Sepang MotoGP: Valentino Rossi ecstatic after thrilling win

Valentino Rossi’s Sepang MotoGP victory will live long in the memory after the Italian fought his way through from 11th to take his 46th win for Yamaha. The Italian produced one of the finest displays of his distinguished career, recovering from a dire start to overhaul early leaders Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso by the halfway stage. The Fiat Yamaha rider, who...

For Rossi to celebrate his 46th win whilst Lorenzo was taking the world title stunk of bad sportsmanship. He's a good egg as long as he's the champ, but deep inside the pain of losing is almost visible behind the smiley mask.

Lorenzo would have won this year irrespective of any other occurences.....roll on 2011!

He's just a kid

If Lorenzo's brain can't think of other ways of celebrating a win other than copying Rossi, how's he going to develop a bike? + Remember Rossi developed that bike, Lorenzo just turned up and rode it. Hence Rossi getting annoyed and saying that in public. If that wall stays up in the garage where's that bikes development going to go. Spies will be brand new to the team and Lorenzo will be playing with his toys.

Why shouldn't rossi celebrate his 46th win? At least he made time to shake hands with his opponents and didn't feel the need to run off of the podium to celebrate on his own.

greenhat what did you want him to do?
maybe leave the race win till the next time?
Did he interfere with Lorenzo?
Lets concentrate on these highly skilled riders races and let them celebrate any way they want.They have the right!

Tune in Turn off and cop out

I do turn it off when the last riders passed the finishing line but by then its too late , Lorenzos already wearing a Rossi mask and pretending to shag a donkey , actually that would be funny but putting golfballs into holes and plating flags etc IMO - i dont say you should share it - is naff contrived and annoying.

ROSSI IS MOTO GP

I KNOW EVERYBODY LIKES DIFFERANT RIDERS , BUT WHEN THIS GUY IS AWAY THE RACES ARE DULL, HE MAKES PEOPLE THAT DONT EVEN LIKE BIKES WATCH , THE THING IS THE GUY CAN AND DOES AMAZING THINGS ON A BIKE, BUT EVERYONE TAKES IT FOR GRANTED  . WHEN THIS CHAP RETIRES I THINK THE TV FIGURES WILL DROP THROUGH THE FLOOR .

Rossi

Rossi is a great rider maybe the best to ever swing a leg over a modern bike , but MotoGP is still boring when he is there , although he does his best to liven it up a bit . As i see it we as a whole (the spectators and fans) are used to the dull races we seem to get now and every tiny bit of excitement ;i.e Rossi attacking Lorenzo and Stoner at Laguna last year is hailed as the most exciting race ever , when if you go back 20 years or so it would be just what used to happen week in week out . We demand nothing from the manufacturers they dont deliver sport , they deliver adverts and personality

Sponsors not manufacturers

I am not so sure that we demand nothing form manufacturers, they build motorbikes and that they do and do it well... I don't see the issue as the manufacturers but the fact that the sport has been hijacked more and more by corporate sponsors due to the escalating costs of racing and winning and how that then translates to bike sales for manufacturers and exposure for their partner sponsor brands in return for the millions that they pour in. It is only going to get worse if they do not reduce the cost of racing or put some limits around the cost which they tried to do but wasn’t that effective. Look at Moto2 (not withstanding whether I like the idea of one engine provider, etc). I think it works well as a category because it is cheaper than the old 250's, there are over 40 on the grid (most probably too many for safety reasons) and the racing generally is a hoot. The bikes are close, but are not the same and the budgets vary from team to team which has an impact as well but still there are no huge sponsor pressures on teams and riders. In fact there are bigger name sponsors in 125. But that will change soon because the spectacle it provides will attract them next year and that too will start becoming a shit fight.

Sponsors for me have too much of a say, they are gauged about new team rider prospects and have a fair whack in the final rider make up decisions. A rider just being fast isn’t enough anymore. They need to have a profile, be marketable. Now there is a sameness about the riders, apart from one real stand out. They all roll out the standard lines at the end of the race. They are groomed, manicured and media trained to the hilt. It is a double edged sword though, because without them we certainly wouldn’t have the races beamed in to our living rooms or the circus around it which gives us the spectators greater access (less at the track though).

The only way I could see things being reined in is keeping the prototype format but reducing and capping overall team and development budgets. That would iron things out a little and lessen sponsor impact on the playing field, probably get more bikes on the Gp grid and even the racing out a little more.
