Yet again, a brilliant ride from Elias, pushed all the way by the second most consistent rider, Simon. Another encouraging result for Redding, who at 17 is only going to get faster with age. Strange how his tyres seemed to go off so early and then come back to him. Maybe he still isn't quite used to their feel and how much he can push when they're moving about or maybe it was just the wrong choice of front. With the speed he's been showing regularly in qualifying, it's just a matter of time before he gains the experience to find the race set up necessary to equal his grid positions at the finish.

Nice touch by Toni in the post-race interview tributing the race to Shoya Tomizawa. Great sign of respect. If this guy dosent get into MotoGP next year it will be a crime. I don't how many bikes Suzuki are running next year but if their running 2 then i can't think of better candidate on a bike that is a actually improving under Alvaro Bautista.

best moto 2 rider. simple 'tiger' toni elias deserves this win, the championship and a ride in moto gp next year. wouldn't mind seeing him on the repsol honda for a couple of races either. gives dani a chance to recover and toni will have the championship sewn up by malaysia i think. hopefully this can get him a ride at suzuki or lcr honda if de puniet hasn't signed yet (last i heard he was considering an offer from suzuki)

Unfortunately, it seems that Suzuki will be running only 1 bike in MotoGP, (and just 1 in WSBK). It's a dubious economy because the cost saved is obviously a mere fraction of the overall cost of running a 2 bike team. Also, while I understand why Dorna wants to promote the sport world wide by having at least a few non-Spanish riders on the grid, as a fan of the sport I just want to see the best in the world fighting it out regardless of who issues their passports. Ironically, I fear that precisely because Elias IS Spanish it will reduce his chance of getting a ride in MotoGP next year thanks to Dorna's "diversity policy".

Scott looks to be the business and if Crutchlow bombs Scott will be ready to move into his slot. Karel could be the business too next year on the Ducati if he rides like he did yesterday.

sokodu that is a brilliant idea get Toni on the repsol bike when he gets the championship at malaysia:) Hopefully there'll be 3 repsol's next season and toni can jump onto the grsini bike or maybe the repsol. Thsi year he has grown of age and fully deserves the title and a job in motoGp next season :D
