I'm not goo-goo over Stoner. Others impress me much more. Including Bautista.
I can't work out what Stoner is doing. There are problems there but I cannot determine whether it's Stoner's head or his bike or both. Pedrosa made him look like a twot last night. The Yammie is a better bike now - for sure - but not so much better that it should leave Stoner off the podium.Me either. He is already finished for the year, it will be a Lorenzo/Pedrosa fight now. The current Yamaha is a better bike. Stoner may be the best rider on the planet, but not the best racer.
I agree, looked like he had podium pace to me. He said he locked the front up, had to let off which made him too hot to make the turn I guess. Said the handlebar was bent the rest of the way. I was watching the live timing and it appears he was consistently fastest in sector 1. Not so much in the other sectors.Bummer about Spies, he was back to form finally then for some dang reason got over excited and seemed to attempt a pass prematurely. I thought he rushed it, and I'm not sure why. Regardless, he did come back from the back and get in 10th. If anything, something positive to help for future races.
They came about with the GPS suspension settings many years ago but I believe it's been ruled out.Which leads me to wonder how much strategy is played in the settings. I'm sure they have to make sacrifices in some corners to fine tune others. Which leads me to wonder when they'll have dynamic settings based off track proximity/gps. Which leads me to wonder when they'll just ditch the rider and let the bike ride itself. Which leads me to wonder when they'll have a series that's just carbed 500cc 2-strokes with brakes and throttle?
On this last incident I don't think it was Marquez since I don't think he actually saw he was being overtaken. It was just a racing incident but it was a nasty crash and could have turned out a whole lot worse.What does everyone think about the marquez-espargaro incident?
I personally think he deserved the penalty.

Does he think he's so good that there must not be anyone behind him?
