These are always tough calls by Race Direction. There's often a fine line between an over-taking maneuver being under control and one being 'hope for the best'. Race Direction certainly doesnt want to have Racers 2nd guessing themselves and worrying about a fine if they happen to crash and take somebody else along with them. That's part of racing. In hindsight we can all see that this attempt at passing was going to result in a crash so as somebody already pointed out, Iannone's co-co butt to Espargaro handed Race Direction a gift. Espargaro is naturally unhappy. This incident has cost him the difference between 6th and 4th place in the standings.
