Melandri wants a serious talking to by the team!!! They ought to dock his wages. If this was F1 and Hamilton, he'd have been disqualified for te next race or something. Disgusting behaviour from a supposed "team mate"

I'm not a fan of Rea never have been but I do not blame him at all for that, I put all the blame at Melandri, he was way too hot headed!

Anyone that isn't a novice in watching motorbikes or has raced motorbikes knows that if there's a gap you go for it, seriously unlucky for Leon!

classy rea held his nerve,he was the only one that went into the last corner that did not deviate from his line, held it tight on the inside,it was melandris fault for tryin yet another dirty move, to push haslam wide,2nd time in two corners,i wont mention the first dirty trick in the first race,he pulled on haslam,rea was 5th goin into the loop ,and wudda finished 5th,if it was not for melandri pulling two dirty lunges on his team mate,haslam was faultless ,rea faultless,melandri, what a team mate,suck it up fanboys

Smart move Marco, cost the team 45 points and both your and more importantly, your team mates places.
It's a long season so learn some patience.
