Has anybody ever won a world championship on their rookie season in the big class?? Marquez looks like he actually might give it a go. Still early days, though.

And another thing – COTA was Honda territory. Next up is Jerez, and plenty of other tracks, where Yamaha riders, and particularly Lorenzo, should be more able to hang on with the two Repsol bikes. He wasn´t far off now, considering how hard a weekend it had been for them. Succesful damage limitation for Jorge, I´d say.

But Rossi should now probably ask himself, why he finished ten seconds behind a satellite Yamaha.

After watching the post race interviews I can't seem to see how Spies will stick around for another season. He just sounds / looks done...

He apparently lost part of his brake disc leading to severe vibration.

Oh, I forgot he´s on Ben´s ex-bike, so any technical malfunction, no matter how bizarre, is just business as usual!

Yep, 1978. What most people don't know is that Roberts finished 2nd in the Formula 750 class and 4th in the 250 class that year as well.

People like to slag on our dear departed Aussie, but a Repsol Honda team of Stoner and Marquez would have made for epic racing.

I sat in T15 for every session. At the end of each one Lorenzo did a practice start. Bogged down on every one of them. Definitely had an issue getting going.

Or more likely a pretty dominant team.

Yup. And the only reason why Pedrosa has a job with Repsol is because Stoner quit.

Crutchlow will be offered a factory ride next year. Probably to replace Pedrosa if he doesn't step it up and beat Marquez.

Rossi... why didn't they give him all three podiums this time?

Bradl also needs to step it up. Sounds like they're expecting him to be a little higher up there. Beating Rossi is a step forward, but he needs to beat Crutchlow and challenge Lorenzo on the Honda tracks.
