Lots of interviews and comments from all the riders. Now in the fun part of the season. Hopefully by the summer break we will have nice tight championship with maybe 3 riders still in with chance to win the title and not a runaway leader where bad luck would be needed to make it interesting.
Dani will be missed, maybe if a the likes of Simo, Rossi, Spies and Dovi could upset Stoner and Lorenzo podium domination then Dani's title shot might not be completely ruined.
Just hope it remains interesting.

Well,if Casey tells you youre fast,you better believe it!
If it stays dry,this could possibly be one of the best races of the year.Just hope there is more action than last week.Casey will be looking for his 3rd top step in a row and will have the bit between his teeth,so Jorge is going to have to be on good form to upset his apple cart.

As we approach the 6th race of the season, 1/3rd distance,I wonder what the engine situation is like.
We know George has already had one do a 'cube' on him.
I for one would be happy with a win for Casey or George.
I will be even happier if Silverstone throws up the first 'last lap battle' of 2011 for the win and nevermind who,just as long as its clean and incident free :)

He is not mentioning Rossi because Rossi is not a championship threat at this point. Even Rossi is talking about the pace of the 'top guys' at the moment, meaning he does not consider himself one of them.

Also, I just re-watched the 2007 Catalunya GP - what an awesome race. Certainly debunks the crash.net myths about Stoner not being able to battle or that the 2007 Duc was a rocketship that he just had to sit on to win.

"It's very disappointing not to have Dani present again this weekend, but this is his decision and I just wish him all the best at this difficult time,"

ya YA .. HE WILL WE THANKING ALL THE GODS FOR PUTTING DANI OUT OF THE CHAMPIONSHIP , COS DANI WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO WAS MORE OR LESS FASTER THAN HIM ..AND THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN REALISTICIALLY CHALLENGE STONER FOR THE TILE.


NOW AS DANI IS OUT ..HE KNOWS HE JUST HAVE TO DO TIME TRIALS IN ALL THE RACES TO WIN, MAY BE THE EASIEST CHAMPIONSHIP WIN, IF HE GETS IT, AND EXTREMLY BORING FOR EVERYONE EXCEPT HIM AND HIS WIFE

Yep, it's hard to imagine Casey being even slightly sincere in his regards for Dani, if your not on a honda you've little chance certainly at the moment with Dani out the way Casey would have to make an almighty mess of things to lose.. The only real question is can he keep it up as the others play catch up??.. and more so when a fit Dani returns..
