Why's that bad? It's not the most character-packed track in the world but the races haven't been bad and I do love night racing to kick off the season.

I’m no fan of the track yet it’s always an entertaining race and good season opener for MotoGP

Losail is a meh track. I could do without it but the sheiks have all the money so it stays. And Qatar is buying out every god damn World Championships there is. I only wait until the host the Olympics in like 2040

On second thought, I think @John was just stressing upon the length of the contract.

Entertaining for the fucks, really.
I want to see teams prepare their bike for a circuit, not the other way round.
It has to be a challenge, well today the challenge seems to be sheiks funds

I very much like Losail, and it would be a welcome addition to the F1 calendar too.

You'd have to say Doviziosi is favourite for today, as straight-line speed on that long S/F straight is crucial.

A very good Moto2 race! Baldassari beats out Luthi by 0.002, and Remy Gardner just getting pipped at the line and have to settle for fourth.
