I agree - it's going to be an interesting event, and not just for the opening laps, given that there are differing fuel strategies to play out.

2 The Honda is the fastest all round bike.
3 Rossi knows he has to find more speed.
4 Rossi knows the Yamaha has to find more time to take out of the overall bike package.

And I'll also take this opportunity to say again out loud, Dani will never wear the crown he so badly wants to wear some day.

Just watched the race - it was savage!

A great ride from Rossi to stick with the Honda and Marquez, reckon Vale needs to chuck away a few more bits off that Yamaha and make it lighter!

Awesome race from start to finish. I hope de Puniet gets a Suzuki seat next season.

I'd be very happy if he can show the same form in other races early in the season.
