rear tires or electronics. MotoGP is such a joke, can't wait till they are on Dorna ECUs then it will be a real joke. Love watching Dani lose rear traction, hopefully he retires after this year, it doesnt matter if Dani is faster, his bike wont be.

how many time have we seen MM almost take out a rider under brakes so far this season..

however i dont blame MM for Pedros crash, Pedro just got on the throttle to early coming under pressure from MM..

Ban those electronics. We have seens sooo many highsides in the last years.

Was that sensor hanging out or what? They barely touched... I do wonder if that was the real cause or just your Traction Control was messed up(software bug!?).

Feel sorry for Dani. I hope no injuries. Bad birthday present.

electronics give average riders better finess, but in most cases it only benefits factory level and well supported riders. Its not necessary. People who support electronics are the same kind of people who support paying ridiculous taxes to abusive governments, they love repeating what they are told.

Dani might not have had the best line, but it did look like he was holding it, he lost it on acceleration, when his tires decided to spin up and high side, that means he either lost the tire (so early in the race, typical) or his electronics threw him off. You make the call. Dani was not really in a bad way when his bike ditched traction.

btw, i am starting to see Dani lose grip the closer he gets to his teammate (behavioral pattern this year), proximity detector? telemetry link? lolz. One day MotoGP will be Dorna ECU's with the puppet masters pushing speed up and slow down, this sport is such a fracking joke. Probably the same gluttons for punishment that direct the camera and enjoy watching people crash.
