I watched a youtube video of the race. I don't know if it was a matter of microphone placement, but Dunlop's engine sounded better than McGuinness'. Quite a bit better

The penalty cost him second place not the win, even without the penalty the gap between him and Michael Dunlop would have been more than 20 seconds at the end of the race and the way Michael was riding in that race not even John wasn't going to catch him.
