Mugello MotoGP: Lorenzo eases to victory

Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo extended his championship lead today, dominating at Mugello to win by over five seconds. Lorenzo took advantage of Dani Pedrosa running slightly wide at the first corner to lead from start to finish. Pedrosa finished second, but was unable to keep up with his compatriot. Tech 3 Yamaha rider Andrea Dovizioso claimed his fourth podium finish of the season...

Well deserved win.

Master ride from Lorenzo. I was surprised to see Pedrosa keeping up same lap times as Lorenzo for a while. It was shame about Stoner's race today, because he's the best challenger to Lorenzo for title this year. Great ride from Bradl, and Rossi did a good job to close in ppl in front of him on second stage of race. I'm just sad that race didn't last for 2-3 more laps, because we would be witnessing a great battle for 3rd place.

I'm suprised

At the lack of stoner hating going on here. I thought that move on bau was well out of order, ok it was "a racing incident" but when stoner has been roughed up in the past( usually by Rossi) ala laguna stoner has complained like mad and blasted Rossi for dangerous riding!! Here he is not pushing bau wide or lifting him up but actually driving into his shoulder!!! U stoner fans wonder why people like myself struggle to like the guy...Regardless a master class from Lorenzo who is looking more and more like a champion, Rossi did well considering his starting posn, cal I hoped for more, spies shockingly poor....again! Dovi....looks like he should be on that factory bike!

Maybe Ben could put his foot down once he is given the new deal at his home event hopefully that knocks some of the mounting pressure he has come under. Problem after problem from a cracked seat, front end screwing up at Estroil after getting a good start, water goes into the helmet at Le Mans a crash at Catalunya while challenging for the lead, tyre issue at Silverstone same at Assen same issue at Sachensring and finally today illness and dizziness making him a doibt for the test at Mugello tommorow it is very sad to see a talented rider in this state I really feel for Ben.

It's the Muppet show tonight

Although far from inspirational as the label said. Mindless uneducated banter from Buelli and CCB playing playstation motogp. Yes boys, no throttle, no brake lever, no dynamic weight transference control. Just an ecu and a couple of buttons, job done.


 Jorge brilliant. He never ceases to amaze me with his relentless metronomic genius. Whilst I never doubted his ability to cope with the thousands I did think Casey and Dani's more 'modern' pick it up and drive hard style would suit better. I still feel the pendulum will swing back and Lorenzo will need this buffer, so as far as I'm concerned this remains a game on three way championship. 

Bradl just keeps building - results and bankability. From an upcoming talent perspective Motogp looks very healthy. The top three in. Moto2 all deserve big class time. Let's be rid of the been there's and see these youngsters strut their stuff.

 Rossi remains a past his use by date dinosaur, like his team mate. Come on Corse show some balls and sign talent - Pol is screaming the word.

top class weekend from Lorenzo, he's Mr Consistency so far this season.  i still don't think Dani is being given the credit for being a genuine title challenger this season - he's been on the podium at every race, bar Le Mans (and that was a 4th place), it's only the stellar form of no. 99 that's keeping him off the top of the standings.  a poor weekend all around for Stoner by his standards, not helped by his antics on Friday - and i don't understand the 'roll the dice' approach to rear tyre selection for the race, which smacks of desperation, not a scientific analysis based on two whole days of data gathering.  at least he's had the good grace to apologise to Bautista for that move, although i doubt he's enamoured himself to many more people this weekend.  not that such things bother him too much now in the MotoGP paddock.

as for the rest, Ducati must take some heart from the results over the weekend, although going quick in a straight line does help.  i can't see there being a big jump forward with the bike anytime soon, but if they can keep chipping away, then i can see more results like today's.  Cal still needs to practice his starts - it's clearly making the race more difficult for him slipping back into the pack and then having to fight to get the places back.  and Dovi is making himself difficult to ignore by the factory Yamaha team, despite what the media might be saying about Spies.  i wonder what Yamaha are waiting for regarding the second factory seat?

apart from Lorenzo, my ride of the day goes to Bradl - he's making good progress in an unspectacular way, but is clearly getting to grips with the RCV.  i thought he might struggle after Moto2, but i'm delighted to see him doing well in a team where it sounds like both sides are getting on.  and the circus goes on for no. 11 - to the list of problems of frame, visor, tyres and bogey tracks, we can add mystery air suit inflation and food poisoning.  i suppose out of about 90 GP riders, we could guess who would be the one that would get food poisoning - who also happens to live in Italy!  i have to question the wisdom of going out feeling like he wanted to barf every three laps and feeling dizzy - and dicing with the humiliating propsect of being beaten by a CRT bike for much of the race.  i doubt those five points will make the difference to his MotoGP future.  whether it's assured at Yamaha or otherwise.

Grammar

It's probably just me but as a respectable publication I believe MCN should pay a little more attention to correct grammar. 'Crutchlow moved passed...' is inexcusable. But like I say, maybe it's just me.
