Looking at the incident several times, also frame by frame, it seems to me that Rea is absolutely the one hitting Haslam and not vice versa.
Melandri was definately starting things off with a really silly move (in my opinion), and the rest just happend.
When you see a gap on the last corner of the race, I reckon it's quite natural to go for it. Otherwise you wouldn't be a racer in the first place.
I'm really sorry for Haslam, as he was the winner in my view. However these things happen, and I would definately call this a racing incident.
Good to see no one got injured.

I see the usual MUPPETS are making ill educated comments as usual


Marco M was the innocent taken out by haslam who was hit by the win or bin tactics of "Jonny Rea", he will cause someone a nasty injury soon enough

You can so tell which comments are made by people that actually ride a bike !

well they are coming to america soon, pls ensure you ask the race director to ensure riders dont overtake unless they carefully concider it, like you suggested in your previous post. JR had about 1/10th of a second (Maybe less) to go for a gap that was clearly there. how long do you suggest? 3 seconds? maybe a ride through to discuss it with their crew chief?

@ the last word

marco's lunge caused leon to run wide making a gap for johnny. had marco settled for 45 points this weekend we would not be discussing it, leon would be in BMW hall of fame with him. but he went for a gap, just as jonny did, it didnt work (and never would have from that distance) but it worked for jonny.

"it worked for jonny"

Never mind the fact Jonny used another rider as a third brake and caused both BMW riders to fall off.

FACT 1 : Marco Never made contact with any body
FACT 2 : Jonny never had a GAP which is why he hit haslam
FACT 3 : If Jonny wast such an Idiot Haslam would of won the race
FACT 4 : It was not the only time in the race that Jonny Rea used another rider to hepl him make the corner

Thi is the last word
