"Unfortunately Andrea hit my front wheel with his rear tyre"

I like Bautista but that's one of the best ones yet. Sad way to end a season.

Bautista will do himself no favours by trying to blame Dovi.
AB ran in the back of Dovi plain & simple and took three others out in the process.
Take a look at the video again AB - you were wholly to blame. Be a man, admit your mistake, and say sorry to those whose race you spoilt.

LL: Well, it was shown on camera that he DID go to Hayden's garage directly afterwards to say sorry, so it's unfair to implicitly accuse him of bad sportsmanship, he's always been more than fair throughout his career.

I don't really see why people try to put all the blame on him, it was just a race incident which unfortunately took out four riders, but luckily everyone is okay.
Dovi did move right in front of him and he did brake too late which in combination made for a first corner disaster in a packed field. Neither him nor Dovi is to blame for that in my opinion and starting some sort of vendetta like a few fans of the other crashed riders seem to be going for right now is blowing this whole thing WAY out of proportion. Race incident, s*** happens, on to the next GP.

Aside from that, hoping Suzuki actually do stay and finally get their act together with the 1000cc bike...

Despite all the rhetoric in the wake of Marc's accident it doesn't take long for the people on here to start abusing riders again does it?

Unfortunate racing incident,impossible and unneccessary to aportion blame, its not as if anyone intended that to happen just a sequence of events that culminated in a pile up. Pity some good riders with the potential to do well got taken out, just glad no-one got properly hurt.

yet another reminder in a list of 10,000 reminders that you don't go adding to the danger, when motogp itself is already dangerous enough. T1 and cold tires have always made for strange bedfellows.
