If everyone is treated equally then Rossi should have been excluded from Laguna Seca 2008 for forcing Stoner off track because he couldn't pass him fair and squire. Question: Was he disqualified?

Bautista you are not a talented pilot,and you will never be one for shure,but you are a really,trully liar.i invite everyone who has a motogp video pass to look again the video of the crash.specially at the 46,47,48,49 second.
Bautista did see Rossi clearly,even in his interview when explaining the accident with his hands(left for him,and right for Rossi)he shows that Rossi was in front of him.in the video Rossi was almost a full bike in front of him.where bautista is a danger,and should be punished by race direction is that he cut Rossi's line to stop rossi's overtake.bautista could stay in his line right behind iannone and chose to go on like this in the turn to avoid any crash.but he chose to change line and cut Rossi's(even with his hands he mimes it in motogp interview).his mouth says something but he is betrayed by his gesture.

Go on Youtube watch Rossi on board cam and you will see Rossi had no power off the line and then later he was still well in front of Bautista and then was tapped out.

Bautista is like Grosjean in F1, lateral vision and on top Bautista shoud know you cant win a race on the first lap, you can definitely lose one.

Rossi was knocked off and thanks that there were no injuries.
It was Bautistas fault 100%. But accidents happen in racing.

Vale will know where to come to get his excuse script sorted before the next race - right here on Crash.Net! How about an award for the best pre-race excuse?

The twisted way that both riders worked through the first three corners led to the accident. Race direction was correct. To blame either rider is disgraceful. Both are great riders. Bautista on a terrible chassis has to ride at 150% to place top 6 which he usually does. No matter what he does he can't get ahead. He beats Bradl in the championship last year yet gets a satellite bike. Remember, only a cheap brake check from a guy that can't even get Motogp points kept him from the 250 championship. Rossi was trying to make up places from a lousy start and was into the corner too hot. He had the inside line but it was doubtful he was going to make the normal racing line. Bautista was balked and had no intention of losing touch with the lead pack so powered hard into the corner. Both of them were going hard and collided. I'm sad for both of them.

Next race. The past has past.
