From a former racer and race official, for the record, in a race the blue flag means -the leaders are approaching (lapping you) get out of the way-. If no blue flags were displayed then Ellison is in no fault, but even then a leader should not assume the (about to be) lapped rider will clear out. As Jorge said, he made a mistake, sooo easy in those conditions. I really can't imagine trying to ride a MotoGP bike in those conditions. Full dry, ok. Full wet, ok. 2-foot wide dry line on slicks with 250+ HP? No way! Glad no-one got hurt and this will have to be one of the most interesting post-season tests in years-Vale back to Yamaha, Marquez on a Repsol Honda, and it looks like Audi is going to turn the Ducati race department (concept, fabrication and funding) over like a mulch pile...
