Stoner almost lost it in the same left hander as well as Barbera, so Simoncelli wasn't the only one to get caught out. Stoner crashed a lot in his first year on the LCR Honda, not to mention his Ducati years, and Lorenzo had plenty of crashes in his first couple of MotoGP seasons, so don't write Simoncelli off unless he is still crashing at the end of the year.

Actually a brilliant race by Pedrosa and Lorenzo. It was far from boring. Pedrosa did not reveal his hand, and played Lorenzo like a fiddle. He was very "courteous" with Lorenzo, pushing him along, and Lorenzo did not crack and make it easy, but Pedrosa had quite a bit more in hand than Lorenzo, and played it out nicely. The announcers kept talking about Lorenzo outbraking Pedrosa, but he was sitting up (not very far, he's short!) and backing off way before the braking zone. I thought it was pretty good. Great passing and aggression on first lap by Rossi - Dovi had just a little too much motor for him, though.

Wonderful race by Dani, what a storming pace he had til the very end! Nice to see him happy on the podium, seems the injury is history.It's not may favorite rider but he really seems to be a very nice guy. And when he's on the mood, like today... almost unstoppable!

If you looked at Pedrosa's reaction in parc ferme after the race you could see the injury is far from history and still causing him a lot of pain. The difference is that it's obviously no longer causing his arm/hand to go numb so he can now just grit his teeth, ride through the pain, and still be in full control of the bike at the end of the race.

Does anybody think that Lorenzo & Stoner need to grow a pair....moaning about everything, they're entitled to their opinion but omg they need to shut up dissing everybody else and concentrate on their own riding styles because they've both made mistakes themselves.
