Looks like Crazy Joe is also a lil bit up on top speed vs last year... I still cannot imagine 215 mph down a strait, with wind blasting from any direction, and maintaining composure through the first corner. Nuts!!!

I don't think anyone is more fun to watch than MM93 when he is at the top of his game. I know he's an all or nothing, win or bin type guy. But seeing him fly the way he did today was insane. Let's see if he can keep out of the grass on Sunday(Saturday for most of us).

Lorenzo is the biggest baby in motogp. I really can't believe he can blame someone and stomp his feet and cross his arms because they followed him around the track. Glad to see Ducati on the front row. Hope 29 makes Lorenzo sit up mid corner.

Following/drafting in Qualifying has been going on forever, Doohan used to bitch about Criville following him, do you remember the circus last year when they all followed Miller into the pits?
Part of racing, won't affect the outcome.

Very excited for this one as well..
Hoping that "Maniac Joe" shows up in full on form, gets in to turn one in front of Jorge and holds him up a bit..
Hoping that Rossi gets a great start and some how gets in front of Dani and the others very quickly.
Hoping to see Rossi and Jorge actually battle it out for a full race..
Hoping that it is sunny..
Hoping that the tires last..
Hoping..

Bring it on.. I am ready..
See how the tires last.. And who chooses which tire?

I just hope Marquez's bad luck streak at PI ends. He should've won the race there in both 2013 and 2014...first time got black flagged and last year crashed while being way up front in the lead. The guy's clearly fast as hell at PI...he deserves a win regardless of being out of championship contention. Rossi just needs to finish in front of Whoregay.

WOW! What a race!! Outfuckinstanding! By far the best GP race of the season!

More passes at the front that you see in some Moto 3 races, amazing last lap, and best of all, Iannone destroying a seagull with his helmet over lukey heights! :D

There is a good reason why those guys are the best in the world. All those close passes while on the edge, and nobody really hit each other....amazing skills! That pass from Iannone on Rossi and Marquez at the same time, class act!

Every time Iannone made a pass on someone I thought they were gonna crash lol...but every pass made by all those 4 guys were perfect. Nothing shady going on, nothing for Lorenzo to bitch about.

Though I tend to think that if Marquez, Iannone and Rossi wouldn't have fought among themselves so much at the beginning, they could've all passed Lorenzo. Marquez clearly had the pace to catch him, they should've just stayed behind him and once he got in front they could've tried to pass as well....but it should made for great entertainment.

11 points between the doctor and the whiner...these next 2 races are going to be intense! Unless Lorenzo DNF's at Sepang, it WILL go down to the last race!

I don't think Lorenzo is a whiner by any means, he is a professional racer just like the other guys.
People don't call Doohan a whiner when he used to complain about Criville following him do they?
