What Yamaha or Ducati do now or did in the off season has nothing to do with Honda's success. In a time when Yamaha is trying to deal with economic troubles (may be the reason Vale is gone) and Ducati revamped their entire racing program (to get Rossi) Honda made a better bike. They are untouchable just like when the V5 was introduced. The tech from Indy and F1 was applied to GP and it is probably more of an advantage in the wet were smooth matters most. Stoner probably would have won Jerez too if he was able to be on 2 wheels during the whole race. Rossi would be pushing as hard as Jorge is and crashing or throwing in the towel after chasing the Honda's too. I think JLo is doing an amazing job of trying to keep the Honda's honest. The poor guy must ahve been gutted to be pushing so hard while leading Danni earlier in the year and seeing Danni decide to go by and drop him on a whim... We need Yamaha to catch up so we can find out how good the Honda really is, I don't think that'

Hmm. Stoner, good job, expected.
Dovi.. good job, not expected, well done.
Edwards. wow!

Nicky Hayden. Very good ride. And fast lap! Sorry you are being ignored here as you did a great job...

The race though I hated. I hate it when the riders fall like that. I cannot see how anyone would wish that on even someone you do not like.. been there, it hurts.
Glad JL seems ok, hope BenS is ok, hope marco is ok and hope he gets a podium soon.

Hey You users, What is this stupid childish talk about Colin or Rossi would be lower if there were no crashes? Stupid, I bet you never said that about Jerez ? Lorenzo won in Jerez because he STAYED on his bike, not the ones who did not. Today, is not last year, (silverstone will never be yamaha land). Hohe crashed. fact! No one took him out,fact! Simo crashed! No one took him out! Spies, well, do we need to talk about this too? Those who had good starts and stayed on their bikes, they got points, so stop yapping like small kids. you cross the finish line to get points, OR YOU CRASH AND DIE!!!!!
Another thing, Yamaha has had one win in six races, bull**** with being consistent!! Their greatest bet would have been keeping Rossi and letting the Yamahas fight it out in the front, just like motegi 2010 and almost the whole 2009. But........Lorenzo has two win chances this year, brno and indianapolis, then again Casey and Pedrosa and Dovi also have, right?

I'm sure that VR and JB have told Ducati what's needed to win races with that bike, but the one single component that they need - they 'binned' that double digit race number....27. It seems HRC must have picked it up out of the bin and stuck it on their bike. Wonder why?

Great wet race. Crash dramas and rare scene of back marker lapped by Stoner. Hayden set the fastest lap and lapped 2.22s most of the time. Even Stoner lap dropped to 2.24s. Colin did a great job holding his position and maintain the 5 seconds gap from Hayden.

Rossi and his fan can't put any blame to Ducati anymore when Hayden was running faster than race winner pace most of the time. Without those bad start, Hayden may fight Stoner for the race win. Anything to blame is on Rossi.

Lorenzo, Spies and Simoncelli is running out of luck under the wet race. Dovi doing a great job keeping his good results in British GP. A good job too from Bautista on Suzuki.
