Valentino Rossi reflects on disastrous first lap exit

Valentino Rossi was fortunate to escape injury after the Italian’s hopes of claiming a home podium in Mugello were ended by a disastrous first lap collision with Spaniard Alvaro Bautista. The factory Yamaha rider was trying to gain lost ground after a sluggish start from seventh on the grid when he collided with Bautista’s Gresini Honda RC213V at just the third...

When Rossi has finished he has always beaten Crutchlow, and you can hardly say Crutchlow is barely breaking a sweat, he's probably one of the top crashers this season.

"The M1 is getting better for him"... ?

Qualified 7th & fought his way to 2nd in the 1st race... qualified 7th at the last race & his last clean finish was 4th but he's subsequently had 2 crashes... in his brief race yesterday he managed to slip to 10th before coming to grief... in what way does that constitute getting the M1 getting better for him?... he's in a worse championship position than when he was at Ducati & he's being out-qualified & squarely beaten by a satellite version of his bike & a Ducati.

Given Crashartista's history of taking out all those around him, you wonder whether he should be there at all. Shame for the viewers at home because the race would have been better with Rossi in it. As it was it was another pretty dull affair only brightened up by Seeing Lil Dani's son Merguez looking like Jimmy Hill.

The loonies are out

1)  When Rossi has finished he has always beaten Crutchlow

Cota and Le Mans spring to mind...

2)  Shame for the viewers at home because the race would have been better with Rossi in it.

Why?  Was Cota, Jerez or Le Mans?

One-eyed loonies thinking it all revolves around Rossi. He came from 7th to 2nd in Qatar and he's heralded as the saviour of Motogp for making it "exciting". In Le Mans both Marquez and Crutchlow came from 7th and 8th to finish 2 and 3rd but not a murmur of how "exciting" it was because they overtook other riders. Only seems to be exciting if Rossi does it. Funny that.

Eat my boot

Short memories also come with ageing. Was it Motegi some years back where he took Melandri's boot and ankle out.? No sympathy pal. Racing incident. Chin up Alvaro,no one's fault. Shit happens going into turn 1 at any event when you qualify midfield. 90% of the time you thread the needle,10% of the time the fickle finger of fate intervenes even in your own back yard. Converging apex's,Sun's,Moon's and stars.

The main thing is they both walked away from it. Could have been nasty.

Has to rank as a bummer for the Italian crowd on par with the Spanish crowd in Jerez back then with Gibernau. First lap/last lap.

Spot on comments & Benny here you are again weeping into your cock a leekie soup,Another point take a look at your earlier seasons postings you have been joyous at Cal beating Vale now you swap views are you a schitzo a hypocrit or just a twat ,not a rhetorical question ,On a serious note I was dissapointed to see Vale out of this race as we would have had answers to a lot of questions as his record at Mugello is superb a Yamaha won and another came third so no excuses but it wasn't to be,as for the crash tough one to call even after a second look but at least no one hurt ,as for crashers RevNuts and Rossi beating Cal when he finishes your both clutching at straws and totally wrong see bulto's posting and any view on MM crashing record not to mention Valentino's ya muppett

Depends if you want to be critical of Rossi or supportive - I choose to be supportive or Rossi and his efforts.

The only criticism I would level at him is his poor qualifying.

Then again, a front-row start doesn't guarantee a podium.
