There's something that everyone is overlooking, both Pedrosa and Dovisioso were behind other riders for the majority of the race, this would have made a substantial difference to their fuel consumption. This means in the last lap/laps of the race their engines would not be in fuel conservation mode but running richer and making more power. I'm not taking anything away from Pedrosa or Dovi, brilliant rides both of them. But perhaps Jorge should have let Pedrosa through earlier in the race and followed him for 10 laps or so conserving his fuel and forcing Pedrosa to use more. Of course Jorge (or whoever is behind) runs the risk then of not being able to re-pass at the end of the race
