OH man, I hope Hayden can at the least get another podium and rub it in HRC's face.

I can only imagine what he would have done the last two years with proper backing from Michelin and HRC. thats just BS, I hope Ducati treats him a little better, more as a equal. He was World Champ for christ sakes, can Pedrosa claim that, wheres he at this year?

I think they will treat him better, Ducati is more of a family atmosphere which I think Nicky prefers. Honda, being the evil empire that it is, never was known for that type of atmosphere. Kind of personality that would suite a Pedrosa.

Best of luck to Nicky, a podium would be great indeed.

Yep. Good race. We should be able to talk about it. It has been a day... And "spoiler" is in the thread title.

All hail 8 time world champion Valentino Rossi. I did think that Stoner would repeat at the start of the season.

Val is definitely the man...anyone doubt that he is the best there has ever been at the Gp level.....did stoner actually say he "got tired"...:headshake....how about he slowed down to avoid another embarrasing off track episode....what the heck has happened to Michelin the past couple of years....i bet they loved seeing another all bridgestone podium again..another lap and lorenzo would have passed the hobbit...but you really can't blame dani for switching to the stones mid-season..
