It is somewhat a valid question though - there they are in the very last lap, Vinales making a big error that should have left him out of contention and Rossi safe for the win, but in the end he didn't lose anything in the process. The same situation in F1 is often put this way: suppose there had been a wall there, he would have had to actually slow down and rejoin much further back.pokerman wrote:Vinales clearly gained nothing relative to Rossi so there would have been nothing to penalise.
He did nothing wrong, but making an error of the kind and not losing any time doing so doesn't seem fair either.
That being said I have nothing against Vinales, and I would love to see him become champion. So please don't take my opinion as the typical Valiban comment
