And I'm waiting for someone to observe that poetic justice nearly got Pedrosa a couple of laps from the end.

Masterly riding from Lorenzo. Couldn't quite see how he fell after his pirouette at the end, but exhaustion possibly contributing factor.

Did you see how far Marquez's front wheel was tucked?! I mean, c'mon. You can't save that.

Good theory about the mafia hiring Bautista,couldn't have been much closer! I can't imagine the shit storm he'd have endured if he had taken out Vale. I like Alvaro but when the hell is he going to learn to not push so hard in the opening laps? Its as if he has a learning disability.

Smith! OK, not that excited, but good result (and Edwards in the top 10).

Marquez, good to see him willing to have a go, but all those risky maneuvers can't keep turning out OK.

Two races now that were very similar to how it went last year; wonder if Marquez, and not Pedrosa, will take Stoner's position at Assen.

Personally, I could not disagree more about no punishment for what he did @ Mugello (not because he hit Rossi, but just simply because the move was bad).

And it's clear the dumbass learnt nothing from it. He was damn close to collect the same guy again.

"Unfortunately, one time can happen," said Rossi. "But doing the same in the next race, another time with me, is very stupid I think."

Actually, Marquez just about put him on the podium!
Great ride by Lorenzo, good damage control by Pedrosa. Poor Dovi now passed by the second-fastest guy on his old team!
Is everyone still defending his move to Ducati? I sure hope they are paying him well!

After re-watching it, the rear tire was chattering going into the corner and that continued to upset the bike even worse the more he leaned the bike over causing the near crash.

Lorenzo is so smooth it's hard to tell how close he is to the limit, hard to know if he is holding back some for the finish or if he's doing all he can to stay in front.

I've said it before, don't understand how AB has that seat still.

Was hoping for Dani to be able to have a go at JLo at some point but apparently he was really struggling with front end grip. I think it's only a matter of time before MM out brakes himself and takes someone out but he rode a pretty strong race.

May not have been much passing but I thought it was a great race just watching those three running so close.

Great gesture from JLo.

The girl who designed my helmet, Anna Vives, is famous in Spain; she is a symbol that people with Down syndrome are capable of a lot more than some people think. I think it was very original and colourful so I was very proud and happy to have her on the podium to share the win with me. said and estatic Lorenzo.
