First off after the media frenzy over Simo' s riding style these events are to be expected! Marco is fast and aggressive rider Dani is fast and smooth. If you have more to risk than the rider chasing you be patient for the perfect moment to pass. For sure there would have been other opportunities to pass at the pace you carry. Marco has not show an ability to maintain steady fast pace without drama. Unfortunately for you the toll your body continues to take is closing the door on your championship hopes. Ride through penalty for Marco was ridiculous. Hopefully Pedro will make a speedy recovery to challenge Stoner for the championship. Sorry JLO

Jeez people just look @ the picture on the left, Dani is having his line taken what can he do? He cant go left he cant go right he cant go straight, all he can do is grab the brake harder which is probz what he did which (anyone that rides a bike knows) straightens the bike up putting him into Simo.

This has nothing at all to do with hating on simo, he's seems a decent, likeable fella and the championship is all the better for having him, but he needs to improve his race craft and think a little more before pulling these dangerous moves!!

So many riders have expressed concern about his riding because its potentially dangerous, and sadly his actions could have put an end to the best chance Dani might have of winning the championship. . .

its fine you lot on here saying it was just "racing", but if you were in Dani's position would you be so numb as to just shrug it off as a racing incident?

1 agrees. 2 disagree.
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!

Pretend Pedrosa was Rossi ... THEN see how you feel about Simoncelli's move.

If you can't see Simoncelli was at fault ... then you are either blind, or a complete idiot. OR both.

dani should've outbraked him and not allowed him to get in front. That way he could've given simo a good block pass. This incident need not have happened cause I think Simo would have passed him anyway without the rough stuff.

At least it removed these two from the race and allowed Rossi to get on the podium. That should at least bring a smile to his fans.

I feel the penalty was unfair, Pedrosa couldnt keep the line when braking hard, an unfortunate incident, there were other close events in the race.

Because of previous grievances they hit Simoncelli hard, I do hope Pedroasa recovers quickly.

imo simo has developed only the "speed" part of brain, and the others were left aside. He's having this problem with his aggressive riding style since the 250s and never ever something was his fault.

You'll never see fair play from this guy ever!
