Wow, what a result, and it's only qualifying so far! I can't believe how well Mr Toseland has done already; I really thought he was going to have pole first time out, on a 2nd string Yam, wow. And the whole front row full of Yams too, but not the one you'd expect. Lorenzo, Toseland, Edwards. Wow. I hope Rossi feels a right plank for switching to Bridgestone, though I admit that tomorrow could bring very different results. Lorenzo had a <1:54 lap though, wow!

Eurosport though, you morons, didn't they notice that although qualifying is in the order 125 -> 800 -> 250, that they're broadcasting 800 -> 250 -> 125? So what was the point of interviewing Danny Webb and Bradley Smith during the 800 broadcast? I know where they finish now ( :clap BTW) so it seems pointless watching the show. Idiots!

Well, just finished watching all three races and I've got one question:

Is it just because there's been a break over Christmas, or was that great racing?

I thought if Toseland could do top-10 then he's done really well, but 6th place, right behind Rossi (who is on a superior bike though you may question his tyres) is awesome. And Dovi? I've long rated the youth and he demonstrated why today. Brilliant performance from him. Great to see loads of proper passing too, not just slipstreaming down the straight. And look, only one Ducati up front again? It must be the bike :lol

In 250s, good racing, but I would say the dullest of the three this time around. Great to see Passini taking it to the established racers though and really making up for his bad luck last year; bad luck that he seems to have passed on to Bradley Smith in 125. Still, excellent performance from Scott Redding in his FIRST ever GP race, and Danny Webb put in a personal best result too. A great day all around for the Brits. Can't wait for Jerez!

It was great racing. Toseland more than fulfilling his promise, can't wait til he gets the new engine and where the hell did Pedroza get the power from with that Honda? Lorenzo was awesome, Stoner equally so and Dovi rode out of his skin, his pass on Rossi on the last lap was sheer class.

Shame about young Bradley in the 125's but Scott Redding showed that he'll be a very real threat.

Recorded it and watched it this morning, excellent racing and really fresh seeing the new riders doing so well while the likes of Hayden and Melandri struggled so much. Toseland was excellent, even without the fact that his bike was down on power, looking forward to seeing what he can come with next time out.

Stoner just looks unbeatable :eek
