    Oh wow what about that syncronised riding by the Hondas, Pedrosa and Marquez put on an excellent display of cornering skills, when Marquez slipped past Pedrosa I was hanging on to my seat fantastic coverage loved every minute.:thumb:

    Marquez what a talent and only 20 amazing and a nice personality unlike the robot he replaced. Great race especially by Cal if only he could calm down a bit and stop making stupid mistakes he'd be on the podium. Noticed in the interview after Lorenzo looked absolutely knackered he worked hard for 3rd still fancy him to win it again.

    Marquez is certainly a great new talent and a joy to watch - he'd better start putting sliders on his elbows:Eeek::thumb:

    We were glued to it, watching Marquez is a real treat. But it has to be said, not a whole lot of racing. At the front there was a single overtake ( once sorted out on lap 1 ).

    Any F1 types watching would have been asking what all the hype is.

    Any F1 types would have felt at home. No overtaking and little drama. A masterclass in bike control though, no denying.

    Certainly was after the last race.

    Maybe I can appreciate the F1 people now, the racing was boring but I was looking at a bigger picture of how this might pan out. You may well say that is just wishful thinking for the next race.

    I've not found out what happened to Redding yet. No matter, he's got a 4 point lead.

    YEah - cracking stuff from the Marquez - hes in thye frame to take the championship this season, unless Yamaha can get some more power... I know Rossi is off his game atm but Lorenzo would have been upfront had the Yamaha been capable...

    Shame for Cal - hes working hard as always :thumb:

    I think it's horses for courses. I'm sure some of the European circuits are going to be better suited to the Yams. Cal as always rode the wheels off his bike, Vale a bit disappointing but Marquez is going to take some beating, and not just this year, he's gotn age on his side to dominate for quite a few years to come.
    Scott Redding qualified 0.7 sec faster than anyone else but it's the tyre issue again. They said that they expected the tyres to be on their way out after lap five.:Eek!:
