I can't fathom that he will participate any further this weekend.

Get over it. Marquez is universal hated everywhere in the world and not only by Rossi fans but also Lorenzo, Dovi, Espargaro, Vinales fans etc because he's a dirty rider with zero charisma. Who else get booed on home soil.

Somewhat oddly, and I am sure entirely coincidentally, pretty much every rider over the last 20 odd years who has ever rivalled, and particularly beaten, Rossi has turned out to be a rider of low character deserving of being booed, spat on, sent back to WSBK etc. When it was Stoner his character defect was the opposite of MM’s, he was widely condemned by the same fans for not liking hard racing.

Some might draw the conclusion that Rossi fans are completely hypocritical.

I don't want to open old discussions, especially with everything that happened with Michele, (which brought home just how much these guys risk every time they go out on track), but Marc certainly isn't devoid of Charisma, I've seen him on plenty of shows where he was the life and soul, even when not speaking in his mother tongue.
I don't consider him deliberately dirty, but he has made mistakes through over enthusiasm that have cost other riders points.
Him being booed is the same reason Casey got booed, because of Vale.
And on the subject of Vale, if you ever want a pristine example of deliberate dirty riding, then look no further than Sepang 15.

Sorry for going off topic, this should be about Mugello, so I'm happy to discuss in another, more appropriate, thread.

Edited to add apologies for repeating what Michael said, he beat me to the draw and, as always, was infinitely better at it than me.

Pirro's injuries, as of now, seem to be:


Commotional head injury
Right shoulder dislocation (fixed in the medical center already).
Thoracic trauma
Lumbar trauma


Horrific crash. Let's hope he'll be alright

Impossible to know, given the custom nature of the machinery and tyres, but I guess some rough measure could be made by looking at the performance of the Bridgestones at Valencia 15, then the Michelins the next day when the test commenced. IIRC, the Michelins were a little quicker.

Glad I didnít see it. Vague terminology, several of those things could be serious, but hopefully are not.

I think he has shown signs of both being thoughtful and having a sense of humour, and I wasnít a fan back in his Murder Marc days.

I am a bike racing fan, and his riding is sufficiently charismatic for me in any case, just as Stonerís was.

A good point, if so many MotoGP riders were breaking records at every track. Fact remains, it was on the newly resurfaced track where there was a spike of record breaking laps.
