I'm Dovi fan and not his fan but today he rode a great race, reminded me Dovi in his rookie season - always calm, consistent and pretty fast. Well done for today and I'm sure first podium fiish is around a corner!

I cant understand how Dani Pedrosa retained his ride this season, considering Marquez was always going to be at Repsol in 2013 you'd think HRC would put Stefan Bradl as his team mate, at least Bradl fights back!!

Hmm...Bradl beats Marquez to Moto2 title, signs for satellite Honda team and impresses immensly, so they pick....Marquez. Honda's logic is infallible.

@ JC
Fair point but Lorenzo and Pedrosa both went into factory teams in their debut seasons and both won races in there first season. Who is to say Marquez won't do the same thing. Jorge qualified on pole in his first ever MotoGP race. Marc isn't someone I like but he's a supreme talent. Iannone needs to be in MotoGP too!

Boo-hoo, poor Stoner, he is not even the second best Honda anymore. He is being beaten by a rookie on a private Honda. I wonder how the allegedly most talented racer manages to when such an average joe like JLo beats his Yamaha mates by such a margin in every race...

Probably Honda and Bridgestone deliver the worse they have to make an interesting championship, right?

And to stay on-topic: Great show, Bradl. I never rated him to be such a creditable rider in MotoGP. He is really doing well.
