  • FIM Statement Stoner & Rossi - Jerez 2011

    Stoner Rossi incident dismissed | Fox Sports

    Dunno what footage that the FIM saw but there were seven marshals around Rossi, clearly the FIM is as corrupt as FIFA
    DO NOT TOUCH - Probably the most unsettling thing to read in braille.

    They state this....
    "After reviewing various videos of the incident between Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner during the race of theGrand Prix of Spain on 3 April 2011 and hearing the explanation from Juan Alvarez, Director of the Circuito de Jerez, the Race Direction has decided that the behaviour of the track marshals was safe and appropriate," the FIM said in their statement.
    Then they state this...
    "The Race Direction recommends the current rules be reviewed by the Grand Prix Commission in order to study possible solutions that may results in better procedures."
    Contradictory much?

      Yeah, what they mean is, "No action would be appropriate, as marshals can't be fined or sanctioned in any way, because they are marshals. But you can expect a change of rules to prevent controversy in the future."

      Look forward to the 'no marshal assistance' rule in 2012.

        The ruling was 'Stoner had a point, everyone watching saw it, we can't do anything about it now.' What bemuses me is they were spaniards, Rossi's an Italian, Stoner was on a spanish sponsored bike. Surely one of 'em would've gotten down to it to save some spanish(esq) pride? Weird.

        Still, good case study for marshall training - what to do with two or more bikes down: split up numb nuts.
