Gilles, hititng each other before the fifth corner is bad, but there have been plenty of cases of team amtes doing that int he first or second corner, and in the 2017 Singapore GP, the two Ferraris and the Red Bull didn't even make it 50 yards off the start line before they'd produced the wolrd's most expensive carbon-fibre jigsaw.

What a couple of dumb f#$ks!  If I were Mr. Hass, I would fire both their asses!    Ungrateful twits!

Anybody saying it was 100% down to AB or TR is just wrong. If it were then the professional riders that steward these races would have come down on one rider or the other. They didn't because both riders shoulder a portion of the blame. We'll see from here how AB handles it. Hopefully his shoulder won't destroy his season.

AB’s crash in race 1 was 100% AB’s fault. AB’s crash in the SP race was the result of TR coming across the nose of AB’s bike and taking out his front wheel. There was nothing AB could do about it, 100% TR’s fault. AB was starting from 3rd on the front row which put him on the inside of turn 1 and 2. He was tight to the inside heading into turn 2. TR got a good start and was on the outside of AB heading into turn 2. TR passed AB just before the first apex of the hairpin but took out AB’s front wheel as he swept in front of him. Not saying TR intentionally tried to take out AB or is a dirty rider but that was a very aggressive move and did wipe out another rider. Anyone who has raced motorcycles knows exactly what happened there.

So Ricciardo is claiming to be a MotoGP bike specialist now is he? In the 70's and 80's whether F1 or bike GP's they got on with their jobs.  Not now. Any mere thing that isnt to their fussy standards and they throw their toys out of the pram.  The 140,000 or so fans that attend Silverstone are being conned.
