Lorenzo - awesome; Rossi - awesome; Marquez -world champ in 2014; Crutchlow - just needs to string 22 laps together to give us Brits something to cheer about. Great start to the season. Hope there's many more to come.

I too was on the edge of my couch for those 3 or 4 laps. Was looking forward to the season to begin and was well worth it. Now, waiting to get to Austin with the bike.

Thank god Rossi can still ride, it might actually be an interesting season! I have to say I was with the doubters about his chances but been proved wrong. Still worrying that Lorenzo can clear off into the distance - the top speed of those Hondas is suspect and Crutchlows team seem to have got it wrong yesterday.

awesome start to the championship!!

My son and I got up at 4.30am to watch it and it was well worth it

I was very impressed by Marquez...to take on Rossi and not just sit back and settle for a podium finish for a his first motogp race is incredible

Good to see Rossi is back !!!

you nailed it.....while Rossi and Marquez are the buzz right now, it's Lorenzo that no one is talking about. if he and his bike stay healthy, it's going to be a long season for the others.

Ducati? it ain't the riders....

kudos to those on the podium today

Yeah I'm hoping someone will be able to put some pressure on Jlo's back wheel to see if he can handle the pressure...

I wish Crutchlow would have stayed up there for longer.
