That was one hell of a tank slapper, Casey did well to hold onto that, and then to approach the corner with no brakes... Casey should be happy with third. As far as the championship is concerned, Dani did Casey a bit of a favour by beating Jorge.

40 Point lead with three races to go should see him win it, shame it is less likely to be at Philip Island unless Jorge has a nightmare.

I suppose everyone was on a different track to casey, always someone elses fault..
Off or not he lost 8 secs and was 18 secs down at the end face it casey, dani was just quicker than you today, so was Jorge and Sic and Dovi.. and Rossi pity he fell off.

@cheese grater .

Lol, do yo watch the race, he was just as quick as front 2, interview on BBC he said once he got to third he just bought it home as he could not make up 10 seconds before race end.

And he lost at least 10 - 15 seconds in the gravel!.

Laughable Rossi comment...

Your bumps was more than the talent!!!
Rookie mistake not using the front brake to push the pads back before the corner.

I bet its not the first bike he has lost the front brake due to a tank slapper it must have happened every session last year on the Ducati!

Well, I guess this means no record points this year for Stoner & HRC, as the most they can get now is 375... If you got to blame something, why not bumps...

Lucky for Stoner that Dovi & Somoncelli where penalised with a ride through, cause it could have been worse...

The only one that truly benefitted by showing up to Motegi was Lorenzo, though not by much...
