undeserved. I feel for Dani. He had a real shot and little mistakes not on track ruined it for him. Nothing hurts more than those things beyond all control.

Some HRC mechanic will probably get sacked after screwing up the front tyre warmer. Costly misstake!
Hector taking a rider out is nothing new, you can't really blame him :-)
Impressive how Dani plowed through the CRT's, he was ninth after a couple of corners and busy attacking Rea.

Dani isn't out for the count yet, but it'll definitely take 5 stellar races to take the championship this year. I'm rooting for him big time. Damn it Barbera! Stay home. Your GP career is over.

@ pcxmac

This is the first time that I've ever witnessed you lambast Hector. He must have really pissed you off today eh?

Buck up Pedrosa fans! Winners never lose. Championship or not Dani is a top bloke and a top class racer. Haters are gonna say he's not competitive enough while the rest of us know what has happened today and has been the case for the last 7 years. Pure bad luck! Nothing we or anyone else can do about it. Just crib and feel gutted for him. Dani Pedrosa might be remembered as a championship leader that wasn't! Still the best for me. Go Go Go Dani-boy! :-D

Why is everyone so quick to blame Karel and Hector?
Karel's bike probably "thought" the race was over and it was time to go for drinks, and Dani pulled the old "swoop and squat" on Hector. 20 places in one lap never works. (watch the replay)

Groan. Just when you think that MotoGP can't go any further down the pan, this race happens. I think it's now most unlikely that Pedrosa, a rider who surely deserves to win the championship once in his career, now looks unlikely to do so this year. Which, unfortunately, probably means that he never will, given that Rossi will be back on a competitive bike next year and that there are some eager rookies arriving.
MotoGP has to be drastically revised. A contest where there are so few competitive bikes is starting to resemble the Bad Old Days of F1.
