it was a tough one. and at that level there obviously is a different meaning to the word yield. i dont see many of those guys yeilding. especially for a spot on the box. it seemed lorenzo, first into the corner, was in too hot and ran it wide. but d'angelis was bombing in way too fast too. making a bonzi move to try and get 2nd or 3rd. (who hasnt done the same thing or thought about it?) maybe it was just brain fade. maybe he just fucked up. personally, i dont think d'angelis was gonna make the corner even if he hadnt tboned lorenzo. i mean he hit him almost straight on. so he was on his way into the weeds regardless. and in the prior corner, he was bumping with pedrosa i think. i cant imagine pedrosa had slowed up that much. i mean d'angelis passed him like he was standing still. so thats why i think he got in too fast. i dont see it was by any means lorenzos fault. and if it hadnt looked like d'angelis was getting in way too hot, id say it was just racing, but the combination of the 2 mistakes i think made the crash happen. if it had been just racing, i think you would have seen the usual paint trading and thats about it. but they hit pretty good. if there is fault to be laid, it should be on d'angelis. but not for not yeilding, i think thatd be dumb. i think those guys should go out and try and win every race. if it was something where he was doing it every weekend, then it would be an issue. but seems like a one time gig. and both of them just running hard. so as weird as it was, i think it was just real hard racing and things just got wild. lorenzo in too hot, d'angelis the same, and they just wacked each other. worked out prety good for pedrosa again though eh??
interesting fact about a moviestar honda winnning there eh?? last person was kato.
