So, what about Lorenzo's pass on Dovi?
Should Stoner even have been on the grid after punching a rider on track as he went past - regardless of what he thought the rider did?
The ride through was inevitable after Lorenzo, Stoner et al officially complained about him this morning.
I will probably give up watching if anything other than passing with a 6 foot margin is penalised.

Oi, Stoner... racing is what was happening down the rest of the field. What you ought to do is go off and do time trials... then you can be all on your own on the track, just how you like it. That way you wont have anyone else getting in your way.

Even when he wins by a country mile he was still moaning about his clutch on the start line!

Remind me... why do so many people think he's a boring, moaning old woman?

People say Dani stood the bike up, but that was only AFTER sic closed the door and dani's front wheel touched sic's leathers..... Def sic fault for closing the door with pedrosa no where to go .

Guys, open your damn eyes, that could cure your lack of understanding. Dani slowed down when he noticed Simoncellis stupid maneuver. He stood the bike up as soon as he was able to see Simoncelli - and you can only close the door when you are past someone else and this italian ***** was NOT. He was next to Dani when Dani set the brake!

I'm not a Stoner fan, I find his antics and attitude to be very unsporting and unproffessional, but my goodness when everything falls into place he can ride a bike! A good win for the lad well done.

"Rossi only got the podium because of the Sic/Pedrosa crash"

Rossi got the podium because he rode a great race overtaking Crutchlow,Spies,Edwards and

.......wait for it........LORENZO

"Rossi only got the podium because of the Sic/Pedrosa crash"

.......wait for it........LORENZO, the reign world champion on a much faster yamaha with a cooler head but somehow dive too deep in a corner.. (maybe he did it on purpose so that no one can blame him for not get back on rossi/dovi, in which the fact is, he can't get back on Rossi today no matter what circumstances it is)

That is the second time this season that Rossi has lost out in a battle with Dovi. I am sure the legions of Rossi fans that infest this forum have been harping on for years about Rossi's master race-craft and how he always wins the close battles. Doesn't look that way anymore does it? Still, I am happy he beat Lorenzo. It makes up a bit for the points he denied Stoner in Jerez.

What is with these complaints about stoner being a boring racer because he wins by too much.. that is too funny. It is not his fault if everyone else is too slow to keep up.

Yes, it was indeed the 2nd time this year that Rossi
lost out to Dovi. All credit to Andrea. He is
improving all the time I think and is seriously
competitive.

So Dovi is automatically a better rider now than
Rossi after 2 races ? Amazing how Rossi was world
champ before Lorenzo but now people suddenly think
he is a crap rider.
