Standing ovation for Ben Spies, brilliant ride.. everyone else benefitted from another supersic brain trump, Casey needs to watch out, he's done DP and JL he could be next.. and it is not funny.

Rossi most improved rider on track by some way, though not hard but have made a huge leap in one wet warmup bodes well. Now had just under 2hours on a brand new bike from team who don't know how to build one.... As good as any duke rider past or present could manage against those hondas this weekend.. but a long way to go.

You shouldn't laugh but I just read that it was Simo who vetoed the softer grippier tyres...

Moaner you are you simple as, excuse making in the extreme, Spies won it fair and square and was quicker than you all weekend, you'd think they all ragged it.

Well done ben, you kicked everyones ass today

Simoncelli needs to let at least 2 laps set in. His riding is as agressive as any of the front runners but he seems not to do so well on cold tires.

Spies otoh was laying it down like his tires had 6-7 laps in.

The rear of the GP11.1 looked very much more stable on acceleration than the GP11. The smoother gear changes will have helped too, but it looks to be a big improvement. The disadvantage is having no set up data for the chassis from previous years. The wet 'n' dry practice sessions, reduced in number, (albeit extended), due to the oil spill, won't have helped either, so it was a reasonable first result. If they can sort the front end out next then the bike might finally get back on the podium without needing others to crash ahead.

As for the bloody BBC, showing once again that they think F1 practice is more important than a MotoGP race and then not even managing to show uninterrupted ooverage, it makes me sick....

If you're on pole your ambition cannot outweigh your talent. Maybe the rest should just start 1 second later in order to not see Simo again till after the race finish. He was after all on pole so in theory he could've either pull away and win or pull away and fall on his own landing someone else the win.

It's funny every time some one falls off they would have finished one place in front of Rossi or at least that is the garbage peddled on here.
Only Ben Spies didn't benefit from falls today.

Besides there is a good argument for everyone benefitting greatly from Dani being out. Especially Casey, not that it's his fans saying Rossi is lucky... of course..."cough"
