Australia/ Phillip Island/ MotoGP

What a strange race! Tyre changes had to happen because Bridgestone could not guarantee the safety of their tyres across a whole race. The race was ultimately shortened to 19 laps and a compulsory tyre change was issued to all riders. Marquez somehow got this wrong, and came in too late, and was disqualified! You could not write this script. There are now 19 points separating Lorenzo and Marquez- the title is very much up for grabs!
