people can say what they want about that but that just looked like hit hit the curbing. I remember it from last year but didin't really look at it over and over. Now looking at it over and over it was a honest mistake not like he was trying to pass on the inside more like he hit the curbing and the bike took out nicky in the process.

I agree completely about the curbing... I also think in that situation he was forced on the curbing cause he hit the turn with 2 much speed and had no buisness on Nicky's inside. Once front tire hit the curbing..... it upset the front end traction, and woooop..... down he goes. The end result is he take the points leader Nicky out of the race when he was in 3rd place in the race too. Also a huge embarassment for Honda's top team and Repsol

Lil P should have never been there. He was too aggresive and it was a mistake. Had Nicky not been there.....Lil P would have never hit the curbing and took a better line. But sht happens ;-)

he had to be on it. What was he supposed to do let off?? it's motogp you don't have time to look back and see how far the guy is behind you (though fabien foret used to always look back in world supersport) . all yo ucan do is haul . looks to me a though he had a helluva a rythmym and just went in faster than hayden. hit the curbing lost the front and collected nicky.

Yes. You can't just run over people bro. Don't you understand what what happened? R you a t-dayer or have you actually ever raced?
Pedrosa of course didn't mean to take out Hayden but no matter what pace your on.... you don't stuff on the inside of someone unless you clearly and safely have him. You can see he knew he was comming in hot and was trail braking right before he hit the inside. I don't think he was trying to pass hayden right there. But usually a sane racer will submit when they know they are beat, then fight back ASAP. Lil P should have towed in behind Hayden who was almost at mid corner already..... and if he had a chance to pass., take up the opportunity on another lap. This isn't 20 seconds left in the 4 quarter at the 3 yard line, being 6 points under.

Lil P is a top pro. We can only judge by what we see. He is the expert. In that race there were more imortant factors involved. The real fight then was with Rossi and Hayden. Hayden was leading in points remember. Lil P is his team mate bro and had no buisness up Hayden's fight for the championship. The situation could be argued different if it were different racers involved. I still say the facts remain about stuffing. Thats how bad accidents happen. I've seen it in my face in races more than once. I can man up and admit that I have made someone crash by making the mistake cutting someone off up the inside. But that dude had No buisness taking the wild line he took when I was clearly going to get him. But hey.... thats racing. P187 you could argue with a grasshopper.... so whether you agree or not. This tangent is over with me.

recall, motegi 06 with #69.. who did the exact same rookie mistake... clutch problems still haunt hrc...

furthermore, this proves there is no favoritism in the repsol camp like most americans like to believe... now that they are both co-riders, they both are testing parts..

Casey Stoner is the only one I know of for sure who doesn't use launch control. He still does it old school.

So, we are all speculating on the problem as Honda and Dani only said there was an 'issue' with the bike. Some people are just having fun with it, so?


http://www.crash.net/motorsport/moto...-0/whoops.html
"As the Spaniard released the clutch, his RC212V reared straight up onto its back wheel - presumably due to a launch control failure - and was almost vertical before Pedrosa, with feet off the pegs, lost control and fell to his left."


So i'm still wondering why your speculation makes you feel entitled to come in and all over 2 threads and call everybody stupid with a 50cc-ish type hissy fit?

Meds need adjusting? Not enough ventilation when working with the chemicals?
