Actually MM's move reminded me of a slow motion DP's move on Hayden in 06 only MM made it stick and didn't take out JLo.

Did it also remind you of:

-- Jacques' move on Pedrosa in '07?

-- de Puniet's move on Pedrosa in '07?

-- Simoncelli's move on Pedrosa in '11?

-- Barbera's move on Pedrosa in '12?

Pedrosa has paid his debt to society. Get over it already.

This. Whining about Pedrosa's rookie mistake at Estoril in '06 just makes the (usually American) posters making the remarks look like petty-minded fools.

Simo didn't make a move on Pedro back in 11... It was Pedro who overcooked and hit Simos rear tire...

I agree,having a brilliant 20 year old racing Moto-Gp and putting moves on established big boy stars can only be good for the sport.

All the fast guys were young and hungry/brash at some point.
I like the way MM repeatedly comes in hot on the verge of locking the front...over and over,he wants it bad.

There is no similarity. Pedrosa wasn't attempting a pass in '06. He just crashed, taking Nick with him.

That's what I thought as well.
But to to that would have taken a Rossi , in his prime , level of situational awareness.
J-Lo didn't show it and paid the price.A little harder bump and they both would have been in a pile.

At the risk of micro examining a single incident,

There are a few things that seem evident -
1. JL can go fast as stink.

2. His consistency and smoothness are a potent weapon, but may also be a weakness. If opponents have the speed to catch him, he may be more predictable than most. It sounds like others have done this sort of move before on JL.

3. I am wondering where MM found the speed or brakes to hustle up on JL's rear tire repeatedly and still find his way through the corner?

4. I am wondering if JL is a technically perfect rider who is untouchable on a fast bike with a decent start but maybe not so much of a slice and dice racer when confronted with someone of similar speed levels. If that is the case, we are in for a wonderful season of clashing riding styles. I see camps forming (DP, JL and maybe Bautista (?)) being the porpoises and VR, MM, and CC being the sharks.

Spoken for truth. I'm tired of My fellow Americans hating on DP over this.
