I don't wanna hear complaints after the race of not enough time to get the bikes right. This is a terrible situation when so many of the field fail to practice today.
If I was a spectator at the circuit, I'd be demanding my money back for the days ticket.

Karel seems like a nice kid, and im sure that if anyone was given the option to pick any bike on the grid his would be amongst the last of the choices... but wouldn't he be a better fit for moto 2 again. I understand his family has pulled some strings to get him where he is. however there are several other riders looking to move up to gp that have accomplished far more than he has. just seems like a waste of a seat in gp. now having said that I still wish I could be half as fast as him haha

@chooch. Having met they guy I can confirm that you are right, Karel Abraham is a nice guy but I disagree with your analysis of him. He deserves to be in Moto GP as much as anyone. Remember last year when as a rookie he was competing with Cal for rookie of the year and so many people were wetting themselves over Crutchlow? Abaja was taking the challenge right down to the wire on a vastly inferior bike to Cal's. It pains me to say it being a dyed in the wool Ducati customer and fan but they have spectacularly failed to deliver any kind of a machine and indeed gone backwards. I suspect that next year however they will do a lot better. People so unfairly bang on about Karels' Dad and his money, as if it is either his fault or ignoring the fact that 99% of all racers come from backgrounds where there parents sacrifice everything to get them there. Anyway the bottom line is that Mr Abraham Snr's cash has put another rider on the grid, team in the paddock and a platform for a real talent.
