and once again the haters blaming Rossi for pushing MM off track at the corkscrew,
Rossi had the inside line, MM was late on the brakes, Rossi tried to hold his line and stay infront, MM would of ran it wide no matter what, was a risky move from him, he could of easily been on the ground if they hadent removed all the gravel there, he could of passes Rossi anywhere else but chose to do it there.

as for Rossi's true feelings, we are seeing them every interview. he knows he's not as fast as the front guys, he says that almsot every time, but he keeps trying and pushing to get his best result, he's having fun.
you guys will be saying this about MM when he gets older and starts losing to younger guys. thats when you all will turn on him and bag him.

Hating's got nothing to do with it. Rossi deliberately ran Marquez off the track to the point where he ran himself off the track in the process.

Rossi may (?) have been able to take the corner but with Marquez on the outside Rossi sure didn't make much of an effort. Marquez had nowhere to go except off the track, but after watching highlight's of Rossi's greatest passes, he probably was expecting to get a "gentle nudge" from the Doctor if he tried it and the Doctor didn't disappoint.

Haters make me laugh...

VR passes CS on the outside = VR fault
MM passes VR on the outside = VR fault

The 2 constants here are that its VR fault (obviously...) and VR is smiling and having fun. MM only issue with the moment was that it wasnt as good as the 08 moment (by his statement)...so not sure why the issue from posters who arent necessarily MM fans but definate VR haters (doh...).

As for VR's feelings about being beaten into the pavement by a rookie....I gues he feels the same as the other 20+ blokes including Jlo & DP.

Lets not forget in a hurry that VR hasnt waved his finger in anger or rejected a handshake out of an offended sense of invinsability....the cracks have already shown this year and they are not from VR!

After 2 years on Ducati, VR must feel like a winner every week he gets to go around on the M1 . . . I would think?

Is the accompanying photoshopped? I don't think so. MM was ahead of VR before the Tissot gantry, Rossi released the brakes and forced him wide.
Sure he was on the inside but his own dodgy move to force MM into a mistake (or worse a crash!) had both wheels of his Yamaha off the track.
They were hardly racing for the last lap win at that stage of the race, so very much a desperation move from a clearly slower rider overstepping the 'spirit' of racing.
Big difference Dave, VR forced MM wide, VR did it all by himself in 2008. The footage is very easy to find if you care to look for yourself.

I love the fact that because Rossi is smiling and having fun he is absolved of any wrongdoing. :)

Does he really feel the same as the 20 other riders, really? So he should feel the same as a rider on a CRT?

Lets get one thing straight, if you have achieved all that can be achieved, it stands to reason that you will be more relaxed in your twilight years. common sense, yea?

@ Burro,

A good example of what I'm talking about regarding haters, not fans of the sport...

lets take a move that neither MM, his crew or race dirrection are worried about and turn it into...

"a desperation move from a clearly slower rider overstepping the 'spirit' of racing".

I looked through past posts and found no such phrase to describe stoners pass on bautista last year, or stoner slapping Randy in practice at 100+ clicks.

Or @ Shane...is this simply because being faster absolves you of all your wrong doings?

PS - @Burro - butter your own bread:)

I am new to this great site and Moto Gp but I am a big fan of Rossi. I think it ironic that the famous Rossi pass reminds me of the great Zanardi pass in the exact location and the fact that both Vale and Zanardi are wonderful italian pilotes makes me smile. Marquez has learned from the best.
