race directions is to blame because nobody knew what was going to happen after the race was stopped, KA was unlucky and Dany being hit was a race incident anybody blaming riders is an idiot and if dany wants to leave hiden messages in his interview hes also an idiot, deep inside some riders will blame KA or barbera but **** happens

Race direction did things by the book, it was Pedro's team that screwed him.

It appears that everyone but Perdo's team knew what was happening. It was one cluster after another, including turning on Dani's pit lane rev limiter, which is why the safety car passed him.

I have just had another look at I-Player & again I am convinced that the jammed tyre warmer is the fault of a technician. It certainly looks as though the jammed wheel / warmer was caused by the fact that one of the ties was still fastened therefore the warmer could not come off. Those twits commentating on BBC did not notice either. Will someone else look at I player & confirm what I think happened. That the warmer appears to be still fastened, at the bottom of the jammed wheel

Yeah, the tyre warmer was still fastened at the bottom but the wheel should still rotate. Most tyre warmers on bikes are installed by securing one end around the wheel then rotating the wheel through 360deg as the warmer wraps around it. Reverse the process to remove it.

IMHO the front wheel looked to be jammed solid, way too solid to be the tyre warmer holding it up, as you could see the tech nearly lifting the bike off the ground trying to move it and it wasn't budging a fraction of an inch, you could also see another tech doing something near the right handlebar where the front brake lever is.
