i too, was impressed with the way Casey presented himself in front of Rainey.
The race definetely took it's toll on them, and they'll be glad they have another week off. Lorenzo and Casey both looked knackered so im glad there's a 2 week break.
NOT a criticism of Rossi, but did anyone else notice in the post race interviews how Lorenzo said 'I could win the second victory in Italy, and for me this is very important' followed with a massive grin from Casey. Which for me, translates into 'Im happy to get another win in Rossi's homeland, and give a good show to his fans!'.
It was a bit dissapointing seeing Casey drop back, but still a 3rd place is a top result(and that's considered a bad weekend). I think if fatigue wasn't a problem he would have taken the win. He set a 1.33.9 very early on in the race and im sure could have betterd it. In Brno he set the fastest lap on the 2nd lap with a full tank of petrol and fresh tyres so it just goes to show he can go that little extra when needed.
As for Hugelean and another one of his daily rants of how the Honda is 30 times better than the Yamaha, at no point did it look to have the stretch on the straights. Looked dead even to me. Get some new material.
Great scrap for 4th also, nice one Simoncelli.
Bring on Aragon.
