    Qattar was certainly more exciting.

    Race 1 looked like it was going to be a boring walkaway but ended up with a decent finish.

    Race 2 - that was a scary highside by TC especially with all the following traffic. I thought Barros did an increible job of 1) not crashing and 2) just grazing Corser rather than running him over. Corser did a pretty good job of life preservation as well after a fairly good strike to the head.

    I love those british announcers and their enthusiasm but why are they always going on about Walker & Muggeridge who always seem to be at best, mid pack?

    It's interesting to see how Ducati has managed to work out it's traction control compared to the Hondas & Suzukis as they slide into and burn out of each corner.

    I hope I didn't spoil things for anyone, Corser didn't win in race 2, someone else did!
