With three riders in the top 5 and one rider winning the Grand Prix Yamaha had a good start for the 2012 season.The only dissapointment for Yamaha is from Ben Spies Yamaha Factory rider who settled for 11 th place.
Honda can be happy about the fact that there are two riders in the top three and the bad news for them is the satellite riders settling for 7 and 8 positions.
Seems like Ducati is going to have a tough Moto GP season with Nicky Hayden in sixth place the only hope Ducati has will be on Nicky hayden.
This Grand Prix had again proved that the Honda bike is a perfect mixture of Performance and top speed while the Yamaha is more performance oriented and Ducati bike is focused on top speed.
