There has almost always been one premier rider in the premier class, now we have 3.

JLo would have attempted a pass if at all possible, he's on the limit and knows a DNF could end his title chances.

If the Honda is so much btter why can't Dani close on Jorge? Both machines have their strengths and weaknesses, this is a track where the Yamaha has looked very strong in the past...I think we're seeing the talent of the riders deciding the order, not the bike their on.

@wake keep please- no one will be switching off, all the same little sooks will be watching next round and then be getting on crash to write about something else that is not to their liking.

There used to be some really educated posters on Crash years ago, a shame that so many have left and the new negative bunch have arrived, all this rot comparing MOTO2, WSBK, BSB etc to MOTOGP, the whole reason they have closer racing in the inferior classes is the majortiy of riders are at a similar peaked abilty, put 99% of them in MOTOGP and they would fail, the gap in ability is huge, that came from Daryl Beattie, not a bad rider in his day, just stop being so negative and enjoy Stoner and Lorenzo in their primes, truly gifted riders!

@ aII Rossi Lovers

Here I suggest U to load the batteries into Your Motogp Remote Controller.Pick your babe of 'cos I like ' .power on and drive the analogue to liking.wanna do YOYO tow?.up to u,men.Cos u surely kwow who's gonna win.but when bit out of control,safely resume.please.there I think you will get patethic satisfaction.
oh...I'm talking to guys over 70 but still ridiculous childish banter to have said like it's been Stoner's ever faults for being too fast instead of the behind to catch up.

I am sick of the pretend fans harping on about the race being boring. Racing is about more than passing. It is about the lap after lap appreciation of the skills and awsome bike control of the top riders. How you can get bored watching the best riders in the world struggling with a 230HP missile is beyond me. Moto2 had plenty of passing, but the catagory is boring. Nothing to really differentiate the bikes. If MotoGP is boring to you then please go watch another sport and leave this one to the real fans.

They call it motorcycle racing for a reason, there's supposed to be racing, an ingredient that seems to be badly missing from MotoGP currently.
But, if all you want to do is watch your hero riding round a track, heyho, whatever floats your boat, but it certainly doesn't mine.
As for your comment on trashy reality shows, I'm leaning that way after today's race(?).
