    Too bad I overslept. Only saw the last four/five laps. It was a welcome spoiler. :-)

  • L2C

    Nice Simoncelli banner, JB. Cool.

  • Gonzo

    First loser was almost 3 seconds back?!!?!?!??!?
    What was Pedrosa doing out there, and was everyone else asleep?

  • JW

    Great turnaround Dani, congrats!

  • JW


    The high: 26 perfection after his airborne last race.

    The low: Hayden after the punch in the gut news of this week, dismounting his flaming Desmo, then symbolically waving his arms goodbye to Ducati.

    Didn’t Jorge touch MM. LOL..

  • smiler

    1. Spanish 2. Spanish 3. Spanish. Dorna will be very happy.

  • Former Racer

    I am glad to see D.Pedrosa get a win. The press along everybody in social media are down on him. What I find funny, all the haters can’t even come close to doing anything in Moto GP. I thought that Mark would be good, I never expected him to be this good. Ducati, What a fall from grace. ART bikes are better.

  • jack

    Rossi, you are an embarrassment. Retire already.

  • Spamtasticus


    Fourth in the highest tier of one of the most dificult and dangerous sports in the world is embarrasing by your standards? Do your accomplishments in life merrit such a perspective or are you just an unimaginative troll?

  • David

    I think I hear a fat lady singing.

    Only reason Pedrosa won is because the Lorenzo/MM battle allowed Pedrosa to get a gap.

    The fat lady may as well keep singing for the next few years.

  • TexusTim

    good close racing even M.M. rode a good clean race ….rossi can ride better at his age than most of the field …Jack thats a very stupid and uninformed comment sorry but you cant run him down here like that without a response.

  • Ross Ewich

    everyone is congratulating Dani. smells more like team orders.

    “Marc, go easy on the guy… you already put him in the weeds. let up for a race. throw the guy a bone. just once. it’ll really help things in the other garage. thanks.”

  • Gabe

    Awesome race. I saw Lorenzo make contact with Marquez a couple of times. Where are the pitchforks?

  • Pembeton

    Yeh exactly Gabe.

    Can’t say I’m not surprised some of the crybabies here aren’t all over Lorenzo in the same way. If you’re gonna overreact one way, please have some consistency and keep it up.

    Lap15 in particular was a little dubious, Lorenzo made pretty aggravated contact with a lent over Marquez after being overtaken, charging through his race line into his back/shoulder. It wasn’ ultra dangerous but certainly blurred the line between assertion and aggression a little bit.

    I’m sure neither of them are upset about it, quite the opposite they had another great battle which made the race but unfortunately it allowed pedrosa to concentrate on gapping.

    Shame that Marquez keeps fluffing the starts, it’s almost charitable to Lorenzo/Pedrosa and the audience but God help everyone else when he learns to hole-shot from pole every race..

  • Jimbo

    Was very pleased to see Dani win a race – i wont detract from his achievement by completly buying into the team orders argument but i conceed something was probably said and that may have made MM back off slightly. Still think Dani would have won well done!

    @Gabe/Pembeton agree totaly. But I am pleased there was contact and that neither rider complained as it just proves that that is what happens in racing.

    @smiler – every week you moan about the riders being spanish. Who cares? are you some closet racist whose wife ran off with a spaniard? This is sport just be please there are three fantastic riders we get to watch every race day and enjoy their race craft. We are not watching the world cup we are watching individuals race. Where they are from doesnt matter, If we got rid of the spanish riders the races would be very boring.

  • Grimey Benson

    @Ross Ewich

    I honestly agree with you on this one.

  • Mtgr

    Last week Marky Marq should get race suspensions, this week Georgy runs into that back of Ped, hits MM and forces him off track and nothing?
    Thank goodness no one listened to the whiners and we had some good racing.

  • @Gonzo: “What was Pedrosa doing out there, and was everyone else asleep?”

    It’s called kicking ass and taking names. Dani really rocked it!

    @Gabe: ” I saw Lorenzo make contact with Marquez a couple of times. Where are the pitchforks?”

    Yeah, no kidding. Lorenzo bashing MM’s back with his boot sure proved the fickle nature of Race Direction. Had MM pulled that on JL, the mob would have thrown the noose over a high branch. I’m all for rules, but I’m not at all for arbitrary rules.

  • JW

    Ya 3 spaniards on the podium, I will watch the sport no matter tho. As an American I always hope Hayden or some American could get on the podium say once every 2 years just to pinch myself.

    As for Lorenzo, is it me or is he the biggest hypocrite rider in MOTOGP. Difference this time is that MM takes the bump and keeps his mouth shut. This will earn him more respect as the years roll on. Lorenzo by his words and deeds is a troubled man and will never be champion again IMO. Human nature often shows that we get most agitated about what we ourselves are guilty of.

  • @JW: “Difference this time is that MM takes the bump and keeps his mouth shut.”

    MM is still a Moto2 rider at heart and that’s how it’s done there. I remember in the parc fermé after Lorenzo’s last win with MM coming in 2nd where Lorenzo asked MM, “Did I touch you?” and MM just laughed it off and said, “It’s all a part of the game.”

    I find the contrast to be intriguing.
