OH SO MANY SHORT MEMORIES ! im not a Lorenzo fan by any stretch as he has played superbrad troughout his career but lets get it right here the threat of penalty point for dangerous riding without any hard and fast rules isn't going to scare any rider into thinking about the consequenses. .It all smacks of the governing body threatening to take its ball home if the riders don't listen to them.As for Pedrobot sitting on the fence when asked his opinion,how would he vote had the question arose after supersic put his Honda inside him at lemans when Danni then turned into simmo and fell off and broke his collarbone.Oh and by the way Lorenzo has campaigned against dangerous riding since he entered moto gp

yes its all about money and big business but ultimately its motorsport the emphasis is on the word sport .and if sportmansip is going to get left in the garage then the likes of marquez ,Honda and carmello had better be ready to accept the taste of his own medicine when other riders decide its time to serve a plate of revenge up

How can Capirossi be part of Race Direction, knowing the way he won 2 of his World Championships, specially the 98 one (vs Harada) in Argentina?

Mr. Lorenzo has had several incidents where he has pushed hard and pushed or bumped other riders. That is racing and he needs to remember what he has done he is NOT perfect.

Although I'm a Yamaha fan, I do believe that Lorenzo it's forcing it a bit on this topic. MM put a harsh move on him, but I don't think it was an illegal move, a bit to physical but we've seen lots of such moves on that last corner at Jerez so one should be aware when in front in the last lap. Though, I do believe that the race direction should have a talk with MM if this kind of moves repeats due to safety reasons, but only if they believe that MM tends to develop a pattern of such moves. I'd loved the almost similar move (not that harsh I reckon) that Rossi put on Gibernau on 2005 at the same corner, but we've seen that Rossi did not develop afterwards a tendency to be involved in physical and somewhat dangerous surpasses. What I do hope is that the MM - JLo incident will bring back the aggressive Lorenzo, because he needs to put up a stronger fight with the Hondas and, why not, with Rossi.
