Absolutely bs.
1) Rossi's both wheels was out of track and then he goes to Stoner racing line forcing him very wide. If you ask me, race direction should gave him at least "go back to previous position"

2) After that Rossi brake check Stroner in turn 11 which is not illegal, but is desparete unsporting move, thats why Stoner was so mad about him.

He said we said she said......blah blah blah........Laguna 2008 was a cracking race for what racing fans want. Close harsh never definate until the end and 2 riders at the limit. If VR uses that as inspiration, good on him. If CS uses as inspiration into turn 6 in a V8, good on him too. The facts are these, it will take a very well sorted M1 to beat Crutchy at the moment. Not because Im a fan as tbh Im not but he is riding the wheels of it. Personally I see MM PD and JL on the podium just because they are the very best

He did go back to previous position and that's exactly why it wasn't illegal and he why he wasn't penalized.

Again, what a bs you are talking. After corkscrew move Rossi never back to previous position, it was in lap 14.

Paolo Ciabatti stated his viewpoint very clearly: "If I was in the place of Race Direction at Laguna Seca in 2008, I would have given Rossi a ride through."
