MotoGP » Ecclestone would have DQ’d Rossi for Marquez clash


What's it got to do with Bernie Ecclestone ( sounds like imported kitchen floor tiling ) ? Carmelo Ezpeleta ( sounds like an ice-cream flavour ? ) is not AFAIK, prone to announcing his opinions on incidents in F1, so why should The Bernster interfere on MotoGP issues? ( I think I know the answer to my own question- Bernie is just up to mischief, headline grabbing. )

hoppy: Yes Crash.people do have different opinions but it seems you are only interested in hearing the pro Val ones. This IS a Motogp discussion site is it not? Whats the point if you only want to hear one side of things.
Yes mate, you are quite right that this is a discussion site. I like to hear both sides of a debate, and yes, i do post to support my opinion. That's the pupose of the site. It's rare that posters are unanimous because we all have our favourites so it is inevitable that there will be different interpretations of any subject and then it is a question of highlighting the flaws in the arguments of those with opposing views. My aim is to use logic and facts. I'd be happy, Hoppy, to sink a few pints with you and chat bikes. Cheers.

hoppy: You keep claiming that the PROOF exists,but no investigation is going on or will ever go on.
The PROOF is in Race Direction's statement which confirmed that MM93 had unfairly delayed VR46. No further PROOF is necessary. [blockquote hoppy When Dorna launch an investigation into race fixing,i will sit up and listen. But we all know its not going to happen! We all know Dorna are relishing their current media prominence and are not likely to conclude the issue. Dorna are, in any case, not official rule makers as that is the job of the FIM in consultation with the mnfrs. However, we can fully expect that Race Direction will, in public or in private, instruct riders of expected race behaviour, and/or amend the Rules to penalise transgressors. The necessity for those actions will have been entirely brought about by RD recognising and stating that MM "fouled" VR46, but the Rules had not anticipated such unsporting conduct.

One poster on this forum exhorts readers to “leave it be, disregard 2015’s confrontations, it’s over” (I paraphrase, but will search back for the evidence if anyone has conveniently forgotten.) The same poster has made 5 out of the last 10 postings, which is far from “letting the subject drop”. The same poster criticises VR46 for speaking out, while taking 5 out of the last 10 postings to expound at length and speak his own views. Where in MotoGP’s rule book does it forbid a rider from stating his opinions to the Media? Surely it is better to raise the topic openly for everyone to judge its validity? Surely it is better to raise the subject verbally than to engage in unsportsmanlike tactics on track (recognised by RD in confirming than MM deliberately obstructed VR)? Why should endangering another rider and influencing the Championship by deliberately blocking another rider on track QED be overlooked while simply making a comment in the pits is vehemently condemned?

RealRacingCampaign: There's an easy way to settle all this. It's called MotoGP 2016.
It is ridiculous to imagine that 2016 will settle 2015's disputes. It will merely leave them to fester without resolution and will forever be remembered and argued over. The circumstances in 2016 will be totally changed by new tyres and new ECUs (and hopefully new Rules concerning race etiquette) and the contestants will all be one year older, which will be an added advantage for youth such as MM93 and and a growing, snow-balling handicap for riders such as VR46 who are approaching the end of their career in the Premier class. Your proposition merely favours your young favourites and places older riders at a greater handicap. It settles nothing.

primal: VERY STRANGE HOW NO ONE SEES RIDERS PULLING OVER LETTING ROSSI PASS AS A RACING FAN I WAS DISAPPOINTED TO SEE RIDERS OPENLY PULLING OVER TO LET ANOTHER RIDER PASS
One- At the start, VR passed many riders before the first turn through sheer acceleration after a brilliant start. No-one moved out of the way willingly. Two- There is no evidence to show that during the race anyone deliberately moved over to let VR pass. All you see is VR passing them cleanly and decisively. Three- If you are midfield and a rider who started at the back of the grid catches up with you he is obviously riding at a faster pace than you are, so there is no sense in resisting his pass and risking taking out the pair of you. FOUR- and this is the most telling point- IF other riders moved over to allow VR to pass, it clearly tells you that they agreed with his stance in the Sepang dispute, and did NOT agree with the penalties imposed upon him.

bikenut: Suggestion - don't watch any new races instead watch endless reruns of when Valentino was handed the winning Honda from Doohan and ran special tyres, he was young and aggressive and he was almost unbeatable! RD was liberal back then, Those were the days!
You seem to have forgotten that what you call special tyres were totally legal and within the rules. What fool would ignore such a benefit, if benefit there was. You also conveniently forget that when VR46 left Honda to go to Yamaha, Honda said that he was finished and vowed that VR would not win ever again. The following year VR won on the Yam first time out and went on to win the Championship. Honda are manipulative of the races, the series and the Rules and are sore and bitter losers.

Codger: My post gave my view that they SHOULD care, and the mess should have been sorted out immediately after PI. Rossi would then have had no need to make his views known at Sepang Press Conf. For one rider to accuse another of such wrongdoing is serious and should have been nipped in the bud.
Spot on Codger. VR's accusations at PI were serious and should have been investigated by Race Control. Their findings should then have been notified to all riders and all teams and the public and the media. There are two basic facts which are beyond conjecture. One- Race Direction wrote that DESPITE what MM said WE (RD) believe he deliberately slowed down VR''. Unfortunately they could not penalise MM because the Rules had not anticipated that anyone would be so blatantly unsporting . and Two- after Valencia Lorenzo said in his statement after he won that MM had helped him win the championship. Every thing else is either conjecture or unsubstantiated claims.

crashnetdummies: It works both ways. Marquez also knows what happened and refuted all Rossi's accusations. So who's right ? Probably none of them but Rossi fans don't wanna hear that, they wanna hear Marquez is guilty as charged and Rossi a poor victim. Bullsh*t.
It is in writing and on the record - Race Direction said MM93 was deliberately obstructing VR46.
Jarvis and Nakamoto don't care and they don't want to be involved with this mess anymore. They're so right.
If that was true there would not have been regular announcements over the past couple of weeks from both Suppo and Makamoto on the subject ?

MotoGP » Honda: This was our biggest mistake…


PaulW54:
Tetley: Nakamoto " “This was our biggest mistake for this year. Because as you know Sepang is very high temperature and high humidity. Usually in this kind of conditions the engine loses power. Therefore less aggressive. " High temperature, yes. But surely it has been proven that high humidity increases power. There used to be water/steam after-market generators which claimed to increase power. It is noticable that on a foggy morning an engine responds more crisply.
So, you know more than the Honda engineers..... Interesting.
I'm sure I don't. My point, which perhaps was too subtle for you, is that Nakamoto's words don't ring true.
