Bad design of the sensor/wire, and bad programming of ECU in case of sensor malfunction.
DP had surely done his part by crashing @ Sachsenring, but despite that he still had a good shot at the title, until HRC effectively screwed him. It was a bizarre incident, yes, but it's the factory's job to make sure something as stupid as this doesn't happen. Remember, Tomizawa and Jones were killed, when they suddenly went down in front of others, who could not avoid hitting them. It's really no joke, when somebody suddenly highsides in the middle of the race. I hope we are done with crashes as avoidable as this one.
edit. AND some of their engineers had warned about the possibility of this way back, but they did nothing.
