Estoril Portugal MotoGP Round 3

Great race with the majority of the race going through minor showers. Early on in the race they brought the white flags out to allow tire changes but no one made the change - a good decision by all. Poor old Haydon dropped it when he was looking good for a 4th or 5th just after De Puniet dropped it when he was a comfortable 4th! Both looked like low sides and neither were hurt so at least that's a good thing.
