It is pretty immature and childish of Pol to try and blame his crash on Tito, and the fact Sito disagrees with Pol assessment shows this. Pol crashed because he made the same mistake as Tito at exactly the same time, pure and simple. He didn't crash BECAUSE of Tito. Pol is a fast rider, but he gets easily flustered and upset when things don't go his way. He has a bit of growing up to do. Marquez despite being 2 years younger than Pol is somewhat more mature personality than Pol

In Basic terms.. as far as pol is concerned this was supposed to be his party this year , his coronation to the ultimate class of Moto GP.
Sorry Poll reality check time , other riders around you want to kick your behind boyo! its your fault you crashed you can bleat all you want but the best guy won "Redding" if you took another 8 kilo on and equalled the weight with Scott you would not get anywhere near him as he's total class , modest , cool and in the zone !!

He has some growing up to do....if you watch him he's prone to tantrums if things aren't going is way and he's currently not perform to the level that was expected of him this season. It was thought that he would walk the championship this year based on the assumption that he was the only consistent challenger to Marquez last year, and maybe he believed his own hype so now that he's being elipsed by his team-mate + others he can't handle it. I wonder if Yamaha might be having second thoughts? He doesn't look ready for the pressure of Motogp yet if he can't deal with it in Moto2.

What a whiny little bitch Pol is and to blame his crash on someone who didn't even come into contact with and was even in front of him at the time shows a truely unlikable character

If this is what he's like when the going gets a little tough for him he may find MotoGP teams aren't so quick to want his signature on a contract.

Bit off topic but redding was smoking hot on sunday. didnt put a foot wrong. Iloved his post race interview comment on cals podium, scott declared something like 'cal seemed a little loose kn the bike, maybe it's his style...' hopper just smiled and lapped it up. i had a right laugh. i know it was wet but two great results and banter also.
Cant wait for scott to get to moto gp.

Wait wait....did Pol really say that you have to follow your oppositions race line during a race....? I understand that you usually do that sort of thing while trying to chase someone down...but is he honestly blaming his crash on his teammate for going too fast..? What a complete *****....he was just doing what Tito was doing...thats his fault not Tito's, I feel bad for Rabat for having to be teammates with that idiot.

i gotta agree with pol about one thing, in those condition, that early in the race you are better off following the line the guy in front of you takes. especially if that guy is the title leader. if he falls, so do you and you both take 0 points but that's better than you taking a different line than him, risking a crash and watching him ride away to the finish and taking points from you.

@anon

And as a result the new leader has a 24 point lead, more or less a race wins worth, at only the 4th race of the year, so he just watched someone else ride away with it.
