Check out the rubber mark on MMs left forearm. There was contact.

MM admitted in the interview after podium, that “I touch him (DP) juuuuust a little”... really an incredible chain of events, if that was enough to knock DP´s TC-system off, and effectively take him out of the championship!

just checked some pics, and the sensor appears to be on top of the swingarm, so I guess it is possible to hit it.

DP on a Honda; another Honda rider would know exactly where that sensor was located...

Pedrosa: "Management career take lightly the little things that happen and turn a blind eye to everything."

Sounds like Dani is not too pleased.

I say win or die. This was an unfortunate incident, not an example of Marquez being dangerous.

He just made a mistake. He was trying to avoid hitting Dani and still make the turn. They've all been on both sides of similar incidents. It's a shame because Dani knew he could win that race. He was biding his time and then stepped it up to finish the job. He was executing a smart strategy.

I agree. Maybe Marc takes it just a little too far. That was almost an unnecessary for himself, as well. I don't see the point in him nearly running over people in places where he can't pass. If he fixes that, he will be all but invincible. He did that same thing at Misano, to the same guy.

Pedrosa is saying some pretty stern things in the Spanish press.

Rossi jokingly says: Marquez should be banned for 3 or 4 seasons.

Haven't seen anything "Official" about the Hayden/Aspar ride for next year. Has anyone heard anything on the ground there?

He will never, ever have a leg to stand on after that stunt in 2006. EVAR!
