Good second place for Dani in the end, impressive win for Jorge as he managed to gap the repsol hondas when I thought he'd get passed easily on the straight.
Cal was superb again, a better start would put him much closer to the leaders in the last few laps.

dani and hondas best tracks are in 2nd half of the season so yamaha must build solid lead in first half because it will not be easy 2nds like last year because marc will be there.

is it true that megllo is a track that suits more of a factory yamaha rider...............because lorenzo flew through the track today with such an ease while dani pedrosa struggled ,...............

Good result for Pedro today even though it has to be said he had an element of luck with his team mate crashing out.But you have to take the good breaks when they come.He must have breathed a sigh of relief when he saw that chequered flag!
Job done.

Too many problems? Very soon he will be saying " which way did MM go?" Great result from a certain Scott Reading. Come on Honda MM and SR as team mates. Lock up your daughters.

- Not really, watch the race again and you could see Hormiga's desperation to pass Dani. After passing Dani, Hormiga may have got greedy to reach Lorenzo and the tires were not up to the task.

It is expected that Dani will not win in Mugello, just by looking at the times he did in all Free Practices. It's sheer luck that he made it into pole but that is just for one lap. He knows he could not win but he did his best to keep up, but in the end his tires is gone in the mid race, it's visible that he has front tire problem when he could not keep the line and rear tire problem when he can't exit the corner as fast as lorenzo or Marquez. Marquez is lucky that he stick with Dani from the first lap and able to save his tires but in the end he got too hot and crash. Cal could be second if he was not stuck behind the Ducati in the opening laps cause he has the next best pace after Lorenzo. If Rossi didn't crash, it would have been a Yamaha 1-2-3, that is Lorenzo, Rossi or Cal in 2nd and 3rd.
