The sad day for Motogp was when the sheep followed vale46.

The quicker Rossi and you lot do one the better Motogp will be, the good thing is its coming soon :-)

Watch snooker, is on on this weekend.

Is that the same Colin who would not give a quarter in sbk but bend over to be rossis team mate as it paid the mortgage? And who would race troy at monza at the best races in the last 10 years?

Love no5 to bits in sbk but in Motogp, sorry, he was a yes man to the dollars and Rossi, if he had foggys attitude he would have punched 46's lights out on the grid!! Ah politics...

An interview at gp1....stoner said...""I like riding, but on these bikes you risk your ass in every corner. What I enjoy most are the races, and that's where I have my fun. But that's only a small part of the job.

If you risk your ass in every corner then for sure you won't find the race boring.

I'm not the one to ever say a race was boring but this one was a snooze fest. Nothing materialized during the race like I thought it would by the looks of the first couple of laps. Jorge didn't make a strong as a challenge for the win like I thought, Cal didn't bother Dovi as much as I thought, nor did any battles really come about.

The only action was Spies and it was to see how far he could drop down the order. lol. Oh, and watching Stoner slide through the corners over the painted curbs and not highside himself was some action too.

Is there anybody, who would like to see this type of race happen every race-weekend for the rest of the season? Sorry folks! No competition because of big differences in bikes. It is getting nearly as boring as F1 was in the past. Now F1 is far more interesting because there is real competition and the winner is unpredictable. The race we saw just happen might as well have been a training-session. Something should be done in the regulations to bring the competition back to where it belongs: the riders.

dutchpy - big difference in what???? Lorenzo just smoke a fast Pedrosa whose riding the very same machine Stoner is on.

Get a grip mate, Stoner is worth a few tenths or so in a bike and it ain't going to change. The only way Jorge can come back is when Yamaha pull out an engine that would put Honda's bike in tears. Until then, Stoner will just cruise and ride his bike onto victory.

Fantastic riding by the top 3 bikes, absolutely at the edge for the whole race, anyone who thinks the riding was boring clearly does not ride and hence they cannot appreciate these 3 were riding at more than 100%. The real pity is that they're simply too good compared to the rest. The other riders were doing it too safe in comparison, Rossi clearly has not recovered psychologically from his tragic accident with Simoncelli last year because he's riding the Ducati too passively - fingers crossed, he will hopefully recover.
