0001 in front does not a podium make, Tech 3 run Yamaha's so why wouldn't engineers be in the garage all the rubbish about Cal riding JLO bike what a load of toss. I feel sorry for you Rossi Fans, i respect what he has done and will we see the like again i do not know, Marquez has the potential and the skill but we will see. But get some perspective he is fastest in warm up well he was fastest in the Free Practice the other day means the square root of nothing!! He is still on the second row and we will see. Massive respect to JLO the pain will be intense i just hope he stays on the bike and doesnt damage himself anymore.......

Rossi earnt the win - made the passes and got the job done. The crowd go wild etc...

Cal - good recovery but his starts and early laps still putting the kibosh on otherwise great rides.

Jorge - monster effort and huge damage limitation, aided by VR, MM & CC taking points off Dani today.

Dani.... could well be rueing this lost opportunity to capitalise. MM good ride and getting more consistent.

I'm still tempted to think that despite how well the Yams are going, that the 2nd half of the season will be Honda's. Marquez must be worrying Dani a lot now too.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing eh Scooter22!? When you are fastest in pre-race warm-up, It usually tells you that whatever you are doing It must be working!

Rossi is definitely struggling with the "quali shoot-out" style that is new this year, But when he tops the timesheets in the warm-up prior to the race, Then that suggest's he has good race pace and would be worrying me if I was Dani, Marq or Cal.

The race proved what I thought was possible, The only caveat to that, was if he could get through without incident. He did and the rest was history. He would of been unlikely for the win had Jorge been fit but that is racing, Even if you factor in Cal, Who blames full tanks for his lack of pace in the early laps (truth is, Cal does not have the pedigree to mix it up in the opening laps)the outcome was how it was because Rossi was the best rider out there today..end of!
