What a joke. Permier class motor racing is just a laughing stock these days. Maybe Simoncelli was to blame, maybe he wasn't. It should have been investigated AFTER the race. Where was Rossie's penalty in Jerez? Between this and Stoner getting fined while DePuniet got away with no penalty despite a dangerous move it makes MotoGP look like it's being run by muppets
