Jorge Lorenzo felt that some of team-mate Valentino Rossi's moves during their thrilling - and at times physical - fight for third at Motegi on Sunday were 'a bit too much'.

Yamaha bosses are also said to have felt that some of Rossi's moves were too risky, given that Lorenzo is a fellow Yamaha rider and on target to win the 2010 MotoGP title.

So is Lorenzo justified in feeling Rossi took things too far, or are his words just the complaints of a beaten rider?

Rossi never pushed him off the track or made him crash. It's racing, Lorenzo needs to deal with it.

Reminiscent of a beaten Casey Stoner Laguna Seca, come on thats racing. Watch WSBK, Moto 2, BSB, world supersport it happens somewhere down the line every single race. Thats the problem with Motogp now, i mean come on Formula 1 is almost as exciting. I can see what hes saying a little but Lorenzo brought it on just as much as Rossi. Its what we love, thats why we watch it. Should happen more often in my opinion.

The only reason it doesn't happen more is the small amount of bikes on the grid. Look at the scuffs in Moto2. 40 riders battling for position, it's brilliant to see the talent these guys have and sheer balls when pushing for a spot. Demented is right, it is racing...

As long as a rider isn't flagged by race officials for their riding, team or not, it's every man for themselves.

yea I think lorenzo needs to get over it....

the only one that really pushes him is Rossi, and Rossi is finally feeling good enough to push again

and the bottom line is, Lorenzo is just not as good

Rossi's still not 100% and he can stil push and eventually get the better of him, he really is the greatest


not to mention their battle was the most entertaining part of the this entire season! :banger:

I think this is Rossi sticking it to Lorenzo/Yamaha - he's not going to give an inch unless you pry it from him. Forcefully. He wasn't going to give up that position as long as he had a chance.

Considering the bikes are (near) identical, Lorenzo was just unable to outride Rossi, so Rossi maintained his position.

It would be more interesting if they allowed you to try and kick off the other rider like NES - Renegade - forward to 5:43...

^^haha

i watched the last laps like 10 times and it was totally legit racing. lorenzo left plenty of room for rossi to dive in. Lorenzo just tipped the bike onto rossi after he was in the inside. Almost looked like lorenzo did it cause he realized he left to much room for rossi to make a move.

Lorenzo needs to man up and stop bitching. rossi was ahead of him the entire race, and obviously had the pace. lorenzo has the tilte locked up, pedrosa was out, and will be out the next round as well. he only needs 7 points for the title, so if he was concerned about dicing with rossi, he should have stayed behind and settled for 4th. he chose to bring it, so WTF? was rossi supposed to let him have 3rd just because he wanted it?

Imagine if they had headsets.

"Rossi, Lorenzo is faster. Do you understand?"
