Andrea Iannone doubts Marc Marquez rivalry in 2013

Italian Andrea Iannone doubts he will be able to renew his rivalry with fellow MotoGP rookie Marc Marquez in the 2013 world championship. Iannone and Marquez had some memorable battles in the Moto2 class in 2011 and 2012, but both are preparing for very different challenges in their first MotoGP season. Iannone is part of Ducati’s bid to bounce back from a...

Big brain #2 says..

Was a great ride by rossi..apart from when he "cracked" in the corkscrew..and would have taken both himself and another rider out..if that rider had not had the reflexes and anticipation to remove himself from the racing line with some rapidity to retrieve the situation

stoner said..he elected to put his bike in the dirt rather than into valentino, which he could easily have done. it was entirely within stoner's volition that both bikes didn't go down.

Strip away the flowery bullshit and there is NO doubt as to meaning.

We know what your post implies and don't need you to spell anything out thanks..you're making the same excuses as every other orange ponce.

Once again you use back flipping gymnastics to back track, without realising the damage it does to your credibility. You're not as smart as you like to make out, are you?

About par for the course for a Stoner fanboy.

"cracking"

Not being a digital native I don't go for smilies wosi. I put "cracking" in inverted commas in reply to a post which had used the term, to imply some irony, a concept with which you would seem unfamiliar.

It was a hard fought race , rossi knew he would lose if stoner got out of the corkscrew ahead, he would have pulled too much advantage in that part of the track for rossi to come back at him, so he desperately tried to stay ahead and lost control of the bike. I actually don't think that is cracking to be honest, it is having a lose by trying too hard, which with a combination of admirable skill and some luck came off for him.

Are the laws of physics different in wosiworld by the way? Does the good guy always stay upright if he t-bones the black hat guy at a significant velocity?

You offering to administrate The MCN Regular Posters League, when it opens eddl?..seeing as Jamie's done one.

Silly me doohanfan..removing "cracking" alters the whole meaning of what you wrote.

What a fkin plum.

t-boning

VFR agrees ( although surely he can't approve of 90 degree V engines unless he is a heretic) so you must be right wosi.

I was actually quite good at physics once, but that was a long time ago, so perhaps you can explain how valentino wouldn't have t-boned stoner when re-entering the track from a position not on it at a vector in the vicinity of 90 degrees if stoner had maintained his position on the track on the racing line.

I have obviously realised for some time that Aristotlean logic does not apply  in wosiworld, but the physics of that realm begin to interest me.  Obviously non-Euclidean and non-linear.

Plain English Pal?..I honestly can't be arsed.

We all know what happened at Laguna..Stoner got a lesson in racecraft and didn't take it onboard.

Plain English Wosi

You can be an utter knob at times - like that last racecraft comment

You can argue all you like, just for the sake of it, to try and wind people up or just to be plain contrary, but you know as well as anyone else with half a brain, that Rossi over did it at the top of the corkscrew. He went in too fast and didnt make the corner, he couldn't keep it on the track. He went off. He was fortunate that it was an S bend not a normal bend which enabled him to rejoin the track. He was fortunate it was hardcore not soft gravel at that point which kept the bike upright. In rejoining the track he did so right in front of Stoner and forced him to swerve hard to avoid a collision. I doubt he deliberately rejoined in front of Stoner like that as he was not really in control and had to gather it up when he got back on tarmac. But, he made a mistale through pushing into the corner too hard, went off and could have taken them both out. That's what happened - watch it again.

Stoner then made his mistake later but was unlucky in that where he went off it was deep gravel which pulled the bike over. He could have elected to have gone up the inside and used Rossi as a berm though couldn't he? He never accused Rossi of brake checking him and just simply said it was his own mistake.

One mistake each, one got lucky and got away with his, the other didn't.

Racecaft ffs  -  muppet.

You sound just like Casey, Bulto?

Whine, snivel - He's so lucky - blub, pffft.

It was one of the finest displays of controlled agression to keep a faster bike at bay..and it did Stoners head in and brought his champoinship challenge crashing down.

The LS defeat and tumbling out of the lead of the next two races, with Rossi in 2nd & closing for another battle freaked him out. It was burned into his soul and never left him.

Everything Stoner said or did thereafter was defined by those three races..It made him very, very unhappy and eventually retired him.
