Laverty had a big crash.
Can anyone tell me what exactly happened?

Lowes tried to pass Laverty, Laverty didnt expected Lowes on his right side so they touched. Did Lowes broke off the brake lever?
That bike went with atleast 200km/h straight into the wall. Massive impact.

Good thing Laverty jumped off. He must've pooped his leathersuit

Not sure what happened but it must of been with the brakes. Either a broken lever or busted line. Glad he jumped off and did not look to be hurt much.

the replay showed what looked like a front fender hanging off one side of the front wheel so there definitely contact and definitely a front brake malfunction

Sometimes when watching Leon in the race fighting with another rider it looks like hes holding back a bit.
For example: Last chicane Rea passes Melandri on the brakes, but in that same chicane Leon was beside Laverty and holds back twice.
Looks like Leon rather take safe way and secure points for MV Agusta in constructors championship than a chance of falling.

Lets hope Leon can secure P5 MAYBE P4 in Race 2. Melandri has his ups and downs not as stable as Davis/Rea/Sykes

Yeah right. He's riding what is basically a 20 year old bike for a team with a budget that wouldn't pay Ducati's hospitality bill and he's beating all but the fastest bikes. Remind me how many constructors points you get for a crash.
Leon performs regular miracles on that bike.
On the subject of the crash I think I'm about sick of the Lowes twins. They're a danger to themselves and everybody else and I think it's time they got a job in a cake shop or something.

Great to see the F4 closer to the front, a great result for Leon and the Reparto Corse Team.
Plus PJ is on Pole and Zaccone despite his Crash best ESP rider, well he was the only ESP rider in Q2.
Now if Leon or PJ would just be a little more competitive at the Starts and run to the first Corners.
Seams like they all fall back, loose the contact to the front runners, catch up with some lost places and run almost as fast as the front later in the race.
Oh well so far an awesome race weekend.
Chaz did really well in front of the home crowd.
Yeah looks like the front fender ripped off the brake line or so.
I'm glad that Laverty seams to be okay.
What position will Leon have on the Grid for Race 2?

Must be frustrating running at Imola in Supersport, delay first and two restarts.
Lets see how many laps WSSP will get together today.
Camier 3rd on the Grid!
