MotoGP » Lucky escape for Lorenzo

“In the last lap I almost crashed. I have been very, very lucky because one '0' here would mean the championship was much more difficult” – Jorge Lorenzo.

It was an epic moment for the championship when he crashed, and an epic feat when he saved it a milisecond later.

That deserves nothing but +props in my books. You can put together all the talent the armchair experts of the world could offer, and still you won't come remotely close to that.

MASSIVE respect.

The race was only dangerous for those who chose the soft tyres. They were the ones crashing. Those who chose the correct tyres, including Stoner, were not struggling when the red flag came out. They were penalised for making the right decision. If Lorenzo thought it was dangerous he should have pitted and jumped on his other bike. You are allowed to do that if the compound is different. Perhaps in another couple of laps the standing water would have made it unsafe. There would have been no arguments about it stopping then.

I think, in indianapolis 2008, there was same weather condition with sepang 2012.. But, rossi didn't raise his hand to stop the race, although he was leading the race..
We can see now, who is a chicken, and who is a true champion..

I don't disagree with race direction's stopping the race, however, I go with those who agree that they should've let the race run for at least another 2 laps before it was stopped. And before race direction formally announced the termination of the race, didn't everybody wait for the rain to subside and then continue the race afterwards?

I dont care if JLo won the championship this year, Dani is the best this season. He was the fastest and the strongest. He matured a lot this year, and everyone see the result of that. Shame he still didnt get the luck he needs in some races though.
