The way I see it...that was all jlo's fault he crashed cause he went off the race(dry) line to pass a back marker which resulted in his loss then sudden regain of traction! Had he waited for a safer passing condition for the weather condition for example a straight away...he may have won the race. His flawed expectation that Ellison should go off the race(dry) line therefore putting his own self in danger was what lead him to try to overtake him in that corner and consequently to his wreck! My 2cents.

Sad how Lorenzo paid a big price for a backmarker overtake maneuver. Rememmber at the begining of the season we were wondering what kind of mishaps would occer when the backmarkers get lapped? Well it's safe to say Lorenzo wouldn't have gone down had Ellison not been there. With that said, Lorenzo could have waited a bit longer instead of rushing it. The commentators even said Lorenzo was trying to fix a problem that wasnt there. Ala Pedrosa behind him, but he was still too far back due to running off, yet Lorenzo just didn't know it.
Oh well, surprised this kind pf stuff didn't happen more often during the season.
