each race. That being said, I think he was less affected by the "mystery illness" and more so by the arm pump that was affecting him this weekend. Unfortunately, his left wrist is still bothering him. Gritty race nonetheless in light of also the injuries he was carrying from the highside!

Absolutely, would love to see him back at full health for the rest of the season, to max out the championship battles at the top there. Seems such a shame to go from the three of them equal to injury and illness interfering.

You could see, again, just past the halfway mark (he was on it for longer this weekend) him starting to not handle the power as effectively, and then he went backwards.

Great to see Hayden getting a decent result though, hope that is a sign of an improvement there, and not a one off due to the track. And I can't believe how Lorenzo rode with that shoulder! He'd been looking awesome all season, but that was just insane.

“Now we'll focus on trying to find out the root of the problem because racing in this condition is not much fun,". Well, racing is not much fun anymore for Stoner, period.

I hope he gets better, but just in case it gets worse, it seems like a perfect time to bring John Hopkins back. Give him Casey's ride for a few rounds so Casey can get better. Everyone will be reminded how great John is and give him a MotoGP ride next year. Hopkins would have beat Hayden today... no problem.

I really hope they find something, otherwise it may turn out to be a rare case of yamahaitosis fever... Seriously a good race and hope Stoner can get fixed, cause its better when he's in the mix. And this race confirms that Lorenzo is one big time tough little Spaniard for sure eh? Congrats Pedrobot, gutsy effort, heck you almost smiled for a second.

"You could see, again, just past the halfway mark (he was on it for longer this weekend) him starting to not handle the power as effectively, and then he went backwards."

Indeed, it was very noticeable in this race that his pace dropped off very seriously at a particular point, until then he'd been looking good and all other things being equal would certainly have been in the mix at the end.

Must be a very frustrating situation for someone who so badly wants to win and a real credit to him that he's prepared to soldier on for a few points.

Lets hope him and Jorge both get back to full fitness as soon as possible, they're the future of the class!
