Jerez MotoGP: Lorenzo wins wet crash fest

Reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo has won the Jerez MotoGP in wet conditions by 19 seconds ahead of compatriot Dani Pedrosa in a race which only had 12 finishers. Casey Stoner got the holeshot and pulled away on the first lap, with Jorge Lorenzo in second, but neither rider was able to stop Italian Marco Simoncelli taking the lead and opening up...

Definition of irony - People who call Stoner a moaner crying like a bunch of school girls about the nasty words the naughty man said to the GOAT.

Dress it up however you want, but 5th isn't a good result for the greatest of all time. Especially when he was in a position to win the race. They don't give points for how many people you overtake during the race. But if that's what you need to give you hope..

Just like they dont give championships to those who win more races in an era hey....

Also, If Stoner went from 12th to 2nd to 15th then finished in 5th in such bad conditions then it would have been the best result in history i'm sure...

Totally epic

Wow an epic 302 forum posts (not including the deleted ones but we won't talk about that anymore) on what was quite an epic race for more reasons than you can shake a muddy stick at. So time for the strokester to put this one to bed.

1) Edwards must be the unluckiest rider out there as the wiley old fox doesn't see too many podiums nowadays and for his engine to fail on him (after 2 races wtf?) on the last lap is cruel thanks for riding an excellent race

2) Contrary to what the haters say, Rossi is a genuinely nice guy, the first thing on his mind getting into the pits was to apologise to Casey, no PR and the evidence for him using mind games past or present is pretty hollow too.

3) Casey was unlucky, in hindsight he could've breaked harder seeing Rossi's entry speed and watch him slide out infront of him. You see this all the time when a rider knows the overtaker is never going to make the apex even in the wet. But credit to Casey for riding that Ducati so well, Rossi has paid him a big compliment this year. Will deeply miss the excitement of watching Casey spank that Ducati for all its worth

4) Capirossi-Harada.. if you've never seen the move watch it on youtube, it might have been playing on my mind if I was in Rossi's shoes worring about Casey breaking the record for most points/wins in a season (although I think Terol will own that one this year).

5) Lorenzo won but pretty boring really, never has a race winner been less talked about, F1 is actually more interesting.

agostini - interview 2 march 11

"This will be a very tough year for Vale. Injuries aside, he's got to fix the bike, I believe he'll make it coz any bike can be fixed, but it'll take time and the problem is in Motogp there's never time. He won't win the initial races, but later he will. Valentino won't have forgot how to ride a bike over a winter."

Vale blew a podium.

As I saw it, Horgey and Casey were riding a measured race, Vale arguably blew a great chance of a podium, maybe his only chance this season, (unless he gets lucky with more rain) but whatever the outcome it was interesting viewing. The Marshalling could have been better, but Casey has got his bad luck out of the way, others will get theirs. Casey Stoners 800 gp record speaks for itself. If Vale does not improve his qualifying then there will be more drama surrounding no 46. Can not see Ducati coming up with the package to engage Honda or Yamaha this season. Gloat all you will on Caseys bad luck cos it is going to be short lived IMO.
