It's a race incident, let's not make it too big. Everyone got out unhurt.
Good thing he didn't take any of the title contenders out.
De Angelis is doing way better than last year, crashwise.

I loved the bit when Nicky was pointing at De Angelis and was looking at Edwards at the same time then Nicky nodded his head at Edwards saying it De Angelis was't it and Edwards was just standing their struggling his shoulders like I don't no.

Unfortunately for Hayden, this crash will give more fodder to his legion of Haters.

Next week when this crash and lost points are forgotten, we'll have those wizard posters citing 'stats' without context.

The DNF's are indicated by .. - .. without any indication whether it was rider error like Rossi last week or in this case, not rider error like Hayden and Edwards getting popped by de Angelis.

So when the inevitable and tiring articles about James' ride is being questioned before the upcoming Imola race, we'll have the current standings quoted for comparison.

So yes, Toseland, Elias, and Vermeulen ... are ahead of Hayden in the overall standings. But are they really performing better?

In another article in Crash regarding WSBK, one poster was on about Spies not having won a WSBK Title and not even in the pts lead. Not in the pts lead?

So the Spies minimum 50 pts lost, without argument, are forgotten. Getting torpedoed by Fabrizio and running out of gas which gives Fabrizio his rather tainted victory.

I loved when they interviewed Edwards during the race in the pits, he wasn't so polite about the incident then!

he flat out said 'an Italian a**hole trying to be a hero' and ripped him a new one, the interviewer didn't quite know what to say and cut it short! hahahaha!

I felt sorry for De Angelis, home circuit, decent poll position and then does something like that. Was,nt intentional and i'm pretty sure he feels really bad about it. Just a racing incident which he will regret. Wont do his job prospects much good.

@ boo hoo hayden

Nope, at the end of the season, the time honoured system of collecting points is the fairest way to establish the season's rankings.

What I was attempting here was a preemptive comment regarding today's results and the inevitable nasty posts about Hayden. As soon as Hayden's name is in an article there are usually many negative posts, more so against him than any other racer out there as I'm sure you can agree? Right Mr boo hoo hayden?

I am also sure that within 2 days, it will be quoted that Kallio finished ahead of Hayden for 1 race without context of that finish. As in Hayden's mishap today was out of his control whereas Kallio's mishaps were all his doing.
