This was actually a pretty good race. At first it looked like the usual Stoner runaway, but lo and behold...he came in third!

WTF happened to Spies? I hope this isn't going to be yet another disappointing year for him.

It looked like Stoner's tires were going away at the end of the race.

Lorenzo looked great.

"Ben Spies first race of the season proved to be a tough one for the Texan, battling major chatter issues from the start of the race. Although unable to hold a competitive pace Spies kept his cool and hung on to take 11th at the line and five Championship points in the process."

I think Stoner was complaining about chatter as well, which they were blaming on the electronics. What exactly do they mean by "chatter," and how can electronics cause it?

Maybe they were all watching The View before the race.
