Nice words and review about the race!! Lorenzo did perfect today and its never esay, i hope Pedrosa can keep is consistency thus year, is doing good at least avoiding mistakes on tracks that suit Yamaha.. One Friend here post and he was saying that the best tracks for Honda are still to come and i think is right.. If Pedrosa keeps finishing the tuff races on the podium we will have a very competitive year and maybe this year could really be Pedrosa best chance to Win 1 Champion

Honda has a major problem in their hands. Clearly during the last races Marquez has been quicker than Dani who is letting Lorenzo run his own rhythm and save enough tires to win Yamaha races. As Marquez has the same bike as Pedrosa he can't overtake Pedrosa without putting both HRC riders at risk of crashing. Marquez could had challenged Lorenzo for the victory in the last race and today's race as he clearly had the pace but was held back. Basically Honda has to give team orders if it's not for first place whoever is faster should let the other rider pass and challenge Lorenzo for the win. Pedrosa is hurting Honda and himself because if Marquez had won the last two races Lorenzo wouldn't be so close in the championship. He crashed last time around trying to reduce the gap that thanks to Pedrosa was quite big and today Pedrosa once again hold him to give Lorenzo and Yamaha an easy victory.

He may not have been expecting to win today but the fact is he lead from start to finish.The rest of the grid had no answer for him.Great performance from the current champion.I think he will enjoy his evening meal today!

@ IDylan....Stupid 'one-line racing', pointless format for quallifying, the order after the first couple of bends is the order they finish in, etc. Every race weekend excitement builds and then the race is an anti-climax.

All last year Cal was quicker than Dovi, but couldn't get past him. This year Marc is quicker than Dani but can't get past him. If Cal hadn't crashed would Rossi have got past him, probably not.

MotoGP needs a shake up.

I was expecting Lorenzo to lose the front end seeing he was riding over the limit since lap 1 of the race. He's been more than impressive.

Seems like there's only one Alien right now and those predators can't catch him up.

Pedrosa will bounce back.

This track was made for Lorenzo's style. In the still pictures he looks like he's basically laying down on track. I thought he was going to spill it. Let me down as always.

No other rider can lean at such a limit. The flowing corners played to his advantage.
