Moto GP, what did I just see?

Watching Simoncelli and Dovisioso duke it out. Marco attacks on the brakes into a turn, camera shot is of both bikes head on. I can see Marco downshift 4 gears with his foot, Dovi's foot is absolutely still. Both are on Hondas and I know the factory boys have a new gear box that doesn't require ingnition interruption to shift but did I just see a full-auto in action? I watched the rest of the race between them, never saw Dovi's left foot move.
