@ The truth ... Stoner is obviosuly FAR better than Rossi, at least, now. Just admit that, for the one who should go to the clinic, it is you. They both are great rider, try to give some respect, you just fan, so just watch them racing and stop talking bullshit. About accomplishment that rossi have achieved and stoner won't get equal that? WHO kNows? You'll never know, we'll never know. Everything is possible, dude.

They, that saying, that was a boring race had never races on a track and in a true competition.

Take a replay and watch at this guys, who are on the limit about 45 minut long. A very small mistake and your loose a position.

For me, it was interesting race, but the guys behind the 3 aliens should close the gap. And than we have a close competition and enterteiment. CS, JLo and DP have any fault for their speed, are they?

The truth is, we need more aliens in MotoGP.

Someone had wroted: no overtaking, not took a risk.

At this level and on season begining this guys are smart. A crash means that you need to winning almost 4 races to close the gap you made over a crash.

Why Rossi take not a risk to be closer as CS on the DUC did in the past? Even on this bike CS could fight in TOP3, maybe not winning but still in front, than have you 4 fighting for a win...

I hope, we don't have a wet races, because the other guys take than a huge risk and can ruin the top guys a chance for WCH (becau

@John7 LOL. Do u know anything about GP bikes? the reason there r lot more overtaking and battles in moto2 is because they have same engine and also less power. they can move the bike around quite a lot. Gp bikes on the other hand have too much power. in fact stoner just hinted that bikes the bikes have around 280bhp. That's why they need more precise lines to do the best lap. in moto2 you can see a lot of riders backing it in. never happens in motogp.
And yeah. it is masterclass to have won on all tracks that he has raced on so far.

Since the start of the 2011 season, the only time MotoGP has been more exciting than Moto2 is when they go to Laguna Seca.

"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"

No-one doubts the skill of the top 3 but if you reckon that race was exciting, you can never have seen an exciting race.
Catalunya 2009, as an example, was. Estoril 2012, not,

how can some people moan about that was a boring race. Yes i have seen better but if you watch the TT races there isnt much overtaking and nobody moans about that. Why cant you just admire these boys, there really is very little between them even down to Rossi after 25 laps or so you wouldnt be able to tie your shoe laces between 1st and 7th

Casey Stoner is making people hate motogp, its a pitty that their favorite riders are not winning and now you starting hating the one who wins in the name of casey stoner! I started wathing Motogp when i was 12 yrs old, i did watch all of Rossi's 9 titles, i can tell u Rossi used to win 5 or 6 seconds ahead and people never said it was boring but they only see Stoner's era of winning as boring, Guru says those who hates should come back 7 years when stoner will be retired because come race weekend he will win and u will express your hate comments on, by the way Rossi won in philip island by more than 8 seconds couple of years ago after he was penalised for passing under yellow flag! Huh those facts and statics u cant find on internet unless u have been watching GP for long or u have season preview of every motogp season like me!

To be honest, i'm not surprised at most of the comments on here today. Fans are feeling dissapointed, cheated and somewhat short changed with what i would call a lame excuse for a race. But don't be toooo surprised will you. Because this is what i've come to expect from the so called " new generation " of riders in the premier class.
What we have at best is 3 instantly forgettable, utterly characterless, shallow and overrated so called "aliens" parading around for 27 laps with not an overtake probable or even expected.
What a sad state of affairs, what a sad day for motogp.

Lorenzo needs to stop shaking hands and tip toeing around stoner if he wants the world title back he needs to get at him up if not keep coming second and be runner up again.

yep another boring race. Although moto2 was fantastic! so was moto3. I dont see the point of an uneven playing field with the CRTs. Those bikes should be allowed a turbo and nitrous oxide system on the bikes. :-p
