Totally his own fault, he should have been more patient and passed on an easier part of the track. There was nowhere for Ellison to go, or risk falling himself. Lorenzos ego goes to his head and things like this happen.

Look at Dani, much more focused and calm, like a true champ.

re: "Where was the CRT bike meant to go? Onto the wet part of the track and crash himself?"

nope, to pit lane... and then from pit lane to the crusher. any chance there's such thing as a mobile crusher...? can just park that puppy out back of the garages come season's end for quick and tidy disposal. why take up space in the lorries...? honestly.

With respect to Jorge, Understand he was trying to impress moto fans.
But, this crash would not happened if he still fighting for WC with Dani and Play Safe.

Lorenzo hunting not to plan in the race, as it went on. Good decision to recognize set up before festivities.

My grades:
Dismount 8 of 10
Airtime 10 of 10
Recovery 100 of 10
Disgrace 0 of 10

Blue flag means??

During the practice sessions, the rider concerned must keep his line and slow down gradually to allow the faster rider to pass him.

During the race, the rider concerned is about to be lapped. Also, this flag is shown to a rider leaving the pit lane if traffic is approaching on the track.

How can anyone miss the BLUE FLAG in those conditions?
