He was pretty bashed up from two big offs earlier in the weekend, but he indicated in interviews that he also had a problem with his front tyre pressure getting way to high, making it difficult to stop and turn the bike.

As far as my knowledge goes, this is the first time in the history of modern GP bikes that the factory teams get shown up by satellite gangs. :eek7:

Brad has been given a long lap penalty at the next GP for crashing into Jack

Brad's mistake was to admit that it was his fault in the post race interview. He should have blamed Jack  :imaposer: and then let the stewards decide instead of being honest and throwing himself under the bus. (His second rookie mistake for the day)

How many do you own?

I can still remember supporting Suzuki & Kevin Schwantz, my dream bike at school was the RG50 .. but it hasnt translated into owning a Suzuki when I grew up.

Like Brad's going to bump into Jack just for laughs. Racing incident.

Ultimately you can classify everything as a racing incident but Brad himself explained how he messed this up.  I have no issue with the penalty as long as they apply this consistently from now on to all, including the superstars.

I think the reason they did not give him the long lap penalty already for Sunday's race was that it was too far to push the bike from the gravel trap to the long lap penalty section.

In BB33's own words:
"I had an okay start, got up on the inside in Turn 1, when I changed direction for Turn 2 I was coming into the corner like it was a regular lap and not taking into account that of course it gets a bit bunched up and the speed dies," explained Binder, before being notified of his Valencia penalty.

"I think one of the reasons that really put me in that position at Turn 2 was that I got right over the inside kerb at Turn 1, so I really came into Turn 2 carrying a lot of speed because I'd prepared the entry a lot.

"But I didnít take into account that a lot of guys were on the outside kerb at Turn 1. So of course into Turn 2, they were off the throttle and I was going in there as if it was a normal lap. That's pretty much the beginning of the end of me.

"So a big mistake on my behalf again and I'm really sorry to wipe Jack out at the same time.

"It's the second time I've done it this year, so it really, really sucks. Sorry to everyone at Pramac and Jack for messing up their race."

Miller was seen asking Binder what had happened as they stood in the gravel trap immediately afterwards.

"All I can say is 'sorry bud'. There's not so much you can say after an incident like that. I mean it was clear as daylight it was my mistake and unfortunately it cost someone else a race as well," Binder said.

"I don't know if it's a good thing or bad thing, but both times this year I've wiped out friends. It always makes it a lot easy to say sorry because you're mates, but at the same time it really, really sucks.

"It was nice of Jack to be super chilled about it, but I hope I never do that again."

Quote from Jack Miller:
Binder was seen putting his arm around Miller in the gravel trap as the Pramac Ducati rider tried to work out what had happened.

"I knew I must have got hit because it wasn't a normal highside or anything like that. I just stood up and saw Brad and I was like, 'what the f**k?'" Miller said.

"I got my helmet off and asked him 'what happened' and he said, 'I don't know man, I'm sorry'. So I told him don't worry about it. That's racing sometimes, especially here where it's so tight in the corners as well.

"When I watched it back, it just looked like he misjudged the group's speed and I was just the unlucky one to be in that spot. He needs to come to his senses sometimes, but we've all done it. I've done it, so I'm not going to sit here and curse him out. It is what it is."

I honestly do not understand the penalty coming into another race .. i would have thought that him falling off and getting no points would be the ultimate penalty already.
