It was just matter of time that someone got injured by Simoncellis stoupidity. They should give him atleast yellow card or something. Next time he will do something stupid ban him for few races. That should do it.

Unfortunately that dosent help poor Dani who broke his collarbone.

Im just hoping he learned something from that drive through penalty.

And for sure Casey was awesome. Rossi did solid job also but it was good to see that Dovi beat him again.

Darryl Beattie on 1HD in Australia said the ride through on Simoncelli was unwarranted and questioned why Pedrosa stood the bike up mid corner. He's an ex (very successful) 500cc racer, so his word is good enough for me.

Oh by the way, GO STONER!!!

I have no problem with some hard riding but Simo has a bad habit or riding hard and not giving his opposition any room to boot. The move on Pedrosa is a classic case in point, you can't just take someone else's line on the outside (after being outbraked) and expect there not be be severe contact. If he gave Pedrosa even an extra inch of space he still would of had him on the next turn anyway because it was a right hander.

Shame for Pedrosa could be another season wasted which is real shame.

Simo may not be getting the go fast parts in the future if he keeps doing that to factory HRC riders.

Good rides by the top 3. Love him or hate its always good to see Rossi up the front and having a go.

Before anyone blames Simo, who was infront when they entered the corner?. Who stood the bike up mid corner? Think about it. This is racing and that's why they get paid millions of dollars to do so. If that don't like it, go get a trade or a degree and sit behind a desk. Don't go racing especially with people that don't have eyes in the back of thier heads

Did any of you anti simo wonkers watch the race? If pedrosa had held his line instead of panicking and standing it up, he would not have caused the incident. Just heard Daryl Beatie say he is embarrassed to be associated with all the PC BS in Moto gp. Totally agree and am gutted for simo

"so what was the punishment for Rossi taking out Stoner, or Marquez on Redding, nothing,"

Exactly.

Marco was around Dani - he didn't T-bone into him. It wasn't anywhere near as malicious as those 2 incidents yet the "Golden Boys" of Rossi and Marquez got nothing.
