Penalty for endangering other riders

Without starting a riot, I can think of one Italian rider that will need to change his riding style, and show some respect to his fellow riders, otherwise the penalty system will see him finish where he has in the last 2 years...nowhere.

dorna just dont know when to say when, they will keep asking for more and more control in order to make the spectacle appropriate for the tube.

The best thing the fans can do is mock Dorna for treating MotoGP's fans like a bunch of degenerates.

Hopefully Mav doesnt have to worry about this slowing down his game, hes ready to take the championship next year, and aint nobody gonna touch him unless they get MM treatment.

there are some clash riders through hystory and people in general use to defend him because they are top riders... is funny see how the same person flow between defend or critic him depends of who... but come on and be sincerely, in allmost many cases everyone can see if an incident deserve or not a penalty,
if marshals be sincerely and get over politics, would be awesome

i hope so, and good races 2013 for everyone

@ RSMiick....
So allowing teams/factories to spend vast amounts of money developing racebikes to a set of rules only to have them change after 12 months, or at a few weeks notice in the case of the revised weight limit this season s a good thing? That saves loads of money? If there was certainty/stabilty Suzuki wouldn't still be edging about coming back in but what they're looking at is a moving target..and what about the money invested in the grid fillers that are CRT, if a deal is done for factories to supply prototype engines or complete bikes that will all be down the toilet.
Superbike has 6 manufacturers on the grid with others such as KTM on the verge of joining, the racing is better than Motogp, the decline in spectators is to do with the economy & poor marketing as much as anything.

There was one rider who verbally attacked and humliated the marshals last year. Too bad he's retired cos Im sure this rule was made because of his stupid behaviour.
