In all fairness to Casey,he admitted that it was not the way he wanted to get those points back.Noone likes to see a fellow rider crash out like that and i am glad Jorge and Alvaro were ok.
But 25 points are 25 points!
As the old golfing saying goes,they dont draw pictures on the score card.
He now has equal points with Jorge and has to take advantage of that fact.This has made a big difference to the championship.Casey will be sleeping easier tonight.Jorge will have steam coming out of his ears.

Shows how much respect they have for each other, Lorenzo will come out swinging in the next round while Casey knows his strength is in this half of the season.

Honda now have an opportunity to take it to the wire if they focus on getting the bike sorted.

The only winners here are us, the arm chair races
We have the start of the season all over again, you gotta be happy with that

A real bummer for George, but this blows it wide open for HRC. Soft Bridgestone data from this race puts them right back in the ball park in terms of chatter issues. The 2 HRC bikes looked well settled throughout on the soft rubber. One of those anomalies.
Theory suggests harder rubber for higher temperature and sometimes the reverse is the truth.
No doubt Rossi will advise Bridgestone as to what compound they need to employ future hence. Throttle control destroys or saves rear tyres in general.
Too used to post race 'burnouts' with Michelin rubber comming home to roost.
Almost forgot the safety officer. Old Loris won many a race for Ducati on Bridgestone.
