Fair is fair.
So if Rossi is 9 time WC, we should salute Capirossi when he leaves the sport as 3 times WC (Stoner only 2WC).

Ciao Capirossi and good luck.

Enrico (only no WC).

Fair is fair. We should respect all MotoGP riders whether we like them or not. Rather than trying to belittle the achievements of the ones we don't like so much at every opportunity.

Loris seems otherwise nice bloke and was fast and stuff, but I'll always remember how he in the last race in the year 199X bumped my man Harada off the track and went to win the WC and deprived one from Harada. That was pathetic I'm afraid. So it's very fitting honda remembers him.. maybe this is the bike he did it with :-D

It was 1998 on a 250 and it was blatant cheating. Dorna disqualified Capirossi then lost their bottle and reinstated him because Harada, left picking himself up in the gravel trap, still wouldn't have won the title (it seemed to take them a few minutes to work this out). Really bad behaviour blotting an otherwise very impressive career.

Good Move by Honda - Nice to see Loris getting some appreciation amidst Marco's weekend !!

21 years ago - Jeez - seems like an eternity !!

Wonder how many of the current crop will span a career like that - all, I hope !!
