MotoGP Indianapolis 2012: Dani Pedrosa dominates a category without soul

Dani pedrosa has raced his seventh podium and adds a new victory in MotoGP to cut the gap that separated him from the leader of the classification, Jorge Lorenzo, who was second today. The third hole in the drawer has fallen into the hands of Andrea Dovizioso, who is confirmed, in case there were doubts, as the best satellite bike in the category giving reasons for his more than likely signing for Ducati.

When the traffic light went out we feared a race-nap thanks to the absence of Nicky Hayden and the injuries of two riders at the controls of official motorcycles. Unfortunately, a lousy circuit for motorcycling and a category without soulThey were only able to offer us a few twists of entertainment.

Without wanting to detract from Dani's career, the truth is that the test had ended on the fourth lap, when the Repsol rider managed to overtake Ben spies. Almost effortless. Giving gas without compassion on the straight. The Texan, previously, had come out perfectly to be the provisional leader. However, after being overtaken, the engine of the Yamaha M1 was reaching the end of its useful life leaving a thick white smoke on the Indianapolis straight and giving all the more reason for him to seek his luck elsewhere. There are no coincidences.

That blown engine left a thick cloud that affected those who came after it. Jorge Lorenzo, third, was able to dodge the danger with greater or lesser success while Casey Stoner, fourth behind Andrea, had to open the line leaving a gap that was used by a daring Stefan Bradl. The German, fearlessly, not only crossed a slippery asphalt but drove several meters practically blind through the smoke.

The joy of the young Moto2 champion rider did not last long, as Stoner regained his position without too many problems and without being affected by the pressure exerted by Álvaro Bautista. After the talaverano circulated Cal crutchlow, who did not finish the GP by leaving by soil. Casey, infiltrated and injured, got to be third but finally the satellite Yamaha put an end to the hopes of the Aussie.

The race did not stop. Some tug of war between the times of Pedrosa and Lorenzo and little else, since the only battle, which could be in the CRT, was never the object of the realization. In short, a great victory for Dani, putting himself 18 points behind a happy Jorge with a second place. A cheerful Dovi for another great role. A pro Stoner and a handful of dollars on Dorna's account for the Indianapolis GP.

Of the CRT, by the way, the best was Yonny Hernández, after surpassing Aleix Espargaró and the abandonment of Randy De Puniet, Michel Pirro, Mattia Pasini and Danilo Petrucci.
