If anyone wants to see how much tom Sykes lost as a result of running off track they need only look at the chronological analysis of the results on the superbike web site. He lost absolutely no time at all in any sector on that last lap. In fact his last 2 laps were in the 1:42s despite the offtrack on the last.. Now that's some going to miss out a chicane and not loose any time at all. Even Guintolli only lost a half second, but it is clear the only person who lost any time was Guintolli. I like Sykes, but that is simply not fair. It that seems like the FIM just set a precedent to carry on across the tarmac runoff for no penalty at all as long as you don't make a significant advantage. I was pretty sure in the past you had to give a place up. If this was allowed then Guintolli would have been better chasing Sykes across the runoff rather than take the slower run through the chicane he was forced into by deciding to keep to the rules and stay on the track.
