"Lay off Spies already. I mean , wheres Ianonne? And Smith? Oh, they have the "rookie excuse" thats right. Hmmm, I recall Spies getting a pole , and even led a race his rookie year. Do you see Smith or AI doing that this year? Me neither"

Oh give it a rest! Spies is a great bloke but putting down rookies in defense of Spies' MotoGP career is a bit of typical blind USA patriotism.

EVERYONE wants Spies to do well. The world outside of the USA (there is one you know!) wants him to do well. But he isn't. Deal with it!

Come on lets be honest Smith will not cut it at this level .Did you hear julian ryder on eurosport saying Smith did an incredible job in quatar ??? ARRRRRRRGH Really did he .I thought he fell off ? Could,nt beleive my ears. You wait till we get to the real tracks. classic curcuits with character JEREZ. LE-MANS.. ASSEN Normal straights. Not the 10 mile long stuff . CRTs will be on his case... We see people like him come in to MOTOGP and then they go..BSB ringing bells

No real surprises here. Some tracks will inevitably favour a certain bike and it looks like this track suits the Honda. What is good to see is MM and Bradle in the mix. The year is getting better by the minute.
Go Rossi.

this type of circuit a lots of braking zone,and rossi is the master of late braking, don't ever have dream to beat rossi here,marquez fans, cal will hit M.M in just 5 laps, maybe rossi will win this race. we ll see the official qualifing pole sitter. Bring them all, rossi will win it for sure !!!

I'm really upset that Hayden is still on Duc. He would be with the front runners if he was still with HRC. The Duc just cannot compete with the Japanese factory bikes. Heck, they can barely stay ahead of CRT.

The way the Brits are posting on here about giving Smith time to learn (as opposed to how Marquez is riding) I won't be surprised if he turns up on the grid with learner plates on his bike.

MotoGP should be about the best riders on the best bikes. I would love to see one of the Esparago brothers, Redding or even de Puniet on the Tech 3 to see how they would go.

not even qualifing yet... and allready you got MM winning the race... did you even see Qatar??? not counting who lead the race (JL) pole to finish...

the Hondas ran 2 n 3 2/3rds of the race, and Rossi dominated them to take 2nd, you wait n see, he'll do it again, his race craft will prevail.... none of this means anything just wait and see.
