I suppose for those who wear the yellow tinted fan goggles, every time Marc is about to pass Rossi like he's standing still, the perception is that "Marc is following Rossi". Do those goggles also make it appear after the race that Rossi is on top of the podium and Marquez is sitting in his camper?

I'm sure you don't own a pair of yellow tinted googles, so tell me what you saw during Q2 at Silverstone? Was that not Marquez waiting around for a tow? Or was that just a hologram for yellow tinted google viewers?

Agree, the media love blowing anything to do with Marc or Vale well up and out of proportion. The contrast of underlying tones between the Repsol and Yamaha press interviews afterwards, complete with loaded questions about 'penalties' really made me laugh.

BTM Kesh, check your PM Box before you give me an inferiority complex.

I am in the US and didn’t see this “incident”, which by most accounts doesn’t seem to have been an attempt at a tow, but I have definitely seen MM seek a tow from Rossi earlier this year, probably at Silverstone as you say..

They don’t like each other much and each likes needling the other. I actually don’t have much problem with Rossi’s general comportment this year, and don’t mind if he still has some vinegar in him.

Might even be partly MM’s fault, but I don’t think the current Honda is all that great a bike. Easily good enough if you can ride it as MM does, and with advantages compared to last year’s bike, but I think the difficulty of riding it as he does should not be underestimated. Meanwhile the Yamaha seems pretty good, so it can hardly be claimed by me or anyone else that the bike is being developed for Rossi to the disadvantage of other Yamaha riders..

Time to reign in qualifying antics. Start handing out grid penalties to anyone who slows up or otherwise fucks about.
