it really cant get much more boring, no overtaking/close raceing at the front or anywhare else for that matter. i really hoped that the change to 1000cc might help improve the spectacle, in comparrison to moto2 its rubbish and guy that could bring a bit of life to whole thing is raceing mid field.

I rated it unexciting. The track looked difficult to
race on. It was the usual foregone conclusion who would win. Just watched it to see if Cal would get a Podium and Ellison get some Points for the Team .....Hope they can sort the chatter.

8/10...most the excitement came from the ever closing /drifting apart of stoner /lorenzo.
never could tell what was going to happen till the last 2 laps.
wasn't a race of battles , but surely a race of extreme pace.

5/10...Can honestly say that was the 1st time I've seriously been disappointed watching a MotoGP race.
I admire Casey as a rider and for his obvious talent but I don't want him running away with the title.
We need a competitive Rossi back and soon!
As a Brit, I'm glad we have the exciting Cal Crutchlow to get behind.
Making me miss Super Sic more than ever...however, I still can't wait for Silverstone :)

most exciting part of the race was spies mucking up and passing bradl.. maybe lorenzo could have caught stoner but i think after the gap stopped closing and absoloutly nothing happened and everywhere in the field (apart from spies) the gaps were staying the same to everyone that the race would be boring. moto2 race was 10/10, and moto3, brilliant races.

Motogp is becoming seriously dull at the moment. The CRT's might as well not be there, so that makes it a 12 man race. No point having more on the grid if you only see the extra riders when they set off on the first lap then never to be seen again.

Also having that top CRT in the winners circle just makes it more of a 2 teir championship.

Im all up for cost cutting if its required but every bike on the grid should have the potential to win or else its not a race.

i enjoyed the portuguese moto gp,it was top level racing by three great riders,if anything was boring with this race it was the commentary by parrish and cox (if thats his name).at the first corner lorenzo went from fourth to second,no mention even though he was fighting for the championship lead!.we had the usual mid race drival from parish about rossi being goat,and his opinion again about the leg danglers transfering weight (has anyone ever proven this)it cant be the case with crutchlow because his foot is on the tarmac,which in theory should reduce tyre grip.i was just waiting as lorenzo caught stoner for parish to spoil the race for most watchers by his usual stoners tyres must have gone off or hes got arm pump.i wish these commentators would keep their opinions to themselves and just report on the race adding to the excitment.
