Yeah, that was some bs, he was so far ahead there was no way they would catch him.
He was even lapping faster than the 2nd and 3rd.
If i was him i wouldve just pulled into the pits ad quit the race (good thing im not him)

Guys, the penalty was NOT for gaining an advantage by cutting off the chicane!!! The penalty was for not re-entering the track between the white lines - the white lines are there for safety. The FIM takes safety very seriously. It was announced at the beginning of the weekend in a meeting in which Biaggi felt he was too good to attend, so sucks for him. Considering the penalty was based off a safety factory, I absolutely agree with it.

Maybe Im mis-understanding this. There were several other riders that went off roading during the race and received no penalty. Am I missing something? If it were for safety purposes why were no other riders forced to do a ride through as Max was?

There were white lines painted in the pavement, and the riders who cut the first chicane had to rejoin the track between those lines. Biaggi skipped the safety briefing in which the racers were informed of this rule, because he is just too good to be told what to do. And by the way, he was almost 0.5 of a second faster on the lap he missed chicane then on the one before, so he also took a time advantage for cutting it.

The penalty was fair and very well applied. Biaggi is very well knowned to be a sneaky and often dirty racer..
