What horrible luck for Valentino! He must be gutted. I know I am! So much promise for this race. Absolutely disastrous. This is a weekend to forget for Ben, factors beyond his control dogged him all weekend. I just can't believe what happened! A waking nightmare. Please STFU with slagging Stoner. It is ridiculous and childish. Only a half-wit would call his his 3rd place finish a gifted podium. I don't think Stoner fans have to hide from anyone because he is going to win the farking championship while riding himself into the history books. It was a crap race for all of the riders. So many of you have no respect and should be ashamed to call yourselves racing fans.
