A hugely frustrating race for Britain’s James Toseland, having started in 12th – he was adjudged to have jumped the start and subjected to a ride-through penalty; something that he clearly felt was a bad call, looking at the wagging finger as he rode down the pitlane.
He eventually finished 14th in a race dominated by home rider Casey Stoner.
