Rossi managed to double the gap from last year. He went from 16.431 last year to 33.665 this year.

Yes - in Moto2.

MotoGP was mostly boring, but luckily Stoner wasted his tyres or whatever, means we surprisingly got some excitement at the end.
OK, I admit this was better than your average 800cc race. (But still not effin´ brilliant, like Moto2).

I thought that was a very interesting race.

Personal victories for Lorenzo, Crutchlow, Hayden, and Edwards (who cursed on the live feed in Park Ferme). Honorable mention for Pedrosa.

Great stuff. Too cerebral for some, apparently.

Very good race; as predicted by some of the riders, the new Bridgestones had more of an effect as it wore on.

And that's biggest straight-away on the calendar out of the way.

As a Brit I thought Cal's 4th place was awesome.

I noticed something promising - not a single crash in Moto GP race.

That's always a good sign.

The Honda's did seem to have a different exhaust note, I imagine from the TC.Tough day to be a Spies fan for sure,its nice to see Cal and Nicky performing well though.Moto2 certainly delivered!,as well as Moto3.I hope to see Scott Redding fighting for podiums soon.

With my surround sound, the Honda's TC made them sound like Chewbacca...

Good start to the season IMO. Hoping Ducati can get into the podium spots soon.

I bet Spies was feeling those two practice crashes during the race, probably hard to keep focused if his neck was troubling him.

Great rides by Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Crutchlow. Stoner was blaming his right hand for losing the race, I don't know if he has arm pump or just an excuse. Rossi was disappointing and they must be ready to dust off his M1 and paint it red.

Nicky was only 11 seconds behind the satellite Yamahas.

Different tracks will favor different non-alien bikes, though.

Anyone notice Bautista did the race distance on a soft rear? He nearly nipped Hayden at the end with it, too.

At the end of the day what really matters is the reason for watching motogp. Racing or the race antics.

What a race for Fenati!
I think you need to re-read what I wrote, I never said that they couldn't ride but their personalities are boring as all hell. Yes, they can do things on a bike that I will only dream of being able to do but interview / personality wise I'd rather watch a camel poop in the desert! Lorenzo TRIED to rehash Rossi's celebrations but to me it was just a copy, and a bad one at that, try being original

Now the battle for 4th between Crutchlow & Dovisioso, THAT was EPIC!

Why is Crazy Joe so down on power? Marquez passed him like he was standing still on the straights almost every time. Weird.

Also rocking start to the MotoGP class. Damnit, my dislike of Stoner had me rooting for Pedrosa and Jorge. Who I also dislike, but dislike less than Stoner.

Bummed for Rossi. Also I think the crashes just caught up to Spies, let him heal up he'll be doing good.
