I agree on the humor lost in translation and possibly just Rossi trying to get in people's head.

Hmmmm, so I randomly fast forwarded to (15 Laps To Go) and what do I see on J-Lo's pit board?

L 14
MARQUEZ
+ 1.2

and nothing more. You're welcome

As much as im a Rossi fan, I have to admit that if Marquez was on a Yamaha he'd have run away with this title. It seems crazy that for all the reputation of always delivering a top-notch racing product that screamed consistent-quality-bland-reliability this year's RCs are just too hard to ride. Honda lost this championship as much or more than Yamaha is going to win it.

You took the time to hunt for a shot of a pit board with only Marquez on it, then came on here to post about it even though I said there was a chance that somewhere in the race it only showed who 2nd was.

I, got a notification that I was quoted, so I clicked to see. You on the other hand, responded within 4 minutes of a post that you weren't even quoted in.

I'm more than happy to ride with you next weekend, it's gotta be at msrh though.

Well it's good to see that you've got the type of life where firstly, you deem it necessary to receive notification that you've been quoted and then secondly, respond.

How much time passed between your claim that there wasn't a board that only showed MM's gap until I felt like reviewing an awesome race today and posting about it? Would you like me to cite other examples when MM was the only rider on the board?

Let the games begins. Looks like MM was blocking and VR gave him a nudge

3 penalty points and start at the end of the pack at Valencia for VR. He may have screwed himself here.

If things weren't playing out with it being Rossi and going for 10 he would get a harsher punishment. Marc was being a pest but taking him out was weak.

I'm a Rossi fan, a MM fan, and a JLo fan. But IMHO Rossi lost his cool. He might be frustrated bc he's racing a younger version of himself

Before the race Rossi, 36, accused Marquez of deliberately trying to impede him during the Australian Grand Prix on 18 October in order to help Lorenzo.

"Marquez did not play with both of us, he played only with me," Rossi said.

"He isn't playing fair. He would prefer Lorenzo to win. He is angry at me for a personal matter."

it looks like MM was intentionally slowing to impede VR .. someone with no chance of a championship determining the outcome...unfortunately that is part of racing. VR lost his cool with the kick and may have sealed his run for a title. MM has the last laugh bc he accomplished his goal even though he ate the pavement.

Looks like the "shotgun in the movies" where only the guy getting shot is knocked down. Isnt there something about the first law of motion where every action has an opposite and EQUAL reaction?

Let's get this straight. ROSSI DIDNT KICK MARC. Race direction decided he didn't and from several views that Rossi's foot didn't come off the foot peg until Marc was already crashing. Rossi's only mistake was forcing Marc wide and going way off the normal line. Marc went down from his own doing.
