And what is this "F1" that other people are talking about? Is that a form of car racing?

No apologies. I only saw it the one time, live (not counting the replays during the race), so was thinking I miss-judged something...like maybe Rossi attempted to close the door...

Now i'm thinking maybe Zarco should have been looked at again with his check on Dani. But if you listen to the post race opinions of Vale and Marc, it's on again.

wonder if MM will get to start at the back in Austin. That would seem fair.

Lovely to hear "god save the queen" at a race track, especially in Argentina

I was afraid someone might bring that up. I'm a huge Zarco fan, but fair is fair, and that was mighty aggressive...sent Dani into a nasty spill.

Wow, what a race! I was already a Marquez hater, but after this one.... I think he needs to sit out at least one race. Dorna, being Spanish, won't do that, and they love the publicity, but I really feel sorry for his fellow competitors. The guy is an entitled little twat menace.

I have to give him credit, though. His talent (or craziness) is on a wholly different level than the rest of the field.

Colin's soliloquy in the postrace was classic.

Vale said that when you don't respect your rival it hurts the entire sport. E vero!

And in an interview with Yamaha team boss, Lin Jarvis, mentioned that Rossi is "scared" to be near MM on track...

Quote:
“Valentino has said that Marquez is very dangerous and is scared of being near Marquez on track. This is something that needs to be resolved in future, not only for us but for MotoGP in general.”

Watching how he landed with both hands out, I couldn't believe he walked away without holding at least one wrist in pain.
