Penalty points for dangerous riding in MotoGP from 2013

Dangerous and aggressive riding will be dealt with by a new penalty points system that will be introduced across all three classes in the MotoGP world championship from next season. Points will be awarded between one and 10 depending on the severity of the offence and if a rider accumulates 10 points then he is immediately banned for one race. Any rider...

Capirossi/Harada was absolutely blatant.Loris even admitted it later did he not, but I think you know bulto was referring to Rossi/Gibernau.
I still have my suspicions about you 2....

You're descending into paranoia...

You can take your pick from:

Capirossi/Harada

Rossi/Gibernau

Marquez/Luthi at Qatar this year when MM almost ran him off the track at the end of the straight, which was no accident / misjudgement, it was deliberate.

Rossi/Lorenzo at Motegi when Rossi veered across him under the bridge

Rossi actually took around 4 riders out on the first lap a few years ago, Edwards being one of them, Le Mans possibly, when he started from low on the grid and made a Banzai move that didn't work. There wouldn't be enough points for that under the new rules........

Nah just suspicious as I said.See you are havin another dig now.
Rossi is not renowned as a dangerous rider just incase you did not know.
Oh you forgot to say who you were referring to the first time by the way.I am intrigued to know!

@Velopete the riders know what potential lies ahead when they get on these bikes. These are 200mph machines not to mention how much they cost, they are not going to intentionally write the bike off or themselves. They are professionals and know what they are doing. Obviously its going to get abit physical at times i just thought thats all part of the package. After all it is competitive racing... And fox hunting? I don't watch racing to see people die! I watch it because its exciting (well its meant to be) but with this rule I feel it's going to make it less exciting. Think you should be watching bowls instead, less dangerous, i reckon that'll be right up your street.

Yeah..What next ?

Sterilize it, GP, that is. At one stage a backer could sit on the fence and slag off an opponent. Those days are apparently gone.

Scratch#1 in place by virtue of decree.

On the one hand the power's that be want to restore  the series by virtue of spectacle. On the other hand they want to punish anyone inadvertendly  contributing to the spectacle.

Someone saw this state of play coming and went fishing.

Afterthought,,,, Combined rider/bike mass post race... Next Croc

You could add Stoner barging Bautista out of the way at Mugello too, while he was trying to claw back places after running in to the gravel at turn 1. I assume these rules would also include Casey's tantrums involving De Puniet at Le Mans last season and Abraham at Mugello in testing. I think the Lorenzo/Rossi incident at Motegi in 2010 was a case of hard riding from both riders, Lorenzo dishing it out as good as Rossi did. If I'm honest, I'm not sure how I feel about this ruling. I'm all for dangerous riding being stamped out, but as long as it doesn't take anything away from the spectacle of the sport. Potentially it's a difficult one to judge too; what one man calls dangerous riding another man claims will add to the excitement. Simoncelli is a prime example.

I never saw that as a deliberate act of shoving someone out of the way. There was room and he was virtually level with Bautista who then turned further in, so they touched. No-one's fault I thought, although Stoner did apologise to Bautista afterwards.

The de Puniet incident was blown out of all proportion with what was a tap on the shoulder being described as anything from a punch to a shove. De Puniet could have caused a monumental crash dawdling on the racing line on the exit of a seriously fast corner.

One that was a contender for the new points system was Stoner's weave towards Petuccini (spelling??) in Mugello practise. Not dangerous, but regardless of the frustration he felt, it was unecessary and a couple of points would ensure that it didn't happen again.

Marquez points

Wonder why they brought that rule in this year? Hope he doesn't kill anyone I care about.

A little bit of creative accounting there my friend - the way I saw it was after 3 failed attempts to pass his frustration got the better of him.   Otherwise why apologize.  Probably would have lost points for that under this new ruling.
