I doubt Zarco could have taken second without the penalty, as his tires were going really bad at the end.  That said, if he'd lost a spot or two becasue of the bullshit penalty it would have been a travesty.

On the plus side, he hit that outside line with such style and grace that it really just showed off how talented the guy really is.

Oh and yes. I ran over to Winchester to grab my monthly allocation of Padron cigars. A tad warm in town.

 :withstupid:  it looked like a dumbass move on Pol’s part to me, and yeah, I would have been seeing red if I was in his position because it looked like Zarco was squeezing inside, but then it’s a race.

I don’t know the rules, so my opinion don’t mean squat either. 

Sure has been an exciting season to watch.

LOL- with the rise down there we ended up going to Colorado- decided about 2 days before we left.  4 days in Colorado Springs, 2 days in Fort Collins.  Hiked, White Water Rafted, did the sights.  It was amazing.

Crafar changed his mind and apologized to Zarco after reviewing helicopter video...

I could imagine a former racer might have a different opinion than race direction, after both have scrutinized all the replays.

When I saw it live, I thought Zarco got inside and Pol shouldn't have cut back in and must not have seen Zarco there (unless he was seeing a little red). After seeing replays many times, my opinion hasn't changed. Looked similar to most block passes with plenty of overlap. However, I don't know the details of the rules so my opinion means squat.   ;D

I'll probably get to read a lot of articles with more technical details of the rules before the fun starts again next Friday.

Pol Espargaro is the only person I've seen who thinks Zarco is to blame for that incident. Everyone from Jeremy McWilliams to Casey Stoner tweeted that it was a travesty that Zarco was penalized. Zarco was just holding a tight line. Espargaro ran wide and then came back into him.
