By chance did you hear his explanation and how the telemetry supported his contention ?
About punting JL that is.

About his braking being the same and Lorenzo slowing, thereby backing up into him? Yeah, I did. Doesn't it remain the obligation of the following rider NOT to crash into those in front?

MotoGP?

Your question is the understatement of the day !
What really shows it for what it is, a stupid move that is, was remaining inside where an incident was all but guaranteed given the differential.

Even if Lorenzo hadn't been in the corner it looks like Iannone would have gone wide... he came in way too hot, and regardless of his claims, he fucked up. There was no hole there, and he tried to go inside, never even had a chance to show a wheel... Regardless of Lorenzo being slightly off pace the crash was 100% Iannone's fault.

I am curious about the data.. sure iannone shouldn't have ran into him, but it looked like Lorenzo's grip had gotten so bad that he had all but given up on trail braking and did all his braking before leaning in and I think that's what confused the hell out of iannone.. who knows. The maniac strikes again, guess Ducati is feeling a bit better about letting him go. god it was painful to watch the race knowing what was going to happen to him.. i try to ignore any highlights or discussion, but there were a few memes too funny to ignore.
has he explained what the hell was wrong with his bike yet? i'm guessing he's angry with the tires.

how about Marquez manhandling that honda.. how the @#[email protected] does he stay on that thing?! that anyone can have that much going on with the bike and still finish on the podium is amazing. In the interviews he was saying he was giving it everything he had and it sure looked like it.

as annoying as it was with the press asking Marquez and Rossi about the hand shake it was really nice to see.

I'm guessing it was the tires as well... They showed one super slo mo a few laps before he got taken out and his front tire looked roached. They did a super slo mo of Rossi just a few laps before the race ended and even after all those additional laps his didn't look as bad. I know that can mean a lot of things, but I'm guessing that's what it was.
