i feel sorry for Pedrossa he has no luck but if he held his line he would not have hit simmo hard racing it is but don't think simmo deserved a ride thru

Maybe DORNA should ban all overtaking manouevres, that way if would be a lot safer and no one would ever fall especially if, in the name of safety, they establish a speed limit of 100 kph.

They should never give him the ride through penalty. If, after the race, it was proven to be a dangerous move (which I doubt it) they could take away Simmo's points (but maintaining the points for everyone else).

Is there a ride through penalty as a punishment for a alleged dangerous move or they just came up with the idea on the spot???

And shouldn't they give a ride through penalty to Lorenzo?

It think the whole thing disgusting, even if I also think that Simmoncelli should get a hold of himself (although he is the most exciting rider to watch)!

Damn there are a lot of haters in here. Relax people i know that watching rossi start 9th and finish 3rd is your worse nightmare, but the season is long and this one was round #4 only.

Can't wait til super sic start harrasing the australian midget, is gonna be EPIC.

Simo had the corner. Pedrosa's back tire lifted on the wellknown bump into that corner. he then started to sit up and didn't remain on the racing line. Marco's move was pure racing and after watching Motorcycle Racing for over 45 years I think today was one of the worst for the sports history. DePu getting away without even a warning for a stupidly dangerous move in warmup. Lorenzo, after whining all week about Marco, does an overly aggresive pass which we all enjoyed as it is part of racing. Marco does a fair move on Pedrosa which looked bad at first viewing but is perfectly OK when you look at it from the different angles. How you could give him a penalty for that is beyond me. It will end up like F1 where everybody was scared to pass. We want racing, not a procession.

You have your opinion and I have mine. If Pedrosa would have held his line he would have been fine. He stood up mid corner and he was the one who clipped Marco.
EDIT by CRASH.NET! Keep it clean.
