Is it really that big an issue that VR did not shake MM's hand?

I mean really, it was nothing more that a PR stunt by the journalist to suggest that MM shake VR's hand afterall, and VR rejects so is now being pilloried and/or called a petulant child (and no doubt it looks like it).

it is not that long ago where VR himself tried a similar PR stunt to try to appease another rider and improve his public perception when he went to the pit of Stoner after he had knocked Stoner down, only to have his PR attempt fall flat when CS products the ambition outweigh talent comment.

Sure, to me he looks a petulant child but as someone who absolutely enjoyed CS' very public rebuff of the PR stunt, I am not going to be to critical although I do recognise (and kind of laugh at) his hypocrisy

Time, place .............. and a media conference when a journalist asks is not the time or place

The media love all the VR/MM feuding because of the ratings it brings in. Marc is playing Rossi like a fiddle. He knew VR wouldnt shake his hand before he extended it to him, going off his body language. I don think Marc cares at all about making peace either. To the media Marc plays up the 'young nice guy champion' trying to 'make peace' with his 'idol', when Rossi doesn't shake hands it hurts Rossi's public image and improves Marc's. Making Rossi appear bitter, ungracious and grudge holding.

Marc is a better rider than Rossi, he is also better at mind games too seizing yet another opportunity to lower Rossi's public image.

Surely no one can hand out tissues and hold an ipad the way Uccio can??..and the way that dude is grabbing a handful of Rossi's arse is nauseating.

They are just all very close and do things a little differently in that pit box, the gentle cupping of the anointed ones buttocks is just a gesture of endearment.

And this little prick want to shake hands? Wow. Talk about a 2 face shit. If Vale ever shakes hands or trust this guy again, I stop watching.
Nope Rossi has fucked more than a few people over in the past in his pursuit of glory, he should just suck it up and be a man, shake his hand and be done with it.

No, ever since Jeremy Burgess walked in on Valentino sneakily receiving a rusty trombone from Uccio that kind of behaviour has been contractually outlawed by Yamaha during race and testing weekends.
