Despite having an air of inevitability about who would win (even after Marquez botched the start), it was a great race. The first few laps were epic! Another brilliant ride from Marc, and encouraging performance by JLo.

Ride of the day for me was Crazy Joe...

Someone needs to either step up, or level the playing field in terms of machinery...
Marquez is insane but Hondas have a serious advantage considering they passed Lorenzo and left him by half a second in 2 corners.
He's doing everything he can to keep up and he and Rossi deserve more from Yamaha, to make it more entertaining as a sport too.

Another note, whenever Stoner or Lorenzo won consistenly they were labelled robots, Marquez is the ultimate robot in my opinion. It's been the same since Qatar, but getting worse each race and the gaps getting bigger.

However, maybe the real season starts in Jerez? Qatar is as Julian Ryder says, an anomaly, COTA is Marquez land and so it seems Argentina is... Jerez, Lemans, Mugello, Catalunya? Yamaha and Pedrosa fightback? I hope so because it's getting really predictable and extremely boring.

Best rider on the best bike. However, the Yamahas were much closer in pace for this race and perhaps we will see an even closer battle in Spain. Rossi's hard tire front choice served him well in late race pace but both he and Pedrosa ruined their chances for a win and a podium respectively with the opening laps drama. Still, the top four were closer this race than the first two.

No surprise. Mm won easily... I'm a little unhappy about the incident when bradl pushed rossi wide. If not for that he would have got 3rd. He was faster than Lorenzo from that point on. He gained a lot of time on him. After that incident he was about 4 sec back from JL. By the end he was under 2.. Good job Dani P. He showed some heart.

Agree with Truefan - Crazy Joe the rider of the day. The new Simoncelli perhaps ?

Smith another fine job beating his team mate, Redding disappointing again. Bit over hyped unfortunately.
