    Marquez back at his best, what a race from him. Such a shame for Pedrosa and Dovizioso, going to the Ducati garage when he retired was a  nice move from Dani..
    Btw Crutchlow... just being Crashlow :p
     
    No sympathy for Rossi? :p 

    As for Crutchlow, I'm blaming the bike. He's an awesome rider, his time with Tech 3 he was consistently up there. But since then, with the Ducati and the Honda, he seems to end up on the ground more often than finishing races :( 
    Yeah, that was a weird crash for Rossi.. As for Crutchlow it's definitely the bike, if you exclude Marquez everyone at Honda really suffers wth that front tyre. Just look at Pedrosa so far.

    Without a doubt mate, considering the races are 3x longer, the racing is so much more entertaining. The only problem is it will never become popular with the casual viewer as they just don't want to watch 6 hours of racing. To be honest, neither do I. I usually just watch hour long highlights, I never watch the full 6 hours.
    Lol, I'm one of those people who can watch 6 hours of BTCC coverage or 6 hours of a WEC race and feel like I need more motorsport at the end ;)
    Agreed, the F1 race just goes away so fast.. But that's why we have the 24-hour Le Mans race ;)

    Well lets all calm down shall we.

    I haven't watched the full race but caught some 4 minute long highlights, and I'd say the race was alright, not great, just alright.

    However, still far better than most Formula 1 races these days, wahey!
    The stewards were ridiculous though, D'Ambrosio cut the chicane, overtook 3 cars by doing so and didn't get any penalty at all! (go to 3:30)

    I remember him getting incredibly pumped for the start of a Monaco Grand Prix many years ago, I think it was either 2002 or 2003, but he was going 'Are you ready? ARE YOU READY? HERE WE GO. GOOOOOOOO'. That's why I want him commentating again.

    There must be a video of this somewhere!
