This pic is not from today. Barbera completely turned away from Rossi when Rossi offered his hand! This pic must be from a previous race....

@devil
Watch it again, Rossi offered his hand as Barbera approached, Barbera looked at Rossi's hand and then suddenly turned away! Rossi through his hand up in disgust as Barbera rode on by! Not sure what you were watching! Maybe the croud!?

Yep, Barbera certainly left a brother hanging. Gee when Rossi's not even getting repect from backmarkers then you know you don't have too many friends on track.

Good ride by Stoner, I might be 100% wrong but I reckon he faked a bit of tyre wear issue and weakness in the final sector to suck Lorenzo into believing he could take him there with a lap or two to go. When Lorenzo saw Stoner up the pace and pull the gap, he realised his "advantage" was all smoke and mirrors and quickly settled for 2nd. He was probably wishing he'd made a move with 5-6 laps to go, rather than wait that bit longer.

Great ride by all four riders.

not a bad race, was enjoyable to watch even though
CH10 had satellite problems and picture kept freezing.

got abit worried there for a few laps, i thought Cal was going to do a Sic and torpedo a few riders. looked like he was getting impatient, but he settled in for a good finish.

Anyone else catch the post race interview where Stoner was "moaning" about how the bike was much better in the race and using the overnight change the mechanics made as the "excuse" for his good performance.

Very sad to see Stoner, "blaming" the bike and the team for the win tonight instead of taking all the credit himself........

Well said..

Too often the media selectively report the critical components of what Stoner has to say. Usually when put in to context, most of what he has to say is correct albeit in fairly direct english.
