Cal probably wanted more fuel than everyone else received.

He would have started with a full fuel load at this track--he was concerned about fuel consumption before the race.

Ben Spies' data says one thing, he says another. Data doesn't .... mince words?

W..T...F ?

If his brakes worked do you really think he would have hit the wall?

Let's just sum up Ben's season, shall we?

What is this wall-hitting you speak of?

I missed the first five laps so I am in the dark about this, and no mention of it in the post race interviews...thus my inquiry.

Went off (straight off) in six, I think, bounced through the trap, almost got stopped, hit wall, fell over.

I think they mentioned the data to rule out another reason (maybe braked much later, was carrying more speed, etc.)

Dorna puts fuel limits on the MotoGP bikes to slow them down in order to make the CRT POS bikes appear competitive.
That cocksucker Ezpeleta can't get it through his fucking head that racing is a speed contest, not a fuel efficiency contest.
MotoGP is over, but Dorna has figured out a way to milk it for a while longer before the whole thing collapses.
The fuel limit backfired. Instead of making the race more competitive, it killed the threat of competition to any of the front runners.
Greedy bastards and fucking idiots are running the show.
Hasta la vista.

Nah the answers simpler than that.........the mechanics knew he wouldn't finish the race.......that he'd fall off and waste fuel......sooo only gave him a few litres of fuel which = much lighter and faster bike, him being unaware of this gets to the corner much faster than usual.........and.......well you know the rest....

The fuel limits are in place at the instigation of the manufacturers.
To justify the giant racing budgets they need to show something is being learned that applies to street bikes. Exploration of the interplay between electronics and fuel consumption in performance machinery is something that justifies those budgets.

Your anger at Dorna regarding this one is misplaced.

LOVED the video coverage of the glowing hot rotor that they freeze framed and enlarged - so cool to see that.
