Hasn't it been nice this season to have a huge reduction in moaning and whinging from riders? VR doesnt even seem to mind being beaten by MM and he can see him taking over the crown. The fun has come back to MotoGP - thank goodness - and its future is very positive.
The marketing wallahs will be rubbing their hands with glee and with more interest comes more sponsorship money for all and that cannot be a bad thing.

re: "In the race we struggled a little bit on full tanks and it was very easy to make a small mistake and lose the front."

breaking news, when you put that pass on ROSSI (of all people) at the absolutely SKETCHIEST section of track (the corkscrew) it was only lap 3. that means your "tanks" were still full.

nobody "struggling" or worrying about tucking the front attempts an OUTSIDE pass right there on ANY rider (never mind Rossi) that early in a race.

is that the story and you're sticking to it kid...?

@ Shamarone...and to think that when they signed him the Honda bosses told him not to go too fast too soon.

How quick is he going to be when he IS allowed to go fast? :) :)

I like the lad. Sod the bosses, sod the top runners' reputations, and sod not having ridden the tracks before, he just goes for it. Please let him stay safe.

Well said. We are watching the passing of the crown from one generation to the next, and it is being done with style and mutual respect. A memorable time in racing history.

Rossi dont have a crown to pass on. Lorenzo took it off him , try to remember. I see all the Rossi fans are linning up behind the young spaniard because he hadn't the audacity to beat Rossi in his prime on the m1 like Stoner and Lorenzo.

While the pass on Rossi was a killer to be sure, I thought the pass on Bradl was amazing as well. From the front camera view, you could see air under the rear tire as he braked past. That's a level of control, to stand a bike on its nose to that degree, that indicates there's a lot to Marquez. He's certainly got the other champ contenders running themselves to the extreme to stay in touch. This is shaping up to be a great season!

If Lorenzo and Pedrosa weren't at such a disadvantage e.g. broken collarbones Marquez wouldn't have had it so easy..essentially Marquez was "gifted" two easy wins.....

I can gaurantee you this though, when Pedrosa and Lorenzo are at 100% competitive level then Marquez will most definitely have work for his wins

Cris Zarate, the only reason why Marquez have been doing so great in the last 2 races stand from fact that his nearest competition are all uncompetitive due to injuries.

As I have said, if Pedrosa and Lorenzo weren't injured you can bet the last two races(USGP, German gp) would have different outcomes.
