tyre conservation, that's were rossi and team yamaha edges the others, if these were true, (that is rossi uses both soft tyres both on front and rear) rossi was able to conserve those tires the whole race length and win, unlike some who complained of loosing their rear or front

Just a Bridgestone's mistake.Any experienced mechanic & rider(Rossi) can find out the compound easily.For Hard tyre-The tyre colour is deep Black.For medium tyre-The colour is Black.For soft tyre-tyre colour is lite black.But keep it secrate Stoner can make an excuse form it

The one stand out thing about Rossi compared to his rivals over the years is that he has always had the skill to ride around tyres that are going off in the latter stages of a race. Even in 2007/8 when Michelin were supplying tyres that were inferior he still managed to stay at a competative level. Lorenzo and Pedrosa should have had the advantage on Sunday, but Rossi's experience came into play once again to level the playing field. Love him or hate him, the guy is the best of the best at the moment and it shows.

Can't see Bridgestone running out of paint for the six time world champion's tyre and can't help but smile at the thought of Rossi and Burgess removing the line to confuse the opposition riders before the start.

I'm SURE they didn't and if they did it didn't make much difference - except that Lorenzo may have expected he would be stronger than Rossi at the end.

Perhaps a few riders (Puig would be first in line for Pedrosa) will ask Bridgestone not to bother marking their tyres either...

Rossi/Lorenzo bike setup is far better than all other teams.The M1 never looked untidy at any stage during the race.IMO the tyres will last the whole raace if the bike set up is spot on.Stoner Ducati was lifting and sliding the back wheel into corners which has got to slow you down

If Yamacka are forking out 14 big ones for wonderboy, you could easily be sceptical and imagine that they (and DORNA) could rustle up a few more sheckles to pass under the table to ensure the golden goose can reign supreme to the delight of the Drays, Morgues etc, just so they can sell more dud R1's and television rights for a couple more years. I'm not a sceptic, but the tyre distribution process needs to be transparent. I'd like to hear the riders opinions after this little Yamacka faux pas. There will be questions!
