Whatever kind of clutch Honda is using something is very very different. When Divo and Simochelli can put out a gap like that on 5th place in the first race. That's more than getting the setup right, Hondas done something to that bike and have passed it all the wY down to the satellite team.

Stoner finally has a real bike, now we will see how crappy the Ducati is. How ironic for Rossi.

My take: JB says the trans in the Honda isn't new science just better materials. So, +1 for Honda engineering.
I liked the raced except for two issues. Randy's fall stopped Nick on the track. That complete stop and start ruined his clutch and he was lucky to finish 9th. Had he a better start I believe he could have passed Rossi in the late stages because he was turning solid laps by the last 1/3rd. The Hondas are making crazy power. You can tell on the straights that the Yamaha's are relying solely on handling not top end.
I give the race a B. Not the greatest, but fun enough to not want to throw the tv out the door.

My worst fears came to fuision whatching the Hondas on the straights. Man they were motoring by everything and not by a small margin.

Stoner just flicked a switch and checked out it didn't take but a few laps impressive, Dani's got a long year ahead of him.

This should shape up to be an interesting year in MotoGP. FWIW, I'm still rooting for the US contingent. Let's go, USA!
