Not to me, i remenber at Le Mans, years ago, going to a talk to a mechanic guy that i know in the pitstop (during EWC race) and they were talking about that and how a "kind of spring" could pushed the pads back but how it will bother them when changing disk or pads during pitstops.
So, it never happened to me personnaly but i know that people are trying to reduce that effect, so it exists.

And when i saw the video tonight on Eurosport, i thought about it and when De Puniet gave this explanation, i found that correct because it happens.

I still think that if Ducati has answered with a "no comment", there may be something else behind.

Do you think they are "hidding" a sort of mechanical issue around the brake/front tyre ?

Most of the pilot talks about this "little" bump right when taking the brakes so it could be a pure physical issue, mass transfert at this exact point, i don't know but hey, i remenber Nakano rear tyre explosion or MM licking the wall, this end of this long strait is a piece of bravery before entering San Donato.

Had he not been unconscious he surely would have broken a number of bones.


How/Why?? Genuine question.


The natural tendency is to try to control one's body during a crash.

Because when you´re concious you try to tuck or harden your muscles, as he was  unconscious he couldnt react, tuck or harden any muscles, hence he ragdolls brutally and dissipates impact energy in a better way.

I'd say there's at least a chance.

speedfr

Yes but Jorge didn't have much choice too... it's either HRC or nothing almost.
