Looks like it's on the red button on BBC but live on Eurosport 2 at 6.45! Brilliant, proper commentators not that half-wit 'he's carrying a lot of speed into the corner' Aussie....

I take it back.

And some people call F1 boring?

I think I saw 1 passing move all race....

Nothing happened?

Don't let this race put anyone off watching Moto GP, it was possibly one of the most boring in 4 or 5 years. The problem is it's a boring, made for TV circuit, the bikes were running for the first time on control Bridgestone tyres which weren't ideal for a washed clean track and none of the bikes were set up for the conditions which were completely different from the days preceding.
If you're not convinced, try and find a video of Laguna Seca last year to see what real gloves off, non-steward interfered racing looks like.

I agree with verista,
Qatar does tend to be a boring track not much happened there last season either but the rest of the season was good. Losail is a boring Track that features little overtaking places for even Bikes, If lets say the F1 ran there we all would of been asleep from lap 5. The Moto GP season really starts now! you can trust me on that ;)

Don't worry guys, it won't put me off.
I've been watching MotoGP long enough to know that wasn't the usual fare.

Hopefully this will be the F1 equivalent of Valencia and there won't be too many more like it this season.
