It would be close otherwise, but Arch on the backfoot through the track and he's not looking like he can take Lamb
Local hero Yoshi is up... he was out in the Round of 8 due to over G last year so he won't want to repeat history
RIGHT ON THE MARK at 200kts and Yoshi is FOCUSED. He just needs to keep calm and collected and keep that pace up and challenge Dolderer for the Final 4 place.
THE JAPANESE FANS ARE ON THEIR FEET!
A fantastic and precise performance from Yoshi, Dolderer will have his work cut out but he's got to keep it completely clean and error-free. There's just no margin for mistakes now.
And Dolderer is through at 199.77kts - a near perfect start for Dolderer and he's not going to hold back. He wants another race win.
And the first split is in the green! Dolderer is 0.296s faster than Yoshi in the first part of the track
He's gaining time in that vertical turn but NO! NO! IT'S OVER FOR DOLDERER! THE CALL TO KNOCK IT OFF COMES AND HE'S EXCEEDED MAXIMUM G!
DOLDERER HAS PUSHED TOO HARD AND IS OUT
DNF FOR DOLDERER! MUROYA PROGRESSES TO THE FINAL 4!
Dolderer was on course for a heat win but it's as much about precision as pace in the racetrack
Tears already from Muroya's father there...
