Another off for 58 but this time the conditions were tougher than ever. We don't see JL crash too much these days and Simo seemed to go at near enough the same place. Any mistake in those conditions is going to end in trouble.

What was good to see though was an overtaking move Simo made on Dovi at Village, a few weeks ago he would have carried on and probably taken them both down, yesterday he eased off to try again. The Guy is trying at least!

I'm sure Marco will come good, all the fast riders were throwing the bike down the road in their first year in the top class.

You can slow a fast guy down, you can't speed a slow guy up.

After seeing JLo go down you would have thought that he would have settled in and waited for Dovi to make a mistake or just take 3rd place. He was pushing to hard in the wet.

From what I have seen in his press conferences he is settling down a bit.

Hopefully this will be another lesson for him and he will move forward.

It is only a matter of time before he gets on the box.

Marco want to look back at his crash at least he was at the sharp end when he went down, poor Spies was ging backwards and still crashed.
Marco is the fastest rider out there who is not an alien his time will come and his luck will change.

It's not bad luck, it's just bad riding by Simoncelli most of the time. It sure was bad weather yesterday but maybe he should take it little easier.

He is fast but most crash happy rider I can remember. It is not good situtation to other riders. Just thinking riding at those speeds with guy who can crash any time scares me.
