Teammates in Motorsport

Anybody want to comment on what occurred on last lap of Qatar Wsbk? Kawasaki have done this before.

If you live in a glass house, don't throw rocks.

!spoiler!















































Johny Rea gifted the second place in race and so in championship to his teammate, Tom Sykes.
Understandable, but poor Chaz, I was sorry for him.
This sunday was fenomenal for racing, excellent round for motogp, wsbk and wss

Guintoli couldn't follow team orders to help his teamate.
Melandri couldn't follow team orders to help his teamate.

Rea without team orders helps his teamate.

Class act.

Rea you rock !

You omitted Loris Baz - two seasons ago at Qatar.

I still maintain that the most amusing flagrant flouting of team orders was the Kallio/Talmácsi incident in 2005 (I think)...also at Losail.

I would have thought that the team of Marquez and Lorenzo flouted the rules as well last year ................ well according to some

I'm challenging the saying that they hate eachother.

I have seen the 2 of them together multiple times and they are extremely friendly to eachother, almost like best buds.
I don't think they are acting, looks genuine

I doubt to many of the people across all paddocks genuinely 'hate' another rider at all.

Sure I do believe that some riders do not like one another, but then that does not mean hatred as for mine it is quite normal to not like another person, but not hate them either.

Plus of course there is the public and private scenarios where often a top athlete in public is totally different to how they are privately, and as we only generally get the public that is how they are judged.

That all said, their is obvious antipathy in some quarters but again, to me that is to be expected in these type of businesses.
