I disagree with this, completely. After Friday's reports of the severe bumps on all the lines on the track, I knew that's why Pedrosa was down the charts. There are no settings for a dangerously bumpy racetrack, and judging by what happened to Lorenzo, Spies, and everyone else who fell off, Pedrosa did exactly the right thing. Nobody was going to catch Stoner, bumps or not.
As the guy who can least afford to fall off at speed, I'm impressed as hell that he was competing for the Podium... until it started raining.

Maybe some of us are a little confused about what Moto 2 is trying to represent within the GP circus. Myself and others have obvioiusly seen it as a tightly controlled class so that costs were cut, so things like riders getting preferential treatment doesn't sit so well. And Gustav, you're spot on when you say "it's never equal".

If you think about from the outside, a company supplies an engine to everyone, at the same time it's recruiting for their own future (go)team,, whats wrong with that picture? You don't have to be as paranoid as me to see the ethical problem here. But if you are (as paranoid) you would probably bet the farm that Marc's engines are a bit hotter than everyone elses. Jeez, I wish that these were still the 250 days, then there wouldn't be any doubt. Until I see the next level, I won't be surprised that his legend is a bit bigger than reality. Let's re-visit this after he moves up,, for a bit of gloating and crow eating..
dam those hippy's

Are you sure? I've never heard of it; claiming rule has always been related to Motogp , not Moto2.
I've checked the FIM site, but cannot find the Motogp/Moto2 regulations there.

MOTM - Simoncelli - When you have a point to prove to quiet the nay-sayers and you actually pull it off, that's something special. He was going to win or bin that second place. Honda chose well
But he nearly got outraced by a guy who has consistently beaten him -
and he was far better on the brakes.

You do know Sic is "one of the factory boys" don't you? He has a factory bike the same as the repsol ones.
Even Nick Harris needed reminding of that by Gavin.
