Poor Toby Moody, he wants to try and push the lie so hard you think he actually believes it himself. Lolz.

Man, I hope they clean their britches after commentating, ... didn't you guys hear the 800's are faster than the 1000s and the fact that Lorenzo was only 1/10 behind Marc means Marc is so much better than Casey,

What do these guys smoke before they commentate on MotoGP, jesus.

* okay, so you want to know who is going to win? you don't have to guess to hard, but sooner or later Marc is gonna pawn one off to Lorenzo to keep up appearances, looks like it's the Lorenzo vs Marc round, ...

btw, how many of you guys think Dani's crew stole Marc's qualifying tire allocation for Barcelona when he obliterated the lap record and smoke Marc by over a second and then couldnt keep his tires for a third of the race :)

Cheers blissful fans.

@titfortat
He's 4th in the championship, 1 place behind his teammate. He might be slower than the other factories, but it's not like he's being beaten by the satellites. So is that short of crap? Are you idiot or?

Rossi is not great at qualifying but 1.5 secs down on the front is worrying.. I expected that on the ducati (where Dovi is) but Vale is struggling here. He never like this track and I believe he disliked this more than indy. No excuses for my favorite rider but I am a huge fan of MM as well.. so congrats to him. Strangely as much as I wished him (MM)a great year and want him to win the championship... Someone needs to contain him or we will have a runaway winner...Much respect to Lorenzo for pushing the fight...
My money is on Marc though but would be quite happy if JL won it.

Marc will be ok if JL wins it because he so far back on points and MM would stretch out the championship lead over Dani. If no one can consistently challenge, this plays into MM hands for the championship.

@ samas,

Cal trying to keep up with MM?? He is trying to stay ahead of Rossi but not quite doing it. Do not get me wrong, Much respect for Cal...stellar year but he will have a battle trying to beat Rossi.
That is good for Cal but not necessarily so good for Rossi who I wanted/thought would be battling with the top 3.
I wanted/thought Rossi would win 1-2 more this year but with Mugello crash, Serpang is his next best chance.... Rossi goes well there! Anyway I expect a better year from Rossi in 2014 with more time and development/tailoring of the Yamaha.
Truthfully third or fourth in the championship is good for him as arguably the Hondas are expected to be 1-2. If Lorenzo can squeeze in there he may be second in the championship. The problem for Rossi is the distance (lap time) to Lorenzo.

Don't write Dani off just yet, he was baulked by slower riders twice.
He will be in the hunt for the 3rd step if not higher.
Looking bad for Rossi. Could be fighting with Cal for 4th at best.

Rossi should not be mentioned in the same breath as Cal. He is on one of 4 bikes that have won every race with a straight fight for a long time. Cal is faster than him and pushing hard to try to latch onto the front runners so he can learn how to run faster. Can't fault him for crashing out trying to improve his riding. I have more respect for that than being far behind your teammate.

There is only one WC position that matters, #1. IF any rider is running around thinking they shouldn't push to try to get further up the field they should go home.

Cal and Rossi's problem is they have the biggest hill to climb in that regard. Cal is attacking the hill while Rossi is looking for the map to the top. They both have similar bikes, see the same data and use the same tires. Cal turning a lap faster than a 9x WC when he's not even won a race is shocking to me.
