@ daniel Rossi on a better machine where did u get that from.What is his qualifying position 10th with a better machine.Anyways he is catching up with Hayden for almost 13 laps in a row.If Hayden hasnt fell down it would have been a 5 way battle for podium but Haydens fall did slowed things up for Hayden,Cruchlow and Rossi.That made it a 2 way battle.Count man.Hayden closing on Bradl and Rossi and Cruchlow closing on Hayden.Easily 5 way.

Championship looking very interesting now if Honda's new bike is a decent step forward. Lorenzo looking awesome atm but we all know Stoner's talent and it's certainly not beyond him to go on a bit of a run.

Props to Pedro too, has adapted to the new tyres better than Stoner and he's far from out of it.

Of course we all know, that's why he scared to death of Stoner and running away at the front even Pedrosa can't catch him...

if it hadnt been so late in the race i dont think nicky would have been so keen to hold his line and corner speed to stay with dovi. i think hed have lifted earlier for bradl because at the rate he closed them down , clearly had the pace for a podium today..say what you want today but nicky was the only ducati that looked like getting a podium today.. not bad at rossis home track.. gr8 showing from hick today. think now he has a more durable compound available hel be stronger on race distance than hes been able to be of late..

Jorge is very clinical today.Actually he has the better machinery than everybody.But still he is the one who hepled his team to build that machinery.He was flawless.
Pedrosa is nowhere near to Lorenzo but genuinely i think Pedrosa has done everything he could but still cant catch up with the yamaha.
Dovi and Bradl fought it till the end which is most entertaining part of race.Not to forget Hayden's involvement in that too.He rode well but was a bit unlucky but thats okay it happens.
Rossi and Cruchlow were involved in another battle.Rossi fought his way to 5th with some luck.And luck favours the brave and Rossi was going allout today.Cruchlow cannot simply do anything coz on straights he has no pace to match vale and in corners Rossi is not the man whom u could pass so easily even if u have pace and rossi was aggressive today.
Stoner did a mistake by choosing extra hard rear compound and messed up with setup also.But him in 8th will not prove good to champ

@ Mojo

Was that sarcasm? I honestly don't get it, if so. What about saying Lorenzo is "looking good" could be deemed an insult? Or that Stoner could "go on a bit of a run"? The guy won ten races last year, if I remember right.

I honestly don't see the issue but maybe I've misinterpreted you?

I don't understand Stoner fans, when it comes to Rossi all his championships are just stats and in the past, but when Stoner messes up, then its "ooo look he was the top last season". Please clarify what am I missing.

You've got to think that Vale and Hayden are maxing the potential of that Duc. Hayden went strong from the beginning and stayed with the lead group before falling back and finally recovering at the end.
Vale dropped well back but ran a consistent pace that was probably better on the tires.
End of the race they both ended up exactly in the same place and if not for Bradl would have finished next to each other in the standings.
