Thank you Dani for a wonderful result and not giving us another round of bullcrap post race circus antics. Well done to Jorge and Stoner for going out there after injury and finishing the race. Honda certainly pulled a rabbit from a hat today and I really thought he would die off mid race for another top 4 finish. 3 Yamaha's in the top 7 positions, they are certainly a step above the other teams. Toselands arrogance showed through again today in failing to comply with the stewards and flag marshals. Nice result for Nikky as well. Always good to see the former champ up the front, even though I feel it will be a one off, maybe Indy.
