No, no-one was hurt ..... but they nearly were afterwards ... I gather there was almost 'fisticuffs' in the BMW garage afterwards .... the shutters were pulled down quickly and Haslam's dad (Ron, ex-racer) had to be restrained from attacking Melandri. :wacko: 

It was a pretty exciting race by all accounts. :tongue:

Ron Haslam was about to attack Melandri? Sounds like an eventful day!

'With the two BMW men fuming at the edge of the track Rea powered to the checkered line to secure the win ahead of Biaggi and Sykes.

Melandri’s rage was centered around Rea who he accused of crazy riding in the final corner and at numerous other stage of the race. But in contrast Haslam didn’t blame Rea instead his and his side of the BMW garage focused their rage on Melandri due to his overly ambitious attempted passes which he felt cost him the win.

Tempers boiled over in the BMW pitbox and despite the garage doors coming down quickly there were reports of serious arguments and Haslam’s father Ron having to be restrained when he confronted Melandri. '

I would

have thought the BMW brigade/division/team would have had a jolly nice chat to resolve their issues over a nice cup of tea, then shared some Wurthers originals, before donning their waxed cotton belstaffs, and ridden home....:laugh::laugh::laugh:

melandri's dodgy

manouvere was at the hairpin, yes it puts Haslam on the back foot for the last corner, but that doesn't absolve Rea, who skittles Haslam, who skittles Melandri, so how its Melandri fault for the actual crash i dont see....:unsure:

have to agree .....

It sure looked like Rea was the one doing the 'punting folk out of the way' on that last bend ..... Not that I'm having a go at him - it was a great race with lots of agressive moves going on :winkie:

 

If anyone missed it, you can see the whole thing here with excitable Italian commentators ....
