To bad, but from what i saw it was melandri fault, no room at all.
But im confused now, because when i said the same about rea... it was due to rea was a real racer and not to blame him, because if a racer see room he takes it people say. so was this a real racer move or was it his own fault.
did MM make a real mistake or was it a good move like rea often does??!!

Thats weird, i noticed that for the restart for this race they went back 1 lap to decide the grid, are they not meant to go back 2 laps or have they changed the rules again?

MoToGP, are you sure it wasn't rea's fault. Maybe when rea came out of the corner he slammed the bike into reverse, went back down the track and knocked melandri off.
