Following Sunday's Australian Grand Prix, Loris Capirossi - the man who potentially had most to gain from Valentino Rossi's 10 second penalty - led the calls for yellow flags to be made more visible.

Rossi was punished for passing Marco Melandri at the spot where Capriossi's team-mate Troy Bayliss was still being treated after falling a lap before, and Loris had plenty of sympathy for his opponent.

"We need to think about the yellow flag situation - when you're riding at 300kmh with ten other riders it's very difficult to see a yellow flag by the side of the track, and even if you do see the flag it's difficult to brake right there," he said.

Capirossi finished Sunday's race second behind Rossi.
