Great race! Switching to 1000's... so far so good. Loved seeing that crybaby Stoner dropped to third. Keep up the good work Lorenzo. Come on Spies we need the other factory Yamaha sticking it to Moner too.

Swissjudge likes to turn the heat up on Stoner every time he loses a race.It helps to divert the attention away from the deplorable performance by his hero Rossi who would have left a silver slime trail behind him if he had been going any slower.Totaly lost the will to fight now.He will retire at the end of this season if he has any sense.He will end up being sadly remembered as the champion who failed miserably to tame the red beast!

Stoner would have said chattering being the problem but pedrosa said everything went back to normal so the arm-pump.
stoner why don't you just admit that others rode better, every time you don't win there is some excuse.

brilliant rides by the top three - clear gap to the next best.

lorenzo is just awesome, hopefully stoner and dani can take it up to him this year...

its only early but if lorenzo goes on to win the championship this year will only be so because he's on the best bike???

35.Stop talking out of your ar*e!
Stoner would have won easy if not for the arm pump.He was leading by 2 seconds and there was no issue with the bike!
Have you ever suffered with arm pump?

Not so sure that Yamaha is the bike to have. Yes, M1 might look nimbler in the corners, but top speed of the hondas is just superior. Casey and Dani were also quick in the corners, but Stoner passed Lorenzo on the straight. Bottom line is - its the riders! The way I see it, Yamaha has the better riders, Honda has the better equipment. The opposite of what mr. Nakamoto said before. Just think what would had happened if Cal/Dovi and Bautista/Bradl were on factory bikes. Unfortunately for Yamaha boys, the Emipre will strike back!
