Im very dissapointed with hayden because he destroyed the tyres in 10 laps the struggling until last lap...My boy alvaro bautista in 6th place a well deserve ride for him...What happened to Valentino rossi? 55 seconds behind stoner was massive gap and a bit lucky because hector crashed in last lap. A well deserve ride from pramac ducati randy de puniet beating the factory bikes and he was absolutely suicide in every corner pushing the bike super hard. Nice ride from colin edwards. Marco and lorenzo struggling aswell. Ben spies was brilliant. Dani was very smart in this race. Casey stoner? oh well im not surprise at all. He was absolutely talented rider and becoming mature-smart rider, he will let others to lead in the 3 to 6 laps the after following them then he will attack then thats it...Brilliant rider and awesome bike...Good luck to everyone in next race. hope to see hayden in top 10

Stoner at the pointy end, makes for a boring spectacle for Motogp... The sport will decrease in popularity if this keeps up...

It is the accepted dogma that Honda is the best machine on the grid and has been the last two seasons... So it's no real surprise that Stoner is leading the series... He is the second best Alien on the best bike...

The Ducati has been a troublesome machine the past three years, it was the hope that Rossi and Burgess could sort it out sooner than later...

It is good for the sport somewhat, that Rossi is struggling for now, because once the Ducati is sorted, it will be all the more sweeter when the championship is wrestled back, just like 2008...

Whatever. If, as expected, Ducati go back to a more conventional frame, it will still (probably) go down in racing history that only Casey Stoner could podium and win on a carbon fibre chasis as well as being the most successful 800cc rider.

Many will suggest, that any coming success for Valentino on the Ducati will be tempered by the bikes revisited conventional design. As such, winning on a Ducati would be expected of any of the great riders on the grid, and not the exception as Casey has shown.

Reading some of the comments in here in particular the ones most voted for I cannot believe that those were posted by matured motorsport fans. Are you quys really that stupid or what?? Cant you read the facts properly? Where is the relevation you seem to be so full of?!! That is such a great embarassment for me to see the flood of inmature comments and ridiculous arguments in here. Only idiots see anything else rather than a quite decent season for a guy on a supreme machine that has no competition. All the others motogp champs unfortunatelly sit on a machinery that cannot compete with the RC213V at the moment. Give that bike to the ones who are better riders and you will see the traditional Casey Stoner ....cracking under pressure, moaning about anybody and anything ....

i didnt "bag" him because he wasnt winning, more because I really didnt like his attitude and comments towards other riders, in particular casey and jorge who posed the greatest threat. Personally I wont support someone who i dont like but it doesnt mean to say i dont recognise their ability, particularly if your talking about 9 world championships.

It would be good for the sport to see rossi back fighting up front, but it certainly wouldnt change my mind about him. The whole deal when Lorenzo joined the team was a little sad, Vale was on the best bike that year, possibly at a high point in his ability and coming off the back of a huge number of race wins and WC's, so why reveal your fears and concerns so blatantly by putting up the wall in the garage, the whole data sharing debacle, his comments towards his new team mate and the "bunch of pussies' remark not so long ago. It came across as childish, primadonna like behaviour from someone who should know better, it wouldnt cu
