Well done Jorge and Bradl. Gotta feel for Nicky. I can only describe Stoner's rear tyre selection as idiotic. From any aspect you look at it (and I'm talking pre-race, not hindsight), that tyre selection was so obviously the wrong decision. It's right up there with his monumentally stupid decision to run wets in 2009 at Donnington when his rivals ran slicks. Desperate, stupid, slower. He was always going to struggle to make the podium this race, but that tyre selection guaranteed nothing but problems. For Stoner, this year is starting to look very much like his bad years on the Ducati. We're seeing stupid riding and stupid decisions, all part of a desperate mindset. Totally off the rails. His passing move on Bautista made me feel embarrassed to be counted as one of Stoner's supporters. That was the move of a spoilt brat. They both so easily could have come down.
