"We made our position clear. You don't do this; especially considering the situation in the championship."

Kurosaki
It is all about next year.
As you say Yamaha could have said nothing but chose to take the public line that Rossi - next year the enemy - is too aggressive.
What has been a virtue when it worked for Yamaha is now something to be countered. Perceptions of events need to be controlled and such public statements are a way of doing this.
If there is similar racing next year involving a Yamaha and Rossi (we the spectators can but hope) the line will come out again stronger.

I wonder if Lorenzo is expecting Spies to roll over for him in 2011?, if so he is in for a very rude surprise as I have never seen Ben take prisoners. I wonder if 'Jessie Girl' Jarvis will tell him off via a third party. His parents really shouldn't have given him a girls name because he is behaving like one! I am not that bothered if Rossi fails at Ducati next year but I'm looking forward hugely to Ben kicking the cowardly weasels **** all year long! Message to Troll, grow up you plank!!

Pathetic.

Maybe they should talk to Lorenzo and ask him why he is starting to fight with his team mate instead of cruising points to manufactures championship?

He should know that Valentino is not Santa Claus and he's not used to give pososions for free, especcialy when he doesn't need points.

That's the saddest words I've ever heard from Yamaha... really, I've lost the faith.

You never said this with another rider before (Sete, Biagi, Stoner), at first Rossi already said that he doesn't like Lorenzo as his team mate and you still brought him in. What did you expected? of Course he will fight like a dog if it must, he was a hard racer before... and now he was wrong because of that?

Yamaha STFU!!!! I'm disappointed .... Glad he's moving to Ducati

SO, we're in a race...no we're not...yes we are!
Guess who's going to be given a slow bike for the rest of the season then....Let's keep the 'new' golden boy happy at all costs.

this is absolutley ridiculous!!!.. Its called racing.. at the end of the day if it wasnt for Valentino doing that yesterday it would have been a boring race ! A lot of these riders complain about races being not competative or agressive enough but when someone tries to pass someone which is more risky then a normal pass they class it as '' too agressive'' !!..

Whether ur a Rossi fan or not, the camera angle I saw the incident from (Lorenzo's onboard camera) shows Rossi on the inside line and Lorenzo leaning on Rossi. The last four laps were the most exciting of the race. Yamaha shut up and enjoy all the coverage you got. *****s!!!

CHRIS AND RICK. you both seem to ingnore one very inportant point, Lorenzo chose to make a fight of it when it would have been more prudent to have come in an easy and untroubled 4th. He obviously wished to make a point that he, with a weaker engine, could take on and beat Rossi. Do you think a man like Rossi would just sit back and let it happen? come on guys it's racing not crown green bowls and if thats the sort of racing you would like to see in the future, good luck to you! Why do you think F! drivers so enjoyed watching Moto GP a few years ago?, because it was no holds barred, balls out racing, no quarter asked and none given, Christ it was exciting and you want it sanitized?

Not to sound like some of the more deranged Rossi fangirls (i.e. all of them), but I have to side with Rossi on this. I don't care who loses out because of it.

Would be helpful if his little fanclub would remember the cry Rossi had to Biaggi about a certain incident back in '01 (you nearly killed me waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa). But i guess cos it's "Rossi", it's okay.

Anyway well done to Rossi for showing us some quality GP action. Hope to see lots more.

Not a smart move by Yamaha by giving out this statement when nothing went wrong after all.

Statements like these are only understandable when either driver would have crashed.

We saw a good fight, JL is about to seal his WC title and Rossi ended on podium which is all he is aiming for. Yamaha knows all this but nonetheless reacts childish imo.
