Here we go with Leguna 08 again. Casey's team wanted to put in a protest for two illegal and dangerous moves by Rossi. Stoner vetoed the protest. Post race he simply stated some of the moves were a bit dodgy and he was not comfortable with them. Rossi himself has admitted in many interviews that he was out of control at the Cork Screw and anybody who watches the replay can see he leaves the track. Another pass later in the race also resulted in him leaving the track. Rossi had to ride the bike at 110% to keep up with Stoner and there was not another rider capable of doing what he did that day. But Stoner's comments were fair and every other rider would have said similar. The Cork Screw incident could have ended up as one of the worst MotoGP crashes in years.
