He touched the wheel of Espargaro a few corners earlier surprised he didn't go down then, those CRT's need to get the f**k out of the way, lucky he had already won the championship.

I am very glad that no one got hurt today. Cal had a nasty fall too. I do not want to sound obnoxious now but my gawddddd that was a spectacular flight by Jorge...He surely took everyone's breath away with that, as rightly pointed on the official MotoGP twitter page!!

That crash was horrible. Jorge was very lucky. He rotated through the air a few degrees more than Wayne Rainey when he high-sided at Misano and was paralysed. He landed head down too. Ugly. CRTs are mobile chicanes.

Thats what blue flags are meant to be for, if they were out I didnt see em, ellison was not the only one who didnt seem to realise the bike behind was one of the leaders so can't really blame him, lorenzo did have the option of not riding into the back of him, so kinda his own doing really.

Blue flags actually mean faster rider approaching. It doesn't mean, get off the racing line. The onus is on the faster rider to pick a safe pass. Ellison did nothing wrong. Nasty fall all the same and was bad luck for JL.
