Didn't you guys see the rewind!!!
it was marco it was biaggi. ITS WAS REA!! with his bone head move that cause haslam to fall and take marco with him.
even the Eurosport guy said that!!

Hope rea doesn't make a move like that if he aint capable to win.

just love the way rea responds to some of these hard moves, by the italians(would be bullys)prima donnas,he just dives under lifts them up at the next opportunity,or slams it across them,dont fk with me or were all goin down attitude,maybe if haslam hadda been a little harder with his team mate melandri,marco would think twice about these wild lunges,nice one rea !

Racing incident. Any one of the 3 could have avoided the accident. Melandri could have been realistic, seeing there was no way that move was going to stick, Rea never expected Haslam to recover his line and Haslam could've sat up and conceded the place.
All three of them and max too had been banging each other about all race - all of it hard and fair. All 3 wanted to win and this was just a racing incident borne out of 3 guys not willing to settle for anything less than a win at the final turn. Really unlucky for the BMW boys but sometimes that's racing.

You can blame both Melandri & Rea for robbing Leon of a certain win ! I'm gutted for him ! Melandri just couldn't accept he wasn't going to win and accept a podium !Rea went for a gap that wasn't really there! But BMW bosses after rightfully congratulating Melandri on their 1st Win should be slaughtering him for costing them their 1st DOUBLE !

Please don't said about racing and Rossi

Melandris move was such Rossis in Jerez 2011, he was to far away behind.
Haslam had to ride a little wider, Johnny has seen 30 cm space and was there, its simple.

Shame, Leon deserved a podium.
So its Biaggi the luckies.
