Bye bye championship? I mean anything changes, all of a sudden Cal and Rossi are in for a chance to bring themselves back into play and Marq defo will tomoz.

Just depends on what Ped does now.

Wisdom over bravery finally.The fact that Jorge needed a bone graft for the repair this time would have awakened him to the risks if he crashes again. He did his best to come back early but it didn't work out. Time now to take the long term view and get himself properly healed.

yeah i agree with the people that are more racional!! After what we have been waching in Motogp i can only say that my feeling is that we will have war until the last round and Lorenzo will be in the game, then we will find the champion.. Will be really exciting to follow=)

Dammit just when it was shaping up to be an awesome season.

I don't think Jorge or Dani are mugs by any standard.

A lot of other riders have been spat off recently but luckily they bounced, more or less.

I blame the tires. They are so knife edge even with all the electronics.
With a control tire there is no need to sacrifice safety for the last fraction of corner speed.

Give them some less grippy more predictable tires, then perhaps the TC can be limited, more sliding around and less highsides.

Bridgestone have been ****ing up the tires all season long, Jorge said the front tire is dangerous because its too soft, and here the rear tire is too hard causing people to jack it up.

Pirelli and Bridgestone holding the control tire have no interest in providing the best tires they can only feeding in to the show so they can do as little work as possible and bank as much as they can.

The control tire is about the show, it's not about fairness. Lose the control tire and the electronics, and you will get back to real racing. Pretending you can legislate fairness is a trick politicians try to feed voters so they can justify their paycheck, and last I looked there are some really fat hogs eating it up in GPs.

"Dammit just when it was shaping up to be an awesome season."

Dani and Joge out and Marc, Vale and Cal catching up... By the time Jorge comes back the points will be closer. That means it will be an even more "awesome" season!

#99 is far from out of the championship title. There are a lot of races to go yet!

If he had still been riding in "Damage Control" mode this incident would probably (or less likely to) not have happened.
Why was he pushing so hard?
Because he is a racer and that is his saving grace for his stupidity.
Bet if he had the time over again he would have controlled the red mist better. Now it's a even bigger struggle for him in the championship.
Get well soon.

2 years practice don't make people humble. The one who left by 50 points said that Lorenzo miss 2 race will make it dificult to Jorge. to be a wc. So, who is Rossi talk to be a wc??
