@Andrew Long

there is no point in Rossi moving to WSK, he has achieved so much and more in motobike racing, its an outstanding career, much to the disagreement of haters who like to bash any former champion in any sport when his winning ways come to an end.

when he hangs up the boots im pretty sure he will move to 4 wheels, weather it be F1 or Rally.. he will do so well which ever sport he decides.. and i and millions more wish him well.

Big shame but definately a racing incident - Rossi doesn't help himself by qualifying 5th to 8th every week - you're almost asking for stuff like this to happen eventually.

Sad state of affairs at the moment, guess we just have to get used to VR not being the 'god' he once was.

Also gutted for Marquez, did everything right until his crash, and would have made the championship very close. We've seen he's capable of long win-streaks in the second half of the year though so he'll be back and he's not out of it yet!

Every 10 yrs or so a new kid on the block turns up, once it was rossi but now its marchez, the begining of the end was the broken leg.
Racing incident, if it was anyone else we wouldnt be having this conversation.
Dany will never be a champ im afraid and lorenzo will only be at the top till marchez gets to grip with, then its game over, hes as fast as stoner but got talent. Yaba daba boo boo, bring it on.

its was alvaro if any of them is to blame. same thing happend to him last yr when stoner rammed him in same corner but no haters admit the stoner stupidity. if u say its vale taking different line then last yr it waz alvaro taking diff line and getting rammed by stoner.was it alvaro fault. NO....
if u saying vale to fault then balme pedro for the rossi making mistake in qatar in lap pedro was is complete different line inturn 1 which cause vale to go wide to avoid contact as he was having faster speed in that corner than pedro and pedro came to his line from inside .same thing balme pedro then for that...

@ terence.. The beginning of the end was the shoulder injury he sustained in a motocross accident after he had won the first race of 2010. The leg break was a result of the struggle after the injury which meant keeping up with Lorenzo was harder than before.

Funny few recognise or remember this fact in general, it's always the mugello leg break.

Billy Bob - he won't go to F1 he is too old already and has no F1 experience apart from driving a Ferrari round a test track now and again.

If not WSB it's retirement. The decision may not be his to make. And I am not taking anything away from his record. He needs to be judged on current form and the ride which could be re-allocated to someone more deserving.
