Poor Dani. He really has no luck at all. Going down mainly to another rider's fault and breaking (AGAIN) a bone. And in the end, isn't it IRONIC that the race direction "gave" some extra points to his main rival, by punishing Simmoncelli and having Lorenzo go up one place????
BTW, I think the punishment to Simmo was exagerated, unless he was already in some kind of suspended sentence (which he might be, I don't know) - it was a risky overtake, but he didn't take Pedrosa down like Rossi did to Stoner in Spain!

Concerning Rossi, he did manage to do a better race than his pratice times would suggest, but without the Pedrosa / Simoncelli Rossi would once again be 5th. And, once again, he was beaten in a last lap fight - and again the wimpiest of riders, Dovisioso! In my mind, this no doubt proves that, either he is getting old and losing his motivation or his physic and stamina never fully recovered from his more "recent" bashings (like his shoulder injury)...

Stoner came as no surprise

There is no point in sayign the what ifs and undermining Valentino's podium. He did it and you can't change that and he deserves it wholly :)

I think Simoncelli' move was bonehead and he should have waited .

Go Vale!c :)

Ride through to harsh, but watch the footage, Pedrosa got past him on the straight, and had the inside line into the corner, Simoncelli crazy to think going round the outside would work. Lorenzo's point to Marco now proven

(sorry for the double post)

Stoner came as no surprise: with Honda he seems in full confidence and no making any mistakes. Did you notice that, like in Qatar, he was pretty cool in the first laps, not trying to win the race from the first few laps like he did in the past? That's because he is matured and has full confidence in his Honda.

Lorenzo was AGAIN the winner of the situation. I know that there is such thing as luck but the bad things only happen to his rivals. He could be sixth today and be really under pressure in terms of the championship.

Oh Pedro... you are far too weak. I was hoping this was not gonna happen. You always have that ONE crash each season & ur championship is history!
Beef up man. Go to the gym & lug down those protein shakes will ya.
Sic did not deserve that. He was minding his own business... Similar to Valencia last year, again has the tire oaks to prowe it. Looks like Safety Commission got persuaded over this weekend.
Btw Rossi is on an upward curve whilst Jlo is on a downward spiral. So now only 2 guys 4 the championship-STO & ROS.
Almost forgot, congrats Stoner.
