Brilliant race.... two passes for the lead in the last part of the last lap. Roll on race #2.
(F1 take note)

Puts the myth that you can have too much passing in a race to bed quite neatly.
I find myself literally holding my breath at times, as you say EB, F1 take note!

Exactly, and I can see it live on my TV without paying a fortune (at the moment)

Zarco needs to get away from this soft tyre thing.

It might work occasionally, but the rest are not missing a trick!

I don't know whether you have seen this article Gordon, it is from 2011 (before some Nimrod manages to point it out!), but summarizes the problems with the Ducati, essentially weight distribution with the L-4 engine, packaging and tyres.

Seems to need somebody that can rag it around like Stoner and now Dovi, the smooth style of Rossi and Lorenzo just seem unsuited to overcoming the tyre heating and front end problems.

Agreed as Vali did have his moments as well with the Ducati but it was a disappointing 2 years for him overall

All in all a fantastic opening race and a promising start for Cal Crutchlow. From what I could make out Lorenzo suffered some sort of mechanical/electrical failure, he appeared to fall with no good reason. VR once again shows his class finishing on the podium, poetry in motion and as for that titanic last lap battle between Dovi and Marquez they really are supreme talents. I have been fortunate enough to witness a few top riders racing live and the tv pictures simply do not do them justice, to ride in such close quarters at these speeds is incredible you have to see it to believe it.

Caught the highlights last night. What a race, close action for the lead throughout. The Doctor still has it in him and Dovi, could it be his season after coming so close last season?

What a race !! Although the organisers couldn't organise a **** up in a brewery it had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.
Miller was robbed by the start decision but it was good to see Crutchlow take the win, as for Marquez he should be banned from the next race !

Well said Gordon, great race indeed. The start had the look of a VSCC handicap staggered start!

Not much keeps me awake at 4am these days but this did. What a bizarre race, from the pre race antics, to the debacle that is the World Champion (what does he need to do to get a black flag). Regardless it kept me on the edge of my seat to the flag.

Thank heavens for MotoGP. It single handedly justifies the money I spend on an all motor sports Foxtel package.
