Wtf are you talking about blah, Lorenzo was on the better bike when he won his championships, you can use the same argument. Theyre equal, and dani is winning now because the honda is better now.

Stats dont mean everything, lorenzo will be winning this year because he can stop a race by raising his hand like a magician. Hes been lucky this year, like hes been with every champ he won. He main rivals injured.

Next year he will be showed up watch this space. rossi,marquez and dani will be kicking him bigtime

agreed......jlo got extremely lucky today....but this one incident does not make him an unworthy champion!!!! if he wins it then its thoroughly deserved...afterall, he has been very consistent throughout the season. sure pedrosa is putting up a brave fight but its too late.

Jorge is perhaps lucky to finish second after red flag, but the honda boys (especially Dani) can't complain to have been alloted the full points though the race had beeb interrupted before 75%.

Right decision from race direction.

Lorenzo didn't feel safe with the hard rain so he raise his hand. I couldn't see what's wrong with that decision. He didn't plan a suicide mission. Then Dorna decided to stop the race and all of you are thinking about conspiracy theory??! Come on! A lot of riders crashed and 1 rider pointed unsafe race. Red flag safe all riders ass even Pedro & Casey. Only riders knew how dangerous the situation was and Dorna made decision based on what they saw. Noone to blame. Whatever Casey said, I can't believe him (1st about retiring, he said journo was lie but it's true, 2nd about sachesenring pushed to hard and crashed but he said he could win it. I meant come on..admit it!, 3rd he said the interview about Rossi & JB happened last year but journo said it was several months ago, etc). How can we know if he can go for 2 more laps & don't find himself on the gravel.

Lorenzo showed his class of true champion. He has the talent with no doubt but really smart & wise with every decisions he made durin

So Lorenzo is allowed to make the decision of stopping the race on behalf of everyone ?

If he felt he could not go further he should have pitted in.

More than 80 people agreeing with such a B.S. post, really ????

So many bitter haters, we all know from where they're coming from by the way, are just waiting for any opportunity to get down on Lorenzo. For F's sake this is pathetic.

The race has been flagged perfectly, at the right time.

Patrick, it was absolutley right to stop the race just look at the picture left.

However its not 75% its rounded off 2/3 distance which equates to 13 laps. I hope I never see half points agin its ridiculas.

Lorenzo did not call the race, race direction did. Any rider input on the decision would have been discussed with all riders at the rider meeting prior to the race. Since no rider or team has complained it is safe to say that everyone in the paddock felt the decision was appropriate.

This is Malaysia they were racing in and they knew that rain was likely and safety was going to be a major consideration due to last years race and the pre race events.
