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


ReaFan:
PR: LOL, did I just read that Marquez pulled a block pass? Some people are delusional beyond reasoning...
attempted, obviously didnt pull it off. if it was a right turn only Marc wins. dont have a go at me for saying what everyone else does. I'll take a level headed unbiased racers opinion, over any of your lots overly biased opinions anyday.
There is no way that could ever be considered a block pass. A barge pass, maybe. It was no different to what Rossi has done many times, but Marc had to go crying about it - not very Rossi like. It was Marc's bike beginning to drift/slide that put him into Rossi from what I could see.

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


1001: I agree with Bradley Smith.... "Valentino played the circumstance perfectly to his advantage," said Smith. "He made sure Marc hit him so then he had to go across the gravel and no one can say anything. That's finally what it is. Yes... VR cut the corner with deliberately and planned, he knows MM will try on last corner. He kind of crafty rider
Big gamble don't you think. Rossi needed to finish ahead of Jorge, not risk ending up on the deck handing Jorge 25 points - a planned collision. Doubt it. way to risky.

MotoGP » Marquez: I feel that we won the race


I'm dissapointed how he reacted to this after the race. I thought better of him in that he would simply shrug it off like Rossi has always done in the past as a racing incident rather than throwing his toys out the pram. Thats Jorge style. It was his own doing, just like Argentina was it. Its almost as if he feels he has a point to prove specifically because its Rossi more than any of the others. One thing is for sure, had he skittled Rossi, he would be public enemy no1.

gutbucket: cant see how it would make a lot of diffrence who was in front at time of contact if the rider attempting the overtake let go of the brake just to get a wheel in front but in doing so was never going to get around the corner without losing a lot of exit speed does that make it ok because hes in front.mm did exactly this too lorenzo so did rossi too gibernau (cant be botherd to check spelling).rossi has probablly been the worse rider for this type of pass now the riders who watched him when they were kids are thinking thats ok rossi always gets away with it, trouble is rossi always gets special treatment imagine the uproar if exactly the same incident occured but swap riders around rossi hitting mm and mm bypassing the corner for the win theres no way in a million years would they award first place to marq.
Rossi would take it on the chin as a racing incident and laugh about it. Marquez starts moaning like Jorge.

F1 » Drivers play down desire for ‘risky’ F1


And the fans just want to be entertained. With all the different rules, fuel, gearbox, engine restrictions and so on, F1 is no longer a spint race - its a short endurance race where the cars have to be 'managed' rather than just flat out to the finish. I always remember watching Schumacher in what was effectively a qualifying car going flat out. Amazing. The speed changes, the direction changes defyed logic. But looked amazing.

F1 » Drivers play down desire for ‘risky’ F1


Wiseguy:
theoldgitspeaks: What we actually want to see is something called "racing" as I understand the word it means to go as fast as possible for the entire race and compete with other competitors. It also means that there is a built in amount of risk if you are trying to get past another competitor. I don't think we expect drivers to take more or unnecessary risks but we would like to see more powerful cars and cars that presented a challenge to drive, not as now where a 17 year old can step in and be instantly competitive. We don't want to see processions where drivers are too busy watching their fuel consumption or looking after their tyre's or twiddling knobs for some reason. It's not a lot to ask for Christ's sake but it seems to be totally beyond the current rule makers. I've watched F1 since about 1960 and have seen some truly amazing racing during that time. Perhaps we need to take a step back to the past rather than making F1 ever more complicated and

F1 » Alonso: I lost motivation at Ferrari


SoSlo: i think the truth serum would be more like this... "i don't understand how the FIA or BE think anybody can push their way to the front when we can't work on the car"
Agreed. The current ban on testing and development rules are ruining it. There is next to no opportunity for anyone to pull it back - because they can't, as you say, work on the car. The bad weekend they just had, with 25 grid place penalties for both drivers really just highlights how unbelievably stupid the current rules are. There was hardly any point in them starting the race at all, and I can't remember if the penalties carry over, if they do, thats the next one screwed as well - so why bother turning up. Its a farce.
