There's really nothing to criticize today, just about every successful rider crashes as a rookie in MotoGP.

Criticism for Simoncelli was based on his deliberate barging and on frequent crashing well into his second year in MotoGP. Too soon to tell how similar #58 and #93 will be.

It was great having Spies in the commentator box to share his rider's viewpoints, especially with the Bautista-Rossi incident.
I'm surprised to see MM take himself out all by his lonesome like that. At least he didn't take DP with him. I think, in part he was reacting to pressure from Cal as much as from DP.
Damn, Jorge was impressive. It's clear, only a perfect race will take the win in MotoGP this year. He let DP know from the start not to mess with him.

Lorenzo also apologized for the pass that both riders thought risky and over-aggressive. Still, since it wasn't decided by tenths of a second, a hard early pass didn't have too much bearing on the results.

Thought it was a great race and Lorenzo put on another clinical! Damn he is a machine!

But after that 1st lap pass he did on Danny I don't want to hear him complain about rough riding again!

To fast-track that 'patina' look, you can 'distress' old furniture. It is a process which involves beating the crap out of it until it's just right. Sound familiar?

I was surprised to see Marquez throw away an easy 2nd place finish. Lorenzo was impressive though and seemed to put down the lap times easily today and with ruthless efficiency.

Well, is the second Yamaha cursed now or what? This was one of Rossi's better chances for a strong race and he didn't even get a lap in. Spies probably can't help but chuckle at Rossi's season getting worse every race.

Bautista is way behind Rossi on exit:



Now Bautista starts to move to quickly to the right, comparing to other riders positions on track this is evident:



Then they make contact



For me, that was still a dumb and dangerous move, and not because it was Rossi that he collided with, but because he altered his line suddenly, without being aware of the others, and it´s just a few corners from the start, so you can´t expect you´re not close to anybody. Beyond me, if he escapes at least a warning from this.

Just my 0.02. But Megadeth´s new album “Super Collider” is probably named after Alvaro...

I had a guy run into me in a very similar manner, except we were both on 250 Ducatis running in a vintage race at little Talledega.
I don't know if that guy and AB are both blind in one eye or what, but even though the 1st contact was on my leg with his front wheel and I had seen him coming in before contact, he blamed me and insisted I had hit him. How ?
Happens in the minors and the majors.

Question

SRSLY?

“Regarding the incident between Valentino Rossi (ITA) and Alvaro Bautista (ESP) in the MotoGP race of Mugello on 2 June. The Race Direction has reviewed the incident and held a hearing with both riders where all available evidence was reviewed. Based on this evidence the Race Direction decision is that it was a racing incident and no further action will be taken.”

Looked to me that Jlo had the bike setup perfect.

MM's crash shows me that dani is the better rider. He was, and has been pushing too hard.

Go Cal.

I don't doubt AB didn't see VR but, I think AB assumed he had a gap/clear track and could move rapidly across the track where he wanted. I think the more thoughtful racer would have doubts that there would be such openness on the track right at the start when he was side-side with others just moments before the collision make his moves more carefully. This is why the fault would lie with AB IMO.

So, if they found AB at fault, they dock him 10 championship points? Big deal, he aint never gonna win it anyway.

Agreed. Racing incident and should not have happened with anybody, not just Rossi. AB just looked like he assumed the track was clear.

Not the first time AB is there, when someone's race ends, before it even properly began.

Maybe this was not as blatantly ape behaviour as when he took out JLo, but this proved once again, that he does not always think very hard, what he's doing.

Really? We knew he was going to throw it down in a race, just a matter of when.
