MotoGP » Agostini: Five moments I remember most

Riders were killed often in those days because there were dangerous obstacles all around the tracks, their brakes were inadequate, the tracks were poor and the tyres had far less grip than they do today. Now the tyres have unbelievable grip, the brakes are sensational and the GP tracks are smooth and grippy and have big kitty litter bins and air fences around the perimeter where riders can fall without injury. In Ago's day, if one rider bumped into another rider and knocked him down, that guy might well have been killed. Today we see riders bumping each other off the track at every other race because they know their victim will probably be OK. To me that's a far cry from Ago's era when the riders were mostly gentlemen and treated one another with dignity and respect. I don't want to see any rider killed, of course, but I think that modern safety measures have actually led to this situation where riders no longer respect one another and behave like spoiled brat egotists.

MotoGP » Rossi blasts Marquez after MotoGP title defeat

Rossi is a sore loser and a bad sportsman. he has shown this childish tendency repeatedly throughout his career. He is a great rider of course but he is also a bully and a spoiled child who has never grown up. It is Rossi, not Marquez , who has caused the friction this season and finally he has paid the price for his bullying. He would be better to keep his mouth shut and accept defeat gracefully.

MotoGP » Permanent Bureau: Sport must prevail on Sunday

I wish all those people who are baying for Marquez' blood would try to get things in perspective. The poor kid hasn't actually done anything wrong. The officials agree that all of his passes on Rossi were clean. The allegations that he was trying to slow Rossi down are unproven. All of the animosity towards him is based on nothing more than speculation. Rossi, on the other hand, has admitted that he meant to force Marc off the track.

MotoGP » Lorenzo denies title 'pact' with Marquez

As I see it, Rossi has shown time and time again that he is a bully both on and off the racetrack, yet the racing judiciary have never penalised him for any of those "racing incidents" that he has (in my view) probably deliberately caused, because he is a star and their no.1 crowdpuller. This time he went too far and did something for which he was clearly to blame beyond doubt. As far as I'm concerned it was him who made an art form of bumping other riders off the track and making calculated taunting remarks about other riders to the media. He got away with it until now but at last he is finally paying the price. Other riders have arrived who can match his skills and give him back as good as he gives. As far as I'm concerned Rossi has finally got what he deserves. He has turned the sport of motorcycle racing into a spiteful battlefield and it will be better without him.

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

Everyone seems to have forgotten how many times Valentino has played this situation to his advantage. I know this will be unpopular but I agree with Bradley Smith. Until race control regulates against it there will be more last corner blocking incidents involving Valentino - and race control will continue to turn a blind eye and call then "racing incidents". They're just giving the green light to his dirty racing tactics.
