I still can't work out if Rossi isn't quietly pissed that he's not going to be gifted the championship title he thinks he deserves. Part of me wonders if he detests the current argy bargy so much because he knows it's a game for the younger generation who can still risk a bounce or three.

Pesky Spanish.

When Marquez was questioned by the media regarding the incident, he ultimately blamed the track conditions as the main culprit of Rossi’s fall. According to the Spaniard, “I did not make anything crazy with Valentino. You need to understand the track condition. The line was dry but I hit a wet patch and locked the front, released the brake and there was contact.”


Laughing oh dear, this will run and run!

I just don't understand how that's a defence. Unless his Spanglish is weak (which I doubt) that says 'I was not in control of the motorcycle, and if I was, I hit him on purpose, but it's not my fault because it was wet'.

What a bellpiece.

Race control have given MM a three-place penalty on tomorrow’s grid for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Let's see if he can get to the front by the 2nd lap. Pass the popcorn

Aye, he deserved that too. Not sure what's happened over the break but he seems to have come back with completely the wrong attitude.

Be interesting to see what happens in the race ... hopefully it's a clean race but from watching the commentary, he still seems to think he's done no wrong.

Looked like he got pole and then switched off because in his mind, that was all that mattered.

If he skittles a couple more people off and causes an injury in the process, i think people will start to refuse to race with him and that will definitely give DORNA a job to do.

Obviously too late, but fixed for you.
What a crock of shite race though. I correctly predicted Crashlow and Lorenslow's positions. I did not see Crazy Joe doing quite that well though, that must have annoyed 99 a bit!

And then you watch him do what he does best. 7 seconds lead before he eased off on the last lap

Such a dull race at the US round, really hate that track for overtaking.

I think it may be better for cars than bikes. Sleeping

Apparently it isn't!

Quite surprised there was no pay back for MM, ie. forced wide at the first corner.
JLo, (surprisingly), and a few other riders have expressed their displeasure with MM, as much as I detest MM, I can't help but think that the other riders let him get away with it, far too often.

Boring track produces a boring race, yet again, no wonder MotoGp is on it's uppers in the US.

JLo really needs to pull his finger out, can't see him getting a ride if he doesn't!
