MotoGP » Rossi: I regret pushing Marquez wide


CONT'd...but this was just an opinion (logical or not) by Rossi and many fans like myself...I believe MM is working on building his reputation as one of the greatest racers like Vale and to do that he had to be in a race unlike Lorenzo who streaks away at the front... I do not believe it was MM's purposeful intent to mess up Rossi but I could understand why Rossi was upset because MM's actions (purposeful or not) have interfered with the championship!!! but Rossi could find no other explanation why his "friend" would slow his pace in favor of Lorenzo...and for the record he did talk to MM after the race about it...he later drew his conclusion after looking at the inconsistent lap times of MM! SEPANG!!! was then a direct result of Vale's accusation...MM was pissed and decided in that moment to race for the position...all out regardless of the lap...he was not trying to help Lorenzo at least up to the Sepang press conference so.. both riders feel justified but they just see the same inci

MotoGP » Rossi: I regret pushing Marquez wide


What I am about to say many of you will not like!!! but nobody on here had any complaint after Phillip Island about race fixing by Marquez, including myself. I got on the wagon because Rossi pointed it out. I do not believe anyone thought about this, Honda, Yamaha etc etc. When Rossi leveled the accusation it became clear that MM was slowing his pace which directly affected Rossi...with less than 1 second covering Lorenzo to Rossi and Rossi fighting and exchanging positions on track for 80% of the race compared to 20% for Lorenzo it is believable that Rossi could have overcome Lorenzo in the race and yes I believe Iannone could have done so too... so this is why Vale said MM was helping Lorenzo. Lorenzo was oblivious because he was out front most of the race. Marquez was all about Marquez..there was no pact because we all know MM does not really care for JL.. MM likes/liked Vale but would prefer if JL won the title keeping Rossi's record within reach..... CONT'd

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'sorry' for Rossi rostrum gesture


Not sure why all the bashing. I am a Rossi fan but there was no sneaking around by JL...everything he did was on the news for god's sake. His apology was to the fans for unsporting actions on the podium not to Valentino. I am sure he still believes Vale should have a harsher punishment (some agree and some do not). He was given directions not to speak about the incident by "Politics" Permanent bureau and I think it was for the better. We must all admit that what Rossi did was wrong (I do not however believe he "kicked" MM). With that said I am happy that this is the worst outcome because he could have been black flagged and lost more and in the end it would have been his fault for allowing MM to control his reaction!! Hey! do not get me wrong!! I would have punched MM in the face if I was Vale but I am not a title contender or a world champion with millions of fans and fighting for a title so he needed to be the bigger man and as is possible with any human, he made a mistake on track..

MotoGP » Yamaha responds to Honda, Repsol 'kick' comments


Both teams supporting their rider...I do not see the issue...Marc probably genuinely believes that Rossi kicked his brake lever..the data shows a sudden brake force putting MM on the ground but the data cannot identify that it was a kick...it could also have been when the contact was made by MM leaning in... We must also remember that while Rossi was wrong for doing what he did, Marc could have ran wide by lifting the bike up but he chose to lean in...very understandable since MM probably feels he should not have to give in to Vale but this was also a factor in the crash. Again, as a Vale fan, I know he did the wrong thing but I am not the one on track and feeling the frustration of what MM was doing or has been doing. I believe race direction made the right call in light of the criticality of the decision. They took the time to review the footage..and chose to not act rash...whatever the final decision, as a fan, I accept because what my rider did was wrong...but he did not kick MM b

MotoGP » CAS rejects Lorenzo ‘intervention’ in Rossi appeal


TheGame: WOW All this dude had to do was get some popcorn and enjoy all the drama that mm interfierance brought to the season finale...but he could'nt even do that right...off track this guy is a loser
I agree but this was probably a lawyer recommendation in light of what is at stake. Most can agree that Rossi made an error in Sepang...few agree on the punishment but since Rossi is appealing it via lawful means, it would be prudent that Lorenzo's lawyers also look out for his interest. The CAS decision or indecision in time for the race has big implications for the title. The problem Lorenzo is facing is that most fans want to see this play out on track and this action is contrary to that happening therefore the backlash. The truth is (as a Rossi fan) if he had not succumb to the MM game Rossi would not be in this position...but like any human I understand the frustration of wanting to punch someone in the face....

MotoGP » Marquez mystified by Rossi attack


This surprised me..mostly because I also like MM...I agree with Vale that MM played during the race...an accusation that Lorenzo said of Rossi also in the past. The difference is when Rossi did it, it was for the title unlike now with MM. HOWEVER, I do NOT believe it was malicious on Marquez's part. I also understand why Rossi would then be upset because it does interfere with the more important championship at stake. We need to look at the bigger picture, Rossi is in possibly the final years of his career and the opportunities to win the title are drastically less with many competitive riders, add that to the fact that these guys are ultra competitive, any interference at this stage could then be viewed as malicious particularly since the controversies of Argentina and Assen. PS Vale did not bring up Laguna Seca...a reporter asked him about it and he said that it was basically choreographed as MM could have passed after considering the difference in pace at the time.

MotoGP » Marquez mystified by Rossi attack


I think most of us got it wrong including MM and JL. This is not a strategy. Vale is not doing something he has done before...he is genuinely angry at what the data is confirming in his mind. The question is did MM deliberately slow the pace? not unusual...but if it affects the championship fight then the involved parties can and will draw whatever conclusions. Here is my take.. If MM ran his true perceived pace then Iannone and Vale could have tangled more with Lorenzo...not once does Rossi say he would have won or beat Lorenzo but we must consider that the top 4 were covered by 1 second!! And even less covered 2nd to 4th with Rossi having many more faster race laps than Jorge and all that was still achieved with more battling with Iannone and MM while JL held the lead for most of the race. Rossi's obvious conclusion would be that MM interfered in what could have been a lower position for Lorenzo...Iannone could have been second...leaving Rossi and Lorenzo to slug it out.
