@JapDance unfortunately, the rules are the rules.

Yamaha wasted an engine because their electronics didn't protect the engine after the Bautista incident. It's tough on Jorge, because he can't ride around that kind of software failure, but it was definitely a design fault with the Yamaha that cost them an engine. But they are two engines down on Pedrosa, so the other loss is straight out reliability and/or endurance.

The Bridgestones suit the Yamaha better, partly because they handle better anyway, and the engine rule suits Honda because they make better engines.

It makes the championship more interesting. I still think Jorge is good enough to manage his bike to the end, or live with the penalty, and still become WC. I just want to see Dani go for it anyway. There's still a long way to go this weekend.

I wasn't excusing Lorenzo, just stating a fact to explain why Casey Stoner is now higher in the classification. When race day comes, Jorge will have a brand new engine (the last one available I think) fitted on his M1, and the aussie will have to make wonders with that sore ankle to be in front of him.
