MotoGP » Marquez masters elements to match Ago at Assen


Truefan, which is why i stated that he made a mistake. However if they hadn't allowed the other bikes to rejoin the grid two things would have occurred, 1 Rossi wouldn't have had the chance to make the mistake, and would have been 4th across the start line with his main rivals starting from pit lane. 2 his main rivals would have started from pit lane. no doubt that may have made some difference to the race result. in the end Rossi was punished for his mistake, unfortunately his competitors weren't punished for theirs, due to some quick rule changes.

Truefan, Rossi actually made the right choice of tire to begin with, as did Jorge and aleix, as could be seen by the hondas et al being pushed off the grid to change to wets and start from pit lane. Cue a quick rule change to allow bikes who had entered pit lane after it had been closed to re join the grid ( there was no reason to allow extra sighting laps as there had already been wet weather in practice and the race had been declared wet) Admitedly he did then make a mistake with the gamble on slicks, but if they hadn't rewritten the rules he would have been fourth away from the line with the eventual winner starting from the pits

Whilst no one forced Rossi to go to the grid on slicks, if the bikes that should have started from pit lane (the ones pushed off the grid after pit lane had closed, because they had originally gone to the grid on slicks) he would have started the race in 4th on wets, with the eventual winner and third places riders starting from the pit, the results may have been somewhat different!

Brian, from what i saw they pulled the bikes off the grid before the extra sighting laps were announced. then during the time they were in the pits the bt sport pitlane reporter even anounced that dorna had said theyd made up the rule to reopen pit lane on the fly. so once again, if the rules had not been rewritten after the hondas (and others) had made the choice to start on wets from pit lane, the yams would have been 3rd and 4th away from the line, on wet setups, with the majority of those that finished ahead of Rossi starting at the back instead of him starting at the back, it would probably have made quite a big difference. if the extra sighting laps had been announced before they had been pulled off the grid they would have had to circle the track like Rossi and Jorge did to get back to the pits.
