We take a look at the first MotoGP round of the season at Qatar. In this RaceTweet feature we scour Twitter to grab the best & funniest tweets to look at the weekend.

This is what most of us think of MotoGP.  Housemates/family beware
Sportscar’s Jonny Cocker has a good point.  Although MotoGP over the last couple of season’s hasn’t been the best – the race on the weekend was pretty decent.
 Rossi back with Yamaha and Marquez is all grown – the fight was awesome
 And Marquez wasn’t scared to get a bit of lean angle…

Rossi was back in Blue and going fast…
Though there were some awkward situtaions…
In fact is seems Rossi really did love Ducati and had to have a ride before the weekend was out…
There was a new qualifying procedure and it seemed to gain support, especially from those that did well
But it was Lorenzo who took out qualifying
The racing was tough, and Aussie rookie Bryan Starring felt it
These 3, and Pedrosa – I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot of them this year
And to end, a clear statement of the obvious
