MotoGP » Rossi: Like Ron Haslam at the start!

It wasn't age, nor fitness. He just used up his tyres. Frankly, I enjoyed watching the hard fight Rossi put in early. Even when he tried the slightly ambitious pass on Dovi, berming him. It was basically just good, hard, fair racing. By the end of the race, Rossi had left nothing on the table untried. It was right up there with VR's best rides of the year. Not one of his best circuits, and he just went for it. You can't ask for more than that. He will be too old at some point, but he isn't there yet. Marquez, OTOH, goes from strength to strength.

MotoGP » Lorenzo: I left it too late

It was great to see Lorenzo going hard at it again after his start-of-season disasters. He did fall back at the start, and had a hard time getting past Crazy Joe, Dovi and Pedro, but he managed his tyres pretty well. Lorenzo seems to be back in form, and riding with much more confidence in the tyres, whether he's adjusted his technique, or they're setting it up differently, no-one's saying. Of course, according to the conspiracy theorists, the race results are pre-ordained by the Illuminati as part of their global economic control, and we're all just locked into the matrix...

MotoGP » Marquez: So difficult to win them all...

I didn't hear what tyres Marquez had on during the warm up, but I suspect it was a well used set of hards, and he wanted to test his late race pace. My speculation is that after he peeled off 6 consequtive laps in the 1'32s, he knew he just need to keep in touch with the others until his tyres came in, then he could get to the front and run away. If so, his biggest risk was to try to go as hard as the early front-runners, and bin it. However it happened, he timed it well, got through made a break and managed the gap. His consistent winning must be doing their heads in. It will come to an end at some point, but it's hard to say when it will be. Last year he made some silly moves, but he isn't doing any of that this year. He looks the complete package.

MotoGP » Unbeatable Marquez equals Doohan's perfect 10 at Indy

He didn't panic when he was behind, and kept in contact. Rossi and Lorenzo rode really aggressively early on, and Dovi too. Marquez waited for his harder tyres. He looked like he was stalking, waiting for his moment. the first half of that race was the best race of the year... You have to give credit to Marquez though. He is simply without equal at the moment. No-one could say that Rossi and Lorenzo weren't trying. Some good rides down the order too: Redding, Pol, and the PBMs in the points!

et77m: Honda Power!...
So ? Whats your point ? That MM wins with honda power? And pedrosa ? ...
... problem? I'm not one of the deluded who think the bike plays no part and is the reason why I been a fan of Honda since the days of Gardner.
Gardner's Honda was horrible, pulling tank-slappers out of any corner. Why do you think he challenge Steady Eddie with his "You couldn't do it on a Honda" taunt? And props to Eddie, he switched to Honda, and "did it"...
