I'm wide awake, you however seem to be in some yellow halucinatory dreamworld
.rossi was only trying to pass dovi at that time...which he did quite easily... Then he was going to get a two for one as he closed on pedrosa too...pedrosa made a little mistake and slowed down even more for a split second...you can see pedrosas back wheel step oit on the onboard...the awesomness comes from rossi avoiding a race ending crash and taking pedro with him
Yet again you "know" what a rider's intention was do you.
As for your overhead view, the aspect of the overhead camera spreads the bikes out so they look further apart than they are. The normal aspect cameras at trackside show how close the bikes actually are.
Rossi had already run wide trying to take Dovi at the end of the lap and Dovi went straight back past him. A MISTAKE by Rossi. Then he did it again at the end of the pit sttraight. If you seriously think he was going to make turn 1 and get under Pedrosa as well you've a different concept of physics from me. Blame Pedrosa all you like but Rossi was never going to get underneath him as well. His mistake. I didn't actually criticise him for it, I just remarked at the irony of it all, that if it had been one of the others the criticisms and accusations of dangerous riding would have come thick and fast. To me it was a racing incident, but one that left him fortunate to stay on the bike.
As for Crutchlow, Rossi was alongside him at the line and past him by the time they were going along the white line that they can't cross on pit exit.. Crutchlow was on the outside and on completely the wrong line to try and outbrake anyone. Rossi got better drive off the final corner and didn't even need to draft him.
Now, I've said nothing against Rossi himself and have said he rode a good race, fought damned hard for his second place and deserved it. No problem whatsoever. What I commented on was the fawning shite that has lain dormant for two or three years suddenly erupting again with the usual comments of how if he hadn't done this that or the other he'd have beaten Lorenzo. Other riders are given no credit at all by some quarters, they're all dismissed as not in the same class. Even Agostini with his superior record is overlooked when they start screaming their "goat" claims. It's that attitude I can't stand and there are far more Rossi fans with that attitude than there are of the other riders put together.
You want to fawn all over him, that's up to you, but you're begining to slip into the more unsavoury element of his fans.
You could do worse than send a PM to the reverend Benny, repent and seek forgiveness. It may involve pledging nightly masturbation to Dovi but it will be worth it to rid yourself of the evil yellow spirit that has ingressed your soul
