SPEEDCORNER.NET – On lap eighteenth and sixth bend incident involving three racers, namely Dani Pedrosa, Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo. And it makes everyone debate to say ‘who’s wrong’.
The dynamic is actually quite simple, Dovizioso should be more patient to overtaking Lorenzo and wait for the right time and situation even though it will take a long time.
While Lorenzo is also not too fast, but he tried as much as possible to block racing line Dovizioso. While Dovizioso is slightly faster than Lorenzo, if he continues behind Lorenzo then he will be further away from Marquez. That is the reason why Dovizioso can not wait to overtaking Lorenzo.
After looking back, here’s the conclusion I got:
Dovizioso passed Lorenzo in an inappropriate situation. he should not have done it too early even though he was a bit faster than Lorenzo though. He has to wait, because he knows that Lorenzo uses a soft tire and is likely to run out of grip in the near future, but he forces in an inappropriate situation. It was her fault.
Lorenzo was wrong for forcing to finish in front of Dovizioso. It is only natural that he wants to finish in front of Dovizioso, but if he sees the standings board he should understand what he should do. Yes, he should have allowed Dovizioso to pass him in a few laps before, even before Dani Pedrosa approached. But he still uses his right as a racer in front to close the path Dovizioso.
Pedrosa was also wrong to try to exploit an inappropriate situation, after he saw Dovizioso widen, he tried to go in for take a chance, but he did not realize that Lorenzo was still trying to secure his position. And finally the collision happened.
