You were obviously watching a different race from me then anon!
Was totally gripped by what Marquez and Pedro were doing.I thought it could go either way,but Marquez held in there.Brilliant stuff.

@99 Crystal Ball
from the times he posted, marquez was faster than pedrosa in every sector. it's not really a surprise that he eventually won it. for pedrosa, if memory serves, since his time in motogp there's only one exciting race to the finish by him: the battle with lorenzo in brno. other than that, typical pedrosa race: lead in front early, only to cave in later. to his credit, he tried to take the lead back here. he was never really a fighter racer though, and it shows.

to sum it up: marquez' victory was exciting by itself, but not the battle. crutchlow was more exciting until he basically stopped at 4th.

Nothing too great, but it's a track some might take to learn longer than others.. I reckon the rest of the season will be a cracker and Vale, Crutchlow will be right in there with the other 3.

I don't know what's important about "marquez breaking freddie's record", but he surely did not break Max Biaggi's record as Max won his first race (against the likes of Mick Doohan).

Well, it was a bit boring to be honest.

Was hoping Pedrosa could hang it on there and try an overtake, but in the end a rather 2011-12ish race..

its a purpose built car track,it was never going to provide good racing for moto gp bikes , it could well have been a lot duller had marquez disappeared from the start.

The venue was below "world-class" all the GA areas were basically dirt rocks and weeds, and most of the path ways were dirt and gravel.

The track Itself was nice, but very dull race, Track is not built for close motorcycle racing. More like a parade.
