MotoGP » Podium slips away, but Iannone 'getting stronger'


That was a great ride by Crazy Joe. He did the only lap in the 2'03s other than Pedro and Marquez, even though he probably chewed out his front tyre in the process. Rossi was pushing hard early but couldn't get to the 2'03s, and also chewed out his front, so he's in very good company. Ionnone has the X factor that could work with Ducati, and I hope they take note of this ride. He put in a couple of very fast laps, maybe went hard a lap too early, but whatever, he backed off and kept it upright for a really good result. You have to be able to put in one or two fast laps before you can string them together. This kid is doing well on a difficult bike.

MotoGP » Podium is 'something special' for Ducati and Dovi


The best part about that result for Dovizioso and Ducati was the pass on Bradl up the inside mid corner with a tighter line. Despite all the other problems the Ducati has, that is something not seen too often in their recent history. Admitedly, it looked like Stefan made a slight error braking too late, but Dovi made the move look surgical. Given where it was, it had nothing to do with outright power, fuel or soft tyres, so whatever tweaks they've made appear to be in the right direction. They still need to improve a lot more before they can really compete though.

MotoGP » Bradl: I've never seen a tyre like this


Well, Bradl was involved in quite a few of the more intense battles with other riders in this race, so maybe that caused him to push harder on the front trying to avoid getting passed. However, his times at the end of the race were closer to Pedro's (on average) than his times were at the start of the race...so maybe he had a setup problem. His ride was pretty good for my money.

MotoGP » Marquez: Quiet race, a little boring for the fans...


Motogp.Freak: Thanks marques for the Boring race,,
It all depends on your perspective. I'd say thanks Marquez for a brilliant display of at-the-limit riding. There was plenty of good racing back through the field, and plenty of good dicing. Rossi made a few moves early, Bradl and Smith had a good crack at each other, and Bradl and Dovi are just a few that come to mind.
