Mick Doohan watches the Gauloises Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix from home

Unfortunately I couldn´t make it up to Malaysia for the Grand Prix this weekend but I watched the race on TV back home in Australia and now I am really looking forward to being at Phillip Island next week. Max Biaggi rode well to give Yamaha a result I guess they needed, but the way Valentino Rossi closed him down at the end makes me think that things could have been different had he got past Barros and Ukawa earlier.

It was an excellent race from all those guys though because the nature of the Sepang circuit makes it difficult to pass. The only way to get through is late on the brakes - which makes for exciting racing but can also mess things up. I guess both those things happened today if you look at it from a Honda point of view.

There will be more four-strokes on the grid at Phillip Island and after the race we had there last year I think we can expect another cracker. Hopefully I will see plenty of you there.
