Yep...30 second head start would have been more fair and would have replicated the effect of a pit lane start for the others.

But, race direction made the right call putting everyone on the grid. It's way, way too dangerous to start them all out of the pit lane like that. It would be absolute pandemonium.

Back in 2015 mm made a mockery of the sport, and got away with it. His arrogance has only grown. DORNA has created a monster, I would like to see him set down for the rest of this season. Let him come to America and run AFT and some Supercross events and see how far his "rubbin is racin" tactics get him. Hell put him in a stock car, the "bump and run" is standard practice in that venue.
Thanks from youngR

Reminds me of the aggressiveness of Simoncelli when he used to pull that shit back in the day.
which was worse double 0 zarco on pedrosa or marc on rossi? lets say they are equal for the sake of the argument. why nothing on zarco. i will have to rewatch the race and see who petrucci sabotaged.

all i can say from the few club races i've done: i chose the LWT classes for "more easy going competitors" and not the meat grinder class (600's)....

if i'd have known that there's a known "stuffer" like MM in a race, i'd had sat it out.

difference is, i'm not getting paid millions, but it would still piss me off. racing is somewhat a gentlemen's agreement. not much room for dicks. even on a very competitive level.

There are guys that do that at track days and if the provider doesn't handle it, the aggrieved will. You would prefer that the provider handles it.

Marc on Rossi was worse. There was a small door open for Zarco and Dani came back and they were both there together with light touch. Marc was using guys as motocross berms out there...not the same. Rubbin is racing but ramming is not.

Why is everyone bringing up Zarco? There was little to no contact made, he pushed Dani wide, Dani got on the gas and high sided. Yes; total asshole move by Zarco, but Zarco didn't make Dani crash, Dani made Dani crash.

MM plowed Rossi off the track in a corner with no run off. Pure lack of respect for other riders or the sport of Moto GP

MM should be suspended and fined like any other professional sport or athlete. He caused a massive mess, could've potentially hurt or killed someone.

I'm a fan of the sport not any specific rider. You can't have someone that reckless in this sport. Racing is dangerous, more so motorcycle racing. He could've ended Rossi's career being that aggressive. He could've passed him in the very next corner. Makes no sense.

Yes there are intense battles for position and races can involve contact. But thats not what MM did yesterday. He was careless to the sport as a whole, other riders and his own life.

I think he hit Aleix Asparagus even harder than Rossi.

He did, but in a wider corner with more run off as well.
