I'm a HUGE Crutchlow fan. Always have been. I'm VERY favourable of Yamaha's. Also, can't normally do with Dani. No passion, backs off when people pass him, and he very hardly smiles (now here it comes!)

But...

Dani to win the Championship! It's gotta be said.

He's now in Lorenzo's head. He completely flumoxed him on that last lap - he was simply brilliant! There was absolutely nothing Jorge could do but to put the power on early and subsequently go wide on the penultimate corner.

Dani just needs to ride smart, and keep his cojones out on show like today and he'll have that elusive world Championship. Officially my mind has been changed. Bravo Dani! You can do it lad!

I've also got to pose a question

Does Ben Sspies' season in MotoGP this year damage his future career?

My thoughts are that a lot of his recent failings have been the Bike. Poorly put together so it evidentally has been falling to pieces.

Has he therefore been falling off (when the bike has been ok) because he's been trying too hard? Low confidence must be a factor.

I just hope that one bad season doesn't make the powers that be at Racing teams re-evaluate how good a rider he actually is. I think a season or 2 in WSBK would be good for him to rebuild confidence, and then maybe come back afresh.

Dont go for Rossi and Pedrosa fans.. Aim a Rossi fan and i can wach very well how Lorenzo is making a excelent job and growup a lot!! I like is riding style and i also agree with you, Honda is more powerfull, Lorenzo on this track only on the point a make is move to Pedrosa was clear the advantage on Yamaha on that point because on the rest of the track Honda can be more tuff to put on the line but is not one Ducati.. Honda was the best package for this race.. Lorenzo did everything was great job but also well done to Pedrosa was a fighter he dont give up or star to get nervous, him terms of riding talent was a master race..

I can not help but laugh to those who keeps saying that the Honda is the best bike out there , don't they know who just made the fastest qualifying time? Aside from Dani's Honda isn't it 3 Yamaha 's that followed. Come on people please , give credit to Dani's ability to win it today.

I have to wonder about the comments made towards Jorge's mental fitness. Clearly Jorge had the better tires in the last few laps, yet he left it the last lap to try and win it. You ask me, Jorge lost the race when he underestimated Dani and didnt pass/gap him with 3 laps to go. Me thinks Jorge's supriority complex will be his undoing this year if Dani is able to twist it and demoralize him through infrequent sand bagging and quality engineering on the part of Honda/Repsol.

Jorge will break if he KNOWS he cannot win. The trick will be to convince him of this through the use of some quality performances and a little bit of sandbagging.

Great to see Dani get his first win (top class) at Brno, a track where Yamaha should have won.

i think there is a difference between the Pedrosa a couple of years back and now -- now he holds nerves

he used to crash too much earlier and buckle under pressure.

great to see such a awesome performance.
hope he wins the championship

Simplllly amazing! Both the riders and the race! Go dani! Go jorge!
Btw, it might sound silly 'cos on one hand, i'd love to see dani win the WC, while on the other, i guess jorge is more likely to win it.
Well, i guess all i can say now is good luck to both of them! I love you guys both!
*sigh* :)
