JLo, you are a god!

Ben please give your bike to Cal this minute. Finished only ahead of the CRTs???

Stoner, arm pump problems already? First time all weekend? Really???

Rossi, who are you

Dani, this was your race to lose. Had JLo not prevented that pass it would've been all yours. So much for losing focus.

Lorenzo shows he is similar to Alonso in F1 - never gives up, plus his overtaking near the end was quite perfect

Dani will be very happy to have beaten his more illustrious team mate

Casey was for the most part the fastest out there, but got nailed by arm pump, so in a strange way coming 3rd isn't so bad, as he knows the bike is good enough to win on. The title is still most likely between him and Jorge.

And Cal will be absolutely stoked to beat his team mate, who lets not forget came 3rd in the championship last year, and is clearly no mug. If this year follows the form of this race, Cal will either be retained by Tech3 or get the other very tasty ride going, which would be Bautista's Honda. There's actually a decent chance that one out of Cal and Dovi will get the second seat at the factory Yamaha next year, but I would expect Ben to improve vastly at the next race.

Congratulations to all!

Whats with the CRT boring as hell? if your a racing fan it was interesting.
Great result for Yonny Hernandez, all the flack he has took and kept within eyeshot of Edwards and Depuniet with shorter testing time.

Both factory Ducati's really struggled today. Looks like they are even futher back from last season since they were able to keep up with the tech 3s last year.

Hayden says its the fastest Ducati he's ever ridden but I've seen him do alot better, Rossi's been at sea all weekend so the race was no surprise.

I like most,thought Casey was having rear tyre trouble towards the end there,but it turned out to be arm pump.He has suffered with it for a while on and off.Great win by Jorge all the same.He stayed there and slowly reeled Casey in as the arm pump took hold and he took Dani with him!
Jorge seemed over the moon with this win and why not.Well done to him.
As for Cal,stunning performance from him to not only beat his team mate but also the second factory Yamaha and both Ducatis!
Amazing performance.Man of the match in my opinion.

What an amazing performance and example from the Three Best. Dani showed he can pull it out and that he wants to pull it out. JLo was mentally tough and Casey was complimentary to his two competitors and kept his arm pump in perspective.
Cal and Dovi- I can't wait to see these guys at Jerez.

Great race, thanks

1st of all, Happy for Cal. Well done Lorenzo and Pedrosa. It's an OK lost for Stoner similar to Misano last Year.

Barbera almost beat factory Ducati if not because better experience of Hayden. Still a good job for both Hayden and Barbera.

Amazing CEII on CRT finished over 1 mins from the other CRTs.

Pedrosa was the surprise of the race, but he won't have the consistency of Casey & Jorge over the season. Stoner & Lorenzo were always going to be battling for the
top step. Casey's not going to have it so easy this year and that makes for a better season ahead.
Crutchlow & Dovi also rode a great race.

Rossi is a joke. Crouching down by the bike and not taking interviews on the grid, when you're that far down the field is laughable. He really needs a reality check.
