Debate rages over Simoncelli move that took out Pedrosa

Marco Simoncelli’s reputation as the bad boy of MotoGP rose to new heights after he was involved in a collision with Pedrosa that left the luckless and injury prone Spaniard with a broken right collarbone. Simoncelli and Pedrosa had just exchanged overtakes at Turn 6 when the factory Honda duo tangled on lap 18 of the Le Mans MotoGP while jostling...

as aoyama showed in his 250 title...

...to race with Simoncelli you need to be a warrior and give as good as you get, bang frames or whatever it takes...one needs to stand their ground.

i would like to see Aoyama's form to progress and eventually get on a factory bike, to show everyone how to race against a bully like Simoncelli.

I, for one, have no recollection of 'Aaron Sligth' - 'Sligth'? - it is a fabulous name nonetheless, - is he from the shires? - one of the hobbits perchance? :mellow:

not sure who Simon Crafer is either

but I have heard of Simon Crafar and Aaron Slight.

I think instead of losing your cool and taking my comments out of context, you need to understand why they were made in the first place.

There is a growing number of people who think nostrodamus is full of shit and can't understand why he thinks he has the right to call anybody who does not share his exact opinion in everything, a moron. After hearing about his (ha ha) racing career, I still have no idea why this is. Infact, judging by the blinding arrogance demonstrated by nostrodamus, I wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that he is infact a policeman. Would seem to fit rather nicely dontcha think.

So pull ya head in v2

weskit, how much racing have you done?

fair enough

I think what I was trying to say is that its not the same as racing in Europe. Afterall a lot of the riders you mention moved to the UK/Europe in order to further their careers.

Debate on the track!

So we know motorcycles are more dangerous than cars, racing them more so. Last year Lorenzo watched the Isle of Man TT, and described them as 'crazy'. It is good to hear Lorenzo and Stoner crying about Simoncelli and Rossi, as it reveals they are maybe too scared to continue in MotoGP. Had it been Rossi on the inside instead of Pedrosa, in a 'battle' with Simoncelli, they would have been banging fairings. But poor Dani, fast but gentle, backed off, stood the bike up and had his front wheel flicked. Had he throttled into his line, Simoncelli would have been in the dirt and at worst Dani would have low sided. It takes serious nerve to even do what Dani does, but some have a higher level at which their buttocks clench. I'm heading for the NW200 on Saturday, the prep for the TT, 'ultimate level of motorsport in the world' - Murray Walker. MotoGP is less ultimate, and I think Lorenzo and Stoner are too scared by it. Surprising, by how frequently we have seen them hitting the dirt in single vehicle accidents, but maybe the recollection of the pain of this is why they have lost their nerve! I give them three options: 1) Do some Irish / IoM road racing and have the xxxx really scared out of you, then Simoncelli won't even phase you, 2) Move to F1 with the preened and polished social set with airbags, etc, 3) Stop whining and go take the battle to Rossi and Simoncelli on the track!!!

That clip is uncanny in similarity! Let's hear if Lorenzo could talk us through 2010/11 in light of 2005?
