MotoGP Jerez - spoiler

No great surprise on the race winner.

Very unfortunate incident for Lorenzo, Dovi and Pedrosa - is Pedrosa the unluckiest rider in the history of MotoGP?

Thought Dovi's comments post race were a bit unnecessary - Dani couldn't really have done all that much about that.

Unfortunate for the championship, especially with how consistent Marc has been this year.
IMO Jorge was at fault. Dovi probably didn't want to cause tension with his team mate and within Ducati as why he said Dani was more at fault.

I lost a little respect for Dovi after the comments about Pedrosa. Dovi was being aggressive by trying to go late on the brakes to get around Lorenzo. When you are aggressive it opens up possibilities for unfortunate things to happen and that's what exactly happened.

Dovi probably could have overtaken JLo on 2-3 occasions in previous laps but was being the gentleman as he usually is. Didn't want to give JLo reason to say how "unfair" he is riding. He was so upset because deep within he knew he could have been past his team mate long time ago but was lacking the balls...

thing is, it's not anyones fault.

dovi made a race pass, which made him overshoot the turn-in.

lorenzo ran wide , tried to square it off to gain back maximum drive. not knowing if there was another rider (no pit-board info from the team on Dani's distance), he went for the optimal line. trackday riders and hobby racers might look and see it as normal to look, if you're looking for thousands, you don't. then dani was there ...

dani, being able to watch all this, could have made the assessment to see how the two ducatis untangle.... but he didn't, since he is also a professional racer looking for the last thousands, held his line, hang off and didn't look beyond. he could have head or seen JLo, but he was on the opposite side of the bike.

so, JLo and Dani collided, where at this point, JLo was in the front so he had the "right of way" by the rules, where the passing rider (Dani) has to make a clean pass.

until then, no one hadn't even crashed. but JLo was forced by Dani to stand it up, slow down to prevent crashing and running off. same for dani.

with nowhere else to go, Dovi clipped JLo's rear and the wrecking ball hit all three...

The accident was unfortunate but I think it would be hard to place the blame squarely on one individual.

Hopefully the next race has a real battle for the lead. For the first time in awhile I've been enjoying Formula 1 more than Motogp.

announcers said something crazy after the race. MM in the gp class has won 40% of the races. thats insane.

just think if it was any other rider but flopsi marquez would be up huge already with 95 out of 100 points.

40% in the current era is very impressive. Lots of guys out there capable of winning on any given weekend.

Rossi's win percentage was over 50% from 2002 to 2007. But in fairness, there weren't many challengers.

many reasons why flopsi was at 50% during that time. tires being the main reason. not saying you are a rossi fanboy or anything but i love how when anybody talks about rossi they forget the ducati years but bring it up about lorenzo constantly. its like rossi was never at ducati.

the troubles on the M1 show clearly that rossi cant develop a bike and it was lorenzo that did the work there as zarco is faster on an old limited m1 than both factory guy, but to be fair to maverick they arent taking his input.

anywho give me 7 MM is unstoppable 2010, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18
