Well Simo does it again.

What a tard this guy is.

I like Simo cause he's fast and aggressive but he needs to learn what's acceptable and what's not. Clearly in the wrong ( as before ) he's now possibly destroyed Pedrosa's title shot for this year.

Stoner wins as expected, nice.

Excellent job by Lorenzo to gain points, but wow how outclassed the Yam is this year!

Spies is still having major adjustment problems with the Yam but it's easy to see why, it's nowhere near the bike it was last year.

It's sad the bikes aren't more competitive and with these new engine rules, the Yam probably won't get up to speed until it's too late.

Decent race !

On the crash, Edwards summed it up perfectly. Simoncelli was out of order. Dani had the line and was committed, Simo runs it around the outside and lays it on him...what's Dani supposed to do and where's he supposed to go ? Completely avoidable.

The penalty was a joke as there's clearly no consistency. BBC were miles off the mark with the comparison to Stoner vs. Rossi at Jerez. Rossi clearly made a massive error but after making it had no chance of getting out of it. Rossi vs. Lorenzo in Motegi however...where was the ride through for Rossi doing everything but knock JL off ?! All the hallmarks of a Simo witch hunt...

There is precious little "real racing" in Moto Gp as it is at the moment. If they are going to start penalising riders for "having a go", then we will end up with the entertainment on par with Formula One.

I prefer Yamaha YPVS style challenge style racing myself, perhaps I am just getting old!

Just relax and enjoy,this year all the top racers are, for different reasons, on the edge which is good for us with eventful and exciting race week ends.

I feel sorry for Pedrosa. Stoner gave a brillant display of his talent. Rossi,Dovi and Lorenzo made the show.And Simoncelli well unfortunatly the drama ...

As for the conspiracy theory about penalties and Rossi podium,well what do you think of 9/11 bob?

The ride thru was total bs, Simo was racing and great, no contact on his part. Very unjust...would have been on first podium. I really like his style, we will see alot of him for sure...officals screwed him today, but he'll be back.
