Sepang 2015

Being in England right now, I'm seeing things 7 hours sooner!
Rossi is certainly making some noise about MM and claiming intentional on track antics to help Jorge win.
I'd rather the talk be exclusively expressed by the riding.

Yea, it's going to be interesting... apparently he brought out lap times from the race and had notes all over them showing that marquez could have been faster but intentionally sandbagged... this even after marquez talked about his tires getting too hot and he very well could have backed off to save his tires... My thoughts are, marquez can't sandbag him if he's out front... He hasn't shown that he can be faster than lorenzo on a dry track... put up or shut up.. if you think you deserve to be champ then prove it.

Dani has a 4/10ths gap to MM.
I've never been a fan of Dani but since his most recent arm pump repair he's been a new man.
Jorge is a hair behind Rossi but one row behind.
Iannone might be a race surprise is my guess.

Well.

Didn't see that one coming! Don't know what Valentino thinks he was doing, or how he hoped to get away with that as a tactic.

He's the one accusing MM of holding him up - how's Vale going to sell that as a normal racing line to Race Direction?

Sh*t storm about to burst. Stay tuned.

Mind boggling.
How did Rossi allow himself to fall prey to Red Mist ?
He can kiss the title goodbye.

Looks like he has totally bought into his own conspiracy theory, can't see that MM is racing him for position on the track, passing him when he can to get in front, just as VR is doing to others around him.

I'm super-disappointed in the guy, seems like a complete failure of character.

Yeah, that was a real class-less move from a normally class guy. Bye-bye title.

He won't get much sympathy from the home crowd in Valencia, that's for sure.

I'm shocked to see Val let that get to him, to the point he basically throws the championship run out. What should have been a great last race battle may turn into a yawner.

Lin Jarvis's 11 minute video interview on the MotoGP website is insightful and balanced.
MM did not do a rule book no no.
Rossi did.
Further, whether or not MM honestly believes VR kicked him, the indications are the VR did not.
VR's penalty was from his riding, not his foot, and Lin agrees there was an infraction.
Rossi has surely pissed away his chance at the title, unless JL comes in 3rd and VR comes in 6th at Valencia.
Personally, I think Jorge is the deserved one at this point.
I'm keeping an eye out for Kevin Cameron's post race article, that should have some very interesting and highly qualified commentary in it too !

Agreed... I think it's arguable at best whether or not he was sand bagging at phillip island, but I can see the argument that he's fighting when he doesn't have to at Malaysia, but wouldn't you? Dude shits on you all week in the media and then gets angry when you don't just let him by and help him to the front? I would have done the same thing... Rossi lost a lot of respect from me over this whole thing

That "pass" Lorenzo put on MM did seem extremely easy. I think MM and VR would have ended up together on the track even if one of them had to drop to 12th place to fight with the other one.

Very interesting read as compares to Lin Jarvis's comments.
And there is little doubt the MM/VR spat will continue.
Rossi may get more than he bargains for though.
MM is very good at pinball................

99's a little bi tch
93 is the fastest guy on the planet. Also the most reckless.
Always glad to see him on the ground.
rEpsol what crock. I hope you do pull out of racing. After your statement
none of the motorcycle shops in my town will order any of your products.

Good Article

Awwwwww poor rEpsol.
http://www.motorsport.com/motogp/new...ed-rossi-kick/
rEpsol, title sponsor of the factory Honda MotoGP team, says it could reconsider its involvement in the sport following the Malaysian Grand Prix clash between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez. :ahhdiddums

In a strongly worded statement, the Spanish oil giant slammed Rossi for what it described as a "premeditated" and "unsportsmanlike" kick against Marquez when the duo made contact on the seventh lap of Sunday's Sepang race while fighting for third place.
