Well, all in all, I don't think the Duc had a front-end issue in the accident. Possibly Rossi pushed too hard in the wet, trying the impossible. It was a Rossi mistake, not the bike.

Also, I saw the marshals helping Rossi first cuz he was trapped under the bike. It was a matter of helping the guy running more risk of getting seriously wounded.

Stoner said (your ambition outweighs your talent) to rossi while he tries to apologise. What a joke. No wonder the fans dismiss stoner, he needs to grow up.

What Rossi did to stoner was no different than when Pedrosa took out Hayden while he was leading the championship. Just earlier in the season. It was an overly aggressive pass attempt with no chance of success that could potentially cost stoner the championship.

Great race for Lorenzo, kept his cool and brought it home in 1st!

Crashing aside, the stand out riders today were Simoncelli and Crutchlow. Simoncelli could have won that race, and would have certainly grabbed 2nd. Crutchlow could have got passed Hayden going by his laps times too.

You have to feel for Edwards. Seems like the engine just gave up? Rossi/Stoner, well im not going to state the obvious on that one as im still somewhat annoyed about Rossi spoiling what would have been an even better race.

Interesting race overall though, lots of action, with no one hurt too badly by the looks of things. Enjoyed it!

All the Rossi fanboys on twitter were b1tching and complaining about Stoner's comments to Val. What's he suppose to do? Hug and kiss him? Do you think Roberts Sr or Doohan would have been pleased either? Give me a break. Val wrecked Casey's race and put him in a 20 point hole to Jorge in the title AND placed him behind his teammate Pedrosa. He has every right to be pissed about what happen and I don't blame him.

It was actually a dig by Stoner when he said to Rossi 'your ambition outweighed your talent'. The other dig was amusing though i have to say....'was it the shoulder giving you problems then?'

I have respect for Stoner saying what he did. Yes the little book of what racers should and shouldnt do says otherwise, but id be just as hacked off in his shoes and saying what he thinks is all good in my book. Its all ok Rossi apologising, but you can guarentee he'll have a good laugh about that behind closed doors. Shame.
