Great ride by Cal!

Rossi was very disappointing but he was the only rider on the hard tyre.. .why? If everyone else was on the soft why did he go for the hard?. We all know this is his worst track on the calander so he'll be back to being top Ducati at Assen and trying to beat the two satellite Honda's!

Not unless Stoner's bike has front wheel drive. It's only the front tyre that's changed.

As others have pointed out, if the Yamaha is really so much better than the Honda, why wasn't it a factory Yamaha 1-2? Last year, when Stoner was beating Lorenzo, Lorenzo was usually well ahead of Pedrosa so many said that it was only Stoner's talent that won the championship and the Honda wasn't that good. Well Honda finished 2nd 3rd and 4th today, in front of the other factory Yamaha, so how does that make the Yamaha best bike?

From the looks of it Lorenzo will be running away with this championship. Which only proves even further Stoners inability to repeat as champion, and don't want to hear that crap about chatter or the front tyre beign an issue. If the bike has chatter he developed that into the bike, after all he is the current champion and lead rider for the team which means they take into consideration what ever he says as far as bike development. And please don't say that honda is not listening to just like Ducati did, he won on the Ducati because someone else developed the bike prior to he's arrival same as when he got to Honda the bike was already developed main reason why he won the championship.

Spies the "cold as ice" attitude is getting old when you're not producing results. Time to get pissed off and fight for your job or you might as well join your bicycle team!

Right... all those that are saying Hayden is destroying Rossi this year just look a the last three races! Rossi hammered Hayden good and proper!

I know you people hate the guy I don't have a problem with that but don't make up stupid excuses, Rossi's problem today was, I quote Matthew Birt MCN journalist "Rossi is the only rider on the harder option Bridgestone tyre" so that explains his dismal performance today, bad tyre choice means bad race!

I don't think Rossi and Ducati will ever gel and I buy the looks of it there won't be a factory Honda or Yamaha next year. Hayden showed potential today on that Ducati so I think by Assen Rossi will be ahead of Hayden again, he doesn't GEL with Silverstone!

Spies was the 2nd Yamaha....and you can make excuse's that Cal was hurt and Dovi Crashed but thats there own problems(Stay on the Bike),Ben deffinatly wore his tires out in the first half of the race but still finished as the Second Yamaha..We will see how the Yamahas finish at the next Race.

The Ducati looks like a bucking bronco on the Track,Rossi's not willing to ride over his ability and risk crashing,I'd say both Vale and Duc will both want to part ways..Mabey a young up and comer from Moto2 would be better to build your bike around instead of trying to make it something its not(Jap Bike)

cal and jlo are my picks.
as for the yams and repsol honda's , i think its not so much the yams are so good rather than its the repsols that have too many problems.
the repsols engine brake destroys the tires and this problem cannot be ridden around , it badly needs to be fixed.
the chatter also must hurry up and be fixed , even though the chatter can be ridden around it still causes mishaps in the riders rhythm.
just watching you can see the repsol bikes bending and bouncing all over the place causing too much wasted energy and concentration burn.
the yams look like smooth as silk.
