this is going way overboard... too much drama! what comes around goes around..... anyone remeber October 2006?

"Dani Pedrosa has made one of the biggest mistakes ever seen in modern motorcycle grand prix racing - smashing into team-mate Nicky Hayden early in the Portuguese Grand Prix and destroying the American's world championship lead." ooops!

desmoquak.
very true , but the difference is pedro learned from the silly move and learned to race at the limit with respect and common sense.
he has never made the mistake again.

If his elbow slider ripped off that wire, MM should count himself very very lucky and wake up! Just how close was he from getting tangled up in the back wheel of that bike! He's great to watch but l fear for him. He's never going to be a multiple world champion and still be racing at 34 at this rate.

re: "Honda have clearly fielded a machine with a fundamental flaw in that the sensor is too vulnerable"

you're being sarcastic right...? that sensor's likely been in that same position for more than 10 years and over a 1000 race starts across 5 identically equipped bikes. this is the first and only incident. that's not "flaw", that's "fluke". they could leave that sensor where it is and run problem free for another decade.

My opinion, if Jorge won the last two races it's because Marquez let Pedrosa run in 2nd for far too long, when it came time to stop playing, Jorge was gone. Not this time, Dani was very fast but Marquez was faster and he wasn't going to let Jorge fly over to the sunset this time.

This was going to happen sooner or later, any direction.
I really expected Pedrosa becoming a Juggernaut taking everything and everyone and maybe throwing Marquez out of the way, which in some way would have been different and actually exciting.
It's not fair for Dani, it's not fair for Marquez, and it's not fair for any of the other riders. This is racing!! not qualifying.

I can't believe this guy gets a pass by so many for dangerous and disrespectful racing, while Marco Simoncelli was universally ripped at every opportunity. I hope somebody does something before he kills a fellow racer. Ratthapark Wilairot was incredibly lucky as were Crutchlow and those corner workers, but the worst thing you could do at this point is put him behind the entire field to start a race.

At long last we get someone who wants to race a bike and some of you moan about it.

If he was to ride around in 4th place like some he would not be able to do wrong. But you would get a lot of reasons why he was in 4th place.

It racing it's dangerous.
