Barros is the only one with a TON of consistant laps in the 1:38s and a TON in the 1:39s while the rest of the field had at the most 7 laps in the 1:39, no one else in the 1:38s. I think Barros MIGHT have this in the bag, lets see what Rossi pulls out of his arse tomorrow during QP1.
Mr Zerbi´s letter had invited the riders to reflect upon the incident, and to remain as positive examples for all MotoGP fans – asking them to fight fairly and without will of revenge. The FIM President also wrote that he didn’t see any infringement to the rules, but stressed that this kind of situation shouldn’t be repeated
The comments made by Gresini were:
“I fully agree with President Zerbi about the fact that sportsmanship is the most important thing. There’s no room for bitter feelings between two great riders, but in the meantime, I’m still perplex.”
“In this letter, Sete and Valentino are treated equally as if Sete had some responsibility in the facts, and I can’t agree with that. I believe there is a contradiction when the FIM president writes ‘there isn’t anything to reproach you for from a legal point of view’, and then warns that what happened in Jerez must not occur again.”
Barros is still top zombie after Qualifying. The Ducatis perked up at the end and Nicky is 5th fastest Honda. It looks like Tamada crashed early on, and Bayliss is still hurting from yesterday's crash! Discuss amongst yourselves!
post qualifying interviews Sete was already talking himself out of winning. he crashed early and was saing it will be hard to hold the pace sunday and hopefully can get some points. or maybe he's laying the bs on pretty thick
I should not respond personally to your open letter given to the press, but through the intermediary of my lawyers; however, considering that I subscribe to the rules of courtesy and that I believe private life is a right that no-one can deny, I am not going to enter into a controversy – an easy one given the ridiculous arguments in your letter.
The only thing that I want to stress and which, as a man, mortifies me is that I am mistaken in my judgment of men. And that I say on an individual level far more than on an institutional level.
With much bitterness,
NB: I am sending this letter to the press because your employee, by violating all principles of education, more so than of law, did not hesitate to betray the confidence that had been granted to him. </TD></TR></TABLE>
