Hmmmm. 
Is MotoGp turning into Formula One? More wings, more electronics, less excitement?

Qatar is never a good track for excitement. Mix that in with new tyres that have never seen race conditions and new ECU and yeah it was a bit boring. But how about the straight-line speed of the Ducatis. Lorenzo must have thought he missed a gear.  The Suzuki could come into its own on shorter tracks, it needs nitrous on the straights to keep up with the other factory bikes, but Vinales is starting to ride well.

More excitement in the first four laps of Argentina than the whole of the Qatar race!!
Going to be a cracker. Very Happy

Thought I would start work late this morning but it would be worth it to see a Zook on the podium.

So near and yet so far . . .

The maniac caused most of the drama's throughout the race. He needs to be a bit more calculating sometimes. He reminds me of Marco Simoncelli.
If Miller could have stayed on it may have been even more interesting as he was looking like he was headed for a podium finish

That was very entertaining (perhaps a lot less so if you are a Ducati fan). I imagine Iannone got his arse kicked by management.

Gets worse (for the Ducati team); the stewards have penalised Iannone 3 grid places (next start) and 1 point...so effectively, the Ducati team is further penalised when they were the only victims anyway...there will be some very pissed off people.

I am always looking for where young Miller comes in, sadly I am surprised when he has not fallen off. I am starting to look at him the way I look a Cal "Crash" Crutclow in that I think he crashes a hell of a lot.

You would have to wonder if both Cal and Jack can't setup a bike and are just riding through problems all the time. Both of them can definitely ride, but the break a lot of bikes.

Congrats young Jack!!. I admit I could not watch when he got the lead as I fully expected him to fall off so I went channel surfing until the last 2 laps. Loved it.

Last night's race was one of attrition that's for sure. Not even the goat could keep it upright. Great riding by some of the less known riders such as jack, petrucci and Hernandez. Just shows when it's not a horsepower game that these guys are great riders

I didn't channel surf, but I know what you mean. As soon as he took the lead I wanted it over.
Bloody stressful watching TV!
