Donington MotoGP **Spoilers**

Full action this weekend. The GP circus hits Donington Park for the last time as they will go to Silverstone next year.....

Even though Rossi got pole he was struggling with his race pace on the hard tire. Lorenzo missed out on pole and even second spot even though he was very strong on the harder tire. Stoner crashed both during the morning and during QP. Pedrosa was fastest in the morning and took second during QP.

Most likely we will have a wet race tomorrow so the cards will surely be shuffled. Friday practise was wet but a drying track at the end made it hard to judge what was up.

Suzuki has really taken a wrong turn in the last few races and I wouldn´t be surprised if they are out sooner rather than later.

I won´t be going in to any Hayden bashing but I like Kallios position.

Mapfre Aspar announced that they will be running the fifth Ducati in next years Championship an dthat they intend to run two bikes in 2011. No rider is named yet but we all know Jorge Martinez likeas Bautista a great deal but Bautista seems to be vary of the Ducati.

QP
1. Valentino Rossi ITA Fiat Yamaha Team 1min 28.116 sec
2. Dani Pedrosa SPA Repsol Honda Team 1min 28.211 sec
3. Jorge Lorenzo SPA Fiat Yamaha Team 1min 28.402 sec
4. Casey Stoner AUS Ducati Marlboro Team 1min 28.446 sec
5. Andrea Dovizioso ITA Repsol Honda Team 1min 28.778 sec
6. Colin Edwards USA Monster Yamaha Tech 3 1min 28.865 sec
7. Marco Melandri ITA Hayate Racing Team 1min 29.065 sec
8. Toni Elias SPA San Carlo Honda Gresini 1min 29.175 sec
9. James Toseland GBR Monster Yamaha Tech 3 1min 29.270 sec
10. Randy de Puniet FRA LCR Honda MotoGP 1min 29.434 sec
11. Mika Kallio FIN Pramac Racing 1min 29.599 sec
12. Alex de Angelis RSM San Carlo Honda Gresini 1min 29.600 sec
13. Chris Vermeulen AUS Rizla Suzuki MotoGP 1min 30.098 sec
14. Loris Capirossi ITA Rizla Suzuki MotoGP 1min 30.153 sec
15. Nicky Hayden USA Ducati Marlboro Team 1min 30.268 sec

I keep on rooting for Nicky to start getting consistently decent results on the Duc and have always, always had his corner even when everyone was bashing him for winning the title in '06 with so few wins but dammit....I hope he can turn this weekend around

Talmacsi less than a second off six-fingers on his factory Ducati. Guess he is screwed by yet another manufacturer...

not sure whats up, hayden and stoner are both a lap down, running 9 seconds off the pace? maybe they gambled on dry tires instead of wets?
Hayden just passed stoner for 14th

Quite the opposite. Everyone had dry tires except Hayden and Stoner.
Insane race in many ways though.

Interesting tire choice by stoner... he is the only one on WETS to start the race, he is in 13th place now and it's starting to rain....

He took a gamble and it might pay off for him.

It looks like Hayden is on Wet tires as well.... this is going to be a good race if it starts raining now.

Yea I saw after that both factory Ducatis went on wets, but it didn't rain for many laps, so they both got lapped. By lap 24 it rained enough that they were quicker, but it was far too late, and their tires way to destroyed to do anything.

Awesome for Colin, I was so hoping he'd get his first win, but second is great. Rossi crashes but still increases his points lead, crazy.

Man had Colin pulled out that set of balls he found later in the race a bit sooner, he might have had not only his 1st win, but done from way back in the field... but oh well... 2nd still one hell of a ride.

Dovi rode a great race, and hung in there with Rossi till the GOAT made a mistake... good for him. Totally pwnd his team mate too. Good race because he got to the front and stayed there and didn't benefit from riders falling in front of him as is usually in races like this...

I totally enjoyed this one...
