And accolades to the GP feed coverage. The new camera that looks through the corner is super.
You remember that Kalio has already had his try in motogp right?

+1 on the camera work the motogp guys provide. Super slow-mo's, new angles, etc... they do a good job. Seems to be less shots of people/crew in the garage as well.

No complaints here on the outcome or the race, but have to admit I didn't mind seeing Lorenzo off the podium. At Mugello I saw glimpses of the podium-jumping jackass, and I'm kinda glad the comeback is stalled.

I was truly amazed the younger Marquez could stay out front by himself with a 4 second cushion in Moto 3. No one else could break loose of the pack no matter how hard they road. That is very un Moto3 like. Dominating by his lonesome out of the draft??

Was that Antonelli? Brutal and scary impact.

Any word on the nature of Crutchlow's mechanical?

Electrical. Had problems with power coming in all the wrong places like Qatar, then all the dashboard lights started flashing and the bike cut out. Whatever foul spirit inhabited Spies' bike in his second year in the factory Yamaha team, it's moved over a couple of garages and taken a liking to the #35 bike.

Is this because Rossi, Pedrosa and Lorenzo, are upping their game, or is there a chink in the armor of MM?
