possibly the most crafted MotoGP WC I have witnessed and although there is a long long way to go I'm wondering if 46 is thinking of emulating the feat.  More power to him if he does.

Must be the best start to a season for Rossi in how long? Consistent when the young Spaniards are making rare mistakes.

Sir NJ I agree, Valentino could be on his way to number Ten. Good luck to him. I don't agree that 2006 was "possibly the most crafted MotoGP WC". I respect your opinion.

A most impressive job by Cal Crutchlow so far. Ahead of Dani on the factory HRC bike.

Herve Poncheral is the smartest team manager in MotoGp, watch your back Lin Jarvis.

Ducati, why spend so much money on JLo99? Jorge is 13th in the championship. Fifth Ducati! Behind three old Ducs, Gp16s or Gp15s, for fun's sake. Give the second factory Ducati to Petrucci or Scott Redding or A.B.

You know what they say "A race tuners' secret weapon, Put a really fast rider on it". that means the metronome has not yet proven to be Really rapid. how can a so called Alien have trouble going fast for the entire race distance & full 18 races on the Ducati. well he is used to the Yamaha. those two bikes are very different. Lorenzo is fast but in another way.

Excellent season so far. It would be great to get to Andalusia for the next race.

Should JL99 really test GP16 to see how different the feel is? Seems like the GP16's or older are doing better thus far. I understand its not easy to ride Yamaha for almost the last decade and simply switch to the GP17 and go fast....not everyone is CS27 ;). Dont get me wrong, I believe if he can extract hte type of corner speed, that suits his butter smooth style, he can be fast on the GP17, but alas, the GP17 is not a bike built for that type of riding.

VR46...even at age 38, still carrying a chip on his shoulder. Looking forward to seeing him on tracks that he can have better setup, mostly, with the harder carcass Michelin still in the works.

No reservations in saying MV will pull much harder next time and he CAN handle pressure as shown by him numerous times in the past going back to 125cc days.

Looking forward to every round...
