Good lap by JL but yet again Pedrosa's fastest lap ruined by a CRT (and then Rossi).

How many times did that happen to Dani this season? I remember Misano was the same (but didn't lose pole 'cause his previous lap was good enough) and at Estoril, and maybe a couple more times. but can't remenber.

@win that's just the nature of the sport.

Back in the days of forty bike grids the difference between the fastest and slowest riders was every bit as great as it is today and there was a lot more traffic to contend with. Getting a proper flying lap was a real skill.

The difference is today that the top riders want everything their own way and their fans even more so.

@Danny Powell With 38 points in hand Lorenzo doesn't NEED to win more races to secure the title.

He WANTS to win more races and that tells you the kind of racer he is. If he wanted to he could just follow Dani round every weekend and still win the championship by at least 13 points, but he want to win races to stamp his authority on the title.

Dani OTOH knows he HAS to win every race from now on. Every time he finishes behind Jorge the gap gets bigger while the available points total shrinks.

Also he knows he can afford to take risks, but Dani can't. If Jorge were to throw it away this weekend and Dani were to win the lead would still be 13 points. If the tables were turned it would increase Jorge's lead to a huge 63 points.

Just watch the inverted star he's wearing. That's the star of the church of satan.
This dude made a pact with the devil, that's why everyone who compete with him end up injured of with mechanical problems. He has an army of devils and satan himself that are working for him. That's the truth you can't handle, but is the truth. Hes a total fake and a satanist that will be in Hell, Mar 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
