MotoGP » Rossi wants Lorenzo title fight 'on equal terms'

He doesn't want a fair fight, he wants everyone to let him get to one place behind Lorenzo. He's not fast enough to fight Lorenzo. He's not fast enough to fight Marquez or Pedrosa either. If he was, he would accept the independent judge's decision. He's appealed and lost, now he wants the penalty deferred, so it won't matter. He doesn't deserve to win anything. He deliberately pulled a dangerous move in close proximity to another rider, resulting in a crash and DNF for the other competitor. He should have been DSQed. He got a soft penalty and can't accept that he even did wrong. I've seen four year olds behave better than Rossi. He wants to have his cake and eat it too.

MotoGP » Rossi champion if, Lorenzo champion if…

cont... If it's deferred, and CAS decides that the penalty should have stood, Rossi should have his points from Sepang cancelled, otherwise, the deferral is unfair. It's a sad situation for genuine fans of MotoGP. Rossi has trashed the championship this year, because he realised that he's not good enough anymore, and was prepared to lower himself to any level in a desperate attempt to bask in glory once more. Sad in deed.

MotoGP » Rossi champion if, Lorenzo champion if…

Unfortunately, no matter who wins, the championship has been tainted by Rossi's behaviour. I found no evidence that supported Rossi's press coference attack on Marquez. Especially when you consider that Marquez actually won the race in Philip Island anyway, and that all the commentators and fans were saying that it was the best race for years... Not surprising that Marquez was determined to fight with Rossi in Sepang, and was determined to finish in front of him. Similar to the way Iannone lifted his game earlier in the year, riding with injury, when Marquez came into frame - Crazy Joe pulled some really hard moves out, because they are fierce rivals. The incident, and ensuing saga suggests to me that Rossi has lost his perspective completely. Lorenzo should have dead batted the questions at the press conference. Rossi should have fronted it. We'll find out on Friday whether Rossi gets his penalty start deferred until after Friday. If it's deferred, and CAS decides that the penalt

MotoGP » Smith seeking ‘super’ sixth in championship

Bradders has proved that he's the goods this year. All those that ripped into him before he'd even run a race ought to self-flagellate until they've achieved penance. I for one have enjoyed Bradders' thoroughly professional work ethic and talent this year. Ibelievwed he had it in hm, but you can never know until that potential is realised. It would be nice if he can win a race or two next year, with more equal software etc.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi appeals Sepang penalty

fann: ... In the 5 days post PI race before Rossi's outburst, how many journalists and VR fans made comment that Marqez was interferring with Rossi's race. I know many attacked Iannone for not letting Rossi come third, but I don't recall anything until VR brought it up in the pre race press conference at Malaysia. I recall most comments were of what a fantastic race it was at PI.
Well, it was Rossi himself who said he thought he was being held up - after watching the replay several times, not at the time. ...
Just because Rossi said it does not mean it's true.
I've analysed the lap and sector times. Rossi's claim doesn't stack up.

MotoGP » Honda: Data shows Rossi 'kick' on Marquez

Matt2: When you watch the images you can clearly see Marc turning in to Rossi as he expects Rossi to turn in to the corner. Rossi doesent, Marc hits rossi and the brake lever most likely makes contact with Rossis Knee slider ...
It doesn't matter whether he aimed the kick or not. The kick or point of contact is not really the substantive issue. The reality is that Rossi deliberately took Marquez off the racing line. That would be ok too, except that he ran across the front of him, cotrolling his brakes, and watching to ensure he cut off all options except an off-track excursion.. Marquez had nowhere to go. That is normally considered dangerous riding, and it DID cause the crash. If Rossi didn't do that, Marquez would not have come done.
