to be fare i think it was not only too wet but too dark as well.
jlo used a soft tire and it was burned out , it was very clear casey on a harder tire was going to get him as casey was pushing very hard once he got his mojo working and jlo was almost certain to crash before the last lap got anywhere near him.
he was defiantly trying to save his hide by trying to stop the race , and stop it did right as casey was going to pass.
the bottom line is it was too dark and wet and with riders falling left and right it was safer to say enough , even if the timing of it did save jlo.

Vilas are you sure it wasn't because the FIM thought that Rossi might catch them all and win?

Why don't some of you join twitter and add people like Ian Wheeler who is actually there standing in pit lane? They were also showing picture on the Motogp where you could not even see the corner from pit lane, nor the safety car as it went out.

If the race wasn't stopped, Lorenzo would have crashed out or he'd have to slow down so much that he would have been passed by Hayden and Rossi who had made the CORRECT TYRE CHOICE!

Casey got out at the right time IMO. Hopefully Rossi might think twice about going to Yamaha and getting the Spies treatment...

@st1200
Yes, but the outcome would have been similar. I don't think the front runners of Moto2 would have clawed their way back up to the front with the remaining laps, but I DO think CS would have passed JLO and quite possibly my 'fave' ( VR46 )may have moved up another place. I just meant with the conditions "let it ride", there had already been lots of DNF's -why stop it now !

they where taking more less 2 and 15 secunds for lap.. with 5 laps to go if they had contued only on the final lap would be dangerous.. We wait a lot until they decied somethingh and on that time condicons get worst but then when they go on the podium allready was with good view.. they could have done the full race.. They stop because Lorenzo and he was dangerous because he loss the grip thats Dangerous.. but guys like Pedrosa Casey Rossi had tyres to make the full race distance
