MotoGP » Rossi: I don’t want rain!


Southerner, of course we know where you stand. But kudos, a very intelligent observation. To the other poster, I don't believe that rain is "the leveler". As a matter of fact, racing in the rain requires a quick decisions on the bike settings plus different sets of riding skills (i.e. finding your limit in the wet track), both of which require talents. That, in it's own, an interesting aspects to watch.

MotoGP » FIM launches review after Rossi-Stoner incident


If, and I mean if, what Rossi said is true, that he wasn't even trying to overtake Stoner, then here's what happened. Rossi was surprised to find Stoner braked early and tried to avoid him by going inside, tighter than his normal racing line. Usually, when you go in tight, then you'll need to go wider at the exit, but in Rossi's case, Stoner was right on his side. This forced him to keep his line tighter than his tyres can hold at that particular speed and track grip. The rest is history. IMHO, Rossi didn't make an overly ambitious move. He was just forced to take a tighter line. That's all.
