I certainly don’t wish for riders to get hurt, but Marquez was lucky not to be. Pedrosa lost the chance of having his main rival out of the race, and spoilt the one of overtaking him on track.
I hear Marquez was penalised for his crash but I don’t know how nor when. In F1 he would’ve got a grid penalty and due to the seriousness of his mistake I was surprised the stewards decided agains influencing his race with the penalty.
Great race by the top 3, Pedrosa, then Marquez and Lorenzo made it thrilling as usual! But Dani should get back to winning now!
What the hell is going on with MotoGP this weekend? They seem to be making it up as they go along. Yesterday it was reported that the race length would remain the same, with a mandatory pit stop between 12-14 laps, and now today it IS shortened, with the window before lap 10. No wonder people were confused.
Next race the top ten riders must play a game of fizz buzz using wheelies when they cross the line in order to qualify.
The rules were updated to reflect the changing conditions. Today was considerably cooler than yesterday, which made the degradation suffered by the tyres much more exaggerated than they had been throughout the weekend.
