In terms of racing fights to the flag I can only remember Brno. That one was decent enough though. Oh and Sachs! But that ended before the flag. Estoril and Qatar were ok but not emotive enough.

Not enough to fulfill the promise that the return to the 1000's would give us more competitive races. Some circumstances like an inconstant weather, the absence of Stoner and the fact that from mid-season Lorenzo could manage to win the championship just by making second places (not that hard when 3 riders were well above the par) didn't help wholehearted battles.

I was expecting more, much more.

Still, my main problem is that next year might not be better. The only hope for that not to happen is everyone keeping their wheels rubberside down, Rossi proving me wrong and return to his former self and Marquez faring as well as many expect. Lorenzo and Pedrosa still are the main favorites but if they have a pace unmatched by any others the season risks to have many boring races...

It would be wise to pass judgement on Rossi's skill after Tuesday. He wasn't going to gain anything by risking a fall today, dude just brought it home, if anything this is a real champ, no ego no nothing.
Wait till Tuesday.
and I'm a Pedrosa fan..just saying

Moto 2 next year is supposed to have a weight limit which includes the bike, rider, leather, etc. MotoGP should do the same thing, it might help even things out a bit.

Great ride by Pedrosa, and Nakasuga on a very challengiung track due to the weather.

Neither Rossi or Stoner wanted to be out there today, Rossi didn't want to spoil his Tuesday test, Stoner didn't want to spoil the rest of his life!

They both started on the "safe" tyre and both pitted at roughly the same time (one lap apart), indeed Rossi was actually in front of Stoner after the stops.

But Stoner knuckled down, got the slicks up to temperature and pushed on for best possible result when he had no need. Rossi plainly couldn't be @rsed and just cruised around till the end of the race, absolute disgrace.

As for him on the Yamaha, ofcourse he'll be fast, todays result also proved how good a bike is it. But giving Rossi the ride is an absolute travesty.

Dani will be roosted by Marquez next season, let alone Jorge and Rossi. Dani will never win Motogp. Momentum what? he has had the golden spoon in his mouth from day one at Repsol. Spooner or later good riddance.

Total anti climax to the season.Was hoping for a dry weather scrap between the top 3.We ended up with a farce of a race.
But hats off to Pedrosa,he rode a decent race and finished on top.Nagasuga gets second by a miracle and Stoner ends his career on the rostrum.
Rossi getting lapped is the unfortunate cherry on the most embarassing cake ever baked.What a two year catastrophe that was.Lorenzo,showed too much impatience for once and paid the price.Terrible end to the season.

Great ride by Pedrosa today. Glad to see everyone walk away from their crashes to some looked quite nasty. I also think Espargaro deserves some praise. Top CRT beating De Puniet who was going to walk the CRT class apparently

@Rich1 Moto GP already has a weight limit
