Now, I don't believe it made any difference in this case (nothing could have saved him), but it could well make the difference between a tragedy and a bad situation in the future.
This same marshalling team failed to properly notify the Moto2 riders of dodgy track conditions in FP1, and may well have decided the title there.
WTF? Why is it that motogp is the pinnacle of this sport, and yet riders are subject to such amateurish behavior from such vital people as track marshals?
Isn't it time to have a fixed team of highly-skilled, highly-trained people who travel around with motogp? If the Clinica Mobile people are always the same (aren't they?), I see no reason why this shouldn't be the case with other emergency people...
Edit: I see that Tobes has pre-empted my outrage on facebook. He posted a link to the blog Two Wheels.
