Why is there no mention of lorenzo pass on dovi. That was a worse pass cause he rode straight into dovi. The only difference is they were both lucky not to crash. J lo should think twice before sqealing to race control

F**k Simoncelli & Gresini, this is a sport where you must have ethics. If you want to win in a sport where u have to hurt others then this is not a sport anymore. i think everyone on the grid can push other rider and let him fall down, but what iam sure off is that only desperate riders can make such unsportman actions and simoncelli is one of them. Come on Simoncelli who will be your next victim in the next round!!!!

Anyone with any intelligence at all can see that Dani stood the bike up because he was going in too hot. MS was setting himself up for the next corner to have the inside line. Racing incident, but also Dani's fault for having to stand the bike up. Maybe seeing MS there scared him or something, but had he committed to the turn he would have had a 3rd place finish.

im no fan of simoncelli but i thought the penalty was harsh, he did lean on him and pretty much left dani with no where to go, but when you compare it to all the over incidents that happen each race did it deserve a pen? no.

as for the incident its self, it has to be noted that dani didnt have his left leg on the peg. i know this is a common(bad imo) habit of some moto gp riders. but facts are if u dont have all feet on the pegs u have less control if things go a miss. and thats exactly what happened. if it was dani's thought or not i believe he would of had more chance to control the situation if he his legs properly mounted on the machine.

like lorenzo had when rossi passed him in almost exactly the same situation a lap later.

In my opinion, Marco is getting far too much flak from other riders, Lorenzo's moan about Valencia last year is a joke, surely if he has watched the race back, he can plainly see that Marco was in no way at fault. Yes Marco is a hard rider, but this surely is what makes this sport enjoyable. Doohan in his early 500cc days was taking people out left right and centre (Lawson at Suzuka, Schwantz and Barros at Donington) yet there were never complaints made against him. Schwantz and Rainey were forever swapping paint and people loved it. We need more riders like Marco in Motogp or it's going to get very boring.

An unfortunate incident for both riders,Danni obviously came worse off due to the injury,SIM had a ride through and regardless of his opinions about blame he came in for the ride through(just like Biaggi always does ?????).Yes he is and can be an aggressive rider,but tell me a rider or sportsman that is not aggressive,is Rossi not known for very hard moves(Gibers incident)isnt the agression,drive and sheer balls what makes it exciting for all,Danni had a choice,not go for the line in such a dangerous place,SIM had a choice,lose the place and try again later neither made the right choice...race control made the right decision...get well soon Danni
