Good super job JL I guess he is going to be Stoner this year, and everyone have to fight for Seconds
Good also to see that you have kept up the development so Rossi could come on the podium
Great job all of the Yamaha's except that second Tech3 rider. and specially Cal who fought at the pace of factory bikes on a satellite bike:)
Cheers Claes

Absoulutely perfect ride from Jorge. Took advantage of all of his strengths in long-run pace with no traffic, which he practiced all winter. Kudos to him for focusing on his strength and making the most of it. He faced no challenges, got to pick his own lines and dominated. If and-or when he has to ride in traffic and with someone challenging him, it may be a different story. My perception is that we will see several more races like this form him, as this is his specialty and the remaining races will be attempts to limit his losses when he doesn't have optimal conditions. It may be boring, but it has a good chance of bringing him another championship. Rossi, after he acclimates to the bike again, may give him a run, but I'm guessing that won't happen until later in the season when it won't matter.

Gotta feel for the guy, he's faster than Rossi but he's always second best in the eye of people who know about racing.

There I fixed it for you.

Roberts, Rainey, Lawson, etc. didn't give squat about being liked by the public eye.

Good on JLo for being quick and having a runaway win but Rossi showed the old-timer still has it. Hopefully, he'll make less mistakes and be able to challenge for win next time. Already a much more exciting season compared to the last two.

People complaining Lorenzo took off into the distance and doesn't fight.

Why don't you tell your favorite rider to step up the pace to his level instead?

Well what a start to the season. As a lifetime motogp fan I have been more than a little fed up with the racing for the last few years. It became the norm to enjoy Moto 2 and 3 more than the top level. I had high hopes for last night and it deliverd. I found myself jumping out of my seat, clapping and generally making a fool of myself. Welcome back Motogp. What can we take from last night? My first prediction is all the friendly smiles and backslapping between the top riders will stop. Dani is under real pressure, MM will now have a weight of expectation on his shoulders, JL will know from the laptimes that if Rossi gets a good start he will pose a real threat and VR will be under pressure to improve his qualifying which has never been a real strong point. The Hondas appear to have the edge on top speed and the Yams appear to like the twists and turns. I believe all of us who are real fans of the sport should celibrate the return of real racing. Long Live MOTOGP.

Not a very interesting start to the season, without Casey Stoner the race winner was already decided by the end of lap 1.

Rossi was average considering he is on the best all round bike but Marquez showed he has more than enough should be an interesting next race where he was fastest in practice and no one has any track advantage experience over him.

People loves entertainment..that's why Rossi has m0re fans..his riding is exciting to watch(fighting and comeback from behind)..he kn0ws how to steal the show even when he didn't win..
Maybe JLo should slow down a bit and save his true pace in the last 2laps..if he lose or fall that's the risk..
