Really enjoyed that race. Great ride from Lorenzo. Excellent first lap by him and had pace to pull out whenever he needed it. Good result for Rossi getting his first genuine podium. A bit surprised by Stoner's inability to go with Jorge. Good race. Looking forward to the next one.

Stoners inexperience showed in the last laps. Overcooked his tyres. A true wannabeee goat performance. Rossi was sublime. His experience and race craft was superb.
You only get racing like that with vale up front.
Great race with overtaking.

Fastest lap, won fight for second on a chase, all on a bike which was wobbling on the relative low speeds of a wet track.

Maybe Rossi is not really washed up?

I think it's "just" he doesn't get along with Ducadi, otherwise he's still an outstanding racer. Yep, RACER.

Fabulous ride from Jorge in Difficult conditions, all the yamaha's seemed to be working very well, great ride from Rossi, the Ducati seemed to be working well in the wet.
The honda's were not looking quite so comfortable with Casey working hard for his third place and Danny very lucky to net 4th after both the other yamahas crashed out.
All round a nail biting finish

My respect for Stoner has rocketed. Rossi was fantastic and showed he's still at the top of his game and it was nice to see Casey congratulate him on the slow down. Lorenzo was in a different class and I think will be a worthy champ by the end of the season. It's conditions like this that even things out and it's rider skill that comes to the fore. To all those that slag Rossi off, this shows that you all talk bull!
