Groundhog. No beavers in the speedway. Insert joke here.

I really hope Yamaha gets their engines together for next year. Spies barely lost pole, while Stoner's best top speed was 8K faster. Even the Suzuki had a faster top speed.

Yeah I'm hoping for a good race too... But I'm thinkin Casey might just run away with it... Something like half a second faster... That's a long way... Top speed don't meen much... The other factory Honda's were down on Stoner too... I guessing the speed trap is just a little into the braking zone...

It's gunna be an early get up for us Aussies come race time... Motogp race starts at 4:00am ! And at 1:15AM ! For the 125's... But well worth it to see "our" Casey bring home the bacon...

Nice job, Bautista and Suzuki. Sucks Spies got a jacked up start. Might have been a better race.

Game over...

Loris has decided to hang up his helmet for good at the end of the season. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motogp/14755422.stm

Col has lost his Tech 3 seat and rides for one of the new teams next year. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motogp/14769419.stm http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2011/E...to+CRT+in+2010

It will certainly be interesting who replaces them both.

For any new Ducati rider, the only question that requires a tick is 'Can you ride a brick convincingly?'

The speculation for Eugene Laverty to get the Tech 3 ride keeps ticking, I know it was revealed he was avoiding talks with Pramac.

any chance Dani can pull off a 2006 on his teammate and blow open the championship doors again?

I hope the little fella stays well away from Casey... But the championship is still up for grabs... Only needs a DNF from Stoner... Lorenzo is so strong, he's gunna push Stoner hard...

Imagine if Pedrosa was in the points hunt too... the races may have been alot more heated... but then again... I guess they're all tryin to win every race aren't they..?

It has been a shame Dani wasn't in the hunt for the title, it would have been a better yardstick to measure Casey Stoner's performances by.

Dovi has just never seemed to put in a World Championship winning performance, never leading the time sheets, never being at the pointy end of races when it mattered. A shame.

Crazylegs just needs a 1000cc under him, I hope that bike gives him the confidence to rag it about a bit and push hard. I'll make my usual Murrayism by saying he is going to be the man to watch at Honda next year.

Aoyama. Does he stay on a Honda from sponsorship money he brings in? He is pretty anonymous on race day to say he is on a 'Factory' bike. I know that there is an overdue need for a Japanese World Champion but he clearly aint it. Time for someone else methinks...

Jorge first to fold...

Hahahaha! Didn't think they had the balls to carry out their threat.

Jorge is the first to say he we will be at the Japanese GP. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motogp/14881323.stm

Expect Casey to confirm his attendance soon!

LOL of course,he needs every race and try to get as many points/podiums he can.He's trying desperately to keep that number plate.LOL Even if it means there could be a slight chance of radiation poisoning.

I see Vale is running an alum chassis at Aragon.

Had to happen, still ran off the track twice in 1st practice!
