KR also spoke about a possible return to the paddock once more with a team of his own Ė and was keen to point out that things will not be done in halves: "Weíre working on it. And weíre working on something quite big Ė itís going to happen or itís not going to happen. Itís not going to be almost there. When we come back weíll come back in a big way! And if you donít see me, youíll know we didnít get it done.

And indeed he was pretty set for a good weekend - can't argue with the kid's performance...

It was an impressive race from the kid. Poor start, stalked his teammate, passed him and then watched the leader's rear tire for a few laps. Decided to put it in front, and pretty much handled it from there. Kid's good.

Crowd seemed unusually light yesteday. Not sure how many were there, but it didn't seem very crowded for such a nice day.

Awesome race, got to see it in person! Marquez is hungry out there, you could see it in the way he chased Lorenzo every lap until he passed him.

This bike rocks. It does everything.
