“If a 40-year-old coming towards the end of his career wants an additional one place GP finish on his CV so badly, then he's welcome to it”- Paul Bird.

Paul Bird bringing up Rapp's age is equivalent to someone bringing up Bird's drug smuggling past.javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':-o')

Apparently Bird gets upset when a 1st time racer in the class beats his racer, and the bike they've had 8 races to develop.

I'd be pissed if after eight races I entered a bike that couldn't shift, or a rider that couldn't stay on the track. But instead of fixing your bike, or training your rider, you start bringing up irrelevant information like a rider's age, or mocking another team for expecting you to follow the rules, and then throwing a verbal temper tantrum.

Mr. Bird, next time you get spanked by an old Yankee, try and behave like a gentleman.

I expected more from a MotoGP team principle.
