Any official word on what went wrong w Lorenzo's bike today? He said yesterday that the chain issue was some kind of inherent design defect. Kind of hard to believe considering how reliable the Hondas have been.

It overheated because it wasn't moving fast enough.

In the race as well
Not sure how to put this, but are the teams being sneaky, Vinales pit board was not right the 1st time, so he drops like a stone using the long laps twice, then its corrected to say its a ride through, if that had been me I'd be looking for the bloke who wants to wear his face on the back of his head.
Then it goes per shaped for Lorenzo with another technical problem, okay the guys injured but it still smells.

Thing is until this season "penalty" has only ever meant ride through. It's the first time it's happened like this and will be a lesson to all teams. Gotta say, they should have also been relaying via dashboard message. Also, after his first 'long lap'. Team should have registered, if they were aware.

MM's fall was a result of Dorna having hired an infamous Swiss nano-neurologist who spiked his energy drink with the latest in nano tech bots that were perfectly timed to grow in his brain, which on cue crawled out his ear and forced his throttle hand to lose control just long enough to make him crash, because Carmello wants to keep things interesting, or at least that's what he believes. In fact he's been brain-washed to think this by Italian Illuminatii using cellular technology gleaned from ancient Druid texts kept hidden from view in a secret library underneath the Vatican restroom.

Cal fell because . . . well, he's Cal.

if they are going to have a penalty lane, then why still have ride through pit penalties as well? they need one way to penalize the riders.
