The race itself was incredible!!! So happy for the guys on the podium. I was wishing they could all win.

The incident with Rossi is being blown out of proportion because of all the kak & drama from the past.

Rossi DID leave a very slight gap, and he was on some more damp tarmac. Marquez took the chance at the gap (All racers do that.) and it went pear shaped.

But I agree, he should rather have waited and passed the mobile chicane a little later.

All the theatrics and kak in the press is, is exactly just that. Kak, drama & hype to get the fanboys at each others' throats.
Rich coming from you, but then you are a MM fanbitch ---- the point you keep missing is he bumped 6 different over the course of the weekend, starting on Friday in FP1. He should have been black flagged, not because he is a Spanish knobb ( unlike George, he is a Spanish dokeypoes ) BUT because his grid antics broke all the rules, ignored an official and then it all went downhill from there.
BUT then being a MM fanbitch you will blame every rider on the track, starting with Rossi, lame and tired.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Like I said, I enjoyed the actual race more than buying into all the Days of our Lives bullshit.

The race was epic.

Marquez rides over his head (when it comes to passing) all the time and he needs to reign it in - wether you are a fan or not he does it too often and itís unsafe.

Racing is racing but there are still parameters that you have to work in


Maybe they need a dakar style sentinel to warn when he is on the charge

Part of the eloquence of a proper champ is in how he treats his opponents.

Yes you can get in front by tripping the guy in front of you, but...

Marc Marques will reign himself in through injury, it is quite unlikely that he'll get away with this sort of hooliganism for too long.

I must admit, grudgingly, that there is something very exotic about MM, a guy who will throw everything into the works to try and win.

Isn't gentle circulation around a course in a neat group just a tad close to golf? :pot: :peepwall:

MM rode like a douche and he must start at the back of the pack at the next race.  6 different riders over one weekend FFS!

great racing , but far too many " illegal" moves , started by race direction , the grid should not have been allowed to "reset" they should have started with their choice of tyres , and then came in for a tyre change after the race had started . thats racing ... making choices BEFORE the official grid line up . MM should have been disqualified at the start for ignoring marshal instruction to return to pits , and then riding AGAINST the race direction after grid set up .
just wanna have fun , and ride ... and ....... ride

He is a tad suicidal it seems... quite safe if he leads but if he has to start from anywhere less than the first row he is like a bull in a china shop.
Quite frankly his number is comming up soon, I just hope he does not kill a fellow participant. :sip:

VR bitching about MMs attitude in coming to apologize, with team mates and cameras in tow, is a bit hypocritical. I recall VR taking out Casey Stoner a few years ago. Very similar incident, actually. VR appeared to misjudge a pass, and the result was that he ended Stoner's race, but carried on with no consequence. After the race VR arrived, with cameramen in tow, to apologize for the error. Stoner was NOT amused, and said so.
Seems like this incident was very similar, except VR was on the receiving end.

I still think MM should have been black-flagged, at the start, then after the first incident again, and the second, and the one after that.....

What I love about this is how Rossi and his fans conveniently forget what an arrogant bully Rossi was when he was MMs age he was also fearless example his comment after he pushed Giberneau off the track was something to the effect (now he will not challenge me for a world championship again) both riding Hondas at the time. He made sure people were scared of him. He is a great rider still to this day but that fearless edge that comes with youth does go as you get older. MM just needs to calm down a bit but cannot afford to lose that Edge the other riders must Know if you are going to challenge him beware the same Tactic Rossi used. Max Biaggi used to bleat about Rossi like Rossi is bleatimg about MM.

By this emotional outburst, I assume you are a Rossi supporter?


Interesting about the grid setup, I think it can be challenged.  Everyone was suppose to start from the pits, except Miller. They decided it was to dangerous, They had to start from on track and they basically went to a handicapped system. Is this now the new official grid? What determined the starting order? BTW, no one could get killed, since the red flag was still up.

WTF blamed Rossi?

Who are the six he bumped?

Well no, we remember.  We are wondering why stories 13 years old is important though.  Did nobody, but Rossi learn anything in the 13 years?

No, the grid issue was correct.  After the chaos in 2015 at Sachsenring, the rules were adapted to how they handled it on Sunday. 

The grid remained the same, except that it was moved four rows back.

It was a harsh but can you recall Rossi's move on Gibenau on the last lap ? This is Moto GP, Without these MF's it would be boring.
I agree it would be boring. It certainly is exciting watching MM ride like a taxi driver.  :P

But to endanger the other rider's lives? :-\ That's not even in the spirit is the sport. He deserves a harsher punishment than a mere 30 seconds. >:D

Anyway, roll on americas! Let's see what MM is up to in a week!  :biggrin:

Well done to CC, and the rest. Nice open championship at this stage.

Bumping into someone at 80km/h where he basically dropped the bike is wet grass is hardly putting riders lives at risk

You would swear its a soccer game. Rossi fans have become nothing more than wet blankets.. If Marquez is coming up behind you 0.3, 0.4, 0.6 seconds a lap quicker then move out the way sunshine... world champ is coming through.

Before you get all figity, think about how Rossi kicked MM off his bike, these okes are the best in the world, and the best in the world know how to ride and race, Booth Rossi and MM know how to win championships, Rossi knew MM was coming up and coming up fast.. Yes he had the line and I don't agree with how MM tried to find a space but im not a world champ, he is.

2 points 1) nobody knew about MM bumping okes on the weekend until the crybaby Rossi mentioned it in the interview

2.. did Rossi complain about MM during practise? did anyone? was any action taken? was he warned?

no, why? because its called racing and thats what happens.. I bet you that it will all get reviewed and nothing will happen because its deemed to be within the parameters of racing.

If i'm wrong then MM will be banned from the next race. Not that it matters, he will still win the championship
