So the MotoGP championship is down to the last race.  This move cost Rossi 3 points...I think he let his frustrations with the Spaniards get the better of himself...

So what do all of you who have seen the recent races think of this? I think Rossi should have handled himself better but understandably frustrated with the Spaniards. From all the footage I've watched it looks to me that Marquez turned into Rossi and Marquez didn't have to do that. He had other options to deal with Rossi pushing him wide.

Pretty much agree, a sad ending to a great season in MotoGP.  Rossi's back of the grid starting position for Valencia has pretty much sealed it, unless he can convince Dovi or Iannone to take out Jorge...if the Spaniards were working together, why not the Italians?... Roll Eyes

I've watched more and more footage & interviews.  Right now I'm inclined to think Marquez is a lying douchbag punk.

Being faster than you thought possible…it feels good. No, screw that—it feels like shotgunning a gallon of adrenaline and chasing it with an all-night orgy aboard a burning Viking boat.

And as an "ambassador" for the Ducati brand however that works as he never cared for the P.R. side of things.  He may get some wildcard rides.  He likes that Ducati is now listening to the riders whilst HRC still thinks the engineers know best.

Yes.  beIN is televising both WSBK & MotoGP this year from what I understand. Race 1 may be telecast tonight, Friday the 26th, at 6pm.  A little bit ago when I was at home it was only listed as "To Be Announced". I think it should be the race as WSBK has a new format this year with Race 1 being run on  Saturdays and Race 2 on Sundays.  It looks like that is what they are going to do all season long so as to attract more television viewing.
