So there you go. The riders, the paddock, true fans and anyone with a working brain cell can see that the race was stopped on safety grounds NOT to give Lorenzo an advantage.

lolz. You guys actually think an employee would question their employers on twitter or through the mass media?

Anyways, I looked at Jorge's rear tire on the replay, and he had plenty of tread on it, the dude panicked hard, what you saw today was Jorge panicking, it had nothing to do with tire deg, Jorge had enough grip to pull away from Stoner down the straight. People believe lies all the time, and MotoGP is not short of lies in order to protect the integrity of the spectacle.

so here is the real trick, you guys, you know if Jorge can A pull away from Stoner on the straight, does this mean he has more or equal or less than grip than Casey with his rear tires. Do you guys even think before you accept what other people tell you is true???? Did you even look at the replay? Because if you do you will see Jorge is not missing a lot of tread down the middle of his tire like he claimed in the post race interviews....

The fact of the matter is...Lorenzo is a pussy! It had to stop, agreed. It did stop for good, agreed. But how many riders were asking, or for that matter pointing finger at Marshals/race-direction for it. Oh well, NONE! So, while you can argue on conspiracy theories between Dorna & Yamaha, the same can't be said about Lorenzo. He has completely lost a good chunk of respect, if not all, from us racing fans for sure...

Wet tyre degradation is not visible unless it is really stuffed. What happens is the tread no longer has sharp edges which decreases its ability to channel water. An overheated rain tyre also moves around quite a bit which makes the bike feel unstable when leaning over. Lorenzo did NOT have a faster top speed than Stoner for the last three laps. His tyre WAS worn out. Six riders had the soft rear and five of them crashed and Lorenzo almost went a over t. Can we end the conspiracy theory before somebody calls the men in the white coats.
