If this was one of Yamaha's strongest tracks(?), they should be worried.

JLo-Vale 3-0, at three very different tracks, too, wonder what Rossi is thinking now. "I should ride faster", probably

The problems appear to be tire related due to the temperature. Pedrosa and Marquez don't weigh very much and that seemed to help with front tire life here.

Maybe they should consider renaming that last corner.

Yep, that made me laugh when that happened.

think Herve can find a way to get out from under Smith and get someone worthy on that second bike

I think Rossi and Cal should switch rides.

What a race! Marquez on Rossi and Jorge - kid has huge balls.

Marquez today rode almost exactly like I expected Rossi to ride. Ironic, that the showdown with JLo had to come down to that very same corner, where Rossi once leaned on Gibernau (...well, not AS ironic as that corner's new name !!)

MM's first 3 races: 3rd 1st 2nd, and he now takes the championship lead. Seems like HRC knew very well, who they should put on Stoner's ex-bike. And when the kid REALLY gets familiar with that bike, he'll just disappear.

MM's move on JLo was within the bounds of racing, but just barely.
Put in context with his historical penchant for recklessness, I'm a bit concerned.

Burgess told a journalist friend of mine: "Jorge's the lead rider at Yamaha, and at this moment of time, he's faster than us. At 34, Valentino's towards the end of his career. Jorge has taken getting the balance in the bike to a different level, he's amazingly fast at a very high lean angle."

I'm not sure Rossi is going to be able to match the pace of the top three.

I have been looking forward to the start of this season to see how Rossi goes now that he's back on a competitive bike. I agree, so far, it looks like he isn't going to be a contender for the top 3. It's a long season though...

Marquez is charging into the MotoGP arena on fire!

More amusing was JLo's above normal amount of congratulating Dani on the podium.

As a Pedrosa fan boy I'll be happy to see JLo and MM duke it out all year. For second place.
