@whatters

so, Rossi, Edwards, numerous other riders...and even Julian Rider and Matthew Birt think it was a silly, unnecessary move...but you still dont think Marco is to blame?

Julian Ryder - "The issue is not riders making mistakes, it's leaving the other guy no room. Dani and Casey early on - v close but no drama..."

spot on i think.

I am so glad I got to go see GPs in the 80's and 90's. I feel bad for younger fans...in a few years motogp will be a shadow of its former self. Much respect for riders like Raney, Schwantz, Roberts Sr, Spencer, Doohan, Gardner, and Rossi. Yes, he belongs in that list.

Danni Ped' went in too hot and stood the bike up when he culd not make it, then he hit Marco. He broke his collar bone because he hit the kerb not because Marco cut him up! Blame the the temporary kerb for the broken collar bone.
Had Marco been a millisecond quicker Danni would and missed and gone straight on.

lombe - can we have your comment in English please, i believe the crux of your comment is Msrco is unable to handle a works bike, if so you are clueless s well as illiterate.

IF this was a random incident from Simoncelli, THEN it would just be an accident. Instead it's the culmination of a pattern of riding that is reckless and consistently has put others at risk. This time resulting in the injury of Dani Pedrosa. OF COURSE he is to blame.

Sic, it's never your fault when you keep saying "for me, I am correct"

Should have ridden side by side with Dani going into the corner as Dani was on the inside not chopping across in front of Dani and injure him!

Penalty was correct, should be banned for next race for being a menace on the track!
