MotoGP » Pedrosa: It was a day to forget

While Rossi is my favorite rider, I've always felt bad for Pedrosa as he gets a lot of negativity from people. He has a lot of talent and I had hoped on a season that Rossi wasn't doing well that Pedrosa would have won a championship. But while he has great talent he's one of the most unlucky riders as in the beginning of Motogp career he seemed to constantly get hurt and have surgery after surgery to get things repaired which usually reduced his chance of winning a championship. This year is a prime example of that. On top of all that he's saddled with extremely fast teammates who make it even tougher to win and seems to have mechanical gremlins and other issues. But that all said, I wish him better days but of course not better than Rossi. Plus as others noted he's soft spoken, polite and seems like a really nice guy. Makes it tough to root against a guy like that.

MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...

I don't know what race the haters where watching but Rossi was ahead of Marquez by 3 to 5/10ths and Marquez pushed wildly to make up that gap (which I credit him for trying) but at the last chicane he did an unsafe bonzai move hoping he'd either knock Rossi down or bully him out of way to win the race. Race direction called it a race incident to not upset Marquez or more importantly HRC as they kind of run the show or at least have significant weight in Motopg. Glad of course Rossi won and no one got hurt.

MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez left me with no chance

As Rossi had made a decent gap in the last lap and we all saw Marquez eating into that gap way too quick, as somone put it if he didn't hit Rossi he may have crashed or at least went wide. But no excuse by Marquez he should have been penalized for the unsafe move as it's his responsibility as the one trying to overtake to make it a safe move which he didn't. As he has a history of this type of behaviour he should have been hit hard with a penalty. But Race Direction took the easy way out.

MotoGP » Pedrosa: It was a day to forget

I agree with Realist that as the rider style dictate various setup and choices in parts such as chassis and swingarm stiffness as well as suspension setup and even tire choices. It makes sense that a newer rider to the series use base setup from more veteran teammates but I'm sure as they get comfortable and esp if they're style of riding is different then the the general items and setup become different. But I'm sure keeping an eye on how well a teammate is doing and the potential causes of those successes even if at various corners of a track. But a lot depends on relationships with teammates and team rules on that stuff.

Prof X but isn't that the case in every team. They pay more attention to the top dog unless both dogs are very similar in chance of winning which is the case at Yamaha at the moment. HRC feels that Marquez is there best bet hence the added attention to have him win. Howeve, if the #2 rider in the team wants to be #1 they need to beat the #1 rider consistantly.
