The whole Sykes this is Mickey Mouse for a top level world championship. I get why he was reinstated, but the fact that you can blow a turn like that and not lose a place is bad. Plus coming back onto the track is dangerous as hell.
They need to find another track and let Monza go, and its rich history wil be just that history.

What Monza really has in its favor is that it produces awesome racing. Imola does the same. That is a huge quality in a track IMHO.

And as a rider, corners like the Parabolica leave me with grand fantasies. If a corner looks awesome on TV it is for certain 10 times more incredible in reality.

BTW I think Michael van der Mark was injured and couldn't restart the WSS race.

If anyone has not seen the final run of the WSS race, i recommend you do!
