I lost all respect for Marquez. Lame end for a great MotoGP season.

At this point I'm not sure who deserves more scorn, but Rossi was stupid to do what he did.

So did Rossi. Stoopid move on his part. He's been in the game to long to do something like that. It cost him, dearly.

Besides the fact that if you watch the video, Rossi clearly didn't kick him but lost his foot as Marquez touched him, the deuche has been riding with a chip on his shoulder since he slammd into Vale earlier in the season. When he lost all hopes for the title, he interfered with Rossi at every race, trying to slow him down. That's why Vale spoke out on Friday. After the race, the sore looser admitted he changed his strategy after listening to Vales complains. That bitch is a shame for MotoGp.

So we went from one of the best races anyone can recall to one of the most disappointing to watch.

No comments on who's fault... It was very exciting up to that point, then in a single moment it blow up like a balloon and nothing left to anticipate for.

I can see both sides of this. You knew something bad was gonna happen sooner or later, and it did. I can see why Rossi was pissed--Marquez was holding both of them back from working their way up to the front. However, that was a chump move Rossi made by backing off the gas and forcing Marquez to the outside of the track...

I wanted to see Rossi win another championship before he retired, and this one was certainly interesting.
Marquez was riding like a jerk, as he often does, and baited Rossi and he took the bait.
This would have been simpler if Rossi were as fast as Lorenzo on a dry track, but he is not any more. At least not most of the time.
I think MotoGP needs Rossi more than Rossi needs MotoGP. Without him it will be a rather flavorless experience.

Luca, only 1 guy got penalized for an "illegal non racing move". If he wouldn't have looked back 3 times, he might have gotten away with it.

Maybe it's just the picture, but that umbrella girl looks like a guy.

What causes this is the Yamaha band around her neck preventing a natural flow of oxigen to that poor souls brain.

Dorna is shuttin' down all our vids! Looks like Vale launched an appeal. I'm not one of his fan boys, but I hope they don't take the title away from him for this. MM should be held accountable to some degree.
Valentino Rossi appeals FIM Stewards? decision

If anything, they should have just penalized Rossi on the outcome of Sepang finish. Give him 30 secs penalty, 1-2 positions lost, whatever...instead they hastily took away the championship from him.

They are idiots and they realized that. Valencia could have been a race for the ages with probably the largest live and tv audience of all times for MotoGp.
