"When it's heavy rain we can normally find a bit higher pace than anyone else”
"if the race had gone through to the full distance we had a very good chance of winning it."

What an humble person! I'm sure everyone will miss his comments.

Six bikes had the softer rear tyre. Five crashed and Lorenzo was on his way to crashing when he panicked and put his finger up in a gesture of surrender. Three of the crashes looked like front end loses, probably a result of more front wheel braking when the rear lost grip. No conspiracy, just luck after a bad tyre choice by Lorenzo.

The last 6 laps don't really show at all that Stoner had up'd his pace enough for a chance to win the race.

@ Bozz. I totally agree with you however I don't think those times show the whole picture. The race was taken back a lap so you don't have the time for the lap which was not counted but I can tell you Stoner took a second out of Danny on that lap. I don't think he would have been to far away at the end and let's face it Danny would probably not have fought for the place for fear of dumping. I think we were cheated today
