I can't believe it...I was watching it and he had nearly a 2 second lead over Lorenzo that evaporated into nothing 2-3 laps after and he was struggling to keep his team-mate behind him. He would go on to lose that position to Pedrosa. But, I'm not surprised as out of the three, Stoner has always been one to use his tyres more than the others...he really needs to get on top of that as his bike is still capable of beating the Yamahas.

But well done to HDT and Yamaha, they proved that they could transfer their pace in qualifying into the race. But what happened to Spies? Could barely stay in front of Edwards at the end as he was only 2 seconds behind him come the end of the race...so good effort Edwards

The Monster Yamahas looked real good and Dovizioso is a fair chance of getting the factory ride next year...

As for Rossi, well his day is done and may as well come back to Honda as I reckon that Ducati is too 'stiff' for him to get any performance out of it...maybe with Gresini but in a factory bike and not a CRT

Nothing wrong with Stoner's tyres.

I'm back!

Go Lorenzo!!!! Stoner was always going to suffer arm pump he had huge chatter going on all through Qualifying and before that....

Good job Lorenzo showed to be the best rider again and if only that Yamaha had good speed he woulda smashed them!
Good job Cal Crutchlow, great battle with Dovi.
Good job Bradl, and good job Edwards.
What is wrong with Spies, he wasn't very good almost got beaten by a 'CRT' rider in Edwards.

Yamaha/ Lorenzo 1 Honda Stoner 0

It wont take long for Stoner and the boys to sort out the chatter on the Honda, then we will see just who is the best!

Going on qualifying form, I reckon the Yamaha is the pick at the moment and has caught the Honda boys off-guard.


New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

I still think the Honda is the bike to be on still, it's just that Lorenzo rides the Yamaha really well..even though they have a massive disadvantage on overall speed, the Yamaha flows really well through the corner, and under braking it performs well and that's where it makes its time up on the Honda, Once Stoner sorts these issues out he will be on the better package IMO, it's just they need to sort the chatter out first.
