good win for dovi even with it being as close as last year against mm, well chuffed for cal lets hope he can keep it up throughout the season..rins seems he could be a threat this year but his sit up and beg riding style cracks me up..rossi 14th to 5th..well it was Sunday nothing else to expect, he likes Sundays when the racing hits the Europe tracks I then think mm is going to start getting 1sts agin, the duke of dovi and petruci looks so slow coming out of the corners..overall though a very enjoyable weekends racing in all classes..

Looks like itís going to be a good year. The pack at the front was very tight and more bikes involved there too. Well done to crutchlow heís been riding so much better the last couple of seasons not the mad head he was at tech and Ducati he seems to stay on the bike a lot more now days
Great win for dovi carbon copy of last years race Shame the newboy stalled his bike at the warm lap. Great things coming from that kid and only 19 wow.
Rossi did well and came close to a podium. And Marquez still mad for a win on the Honda will come in the next race
And I do like jack miller bet his a great laugh when off camera always positive liked him when he was doing a bit on camera last year

All in all a great start Welcome back MotoGP

Big up for Luthi, after that article on his performance in Moto GP saying he had no place in the sport.
What a ride, he needed 1 more lap and baldasari was done.
Very interesting re Gardner's tyres as well, they just died in the last 2 laps

Very successful rider, but like you say, the Ducati dominated, was a revelation at the time compared to the competition

Just looked at a 1299 today and a 959

Zx10r and S1000rr yesterday. Think I might get an Aprilia RSV4 this year, sound sublime, what an engine

Hi Russ

I would have gone Marquez as well until I saw Vinales in qualifying, he looked so smooth, almost a different rider to last year.

Foggy/ducati held the podium record, 100, for 18 years and others were on ducati's at the time so I would argue it was the rider, having met him I would say his level of determination and commitment were higher than anyone else he rode against. The Honda has also had a reputation as an animal to ride which maybe why Danny was bitten by it so many times.

The bikes the biggest part for me and those Hondaís are exceptional, no doubt, If Rossi and MM were on the same bike then that would be the test. Agree though, MM is a great rider, letís see how he fairs against Lorenzo, I expect his talent to shine

As for the bikes, look what Batista has just done in WSB, that V4 Ducati is untouchable on the straights, canít compete, 15 second gap! and Rea riding the tyres off it

Same when Foggy was riding them, different league at the time, his Moto GP career says it all

Disagree, it's the person on the bike that makes the real difference. Stoner proved this winning the title on a machine nobody including Rossi could ride. Let's also not forget Rossi had a machine developed for him that was superior to anything else including the one has team mate rode. Love or loathe MM he is the most talented rider I've seen since I started watching in the early seventies and let's not look back with Rose tints on as Rossi has taken out his share of riders over the years and used his mind games and huge fan base to intimidate rivals.

No, his next work swing starts tomorrow so he only got to watch today's free practices. He knows a few people who have tickets for the actual races and they are questioning whether or not to go due to the weather
Going to be interesting whatever the weather chucks up, it's Moto GP after all..........

Hi Chris

Had a text from a friend who works in Doha and the wind is blowing a lot of sand onto the track, not going to get better tomorrow for the race by all accounts. Looks like it's going to be survival of the fittest. I don't think qualifying will have much bearing on any of the race class results, gonna be a tyre weekend I think

High side, not good at all John

Mainly the rear wheel slipping and then gripping

Mind you though, the introduction of the air bag suits is a big step forward imho. Think its Lorenzo on the Alpinestars site, 150mph high side, air bag goes off and he walks away

So much power those bikes, unreal, donít seem to come off them as much as the 500cc two stokes though, they were mental. I would love a go on one, steady away though

A whole other level now, forget knee sliders, elbow sliders

A great race of many here, in the rain though, mental

in the wet!

I saw Stoner at a Caldwell BSB event and he lead the 125 race by half a lap! I thought, yep, heís gonna be something special

Yep, me and the Mrs love it, though I've got to say the last few years with M so far in front have been a bit dull!
Interesting re the Yam and Rossi, I saw his pre season practice interview the other day and he was less than happy with it and the read up said it was full of problems, similar to M...hope they get it sorted.

"Do you have a bike yourself John, think we may have discussed this in the past?"

No and no

My uncle is Derek Edwards of Lotus fame in f2 maybe f1 I'm not 100% sure

Followed Rossi for years though, the word legend in both carp fishing and almost all other sports is so over used, but in Ross's case it's the only one that should have a hashtag and Yamaha should be sponsoring it

Hi Chris

Agreed,

Kornfeil in moto3 did well as well (we know him) but my favourite rider Zarco seems to be on an alien machine, I think he was 22nd.

Gonna be a great season though if today was anything to go by, lots of mentions of Lorenzo being injured, but nothing on the net to what the injury is though? He's still fast though

Hi All

Anyone interested?

Just watched FP1, wow what a start to the season. Rossi, Lorenzo and Marquez were deffinately trying to put markers down and weren't mucking about.
The doctor comes out on top, if Yamaha have fixed the tyre wear problem this could be a great season
