A silver spoon there may be

in his mouth, but boy oh boy Abraham rode a great race today. Really aggressive - a prerequisite for this class - sticking his front wheel in and making gaps for himself. Once more all the other front runners made this race the best display of the day. Moto2 despite its feeble engines has been a resounding success from a racing perspective.

Excellent win

Good to see Abraham not only take the win but put up a great fight all through the race showing he deserves the ride.
Reckon the so called feeble engines have had a big part in making the championship so exciting!

Another great race

I've thoroughly enjoyed Moto 2 this year, and todays race was another blinder. The Championship consistently produced fantastic racing, with 9 different winners from 17 races, and the gloss was only taken off by the terrible tragedy that befell Shoya #48. Iannone was a revelation, as was Scott Redding, and there were so many other amazing performances.

Next year will be another belter, with Bradley, the Espagarot brothers, Mark Marquez and Keenan the Turk joining the party. Should be amazing. Moto 2 overshadowed a boring Moto GP season, and I can't see it being any different in 2011.

Edge of the seat stuff again. Not sure what Elias was thinking on the last lap, Iannone was a bit stiff and made a great recovery to get back second. Not sure about the Elias silver bike and suit thing either, a bit like seeing the motorbike racing version of John Trovolota in Saturday Night Fever.  

After all the pre season criticism and the doubters of the Moto2 single engine provider formula, hats off, it made for great racing all year and I think in the end they had 17 different people on the podium and maybe 11 different winners????? I think that was what was mentioned on TV today, in any case it was a great first year.

Really enjoyable.

That, in my opinion, was a fantastic race, good action, with good passing, and go Abraham.

Yes, as mentoned below, he may be a rich kid, but he can ride, and he showed that today. I don't think he deserved to win, but he definitely deserved a podium, and hats off to him, all do respect. Iannone rode brilliantly, and so did Ellis untill the end, but that's racing.

Scott, flying the flag for the UK, and doing us proud it has to be said, lets hope Bradley can give him a helping hand in doing UK racing proud.

Role on 2011, I'll be watching with the greatest interest, lets hope it gets better and better. I think it will.

Cheers, Chris

Abraham has always had some good speed but he LOVES to crash and makes lots of mistakes and be inconsistent even lap to lap so his results haven't been that great. 

Everyone needs luck with sponsors and a good ride, it just so happens that for him it's his dad.  If he was a 'spoilt brat with an attitude' I'd begrudge him but he is one of the nicest kids I've met in the GP paddocks and I know a few people who he's gone out the way to give time to... 

I really hope he gets on ok next year.
