MotoGP » Honda, FIM won’t release Rossi-Marquez clash data


Lets look at the incident from an aspect which hasn’t yet been raised- Honesty. Each rider has a different story therefore one of them must be lying. VR46 acknowledged what happened and his part in it, and that he ran MM93 wide. He was honest in his admission despite knowing that it may consequently be disadvantageous to him. MM93 has never admitted responsibility for any of his misdemeanours, either in this race or in any of his previous races. He always protests his innocence and points the blame at other riders, even when the world and his dog can all see that he was clearly at fault. VR46’s admission proved his honesty. He did not lie to save his skin. MM93’s denial that he was unfairly holding VR46 up was rejected by Race Officials. They didn't believe him. Both riders and Race Officials obviously know who is telling the truth and who is lying. Anyone who still thinks MM93 was honest is either sadly blind to reality, or so biased as to support what they know to be lies.

R1200GSA111- Clear to me. Rossi' left leg make contact with Marquez's left side of the Bike.
Of course Rossi's leg and MM's bike made contact- Every camera from every angle shows that MM accererated and ran into VR's leg and knocked it off the yamaha's footpeg. There's none so blind as those who refuse to see. A blind-folded labrador carrying a white stick could see that MM accelerated to deliberately cause the coming-together. It is scandalous that MM has got away with deliberately holding up another competitor, then ramming him, thereby fixing the World Championship.

hoppy: People are nit picking over running wide and running off. Fact is the line Val took and the speed Marc came up from behind,he had nowhere else really to go but off.
That is TWO MORE factual errors from you. ONE- It is not nit-picking when "running wide" leaves both bikes on track on tarmac, and "running off" means forcing the other rider off-track and onto a less grippy, more dangerous surface. There is a vast difference between the two situations as any bike or bike-racing enthusiast knows. TWO- MM93 has brakes. VR was in front of MM. MM could easily have braked a bit and stayed on track and on his bike. The video coverage clearly shows that MM CHOSE to accelerate into the side of VR and cause himself to fall off. As I said before, when an arguement is based on falsehoods it is self-defeating.

MotoGP » Honda, FIM won’t release Rossi-Marquez clash data


"Honda and the FIM have decided together not to release the data so as not to fuel further polemics." Note - just Honda and the FIM. No-one else. No other teams. No Promoters. No sponsors. Not the Clerk of the Course. Not the Race Director. Not Loris Capirossi who is in charge of circuit and rider safety. Just Honda and the FIM. They don't give a toss what anyone else thinks, says or wants. It would seem that the opinions of the other parties carry no weight. If that isn't a stitch-up I don't know what is. I am 100 percent sure that if the data showed any fault of VR46, then Honda would have shouted it from the rooftops. I am equally sure that if the data showed MM93 at fault Honda would want to keep it totally to themselves, which is what they have achieved. Their threat to release the data was just a bluff. As a Team Principal, Lin Jarvis probably knew of this impending announcement, and that is probably why he wisely chose to make his own comments first.

Premis: Still i can't believe dirty politics and corruption ruined the championship last year.
Let's take a wider view of modern sport. It has been proved that race fixing by doping occurs in Horse-racing It has been proved that match fixing occurs in Boxing at all levels. It has been proved that International Cycling was rife with cheating. It has been proved that International Athletics has been tainted by individuals cheating, and now by nations cheating drug tests. It has been proved that Football is rotten from the top downwards. Even the gentleman's sport, Cricket, has been victim to fixing. There are other sports which have suffered, too numerous to mention. In all cases, previously well-respected individuals and-or organisations have been proved to be corrupt. Are we sufficiently naive to believe that it could never happen in MotoGP? There's something about the end of 2015 that stinks.

2016 will be ruined if 2015gate is allowed to fester. It must be either relegated to history or solved, or preferably both. From Jarvis's recent interview it is clear he wants to halt the animosity, and achieve clarification of the Rules and Regs for 2016. From FIM and Honda's statement it seems they just want to brush it under the carpet. When one side of a stand-off wants to correct the situation, but the other side wants to pretend it didn't happen, it is logical to deduce that both sides know the truth, and the guilty side is the side who doesn't want to talk about it. Honda want to win, and history shows they have never worried if they have to do it unfairly. I sincerely hope that by the start of the new season new Regs and realistic penalties are introduced to bring "Sportsmanship" back to GP racing.

hoppy: NN93 accelerated in to Rossi, of course they won't release the data, it would prove he instigated his own butt hurt.....ProfX. Errr,actually Prof,it was Val who instigated it by deliberately running Marc off the track. Something he admitted to in his interview with RD.
You are wrong. VR46 admitted to running MM93 wide. he did NOT admit to running MM93 "off the track". Video coverage shows that VR46 always left sufficient room for MM93 between himslf and the track edge. Your attack contains factual inaccuracies, and an arguement based on untruths destroys itself.

MotoGP » Jarvis calls for ‘respect’, MotoGP working on ‘issues’


Here we are again, arguing the same old same old tired points about who did what to whom and why and how and everyone who doesn't agree is biased or a fool. Jarvis is obviously intent on looking forward and driving a solution to the situation. The majority of posters on here are equally obviously intent on looking backwards and fuelling the unrest into an all-out conflict. Newsflash - you can't change what happened last season. You can, however, support those people who are working towards achieving a solution to the problem by clarifying the rules. You could even give your own suggestions on how the rules could be modified, and what and when penalties should be applied. But just arguing about the events of 2015 and pointing the finger of blame according to your allegiances is now no more than just a futile exercise.
