IMO Lorenzo's pass on Dovi was harder than Simo's on Dani. Dani isn't the best late braker in the championship, and many riders can pass on the outside under brakes. It isn't illegal!
From what I saw Simo didn't close the corner by coming in on the white line... there was space for Dani if he had kept his line! Thats Racing!

The big win for Rossi today was beating his old employer straight out! The podium was just a bonus!

a relentless demonstration of raw speed by casey. not particularly exciting but the culmination of weekend perfection on the honda. thought dani had him for a second, but he faded into the clutches of MS.
10 odd laps left, he's right behind DP and he pulls a-rush-of-blood-to-the-head move like that. totally unecessary, given his speed vs DP and further highlighted by the fact he could'nt have beaten CS today anyway. u have to wonder whether there's any thought processing beyond just pinning a throttle when the helmet is put on MS's head. thoroughly deserved IMO. and a warning needs to be dished out. u can't make a corner, and u take another rider out, it's the back of the grid the next race.
those that want fairing bashing should stick to tin-tops.

There's no way you guys watched the same race I did because that was clearly a dirty pass by Sic on Pedrosa. To be frank, I wanted Sic to win the race and Pedrosa to win the championship as I think they both deserve it. However, that bonehead move around the outside has me rethinking. He did the same thing to Ben Spies in world superbike so this guy has me really wondering if he thinks he is by himself on track. Not because you put a wheel in front of someone doesn't mean you're past them. Pedrosa was inside all day and had nowhere to go when Sic cut in front of him who could have waited until later to make that move because he was clearly faster. Now Dani has a broken shoulder and is out of another championship. Smh...

It was a natural self protecting move for Danny standing up his bike and Simo was about crushing him on his left side. If Danny has kept his line then it would be his left shoulder touching the ground first and his career may ended today
