It was a racing incident but one thing is for sure Rossi was not to blame.

The hatred on this site for Rossi & Stoner and the lack of respect for Dani is incredible. For the person who made the comment that Rossi even finishes behind the bridesmaid Pedrosa - what are you on about? Pedrosa have achieved everything in GP Classes except the Moto GP title, which if you watched Moto GP PROPERLY since Dani has raced will realise is down to his bad luck with injuries. Check his race wins and other stats on the Moto GP website and you will see how high he ranks.

Racing incident, hummmmmm. isn't Bautista the same guy that caused a pile up at the start of the 2011 Valencia race which also involved rossi getting taken out with 4 or 5 other riders and again in 2012 he took out Lorenzo at the start of a race.

this guy is a bit skidish at the start or races

Think vautisra should have been more aware of other riders so early on the first lap. Went the the corner apex to apex as if it was lap 10 and single file. Those in front and behind managed it ok.

Not sure it deserved any other penalty other than a quick word though.

he isnt making excuses people, hes talking facts. watch the onboard replay of his start, you can clearly hear his clutch slipping & also taking a couple of try's of getting 44th gear. do not lose faith he is still the man
