How can you say the tires only suit one brand when Yamaha won and 3 Hondas followed?
JLo is showing how bad last years M1 was,now the tables have turned and yamaha has a bike which may be alittle better(still think the Hondas are better coming off a corner)
Today was a turning point for Jorge,He laid waste to Stoner in a dry Race..which is no easy task!

Full marks to JLo, totally deserved win. Ditto for Stoner a totally deserved second place. Lorenzo was best, Stoner was second best. Great effort and races from Bautista and Cal. And Pedrosa once again the worst of the top guys - this season he seems to be losing a bit...

And does anyone still think that Rossi isn't over-the-hill? Does anyone still think that he will fight for victories on an Honda or Yam (factory or not)? He would 2 or 3 years ago, not now...

Great ride by jl. Really exciting jostle with cs. Jorge is the favourite for the championship now but honda will get better. It'll go to valencia methinks.

Cal the rider of the day. Brilliant.

Thats the best of spies this season so far but was still disappointing. He's getting closer though

3 fastest laps of the race were all Yamahas - Lorenzo, Dovi and Spies. Lorenzo is riding beautifully sure but the Yam was the best bike out there as it has been all season, Dovi squandered his opportunity, Spies rode a lacklustre race after the first fw laps and Crutchlow showed what he could have done had he been able to start somewhere near the front.

Amazing performance by Cal. I didn't think he would be this good in motogp. It's not just the bike or tyres.
Thought Bautista would go backwards but it's his best ride of the season. Although by the end of the season his overall performance will not warrant a factory supported Honda ride.
Nicky looked good early on but Ducati are awful. Ditch Rossi & spend the money on the bike.
Didn't see much of the crt bikes. As best as we can expect from Ellison, hope PBM sort that bike out.

I was actually expecting a Yamaha 1-2-3. Unfortunatly this didn't happen. In fact after the crash of Cal it was going to be hard. Cal deserves the factory bike next year. Alien stuff today from him. It seems that Honda lost their momentum, at least I hope so. After having had the fastest bike for many many years (even today) the Yamaha package now is as good as theirs.
Bridgestone tyres are the best!!!

If you think Yamaha will give Spies the axe and replace him with Crutchlow you're dreaming. The American market is just to big and besides that Crutchlow isn't picking up the hardware.
