Intelligent ride by Stoner, may serve well for races to come. Shame for Lorenzo, but at least he wasn't injured.
Makes for interesting next few races, I think it would have been a very tight battle today if not for the accident, I get the impression Stoner would have paced the race in the same fashion, but we can only guess.

I thought Rossi was very professional in his attitude, he could have just parked it, as some others might, but he went back out in respect to the spectators and no doubt sponsors. Cudos where it is due. Hope to see Dovi back on a factory bike next year, I think he deserves one.
Crutchlow to Ducati fraught with danger, if he tries to ride it like Stoner he may get hurt if he adopts win it or bin it approach. Not worth the risk as it is!

Guys, is it possible that the new tires intentionally designed for CRT (slower bike)? With minor luck on Lorenzo?

Look, the Repsols say it sucks, others while on denial previously are now experiencing it.

Dorna really is the game master :)

Game on!

You guys are so busy bickering and defending your idols that you cant see the wood for the trees. Two great riders on equal points at this stage of the championship. Add in a couple of other guys fighting for a factory ride next year and we might just have the best end of season clash for a long time. Forget the politics, enjoy the racing.

Rossi's tyre was probably destroyed after he was passed by CC,NH,HB. Those guys passed him, gapped him then Rossi dropped off the pace for the next 5 laps then went into the pits.

Good rides from the Honda guys.
@NVC..."I thought Rossi was very professional in his attitude, he could have just parked it, as some others might, but he went back out in respect to the spectators and no doubt sponsors. Cudos where it is due."

Nicely put. Not many will agree with you though.
He put himself in a position to, not only finish behind rookies and CRT bikes, but to get lapped. Not many would do that.
Oh well the haters are having a field day, so it's not all bad.
