This sport is becoming a joke. How does Zarco's move differ to Rossi v Jorge Motegi last year? Or Rossi v Sete back in Jerez? Or any number of Rossi overtakes for that matter? What will happen if Rossi does one of HIS moves on Stoner or Lorenzo in the coming races? Will race direction give him a penalty? They have made a rod for their own back with their Simoncelli decision. MotoGp will soon become the Stoner, Pedrosa, Jorge TT races.

Yeah i agree, Terol left the door open and Zarco made sure he got himself in a position where he wasn't going to be beaten. A little hard but nobody hurt and would have been good for the title race.
The team/rider and circuit are all Spanish...not that they are biased lol

Since when has overtaking on the last corner been seen as illegal......oh i know, when you're a french rider doing it to a spanish rider riding for a spanish team at the spanish round of the motogp championship run by a spanish company. It sucks!!
