I saw the rear tyre but tbh i thought he must have done a burnout for the win of his home (literally his home it seems lol) gp which is why it was in such a state, can't believe you could honestly race with it that mullered. Espagaro did very will today, thought Scott did as much as he could...sensible race, only lost 8 points in terms of his lead but Espagaro will be happy to be back in 2nd overall. 35 points the gap is still good :)
