Those who say they will be voting with their feet and never going again, really funny HAHAHAHA.
Like you have ever been!

Those who say they will stick to WSB, good no more comments please, How many times this year did they stop the race, restart, stop and give half points?

AS my father picked when watching it, and confirmed int he press conference, Lorenzo chose the wrong tyre and had far less grip than the other two at the end of the race. His choice, his fault, his luck that it was stopped.

I SAW A BIG CHICKEN!
lorenzo probably had the wrong rear tyre choice (soft) which cost him later stage, but that supposed to be his own issue NOT motogp directors nor OTHER RIDERS.

The race could held for 2 more laps to adhere the rule. Which Stoner whould deserve 2nd.

If race direction were influenced solely by Lorenzo and not the spate of crashes or the standing water rapidly building on the track, then people should be criticising RD, not Lorenzo. Of course he wanted the race stopped as he had so much to lose from a DNF and as I said, if their positions had been reversed, in race and championship terms, then Pedrosa would have probably done the same thing and I wouldn't blame him. If the conditions were too bad to restart, they were too bad to continue to race.

i love how people are defending Lorenzo getting some serious help from race direction, thing is Casey and Dani were much faster than him, Lorenzo's tires were off and instead of losing with grace he started panicking and when he almost fell off pushing past the limits of the bike, race direction stopped the race, not because it was unsafe, because many riders had been thrown from their bikes, but because Yamaha ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO LOSE THIS YEAR. MOTOGP IS FIXED. Fixed to feed 'drama' in to a controlled racing series to attract idiot fans.

What a pity from Rossi, he prefer to stay beahind Dovi insted of attack Casey, maybe he feel that Dovi was going with good pace but then a mistake happen=/.. If Rossi dont make the mistake he could have get on the podium anyway good race.. I think race direction was wrong with 5 laps to go they should have continued the race.. they stop and think about the re start and condicons get even worst.. If the Race had continued even Stoner couls cach Lorenzo and the Champion would be more fun for the next races..lolo

to be honest, the conditions were getting worse but at the same time, officials cant base their decisions on a riders signals.....

fact is lorenzo went with the softer rear and used up his tyre by mid race(thats what he said)...so basically he lost his grip.....so he starts slipping and puts his hand up...he has a moment and red flag is waved.....

there is a high chance that had he not waved his hand, the red flag would not have been waved then and there.....

@ bbc joke,
Three to five minutes after BBC cut you off. The rain continued to fall harder and harder and the daylight was fading. The television cameras showed you couldn't see the end of the pit lane when the race was called. They held the ceremony with the racers on podium, but did not place the bikes out on park firma.
