No one post here yet?

Anyway, Rossi's won the race and is gunning for the record of most points in a year...

And yes - Bridgestone has been confirmed as the sole tire supplier from 2009 onwards.

Nothing seems to be going good for Michelin in motorsports...

That was 9th win of the season. I think this is the third time he has done this (9wins/season).

Rossi took the lead and the gap between him and pedrosa just kept increasing. did you guys see the battle for 3rd position between dovizioso and hayden. it was great. dovizioso kept his 3rd though (his 1st podium). Lorenzo low-sided mid-way, but was able to get back on and into the race. stoner's ducati seemed to have issues and lacked pace. fun race on and on.

Hey Bhupi, yup I saw that fight for 3rd...its was awesome last 4 laps. Divisioso was really fighting for his first podium and it was well deserved. Moreover he was on a privater Honda vs Niki's factory ride.

I think he's going to HRC next year and for sure he will be someone to watch out for.

nice race, enjoyed it from the start, rossi and pedrosa broke away from the pack to fight for the win, but rossi is going through a fantastic season and its not easy to stop him when he is at his best, i think he himself is the only person who can stop him or 2nd is his machine. Lols
All praises for Dovisiozo, what a batlle with hayden, i am sure hayden will be surprised with the way his battle went.
Last race this weekend and then a long holiday for everyone.

Next 3 seasons the Motogp is going to run on the policy of single trye company, i.e. all bikes will be only Bridgestone shodded. So lets see where the battle goes for next season.

250cc: Simoncelli has done it in style, another Italian on the world 250cc champion list. Kudos, good season for him too. Anyways there are some movements this year from 250cc to Motogp, dont know who exactly, but read it on their website.

racing lines he took were perfect, hayden didn't get a single chance to sneek through even though he looked faster.

Ok so Motogp Ends on a good note, with stoner taking the podium, at the last race i.e. At Valencia, followed by Dani, and Rossi, and Dovisiozo.

Rossi takes the championship in Motogp, Lorenzo, takes the trophy for Rookie of the year in motogp. Simoncelli, champion at 250cc. Season ends well.

Next year will One tyre manufacturer, all 2009 machines getting ready and test will begin soon. So break now!!

FYI, Indian racer Preetham Moses who was going to make his Motogp 250cc debut in Malaysia could not pull thru with sponsorship. Watch for him next year though.
