well if the tire fiasco hadnt affected the 2012 HRC bikes then im pretty sure it would be a different name being carved into the trophy. Nonetheless congrats Jorge, consistency wins ya the prize. Stoner---man im gonna miss this guy for sure..as Lorenzo said : the greatest rider i have ever seen . hear hear!

Dovi lost the battle ...

... but won the war to finish as the first non-factory rider in the championship in 4th place (43pts in front of Bautista in 5th). 

An excellent ride from Crutchlow and good to see him get another podium - hope he remembers to thank Dovi for taking valuable points away from Bautista and Bradl.

Stoner did not inherit the lead once Pedrosa crashed. He had already passed him as Pedrosa ran wide at Honda corner and Lorenzo was also going inside him when he decked it.

Well done

To Lorenzo for an amazing season winning the championship on the second best bike.
Yamaha need to up their game over the winter for sure.
Got to feel sorry for Pedrosa though he really did try all he could but these things happen when you push that hard.
Amazing performance from Stoner all weekend and a great win although the parade itself was pretty boring apart from the Dovi/Bautista/Bradl battle.
Interesting to hear Neil Spalding say how Rossi/Burgess have brought the bike to a better level than it was before.
I suppose all you Rossi knockers will disagree with someone that actually knows what he is talking about because you are blinded by hatred and envy.

Buell, if they put absolutely zero new parts into a machine, I would still expect that through learning by experience and via adjustments of existing variables (suspension, electronics etc) and riding styles/requirements, a team would ALWAYS have improved by the end of a season, if not, they probably should try another pastime.

Of course they've improved you dolt! But I'll bet Wosi's solitary shrivelled onion they could have done it for a fraction of what it has cost them and without the negative press they've attracted along the way.

Congratulations to Jorge and his 2nd MotoGP title but I would like to say super well done to Casey to win 6 in a row on your home circuit is a fantastic achievement in itself I for one am gonna miss him not being around in the paddock losing a huge talent like him is hard to take but he is one of my favourites and will always be.

Well if Honda didn't introduce the 2013 rc213v i'm pretty sure Jorge had the title 5 races ago! seems Honda's 2013 prototype performed better on the new tyres than the M1. and Jorge still took the title.

Pedrosa comes apart like a cheap watch,he will never win the title and the sooner HRC put someone on that honda that can the better,whoops forgot he's spanish so comes under the protected species banner.

Bob

Just for your information I am referring to the pillocks that keep saying they have taken the bike backwards.
You know the types I am sure!

frank what planet are you on eh? Pedrosa only had one choice for that race and is exactly what he was doing.
What should he have done? Just sat back and let the other 2 go?
Another biased pillock.
