Lorenzo wants de Angelis warning.

Jorge Lorenzo may have survived contact during the second turn smash at Misano which eliminated Alex de Angelis, Colin Edwards and Nicky Hayden, but the 2009 MotoGP title contender was still 'very angry' at de Angelis for causing the accident.

Lorenzo, no stranger to aggressive moves early in his own career, believes the Sammarinese should be spoken to by Race Direction.

“I am very angry,” said Lorenzo, who went on to finish second in the race. “In the past I was like that, sometimes I did some crazy things. But when the organisers gave me some 'advice', I was more clever.

“I think now they have to do something with these riders, who are also the same ones who try to follow faster riders on Saturday during qualifying. It is very dangerous and I hope they do something,” stated the Fiat Yamaha rider.

de Angelis apologised for causing the accident, which marked his first DNF of the season.

I really can't understand why everybody attacks De Angelis. Already from the moment he slammed his leg over the RCV. In my opinion he has made a very good grow compared to 2008. Misano was his first DNF, scored a series of strong results lately and in 8th in de standings. Can anybody tell me what the reason would be for him to leave MotoGP???? He's a good rider. Not a world class rider like Rossi, Pedrosa, Stoner, Lorenzo etc. but very decent. In 2006/2007 he was the only competitor who could make a fist against Lorenzo/ Dovizioso (apart from Bautista and KTM rarely)

So people are completely missing the point, that it was a chain reaction crash? Lorenzo went wide and slow, edwards being the 'team' player he is, didn't wanna take lorenzo out, jumped on the breaks and left de angelis with no where to go.. As for hayden's reaction to the crash, well...maybe he'll give up taking the outside line thinking he'll get past everyone, it didn't work in germany and it didn't work here...ok he was unlucky because it was nothing to do with him...but all the blame doesn't lay with de angelis.
