As I am certain you are already aware, there is quite a bit of controversy surrounding these new rules. The death of prototype-class racing and so forth...

I shut off my GP subscription after VR-MM disaster, mainly MM guarding J-Lo's rear and denying any bromance, have not looked twice at any GP stuff in month, but this makes me wonder if the same players will still be on top for 2016. Bottom line if Repsol still owns the show I'm not gonna watch it, or at least not gonna pay for it. SBK an BSB for 2016!

Stoner!!!!!! Making all the noises of a guy who is going to wild card some races this year. MM and VR? Fekem! My darkhorse to get a few podiums this year is Maverick Vingnales

Well,

Guess the common core ECU didn't quite provide the balance in the field that everyone predicted. Shame Viñales had such a crap start, but its a long season.

I'm conflicted about the state of MotoGP, but still find it more interesting than it was a few years ago. We all want to see the fastest, most sophisticated bikes in the world . . . .but we also want to see a good race. Is it a tech demo or a sport?

Yesterday, we saw 4 riders battling it out right up to the final lap. If Iannone hadn't lost his front end earlier in the race, it could have been a lot more interesting. My heart was pumping on the final lap, so I'd still call it a success.

Race was a snoozer, for once F1 was more interesting, like way more interesting (even without Fred's crash).

Everything is just the way I expected it, same riders doing for the win and finishing almost as predicted. Hope there are changes for next race, like both Ducati making is to the final lap, Crazy Joe showed his pace and I'm sure he can do some damage if he can keep it on 2 wheels, because he is like a Honey badger, he don't give a fuck, will battle anyone and everyone, which I think is most dangerous for J-Lo if he disrupts his pace.

Well that was an unexpected final podium.

I mean, the same old faces we have all become accustomed to, but Ducati teamwork certainly shook it up at the last minute (turn, whatever). Overall a good race, shame Vale's 2nd bike wasn't working right.
Did anyone else get the impression that Lorenzo binned it once he realized his bike wasn't doing what he wanted? It just seemed like his low-side was unforced, and he made little effort to pick up what looked like a pretty lightly rashed up machine.

An poor Dovi, can that guy get a brake? Last time it was the Maniac, this time Pedro bowled him right out...

MM no surprise, J-Lo had noting for him, VR... pushing too hard because he was compensating for a slipping clutch?
What a crashfest overall, at least everyone in the same boat, same new tires

So apart from some concerns related to the tires, it seems like the spec ECU's and other rules haven't made much difference.

so far they just seem randomly affected by the changes except that the top guns are still the top guns. For me this introduction of a random factor is the opposite of a fair competition where everyone has to compete with the same basis and thus the same tools and chances.

From what I understand the Bridgestones had better edge grip, suits Yamaha and J-Lo's style

Michelins provide better off the corner traction, suits Honda and MM.

Front end feel obviously not as good as with B-Stones and it's catching everyone out.

For what I read about the post race intw's, the Bridgestones used to give more info to the rider about their limits while the Michelin is very efficient but just suddenly lose it without any warning.

That totally explains the number of crashers, I mean Cal going down does not surprise me, but VR and Pedro rarely crash, and then there was a J-Lo incident in Argentina... I know, wet, cold, still he just dropped, not like him to go down so easily

Regarding Pedro, it does make me wonder what if any impact the tires had in his bike bucking the way it did just prior to washing out Dovi.

What a crash fest that turned into, poor Ducati just isn't meant to get a podium this year no matter how hard they try. And love him or hate him, I gotta give credit to Marc for picking up his wrecked-ass bike and earning a few points, never know if those may be important later. Dare I say he is showing way more maturity this year than last. Overall I would rate this one below Jerez last week, if only for the multiple battles for various positions, this one everybody just kind of spread out.
