Best one so far !

We all just witnessed the turning point in the Championship ! Pedrosa folded up like a cheap suit and Lorenzo threw down the gauntlet. Crutchlow does Jorge a solid and shows he a company man. Prediction Lorenzo repeats and Dani NEVER wins a premier class Championship.

This must feel great for Rossi, after over 2 and a half years. Great job by Lorenzo, didn't see that coming!! He took a huge risk, but it payed off.

Crutchlow soooo nearly too out Marquez in Turn 1, that looked like a brain fade. Glad they didn't crash.

Wonder what DP is thinking, extended his title lead on JL, but only a couple of points.

If he'd buckled to the pressure and DNFd, that would have been bad; today wasn't good, but it could have been a lot worse.

This win does have an asterisk because of JLo, but VR looked very comfortable all race, I think it'll be closer between the factory Yamaha guys from now on.

Nice post-race interview from Rossi: classy, humble and succinct.

Ha ha. Sure it didn't go quite to the plan for DP, but that's mostly because JL could surprisingly take part, and was surprisingly able to keep a good pace as well. Oh boy, some are quick to write Dani off! Just like at Qatar, when he finished 4th. See what happened after that, and who leads the championship.
