Top stuff MM, we are seeing history in the making. This kid will (bar injury) surpass Rossis stats, hes the real deal not just another pretender.

I cannot see MM finishing off the podium ever (bar injury or crash).

Well done all the rest, especially Cal & Bradle.

To those rubbishing rossi for finishing 6th, get a life,

Firstly, he improved 2 spots from his starting position where the others pretty much finished as they started.

Secondly, after the rubbishing rossi received last race for finishing 7 secs behind the winner, how come no one has rubbished Jlo for finishing so far behind MM?

Grow up kids.

The only dissapointment for me was the lack of excitement this race had compared to the last.

"If Yamaha was smart, they'd give Cal a bike like Lorenzo and Rossi "

Dint seem to help Spies that much lol... anyways his bike is not that far off from theres now, as reported he has the same motor, tranny and chassey for now, different suspension, and software package,but most importently, his techs which from the looks of things has been working quite well for him...

keep it up Cal maybe you'll be on a honda next year - if thats what you want b/c theres no way that a factory Yamaha spot will open up any time soon...

@ Dave

MM certainly is the real deal and he seems to have the potential to reach, surpass or get close to Vale's stats.

But that will require time and him to dominate for many years to come, which is far from obvious...

@ Ich,

Very true, MM will require good luck to stay injury free and a lot can happen between now and then.

There is a buz about him though, hes a 125 & 250 WC with 3rd, 1st and a pole in just his second MotoGP race.

He has that look of "fun", he is having fun and as long as that continues, I dont see any reason he would retire prior to 30+ (again, bar injury).

You do make a valid point however, it still has to be done.

@Dave. That's hilarious. So by your reckoning Rossi did well because he improved on his starting position? He may as well qualify last then. Which he pretty much did anyway. To qualify 8th and finish 6th, whilst getting smoked by a Rookie and satellite bikes is embarrassing.

@46 excuses. . Its a new track.. Rossi obviously did'nt feel he could do it at this NEW TRACK . Why should he injure himself just to prove you or anybody else wrong ,Does'nt mean thing . some people obviously liked it ..Moto3 their was massive gaps. Moto2 New faces at the top .Will see next time out JEREZ A real track not this big massive boring F1 stuff. lets get back to bike racing. In the hills and valleys and overtaking on corners and race fans round the track . Not 215mph straights down to 35mph hairpins. its an accident waiting to happen Sooooooo American...Next race If Rossi not in the top 3 i.ll eat my words .But even you know he will be... ..Thats the 2 boring tracks out the way..The season starts next time out like it used to ...Roll on spain

It turns out, according to interviews on other sites, that Rossi lost part of his brakes, "I had a vibration under braking because I lost one part of a disc, so this didn't help."
To come 6th in that situation is pretty good damage limitation in my opinion.

Just witnessed something special today. Any time someone breaks a 20 year standing record, that's special. Also considering the quality of the riders over the last 20 years, it's amazing.
Wonder how Pedrosa feels?
Next race should be a cracker.
