Dorna is a bunch of buffoons

    Giving 10" penalty to Vale 2 hours after the end of the race is one of the
    worst mishappenings in the history of MotorBiking. If they gave him a stop
    and go early in the race he could have come back. He was so superior that
    he was just controlling the race, he had those 10 seconds in his wheels.

    What happened today shows that Dorna is nothing else than a Spanish black
    hand, whose only scope is distributing money to Spanish sponsors and teams.
    All the non spanish riders should do like their MotoCross colleagues who
    wisely decided to separate themselves from the Dorna vultures.

    Mark N may criticize the Flammini family as much as he wants, but the
    Flammini's remain head and shoulders a 1000 meters above slimy Dorna.

    Although Rossi definitely deserved a penalty for what he did (I saw it
    myself when it happened and was so upset that he didn't get
    a stop and go)giving it to him after the race was ridiculous. I think
    Rossi could have stopped and still won the race. I think Rossi can do
    1.0 second faster than any other rider at any track if he has to.

    I wonder why they waited until the race was over? Was it that
    they really didn't want to penalize him and then kept reviewing it and
    realized they had no choice?

    The story goes that the officials didn't know about it till they watched
    the video and then only when they were "prompted" by unnamed people in
    the paddock. They then had to phone Italy and Dorna headquarters to ask
    what to do.

    It definitely should have been picked up by the corner workers, the
    clerk of the course and dealt with as it was very obvious on the video.
    The main feed was an overhead shot of the corner with the pass clearly
    visible almost exactly in line with the waved flag.

    It's a shame they didn't catch it when it happened, but now it's come to
    light the 10sec penalty is correct. And it tightens up the championship
    a little.

    Just watch Rossi pull out all the stops at the next round. This one
    is going to be interesting.
