Heading for the inside after Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) attacked teammate Jorge Lorenzo and both headed away from the apex, it was then two bikes heading for the same space and a domino effect that took all three out. Judged a racing incident by Race Direction, both Pedrosa and Lorenzo said similarly that the three men involved weren’t known for their on-track aggression – “we are three riders who don’t have that ‘profile’ of riding” – and no one was injured, leaving the lack of points, undeserved for all three, as the biggest consequence of the incident. Pedrosa says it left him “sad and disappointed”, and not only for himself but also for them – “especially Dovi, given the Championship.”
