You know right from the first day when all the bikes go out on the PI circuit from day one Casey will lead in free practice back the 1st position up in qualifying then on race day no one will touch him as he will run off into the distance and win by a big margin basically Jorge rode like Rossi did last year only that he couldn't make any attacks on Stoner.

Nice honest account from Jorge there.Admitting that it was too difficult to catch Casey.He wisely decided not to risk crashing trying to catch him and it was the right decision.Why risk a crash and possible injury when you have already won the championship?
Jorge didnt need the points thats for sure.And he beat his team mate.So all in all a good race from the new champion.

@Lorenzo. Correction, it was Ducati's race! Even a rider of Hayden's skill could fight it out with Rossi, while other riders just faded after Rossi overtook them.

Total horsedung Bambang, if you check you'll find two of the three bikes on the podium were Yamahas! You only have to watch him slide the thing around the fast turns at PI to see what Casey is bringing to the table if 4 straight wins there doesn't tell you something.

some of you are Bens Pies mad I honestly dont see why? It would appear this guy is a hard worker and keen to win races...but consider this: How keen is one to not even bother practicing in bad weather conditions (not knowing how the weather is going be on race day) every lap counts no matter what the conditions are like, this is racing and the dedicated who put the time in reap the benefits of bettering their starting positions and or even winning races. It's not going to be just handed to you on a plate as it would appear by his actions, wonder if Yamaha will accept this behavior next year!

@Stavros. 2 of 3 top bikes are Yamaha.

Why did you conveniently left out the 4th? It should be 4 of the top bikes are 2 Yamaha and 2 Ducati.

Sure Hayden was 4th. What did you expect? You didn't expect Hayden to beat any of those 3, did you? But it was a very, very close 4th. And for a rider of Hayden skill, it was amazing. And that my friend exactly is my point.

Oh my god, Rossi only 3rd !! Ten seconds behind his team mate, it's over, he's lost it... finished.....
Until next season when he will win races on the Ducati.
