"The Spaniard's factory RCV was quicker than Lorenzo along the straights, but he didn't look to have a decisive straight-line advantage..."

What self-contradictory nonsense! Another example of journalists perpetuating an unproven 'fact'. Pedrosa's bike is fast, not because its a Honderrrr (copyright Toby Moody) but, because he is small and light. Spending most of the race getting towed by the Yamaha allowed him to save fuel for the last few laps and gun it. Don't insult Pedrosa by suggesting his success's are due to his bike or give Honda undeserved praise. Remember, their budget far outweighs the other teams put together yet they've had a consistant a#se kicking since Burgess last showed them how to set a bike up.

Might have been a bit of a boring race, but I'm still happy for Pedrosa. Hopefully being fully healed up, he'll get his title this year. Probably his best chance with Rossi on a rebuilding year, though Stoner might prove to be a threat.

Great race and fantastic win by Dani (and Lorenzo, but that's a given, these days).
MotoGp just needs 3 things: Pedrosa fit, Simoncelli not falling and Rossi in-form.
The first requirement seems to be fulfilled.
The second will happen sooner rather than later and the third hopefully will too.

In the meantime, go Pedrosa go - I wouldn't mind to see Pedrosa win the championship.

Early days, yet, but exciting days...

"Whether Pedrosa had been backing off in previous laps, or simply got a better exit on that lap, isn't yet known"

Well, I have no doubt in my mind that he was holding back. He would break quite early in every lap or else he would pass Lorenzo every time. That was pretty obvious.

This is the FIRST time in my life I have seen Pedrosa actually pass anyone to win a race in motogp. All his wins have been checkouts. Props to hum.

He has actually become faster now that Stoner is in HRC. He admitted it in motocuatro and got grilled really bad.

lol jorge said the same thing casey said about valentino that dani was following him like a lapdog and that his pass was as dangerous as Marco. So other words Jorge and Stoner really dont want anybody following them or passing them at any time within a 5 bike length radius.
