Iannone was doing the same! Why didn't Rossi accuse him after Australia??
Bastianini was doing the same thing this year with Pecco in the last races almost crashing into him in Misano and Malaysia! Why didn't Pecco accuse him of trying to help Fabio??
Get on with it Rossi fans! Rossi's domination started to end by 2006 when names like Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa and Hayden showed up! Look at 2010...the guy was nowhere compared to Lorenzo and he bailed out! Not to mention the Ducati years...
Indeed. I´ve never understood that theory of not interfering with the title fight, as it actually is manipulating the title fight, so that theory is the most hypocritical statement in any motorsport
What´s the reason some rider/driver must have no oppostition in a race to beat his rival when those same riders/drivers have fought hard against his rival in many other GPs? The point in the championship is irrelevant, points are points, in first race and in last one. Not fighting any title challenger is favouring him and unfairly harming his opponents, not very sportive exactly.
But fans of the rider/driver accuse the rider/driver doing his job of pretty nasty things, when they are the people asking for nasty things. Racing is racing, if you can´t beat any rival, don´t cry if you loose the title, and specially do not accuse other riders/drivers of your lack of perfomance.
To put it into perspective, I´m an Alonso fan, but I never accused Petrov of interfering on the title fight in 2010, he was doing his job, it was Alonso and Ferrari who failed miserably passing Petrov on track or on the pitstops, and that cost him a title, not Petrov.
