The racer director didn't kill Simo. Simo was kill by no ones fault, it happens.

You realize that you're 0-3 on your Pedrosa predictions (hopes?) of doom, right?
Drama queen.

I'd say no on the blades...

You want the race director to ban passing from the inside ??

MM's pass was risky, but not illegal. Even JLo admits he left the door open. Why he did that is beyond me, but surely even those guys can make mistakes. He may now need to re-evaluate his tactics for close racing situations.

Where to draw the line has to be done case by case, cos they're all different, but here I think no penalty points was correct. JLo made a mistake, and MM took advantage of it. (Doesn't mean MM won't earn a few points later on this season...)

Wonder what RD will do to Odendaal after he just pushed Torres into the grass, causing him to crash in moto2 fp3. It was a very Marquez move: Get inside, and move out to the line, leaving him nowhere to go.

Just for clarity: I'm referring to MM in moto2 and his habits there, not last race MM who went for the jugular. Which was hard racing, and not 93's smartest move. He just set a precedent, and if anyone nerfs him into the weeds, he's not got a leg to stand on.



I don't like 99, but he's spot on with Capirossi having no place in deciding rider conduct at all. Carmine made a bad choice in him. If you're gonna have a minister of ethics, maybe you ought to pick a guy who isn't morally bankrupt, caught on film demonstrating it.

Confusion reigns supreme

How is it that the Duc slows down and moves up the charts?

1 93 Marc MARQUEZ SPA Repsol Honda Team Honda 302.0 1'33.600
2 99 Jorge LORENZO SPA Yamaha Factory Racing Yamaha 305.1 1'34.099 0.499 / 0.499
3 26 Dani PEDROSA SPA Repsol Honda Team Honda 304.0 1'34.182 0.582 / 0.083
4 69 Nicky HAYDEN USA Ducati Team Ducati 296.6 1'34.426 0.826 / 0.244
5 35 Cal CRUTCHLOW GBR Monster Yamaha Tech 3 Yamaha 300.9 1'34.467 0.867 / 0.041
6 4 Andrea DOVIZIOSO ITA Ducati Team Ducati 299.5 1'34.476 0.876 / 0.009

Nicky is a full 10k off speed but in #4?!?!? Something's working.

Hopefully Krop, Bootlace, Mdubya or someone can explain? It seems Rossi & Co lost the plot in FP3 and it remained that way in Q1 & Q2. Even Cal seemed to go backwards. It seems strange both teams/bikes lost form so suddenly.

My guess is that Rossi gets better as the temperature goes up. It is looking more like FP2 yesterday was the anomaly...

DP had a crash in the first half of the session and had to go out on the 2nd bike. Rossi has to be getting bummed.

Marquez timed his chicane crash better than Pedrosa, doing it in FP4 instead of middle of Q2. Second row start in a dry race won't be so good, especially if Marquez pulls out a 1.33 early on.

At this point it's looking more like Rossi's goal should be to beat Crutchlow; Lorenzo is on another level.

Super Sic died to a low side that he was tried heroically to save, race direction had nothing to do with it. All of the contact was AFTER he lost the front un-aided.

No one ever said racing was safe, considering I put on about $1,300 in safty gear to drive down the fucking road, blaming race direction for Simoncelli's death a false position.

Also Crutchlow crashed quite hard on the last FP. Italian commentators were really worried in seeing him getting back on the bike that soon, since he is used to underestimate consequences. One even said that if he was his bigger brother he would not let him go back on circuit for the remaining time of FP. Eventually they relaxed a little bit since he did start to put on good laps. Signs of a healthy (and tough) guy...
