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


MrSmart
Tetley Bearing in mind that everyone saw MM's obvious lunge at VR and hit him with his helmet, the assertion that "Rossi denied kicking Marquez, saying "He touched me with the handlebar on my left leg and it is for that reason he crashed. When I lose the foot on the footpeg Marquez is already down." is the most likely explanation of the incident.
Watch the defining moment on Rossi's onboard camera on youtube. "Slow Motion Onboard Camera Rossi Kick"
I did. If you highlight and copy "Rossi kicked Marquez in Malasia Slowmotion" including the exact mis-spelling of Malaysia and paste and search utube it can clearly be seen that MM made contact with VR before VR's leg or foot left the peg.

MotoGP » CAS confirms Rossi to start last at Valencia


PorkPie:
Tetley: .One- Marquez is allowed to continue his dirty tricks without fear of penalty
What dirty tricks. .
The dirty tricks which Race Direction identified as deliberately and unfairly impeding Rossi, but for which they could not penalise Marquez as the Rule Book didn't anticipate such non-sporting behaviour
PorkPie: personally I tune in to watch racing
So do I- not to watch a get-in-the-way drone working to influence a championship he has no hope of winning in favour of another rider in another team. That's not racing- that's race fixing.

MotoGP » CAS confirms Rossi to start last at Valencia


.Irrespective of whether it is right or wrong, the rejection of the appeal means One- Marquez is allowed to continue his dirty tricks without fear of penalty Two- If Lorenzo wins the WC it will be a hollow victory. Note small “v”. Three- If Rossi wins the WC it will be his finest hour. Four- Race Direction should learn the lesson that they should pay more regard to the SPIRIT of the Rules and Sportsmanship. Five- The Rules need to be urgently revised, preferably BEFORE this weekend's race. The Rule-Makers need to decide if running a competitor wide ( like most riders do, but for which Rossi was penalised ) is legal or not and add a rule accordingly. They also need to decide if deliberately and repeatedly impeding another rider is acceptable or not and legislate accordingly. If they do not take those decisions and implement them immediately then the Rule-makers and the judges of fact are not fit for purpose and deserve to have their contracts terminated

madh4tt3r: lol rossi actually can easily win the championship. SImple: start at the back, cruise around until lorenzo comes past to lap him, drive straight into him, both DNF and rossi is crowned champion, it will be a sickening championship but hey a champion none the less. AND there are no rules against this, they can DSQ him and nothing will change cos lorenzo wont score either. i dont really want the above to happen or it really will taint him forever and i will then really stop liking him much like i did with schmucker when he did that to hill.
In F1 Senna and Prost did that to each other. Schumacher did it to Hill. None were penalised. But it's a disgusting way win a World Champioship in any form of motor sport.

MotoGP » CAS rejects Lorenzo ‘intervention’ in Rossi appeal


MRV3: Lorenzo really doesn't have to do this, even if he win the championship this year, he will lose so much respect from all the neutral motogp fans. No doubt he can ride fast on a motogp bike, but now he shows he is a pretty dumb and unpopular person in real life.
You're right- and JLo has ambitions of being a Movie Star. I can just imagine the masses of cinema-goers queueing to watch someone so unpopular ( not ).

MotoGP » CAS rejects Lorenzo ‘intervention’ in Rossi appeal


There are two points relative to this thread, and neither of them is the collision. One is that some say VR was wrong to speak out after PI. If he hadn’t spoken out MM would have got away with his PI actions, and continued to use them at Sepang. But VR DID speak out and MM DID continue his race spoiling, but with his actions scrutinised more closely. So either way MM would have unsportingly delayed VR, and therefore VR's warning came true and was justified. The other point is that the stated aim of JLo's request for intervention had been "to make sure the CAS understands the impact their decision could have on the WC ". The adjudicators of CAS would justifiably feel insulted by the implication from JLo that they did not understand the effect on the WC. Obviously JLo secretly knows that the jury is well aware of championship implications, therefore JLo must have had other motives. By attempting to interfere, JLo has proved his interest is not in justice, but in screwing VR.

MotoGP » CAS rejects Lorenzo ‘intervention’ in Rossi appeal


Yearby23: I totally agree. It's also funny how Rossi also came into 500cc on a Factory machine, the rule wasn't around back then but his NSR was far from Satellite...
Another fine example of Honda making special provision for their own team. Remember it was Honda's might and power which ditched the mighty 990s and gave us the 800cc formula. And it was Honda then wanting to change again to litre bikes. Honda always want the rules to favour them, and they have them changed if they don't. I'm wondering how long it will be before Honda protest Ducati's winglets.

Yearby23: Then if someone else gets a back of the grid penalty they should be allowed to defer it to when they choose...Special rules for the 46 remember. .
It was "Special Rules" which were specifically introduced which allowed Marquez to move straight into a factory team instead of having to spend his MotoGP first year in a satellite team. On a satellite bike he would have been marmalised by the likes of Crutchlow, Smith and the other non-factory riders. They would have put some manners on him.

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


steveonadalkiia: Not wishing the same treatment from MM in Sepang, VR’s accusations of his riding in Philip Island was an attempt on trying to ensure MM would just go out and ride as fast as he could and not interfere with the race or his pace, but sadly MM did the opposite.
I agree completely. Some say that VR was wrong to say what he did in PI. They should consider what would have happened if he had not said it - MM would have continued as before and impeded VR's Sepang race. That would have happened anyway as it was Marc's intention in both races. So saying it did not prevent MM from trying his dirty tricks again, but it did draw attention to it , and RD concurred that MM was deliberately delaying VR. RD also said that what MM did was not against the Rules, but everyone knows it was against the SPIRIT of the Rules.

geoffrey.spears.52: So, kneeing someone off their bike is OK as long as they made contact with you first - even if you created the situation with your road rage?
I am pleased to read your inherent admission that MM hit VR first. You must also consequently accept and admit that, given the respective positions of their bodies and bikes that it is entirely feasible that in the collision VR's foot was knocked off the peg by MM or his machine. No evidence exists that VR “kneed” MM off his bike "Road rage" may well be an appropriate description of what MM had previously intentionally and deliberately hoped to provoke, but all actions and reactions in the actual incident were direct consequences of MM choosing to ride into and hit VR. MM had obstructed VR for several laps, and had now hit him and knocked VR’s foot off his peg. Marquez was the aggressor and that was recorded by Race Direction.
