To bad for Brett McCormick. It would be nice to see him catch a break.

I very disappointed by the self destruction of Melandri and Sykes engine blow-up. I was hoping for this thing to go down to the last race with some do or die racing, now it looks like Max can cruise and stay out of trouble. Bummer.

Should still be more exiting than most MotoGP races.

If I was their title sponsor, I'd feel pretty ripped off.

I'm sure McCormick does. He got them more tv coverage last race then they had all year, sucks for him to get screwed by what looks to be the most dysfunctional team in racing.

This is going to be a good thing for that kid. He's going to get a lot of attention over the off-season. He's going to get a good ride I'm pretty sure. His performance last race was shocking, not unlike Hopper's dabble in WSB last season. But more so because he is still so raw!

Nobody really knows his potential yet, but he looks like a hell of a lot better prospect than 90% of the 'prospects' on the grid this season. I say this after one accomplished race! He showed his speed every session. It wasn't a fluke. He had a bike and the tools to show it was decent. His tools looked pretty freakin' awesome to me!

I never thought that kid would amount to anything in the sport. Now I want to send money!

Just kiddin' about the money...

Is there any possibility that Max can lose this thing?

A couple of DNF's would do it

Not a fan of the "fake headlights" for 2013.
Looks dumb on a race bike.

Better get used to it.
Thats one of the main themes, these are bikes that you can buy in a showroom near you....
Apart from the suspension, performance work, electronics and tyres.
