What a ride, truly deserved. When Stoner tried to close the gap he responded. Lets hope he's a consistent podium finisher from here on out.
Stoner, smart ride. Tried his best to get to 1st but with Lorenzo being taken out there was no need to take that risk. Also, he pulled a 20 second gap from Dovi in about 17 laps, just excellent.
Dovi, i'd say for sure gifted the podium but he stayed consistent so good on him.
Rossi.. well when you look at the result on paper, 4th is good. When you consider he finished 30.6 seconds behind the leader, not so good. 15 seconds at Lemans, 7 seconds Catalunya, 65 seconds Silverstone (rain), and 30 seconds today in the dry.. seems like he's going backwards. Either the bike they have developed isnt great or he is underperforming.. Yet again he benefits from 2 front runners crashing. Unfortunate for Crutchlow aswell, looked like he could have stayed with him.
Simoncelli, really ? come on now just learn to take it easy till you get some heat in the tyres! that crash was a carbon copy of what happened in Estoril, except then he didn't take someone out. Im sure he'll come good, he just has a lot to learn.
Lorenzo, just thought this was worth pointing out. He closed in 7.5 seconds to Hayden in the last 3 laps, that is some going! Unfortunate for him but im sure he'll bounce back.
