Sepang MotoGP: Dani Pedrosa wins to end rain jinx

Dani Pedrosa scored the first wet weather Grand Prix victory of his career earlier today after he triumphed in atrocious conditions at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia. The Repsol Honda rider was leading the way in monsoon conditions when the race was red flagged on lap 13, with Race Direction declaring conditions too dangerous to continue. Cal Crutchlow, Andrea Dovizioso, Stefan...

I think Jorge should ignore'  Stoner and concentrate on sticking to Dani's tail-pipe if he can't beat him.   I hope the last 2 races are dry so we can enjoy the best of it.

poor dani

riding his nuts off in the races thus far, unbelievable control in the wet...something i thought i would never have said of the little guy. Whats odd is i thought the Yamahas were perhaps the most stable bike on the grid, yet three riders fell off and one was close enough to binning it! and yet the chattery Hondas are still up near the front. Lorenzo/ Rossi better start praying Honda dont sort out the chatter once and for all come 2013..

Ridge....

Maybe the Honda's weren't really suffering from chatter when they were set up for the wet, maybe the softer settings help.  They did look like a handful in the dry though.

 

Dani's ridden well in the wet in the past, only to push a bit to hard and fall off, a la Germany a few years ago when he bust his wrist while leading comfortably.

 

Would be nice for Stoner to finish between Dani and Jorge this coming weekend, just to close things up a bit going in to Valencia.

An idiot squeaks ...

... "Poor ride from Dovi today."

Well a poor start (due to wheelspin), but a "poor ride" - what a stupid comment from CH987.

Passing Rossi, Hayden, Spies, Crutchlow, Bradl, Bautista, Barbera, Espagaro & De Puniet - within just 2 laps;

Pulling-up onto the back wheel of third placed Stoner by the tenth lap;

Crashing when the front washed out (off the brakes) mid-corner and remounting;

Riding without a rear brake and a damaged throttle to still finish the race (when more than 33% of the starters didn't);

Scoring points - and all this in the most treacherous conditions.

Sure it was a disappointing end to a promising weekend for Dovi, but to say that he rode poorly is plainly ridiculous.

'For sure' it was a poor ride  passed all those riders then crashed - a clear case of his ambition outweighing his talent.

Lorenzo

raised his hand. Why do people think this was the trigger for race direction to stop it? 

I reckon Race Direction saw the rain and stopped it. Simple. 
When rivers are running across the track lives are at risk. For goodness sake get a grip people!
How many of the conspiracy theorists on here have experienced tropical rain?

Poor Saturn ...

... and for some odd reason I was expecting better from you.

Look, this is how it works. A ride can be considered to be 'disappointing' if the rider finishes in a lower than anticipated position and scores fewer points than expected - that's Dovi's ride.

A ride can be considered to be 'poor' if the rider fails to finish at all and scores zero points in the process - that's Crutchlow's ride. Got it now?

A rider can be considered lucky if his bike hasn't been damaged in a crash and he is able to restart
