LAxtreme's recommended comment is a laugh out loud riot,, thanks. Rossi this Rossi that,, and he impressed? And some are still drinking the "Rossi Developed" Cool-aid? Too funny. Any rider who spends five years on the same bike is going to have an "influence" on it's performance, but please! The bike was made in Japan.
And the Race start? LOL,, The Duc has always had a stonk-strong motor.

Nothing like the lack of objectivity here at the crash blogs.
Impresed? Lorenzo for being for not giving up from start to finish. Once again, the Yamaha has the weakest motor on the grid.

1. Rossi was brilliant on that red monster. Save the front end which no one of the previous riders could managed. Get off the line unexpectedly as he not usually does as from 9th position to 2nd in first corner but mingled with the pack and ran outside. Very happy to see him finished the race but love to see him on podium soon. GO Vale........!!!! GOD SPEED.

2. The other which i like the most is Moto2 Rider #29 Andrea Iannone. As to me he is simply a replica of the GOAT (may be Rossi trained him but not sure) He is brilliant on the track fight hard and eventually take a deserving 2nd position. Start from a low 16th on grid and fight through the field to become victorious for 2nd.

3. Feel sorry for #93 marc marquez. he is also a determined rider and always very consistent. Hope he could give better of him at Jerez. Good Luck to all the aliens and sub aliens for the safe and entertaining season.

Crikey,@ F1,what did you expect ? :) Last year a Crash Poll saw Rossi voted Rider of the Year or something.LOL.
Given past history,how dare you question the rcommended comment !!!
Anyway,back to topic. George,Casey and the rookies.
I forgot to mention Marlboro Million commitment in my earlier post. Good on them too. Exceptionally well done Phillip Morris !!!!.

27 or 1....sorry mate but you are quite wrong.There was never going to be an easy victory for Jorge at Qatar,even though he is reinging World Champion.He even admitted during the post race interview that he was at the limit trying to stay with Casey.
Casey has dominated the preceedings sinse the first time he got on that Honda.Lets not forget he has won at Qatar 4 times sinse 2007.I personally think Jorge rode like a demon this weekend to claim second.

Bradley Smith did exceptionally well! I was disappointed when Scott Redding came off as I had him down for a podium finish even though he didn't qualify very well. I have to say I had Valentino down to finish 6th or 7th, so he didn't really disappoint - I still have every faith in him though. Cal Crutchlow also deserves praise, riding with injuries is never good, so pat on the back Cal!! Onwards and upwards for all concerned !!!!!! (Just hope it's not gonna be a year for strung out winners!)

Even if Rossi were given a washing machine to ride and ended up in a 'great battle' for last place it'd still bring much needed excitement to the sport. I liken Rossi to Manny Paquiou in boxing for those of you who follow other great sports...always smiling and enjoying it, but with the KILLER INSTINCT!
