So Stoner runs away from this start to finish. In general, not an\nexciting race, with the attractions being...\n\n- Elias trashing what seems to be a surprisingly crappy Honda, or\nmaybe it just shows Elias just can not set up a bike right without\nteammate input?\n\n- Lorenzo nearly pushing Pedrosa out on the straight, or Pedrosa being\nnaive thinking everybody is going to allow him to use his natural top\nspeed advantage in critical race situations...\n\n- Rossi getting lucky when trying to pass Spies on the outside...\n\n- Barbera being unable to sustain what looked like early promise - did\nhe luck out with the qualifying tire? Did he forget to set up the bike\nfor the harder compound?\n\nAnyhow, this race to me proves that Pedrosa all these years was unable\nto guide Honda's might in the right direction. It has to be\nembarrassing to not only lose to your new teammate, but then get\nrelegated to third knowing you have the best bike around, and one that\nwas actually originally designed for you. It's do or get lost time for\nPedrosa, the excuses are long long done with. Get Spies on the HRC\nteam next year, dammit.
