"Felt so sorry for Rossi when the bike let go, but only he could fall off in a race and still manage to remount and salvage a 12th position"

Yea, only Rossi can pull off such a feat, oh, except for Bradl, who finished 10th

That was a spectacular race!!

Too bad my Hero went down and managed only twelve, though. I really thought he could fight for the podium and maybe had some extra for the last laps, but alas. Don't know what happened to Lorenzo, who was winner last year in the wet.

Congratulations to Pedro and of course Cal. Not a bad race by Marq.

Thrilling race, I'm a Honda fan but love all the bikes and riders. Not sure where the hatemongers here on Crash are coming from with so many negative comments. Anyway, love the slow motion footage and in that you can see the Yamaha clutch spinning backwards. The Yamaha motor isn't just a flat plane crank, but actually runs backwards. Does't that mean there has to be a gear to change direction and doesn't that mean that gear robs a bit of power?

Fun race! Really a good job by all except Lorenzo...ouch! He is afraid of pushing it when he's not comfortable, not good. At least the crashers were pushing for those lap times (Rossi,Bradyl). This is DP's last chance at a title with MM around. Marquez is already an alien, but he'll be an alien amongst aliens by years end

hmmm yes thats right, thats why Lorenzo won at LeMans last year in the wet by 10 seconds.

Also, both Rossi and Bradl crashed out because they pushed it in the wet. Have you any idea how utterly *****ic your comment is?

Great race. Top class performance from Dani,has to be favorite for the tittle now.He has the benefit of a strong teammate to push him and help development for the season unlike Jorge who has to do it on his own.Great ride from Cal well deserved and Marquez made a great recovery and no doubt learned a lot from this race.

Pedro-Bot initiating title chase sequence, had a good feeling about him for the race win.
Tyre issues for Jorge two races in a row anymore and its either a Yam problem or a Bridgestone problem.
Marquez proving why hes the golden boy.
Best gp race, but after wsbk Monza last weekend cant help but still feel the racing can be more competitive dodgy conditions are the only time its that close.
