Watching the video,, it is clear that Casey received plenty of help to get going again. Yet it is for all concerned a shame that Casey was not able to restart and resume the race. After seeing this video, Casey needs to take his complaint to Honda as the track personnel really did all that could be expected of them.

re :acidraine, my words just say it like I see it.
Crutchlow and Hayden fan myself. I'd actually like to see Stoner do well on the Honda if you must know, and I've no time for idiots who boo'd him at Day of Champs at Donnington that year.

Just watch for good racing though, and there's no denying Rossi was a pillock when he could have won that race if he'd not pulled off that move.

Not convinced that he wasn't trying to pass....

Rossi fans & Stoner haters are blind to any evidence. The fact is Simoncelli said the exact same thing. If as reported Rossi kept his engine running,it makes sense he got going again pretty quick. Sim and Casey killed theirs and therefore needed a good old shove and bump. They just didn't get it. Why didn't more marshalls go to the stalled bike? The FIM needs to clarify what obligations marshalls have to assist the riders restart, IF ANY. Plenty of posters here that will know the FIM rules better than me. Do they have a remit beyond track safety?

Yes I agreen that Casey could have handled it a bit cooler with Rossi, he probably has extreamly high expectations of himself and was seething, more to the point, if Rossi wasn't so impatient we wouldn't be commenting on this topic.

the ducati seems to have a cut off switch that works when it wants to. Bayliss at silverstone and now Rossi at Jerez. This needs to be looked into as it can be an advantage, and it is also dangerous.

@Wiryo Saputro
"The cause of this incident was Rossi's fault, it is absolute. Do not divert attention to something else."

Of course the crash is Rossi's fault, he crashed by himself. But this article is about the actions of marshals.

"Sim and Casey killed theirs and therefore needed a good old shove and bump."

The marshals are there for safety reasons, they don't have to help riders to rejoin the race, normally they help riders to bump start the engine, but they don't need to.

Come on! You are going back to 2002 and in a different championship. Also read the previous comment, Motogp bikes don't have an automatic cut off. They cut the engine to stop it from being damaged in the gravel as they can only use 6 engines per year.
