Pedrosa takes Indy win

Alvaro Bautista put in a commendable ride in the tyre-melting temperatures to rise from 13th on lap one to eighth at the flag. Aleix Espargaro was the only Pramac rider to finish after team-mate Mika Kallio crashed out of ninth with eight laps to go.

The fourth rider not to reach the flag was Spies' Monster Yamaha Tech 3 team-mate Colin Edwards, who made two pits stops before retiring. The Texan seemed to suffer tyre problems.

Hiroshi Aoyama, making his MotoGP return from a fractured vertebra at Silverstone, finished in twelfth, with another recovering rider - Honda LCR's Randy de Puniet - 13th and last.

Is it just me or does anyone else wonder what is going on with the coverage? Half the race must be spent with a birds eye view of the riders butts or the pit crew picking their noses. In previous races this season, when I have been really looking forward to the last lap dash between second to fifth place riders, we have instead been treated to the sight of celebrations in the bloody garage! Todays race also include, mid-race, recorded footage of the start from 26 different angles! All this while the race is still going!
