Looking at the lap analysis... wow Spies was so slow generally running high '58s or low '59s. Something very wrong there, be interesting what Yamaha and Spies say about it. I hope he can bounce back and this doesn't effect his confidence too much, took him ages to get over his slow start last year. As much as I want Cal to beat Spies it's a shame to seem him struggle that much, he seems like a nice bloke and a capable rider normally. We need two factory Yams fighting for a good season.

SwissSludge, please stop. You are embarrassing yourself. Completely manufacturing a scenario that just isn't there. Stop jumping around in your nappie and actually comment on the RACE. He's on the podium for goodness sakes. 18th consecutive podium and you are trying to make it out like he has failed somehow?

You want to know about failing? The guy in my registered name. It is a mixture of sadness and disgust. The way he came around the corner to cross the finish it looked like he was going slow motion. Why? Hayden was faster and had some action with Bautista. Why?!?!?!?!

"I want to know why Cal had glowing brakes and Dovi didn't?"

Dovi did, it's the camera angle that didn't show them at their hottest. The disc dim in less than a second so by the time we get a good look at Dovi's bike his discs have cooled. Sometime about half distance you can see them as bright as Cals.

As a Stoner fan I get p!ssed when problems pop up in the last 5 laps and Stoner starts to go backwards.

As Stoner fan I also get p!ssed when it seems Pedro's only good for taking points off Stoner.

However, I have to commend Lorenzo and Pedro for running a smart race. Neither did anything stupid and they just seemed to be waiting for Stoner to run into problems and took advantage of it when it happened. The two Tech 3 riders did extremely well.

3 week break is too long, take a leaf out of F1's book and go back to back weekends to build momentum, although it does give other teams the chance to recover from the wakeup calls....
