Testing, hilarious! Did you see the the first race. The top Yamaha finished 7/10ths off the winner. Now Iím no mathmetizer, but that is way less than a 1/10th per lap. In sketchy conditions in Argentina Matquezís brilliance in those conditions made him a second faster than anyone, not because the Yamaha is a second slower.

Rossi 100% cannot say he didnít see Marquez on his inside at Argentina. They were at least even before contact and Rossi made the choice not to concede . He was at least 50% at fault for his crash. He knew Marquez was there and knew how much faster per lap he was, saw him on his inside and refused to be block passed. How many crashes over the years would he have seen if the rider getting passed refused to pick their bike up and concede but just keep the line they are on and intersect with the rider performing the block pass.

Each must have known where the other was close to when contact occurred, my point was that both chose different lines and I doubt either chose those lines with any expectation of contact.

The problem with these 2 riders, as a non- Rossi hater in J4rn0 said back in 2015, is that Rossi and MM are riders with the same attitude. To me, both have the ingrained expectation that other riders will concede to them

If they had been racing for a podium or the win on the last lap I can see not conceding anything, but Rossi knew that Marquez was over a second faster than him but decided to engage that much faster rider . It being Marquez made all he difference in the world. He took an extra wide entrance knowing Marquez would take it . In a way, Marc got suckered into being the fall guy.

Yes. Marquez is Rossi on steroids.

I donít disagree, but as Gaz said there is actually not really any obligation for Rossi to concede, and MM was naive if he expected him to do so. But sure Rossi could have easily avoided collision, more easily than MM I would have thought when they were close to the point of contact.

I do doubt the conjecture Rossi lured him into the incident in this the 3rd race of the season, the risk of a collision applies to him as well as proved to be the case.

I believe that rossi is totally capable of such stupidity. I dont know whether at times its the yellow mist decending and he is incapable of seeing the possible consequences of his actions

Or

Whether it is what many used to refer to as his "racecraft". He is attempting to lure Marquez into an off track "intrigue", totally driven by his own paranoia .... why would his delusional tactics not extend to the track.

rossi has such numbers of supporters that he feels that is the demographic by which he is judged. The problem is those bind judges are too idiotic to pull him up on his actions. Instead they prefer to manipulate facts to suit their judgement that rossi is ...... divine.

So he is morally bancrupt enough to do almost anything. And assume its his divine right.

Thing is Mike, avoiding contact also voids Race Direction's supposed ability to take action under the "old" rules, and apparently the "new" ones as well, which Lorenzo pointed out. Not only that, but apparently if the lead rider "leaves the door wide open" he is subject to overtake (Kropo)...though this norm does not apply to Rossi at Argentina.

Special attention to the highlighted words please. Very nicely spin job I'd day:


Quote:
Jack Miller dived up the inside of Jorge Lorenzo, after the factory Ducati rider left the door WIDE open at Turn 1. Lorenzo, going for a very late apex, found Miller on his line, and was forced to stand the bike up. "Things didn't change so much, no?" the Spaniard grumbled after the race. "If I don't pick up the bike, I crash. So if the rider doesn't impact you or you don't crash, they don't do nothing." David Emmett
Shit, it was practically Lorenzo's fault. Emmett would not use such suggestive language to scrutinize Rossi "leaving the door wide open" and "grumbling" about it after the race.

I like Miller, and I'm sure Gaz will jump to his rescue, but the point I'm highlighting is that the norms of racing, such as leaving the door wide open seems to only apply to others, not never Rossi.

Itís being reported that Vinales has forced Forcada out and Bradley Smiths crew chief Esteban Garcia will be his replacement and Rossi will replace Galbasura with Forcada.

Forcada is very good and worked with Stoner too at LCR. I don't know much about Garcia.

I remember Burgess telling Kropotkin flat out that Forcada was "doing a better job" than Burgess.
