    To be fair, Hayden has ridden on a Honda as well and well, you know how many times he won on that thing

    His team mate for 2013 has only had one season on it and I cant recall Hayden beating him to often :brow

    The Ducati is a pig, but then old saying about a poor tradesman always blaming his tools ... why he would want to stay on a thing that has no chance of winning is beyond me anyway.

    Not to mention that Dani clearly had the field covered as he moved up. He went by and MM tried to step it up. He made a mistake in what appeared to me to be a frantic counter attack. There is no doubt in my mind that DP should have won that race by several seconds. But it doesn't matter in the end, because he didn't.

    So what was Alex Marquez thinking with 3 laps to go when he looked back exiting the corner and promptly dropped from 1st to 5th? It certainly didn't help his drive out of the corner.

    Damn good race.

    I guess the only 'evidence' that matters are lap times .... and Stoner is of course slow. :brow

    Here is another, so what was Viniales thinking just before the finish line when he almost slammed Jack Miller off the other side of the track?

    Looking forward to the Moto3 freight train at PI.
    Will any of them be brave enough to hold it flat around turn 3? :D

    For a few laps it occurred to me that he was deliberately slowing the pace from the front. Like he was trying to see if he could get Marquez held up in traffic.

    I don't see Moto 3 listed anywhere on Speed/Fox1 anywhere.

    Are they not showing Moto 3 anymore?
    This will be the 3rd race in a row that they haven't showed it.

    Stupid!!!!!!

    Yes to the stupid. The brilliant folks at Fox are showing Moto3 (and sometimes Moto2) on Fox Sports 2. If like me, your cable/satellite provider places FS2 in a different tier or they simply don't carry FS2, you are out of luck.
