Are you sure you are 60 yrs old like your profile said? For a 60 yr old, you sound like a teenager fan boy in the original post and this one.

Dude - denial has no age limits. Same for cult-of-personality obsession. Just ask any one of a billion born-again loonies.

Here is a little exercise you can do for yourself and it will disprove your theory (I've actually done this and it all checks out).

Go to the MotoGP website, download the 'analysis by lap' race data .pdf for the 2015 Valencia race.

Lorenzo, Marquez and Pedrosa ALL lapped faster than Rossi did on every single lap of the Valencia GP.

Rossi, all credit to him did an admirable job from going from the back fo the field to 4th (whether Petrucci or others let went easy on him and let him through without too much of a fight or not), seriously. Made the hairs on my back stand up, was proper awesome and riding to save his life. Kudos.

But the actual laptime data shows that even if he had started in 4th position.... He still would have finished in 4th based on the laptimes... the only difference would have been how far he finished behind the front 3 leaders.

The only argument is 'did Marc go easy' on Lorenzo to allow him to win??? Its not something you can prove or disprove, nor against the rules. Regardless.... if the rider truly deserves to win the championship its because he is the best and strongest rider and will beat anyone who stands in his way to oppose him.

If Rossi was the fastest and best rider who deserved to win, then he would have been lapping faster than the 3 who finished before him that day. IF that was the case (it wasn't) then you could argue the start at the rear of the pack at Valencia cost him the win but clearly not the case based on laptimes that day.

Now if Marc went easy or not on Lorenzo... well thats just to bad. The strongest rider should decide the championship by winning and being the strongest.
Rossi going all area 51 (playing mind games) and putting Marc on the spot like he did in the PI press conference (and comments he made in the Italian media about Marc lying about putting Rossi posters on his wall as a child...lol) backfired.

When you are the strongest rider... then you make the calls. Either Marc or Lorenzo was stronger that day, either way you look at it Rossi wasn't the strongest and because of that he couldn't claim the title. If he was the strongest he would have wiped the floor with Lorenzo and Marc at PI, Sepang and Valencia...

You cant blame other riders for the fact you cannot beat them.
Your logic is flawed. Since Rossi started at the back of the grid, his laptimes would've been affected by all the slower riders he was stuck behind and having to safely overtake (Valencia can be difficult for overtaking). By the time he made his way up to 4th position, he would've suffered from tire degradation. His laptimes do not prove that he would not have been faster if he had a decent starting position and was with the front runners.

Can't say you're a typical Brit. All the ones I've known are capable of making sensible arguments. You're just throwing around random words like someone overdosing on ketamine.

Without trying to be racist, I expect 996 is a foreigner who thinks we should be changed just because we can. I'm getting fed up with the attitudes of minorities in this country who slag off all "Britishness" in their thoughts and deeds, they are the imports not us.
