@Codger Mostly agree, but that track is difficult to pass on. The Yamahas had consistenly better lap times all weekend (except for BS coming up to speed). I don't think Rossi can give JLo a one second start. If he does it 10 times, he might win one or two of them. Pedrosa struggled all weekend, but still bagged plenty of points. Rossi screwed up qualifying, but had enough pace to bring home a good result. Once he got past Bradl and Dovi, the arithmetic (lap times and laps remaining) made 2nd fairly predictable.

JLo appeared to have more in reserve. With only five engines, he doesn't want to chew them out any more than he needs to.

The next track could well produce a different outcome. I have to laugh at all the posters who've written Pedrosa off so quickly... Foreboding signs from Marquez. He's going to be a handful when he gets up to speed on these bikes...

No doubt the honda's had a bad weekend and Rossi done well to profit from it but Jorge was out of sight. I think Dani's pace will be closer to Jorge's for most of the season and these two will battle for the championship with flashes of Rossi and Marques here and there.But i think 99 or 26 for the champion.
