Le Mans MotoGP: Valentino Rossi blames Simoncelli

Valentino Rossi conceded that Marco Simoncelli’s overtake during the French MotoGP race that left Dani Pedrosa with a broken left collarbone was too aggressive. Rossi has been a staunch supporter of his close pal in recent weeks as Simoncelli has come under attack for his hard riding tactics. But nine-times world champion said he had watched TV replays of the incident on...

Well said, Willie WB

If Marco Simoncelli had "offed" Pedrosa in isolation - that is, after having a clean and spotless record - he would have totally escaped any penalty. But, factor in what went before and Pedrosa's previous injury and track-record too - and one can see that they were always going to whack him with something. I agree, Dorna is "partial" rather than "impartial". The amount of GP's on the Iberian Peninsular kinda send a message, don't they - AND - Pedrosa being a Spaniard too? It isn't hard to connect the dots. Marco copped it for a variety or reasons and a "ride-through" wasn't the appropriate one - a fine or suspension was.

I note that this GixerGay person seems to think it is quite OK to lob up here on MCN and put-down Casey Stoner in particular but it could be anyone - with a series of incorrect assertions - remember - this is a person he has never met and doesn't know anything about except the absolute crap he sees coming from other "big-brains" (duh ) here. Then, poor, sensitive diddums gets all hurt and sniffy because HE gets back a corrected record and few epithets from someone else that HE has never met and doesnt know either. Oh, Gixer - talk about pots and kettles. Reap as ye shall sow. Respect our intellects and the talents of great riders and you in turn will be respected. Until then - get over it, OK?
