not doubting his talent but left shaking my head
Yep, he and his team are just plain old cheating in front of our eyes. He´s got a tampered ECU, and his bike makes about 30bhp more than the others, while it weighs about half of what it should. The organisers turn a blind eye, cos he´s Spanish.

And all that.

Next year I think they´ll get him a teleport, so he can cheat his way up the order more conveniently... that´ll be much less stressful than if he had to actually spank ´em all one by one

This friggin guy has now whooped everybody´s *ss in a very similar fashion TWICE in a very short period of time. Wonder what all other Moto2 riders are thinking right now.

Marquez

This young man is a combination of Senna and Simoncelli. I can't understand those who don't think he is going to be a class act in MotoGP. I'll make a prediction that he's going to be MotoGP champion in 2014. I cannot recall a more dominant rider than Marquez in the second tier of MotoGP. This young man is really something else.

Yeah, that kid has MotoGP world champion written all over him in a pretty near future. What a ride, absolutely jaw dropping. And what makes it even more so, is the fact that he just did virtually the same thing a few weeks ago!

Moto2, again, continues to deliver. Great stuff.

Mgp? We always hope, but are always disappointed. Now with 99 on slicks, but no one else, means that at best, we have the two honders racing each other.

1 lap in, Espargaro leads on a CRT bike! Pedro, Hayden and a few others went to change bikes at the end of w-up lap, had to start from pit lane.

Lorenzo highsides out from the lead! Was just trying to go outside of backmarker, and maybe went to the wetter part of the track. Pedrosa now the leader, he sacrificed pole position to change bike, but it seems it paid off.

Crustchlow also crashes out. Spies replacement Nakasuga is now running in 2nd position with 5 laps to go

A very odd crash from Crutchlow... Stoner grabbed the podium, in pitlane his crew wrote on his board "GOING FISHING"

Spies almost won last year @ Valencia, was only beaten by Stoner on the run to the flag.

But with Spies´ luck this year, not a chance in hell, that same bike would have found some way to just disintegrate...!!

One Japanese member of the Yamaha factory team was fully in tears, as Nakasuga came into parc ferme..

What a fucked up race.. Good on Nakasuga, that's surely more than he expected. Maybe he can teach J-Lo somehting about keeping your head cool in conditions like these

Espargaro not only led in the beginning, didn't he also re-take the lead shortly after Dovizioso had overtaken him? Pretty good effort.

I wonder what happened to the ducs, especially Rossi's. He never had any pace the whole weekend, the tests are going to be interesting.

Well, long time since a Japanese rider on a Japanese bike got to the podium... (Aoyama?) Also it shows that no one expected this from him! Congrats to Nakasuga!

Interestingly, about 1 hour before the start, Unibet did have him as the 4th most probable winner after Pedro, Lorenzo & Stoner, although Rossi´s odds were naturally much worse than the front row guys.

Interesting. How do they set those odds - are they changing by people betting on him to win? If so, sounds a bit like wishful thinking by the fans.. I hope he will feel confident on the Yamaha, because by the looks of it now I'm starting to wonder if he has any wins in him still..

Rossi was lapped mid-race. Oh the ignominy.
