A second a lap faster and catching up 9 seconds is quite a lot in motogp though, suggesting Rossi had no chance of staying in front of him, and also should have been aware from his pitboard, dash messages or whatever that MM was closing on him fairly quickly.

Does this mean Rossi should have conceded the corner to MM?. Not imo, but this is being argued by some in regard to Lorenzo who had kept Dovi and Dani behind him for a number of laps in the reverse circumstance, and the inconsistency in the attitudes of many and from RD in particular is what is being argued.
I have no interest in the consistency in the attitudes of others in the forum. My only point is that Rossi was 8/10ths slower and not 4 seconds (or painfully slow) as is being bandied about multiple times.

9 tenths in a situation where MM had caught up 9 seconds in 12 laps while constantly passing other riders with Rossi pretty much out on his own on a clear track.

Not 4 seconds a lap true as I actually agreed, but equivalent to a win by at least 25 seconds over whole race distance, an eon in motogp terms particularly for someone on a factory Yamaha who has a reputation for wet/mixed condition riding, so you don't have much to be riled about.

(EDIT MM was actually over 17 seconds ahead of Rossi at the end of lap 6 which is rather close to 3 seconds a lap, so I am afraid you are quibbling).

Another thing, maybe these bikes are to powerful, cut the hp output to 200 and a trained monkey could ride them, certainly be more exciting as there wouldn't be the bitching their is now.
Well the most exciting form of racing is 600cc racing.

I didn’t understand a single word of that, but would you like some cheese with that whine?

If he didn’t have such pathetic race tactics and tried to actually race, he would be chasing his teammate instead of getting a tow off inferior bikes.
As we just saw, Its an eventual recipe for disaster.
The only thing heroic about Captain CTE is that he can work through the wrist pain to endorse those Repsol checks.
Are they even checks anymore, or does Honda pay him in gift cards?
I've never thought it was a case of being chickenshit at all. Nobody who goes through that much pain and suffering and multiple surgeries and rehab and races in pain can be called cowardly.

Pedrosa is a really talented racer who is limited by his small size. To really battle and slice and dice a rider has to have great control of the brakes, and Pedrosa, as is well known, can never get enough heat into the front tire, or enough weight transfer towards the front, in order to brake like Dovi or MM, so out of necessity he adapts his riding style and strategy to make use of his strengths and compensate for his lack of mass.

The irony is that despite Honda perhaps devising the 800 formula with him in mind or more likely hiring him because they thought he fitted their formula, Dani was probably best on a 990.

That sounds better when you post it from the Kurryfart account.
