It think Melandi, said he had to go for it, the rest is becuase of that..and it in such a short time frame in wich things happen.
If u go for it, u go for it Rea did it and Leon had to get back on the same line or close to where Rea was, didnt sea Rea,,, clash game over 1 winner 2 loosers,

@ the last word.

are you a yank conspiricy theorist, you left several facts out to try and win your argument.

leon ran wide off the racing line, jonny stayed on it and leon cut back in, get over it, melandri threw a BM 1-2 down the drain, but apparanty would have settled for second according to post press. a well earned victory for jonny. and well done leon for 15th!

think you need your eyes checked. Take look at the picture that comes with the story. Jr is on a tight line there. Haslam was unfortunate to be pushed wide by his teamates lunge. Then when he wanted to share the same bit of tarmac that jr was on it simply didnt work.

Was a big fan of max way back in his telkor aprilia days,still think he's a great character,never mind racer.the sport will be poorer when he retires.

Surprised at u pcxmac,i wud have thought that a ride like that from Rea today would have been something even the emperor would have approved of!

Ah, don't you just love armchair racers. Why don't you wait to see what the 'victim' of Melandri's lunge has to say before you all start shooting your ill-informed mouths off:

Quoting Leon: "It could easily have been two double podiums for us. I was in the lead, but Marco got in much too quick on both the last two corners. I didn't brake too hard and too late, but he came from a long way back and I had to lift off. I went to close the line, but Jonathan was there. Marco knows it was a big mistake. I don't blame Johnny. Obviously there are no team orders with BMW - Marco and I are both going for the championship, and that's racing."

'Didn't you forget something Jonathan?' I think he said what needs to be said to Leons face,as it should be...JR's non celebration when he won showed he was a bit upset at what happened.
