Suzuka 8 Hour Spoiler

Amazing finish.
Donít understand the result. The commentators are trying to understand the result.
Red flag with 2 minutes to go, but they donít go back one lap it would seem.

Suzuki shit itself all over the wet track, Kawasaki goes down from the lead and they instantly red flag the race, so Yamaha gets their 5th win in a row.

That dude on the Suzuki is a retard though.
I dont care if I sound insane or disrespectful.

He enters turn 1 sees his engine blow up and keeps rolling out on the race line for 4 corners.

Usually its the results get picked from 1 lap before red flag gets waved. So I dont understand why Yamaha won.
Some say it has to do with Rea not returning back to parc ferme in time????

Anyway, the thing I find funny is (and these people will never learn it)
NEVER celebrate your victory in a situation that is uncertain.

*And never celebrate to soon.
I remember Toyota celebrating Le Mans 20 minutes before end. I said to my father: Never celebrate till it is confirmed.
Last lap of 24 hour race the toyota breaks down.
Suzuki today lost their championship in 2nd to last lap. Though they werent celebrating it early.
But just shows to NEVER celebrate early.

Yep, this is the latest, but now Yamaha could appeal the decision I think.

I am still trying to understand what the race control was thinking in awarding the race to Yamaha in the first place. It simply defies all convention. The root cause of the red flag was oil on a wet track, caused by the Suzuki. To even consider that Rea caused the red flag is ludicrous.
