A new era has begun.

Marc will only go from strength to strength.

A lot of people saying how smartly Lorenzo managed the race, but the rookie would not be pulled in by any of the bait.

Marc, in my opinion was the one who should be admired for race management. He had everything to lose, Lorenzo did not. And Marc delivered a mature and composed performance.

JLO showed his aggressive side today, if he takes this side of his next season, it's going to be an interesting season. Some of passes he made was aggressive but also made some impossible moves today.

All of Lorenzo's passes were hard but clean with the exception of the last move he made on Pedrosa which was harsh. I wonder what sort of penalty, if any, he may receive seeing as the season is now over?

Even if Lorenzo had made aggressive moves, what other choice did he have? His team-mate was happy to jog through the race...I do not believe that Rossi could not chase up on Marc...

Lorenzo pretty much managed everything on his own..just that Marc did not bite into it..well deserved title for Marc, just goes to show, no-one should begrudge the riders for settling for the points anymore.

And Jorge did show that he is ready for a battle, its just whether he wants to or not..!

Knowing what he knows now, I wonder if Jorge would still have opted to sit out Germany with his injury?

I'm actually glad he sat out and for good reason...better for the injury he suffered to heal properly than for it develope into something that ultimately put an end to his still flourishing career.

In end sure its disappointing to me as a lorenzo fan that he failed to defend the title, but there is always another day for him to try. If anything I already see him recapturing the title come next year as he would be in much better shape physically.
