I Bet

Who are all these people here who cannot understand how Lorenzo is upset and are calling him all manner of unwarranted slander.

Are they all saying that if anyone on a track day or on the road, did to them what Marquez did to Lorenzo they would find them in the pits or up the road and shake hands, have a beer and swap riding stories. Yeah right.

There would be plenty of fights or worse. Look to your own selves before you condemn racers who put their careers, lives and million Euro machines at risk for your viewing pleasure.

Oh I wish......

you bunch of poofs were on track when I was racing. Would make for very easy results indeed. This is just rancid media hype because the gyro bikes have made racing quite dull sometimes. They got all the racers opinions afterwards and I seem to recall an overwhelming majority called it a last lap pass, no foul. Jorge will stay annoyed but mostly, as he stated, with himself for allowing it to happen. Besides Lorenzo turned into MM.

MM - trial by forum, judge and jury made up of a bunch of "never ridden a racing machine", never "competitively raced" and Nostro, the court room attendant who after being abused by the yellow thonged Oompah Loompah's never regained conciousness let alone any rational thought. Sad face  ....  :(

Finally, the SSTK 1000's have provided great viewing but if anyone wonders how those guys would fare on a GP machine, well the fall from grace would be a big one. Big bendy proddie bikes provide exciting racing because the mere mortals riding them make lots of mistakes  and are very inconsistent compared to Moto GP riders as well as the bikes are fairly refined big fat wobblers. GP bikes are ridden to an incredibly finite limit.

Youth...

He was not punished because he is young. He was not punished because it was great for the spectators. He was not punished because Lorenzo left the door open to a kid on a full factory Honda. So he ... was not punished. Mystery solved.

If I am a retard then...............??? I wrote "trial by forum" meaning this "forum". Not the Moto GP Race Directors who I believe made the right decision (you didn't seem to be able to work that out) and btw I think it is great that a hard core and quite controversial proper racer like Loris is on the panel. Here here! As for you.... well I think you may want to stick to your beloved SBK and don't bother commenting on race action from the "Premier Class". It bores you so why bother? Wobble wobble wobble........ haha haaa!
