Tyres same for all. Fallers all pushed the front harder than the mechanical grip, simple as that. Jorge didn't blame the tyres, he blamed himself for making a mistake.

The electronics sort out the rear once dialled in. So a rider can make a mistake and LOSE time, but cannot really MAKE time back with the throttle once he is behind. All the rider can influence directly is not really speeding up, but slowing down - braking.

So seems all the optimised and do called safer TC and digitised throttle application is doing.... Is shifting the riders focus to trying to brake and turn harder and later instead. Jorge knew he needed to push, and the only tool left to him is to push the front.

Note ALL the crashes in the race were front end lock ups while fighting to make up time or to make a pass stick and keep in front.

The guys who stayed on - esp MM & VR did the job of managing to brake the hardest most consistently without losing the front better than anyone who fell. Simple.

I was very disappointed to see Jorge crash out but as has already been said,its a long season and he has time to recover.
I think he just tried too hard to soon and paid the price.
Better luck next time Jorge!
