Meh I think it was his 2 mates Para and Noid. .... Its the boppers usual behaviour ..... have an incoherent rant and subsequent loss of any semblance of logic when their self chanted belief comes to a negative conclusion for them. Social media bopper meltdowns commenced a millisecond after rossi lost traction and was in full "berko-mode" before he'd even stopped spinning to a stop.

If you were any more dense you’d have to change your name to iridium

Suzuki, they are coming.....
I too thought he had MM covered, and in fact was expecting MM to crash trying to bridge the gap as I said.

Did I see Rossi shoving an official? With the changes to schedule replay/rewind was fucked up. Did I see it out of context? If not, very uncool from VR.

The guy was trying to take a selfie when Rossi stopped to wave at the fans, and 46 was in no mood for a selfie , so Rossi shoved the guy away. Understandable after the spill.

Cool. Some context. I only half thought I saw it. Still though....

He actually shoved 2 of them, one to the side of the head and one to the stomach area but as Aw Mang says below, context is everything.

For mine, it was no different to when he 'kicked' that woman who walked in front of his scooter last year (or the year before) when they got way to close to his personal space at a time when really, they needed to give room.

Sure these guys were marshalls but at the same time, for that very reason they should know better (IMO).

Agree.

For a while mid race there was possibility of Yamaha locking out the podium.

Wow, what a start by Rossi. It made me think of Lorenzo's amazing launches when he was riding the M1, taking the hole shot and putting it to good use setting a leading pace.
Then there were those metronomic laps Rossi starting knocking out like he was well inside his comfort zone. Have they fixed the M1? With Mavs win still fresh I couldn't help but wonder if some significant progress has been made in the Yamaha garage. Marquez was making his way through the pack but as he got closer to Rossi the gap seemed to exponentially decay making me think that Rossi was in control of this one and the rider who was more outside of their comfort zone might be Marquez. Was the sweetness of putting one over Marc at Sepang giving Rossi some kind of extra motivation? At this stage it wouldn't have surprised me to see Marquez throwing it down the road with nothing to lose. Part of me wanted an epic to and fro showdown between two of the biggest names in the sport but another part of me was glad that there could be no questionable grey areas with regards to the outcome. Its a shame really because if Rossi hung on and managed a victory I would have bet that he may have even shaken Marcs hand from the top step.
