Tell me what you think!
Alright so for those of us who watched most of or the whole race of MotoGP round 16 in Malaysia who thinks Lorenzo's waving hand was an excuse to call the race so he could keep a points advantage on Pedrosa?
Here is what I see, Stoner was creeping up on Lorenzo very hard and Pedrosa had a significant lead on Lorenzo. Lorenzo chose the softer tire option and he even said in the interview that since he chose the softer tire he wasn't getting the traction he needed.
Stoner and Pedrosa were running the hard tires and they didn't slip around nearly as much as Lorenzo. Also the CRT or ART whichever you want to call them none of those guys reached out to the race directors and their electronics aren't as great as the factory riders! Were the conditions getting bad? Yes, however there was at least 8mins before the safety car even went out and did a lap before the weather got worse which would have got another laps in.
My thoughts is Lorenzo knew that he made a bad tire choice and used track safety as an excuse to call the race to keep second place! If the race would have kept going for even 2 more laps I bet he would have crashed or Stoner would have passed him no doubt!
