Sunday's mad wet race at Motegi was what the paddock needed after the previous day's staggering revelations that Dorna are looking towards a control tyre for next year, because the racing was - and I quote the emotional people in this paddock - rubbish.
I say 'emotional' because they have obviously have no sense of history, nor perspective on this sport, nor indeed any other sports.
Everything is cyclical. Everything. The fact that one tyre brand is struggling for a couple of races doesn't mean that we need to reinvent the sport overnight. I cannot remember how many times I've said over the past few weeks, "why doesn't everyone just slow down a minute".
It's hardly as if Michelin are four seconds a lap off the pace all of a sudden. And for crying out loud, what's to say that Casey Stoner hasn't just ridden far better than the next bloke, and that includes Valentino Rossi? Yes, Rossi. It's no different than someone beating a triple jump of Carl Lewis or 1500 metre time of Sebastian Coe. Sooner or later it is going to happen. Fact.
