Just Asking for a friend.
Don't forget the bit about kicking your opponent off his bike.

I agree with Crutchlow, he should be banned for life. Absolutely inexcusable behaviour, especially so considering it is his 3rd strike, the kid won't learn and never will. There are plenty of kids to take his place.

Krops wrote an interesting article on the subject and concluded that Fenati simply needs to mature, and a lifetime ban is probably too much. I disagree, he has shown he is a hothead who cannot control his emotions beyond that of someone who is simply immature. Would he say the same of Anthony Gobert? Fast racer or not, both of them will forever be bad eggs.

The most disturbing aspect of this incident is that it wasn't an immediate reaction in the heat of the moment. Fenati's brake lever pull was obviously premeditated.

Obviously no one here has actually raced ... "anything". If any of you had, you'd understand the emotion behind his actions ... Senna crashed out Prost on purpose in F1 and wasn't banned for life ... yet many still consider Senna the greatest F1 driver of all time (I don't but some do).

Having raced 14 years there are times when you'll lose it because of another racers actions or even actions off track and from other events (they accumulate).

I'm not justifying Fenati's retaliation but that sort of activity happens all the time in all forms of racing (heck in NASCAR it's "the norm" at 150-200 MPH), it's just less obvious and often passed of as an "accident" when it was deliberate.

I keep hoping this website matures, but after the long diatribe about Rossi (yet again by those that just seem so incredibly jealous of him ... so much so to keep ranting about him), it seems to be run by a bunch of children with ZERO racing experience and zero moderation ... may as well be Reddit.

What a wacky site this is ... can't believe someone is paying to keep this website open ... for what?

Senna had plausible deniability, and Prost had the option not to turn in at Suzuka.

Also, motorcycles are much more dangerous than cars.

Agree about the infatuation with Rossi.

Oh, and I've raced quite a bit...as has Cructhlow et al and they hated it. Unless you've raced more than Crutchlow?

Argumentum ad verecundiam was the logical flaw when you previously claimed special racing expertise, which many posters on this forum have in any case, and remains so.

What the members of this forum have long given up hope of seeing is the cessation of Rossi and his fanboys getting miffed with, and immediately proceeding to denigration of, pretty much any rider who challenges him, let alone beats him, as MM is threatening to do in the future in regard to total number of titles as well as currently beating him fairly constantly in individual races. It seems unlikely that Rossi at the age of rising 40 will ever develop sufficient maturity to give up his attempts at off-track manipulation and his involvement of that element among his fans in campaigns of vilification against his rivals. Unfortunately for him MM has sufficient maturity and strength of character to just shrug it all off, and indeed it appears to have no effect other than to provide further motivation for him. He would likely have thrown his bike down the road rather than settling for a podium as he did in the most recent race at Misano earlier in his premier class career.

Ive raced??? I still don't understand it. Racing incidents and mistakes will happen but a professional gets on with the job at hand, not lose the plot and all self control.
Probably why his current and future team dropped him like a bad habbit.
