Vendetta is served in a cold dish. And in the case of Valentino Rossi, everything points to will be frozen. The Italian rider, who plays with the rules of the road to get away with it, does not fit into the pools to win the MotoGP World Championship in 2016. Enter, or approaches.
Bookmakers are clear in the absence of three months for starting the new season (March 20 in Lusail circuit, in Qatar). According to the training test, Marc Márquez will be the rival to beat next year. Rossi will not be neither second son. Since the second is Jorge Lorenzo, reigning champion of the world.
So first level in Spain betting dictate it by Royal Decree of chance such as Bet365, Willian Hill, Bwin and 888sport, according to a report of the newspaper As. The triumph of Marquez is paid between 1.80 and 2.25 euros per euro wagered. Lorenzo's victory is paid 2.87 to 3.20 euros. Much higher are the fees of Rossi: 5.50-6 euros.
With the new rules for the world of 2016, with changes of tyres - Bridgestone, look will pass to carry Michelin the next course-, it points to the Honda-Repsol team could be the big beneficiary. At least, so tests indicate it.
Valentino Rossi begins to take on the reality. By very crude to make it, the days of rest in his village, Tavullia, have served so that it begins to look to the future and pass the past page. That Yes, no wait that you forget or forgive. What happened at the end of the 2015 World Cup and its war with Marc Márquez still alive in his head and a true reconciliation seems a chimera as much passing days. The Doctor remains fixed in his version of the facts, in accusing the ilerdense favor to Lorenzo.
Case closed in the TAS and goodbye to the resource
However, Vale took the first step. The TAS announced yesterday that Rossi has informed them that waiver to continue with his appeal to the sanction imposed after the Grand Prix of Malaysia. That is, de facto accepted version of career direction and FIM. Therefore, admits that it was deliberately reduced the March, varied career and tried to take the track to the catalan. Therefore, you follow that you have made an unsportsmanlike action that led to the fall of another pilot, in this case, Marquez.
Why you removed this resource now? "In fact, Rossi turned because he wanted to give him the injunction to not leave last in Valencia. Not realizing it was then Sung which TAS was not going to get into a mess and now was to accept that resource. It was the logical thing,"says Paco Sánchez, lawyer and representative of several pilots in the world.
Was there a chance that won the Championship in the offices? No. That was clear from the Ricardo Tormo test. Jorge Lorenzo did not have why fear for his third world Crown. "You could not do anything retroactively, racing, cannot be cancelled for example. The title was already closed from the moment in which was held the career of Valencia", explains Sanchez.
That Yes, Valentino might have decried the FIM and Dorna when the TAS had given the reason in the resource. You would have been able to seek compensation for damages alleging that had not been able to compete on equal terms than its rival and was handicapped by having to go out last on grill. Basically, it could have required a multimillion-dollar sum of money. In the subsequent trial, it is difficult that they had turned to give the reason in your request.
Therefore, at this time, it renounces to all this. It is a way of seeking peace with the Federative body and organisers of MotoGP. "It had nothing to gain. It was difficult that all of that would be given even if they had just accepted his appeal", the Spanish lawyer statement.
It risks leaving 'pit lane' or not to take an appointment However, to bridge this resource, the Italian maintains four penalty points in the flesh. This is a danger for it in 2016. The regulation - which has not changed in this respect - is clear in his article 3.2.1, in relation to the definition and application of sanctions: "points are cumulative and expire after a period of 365 days from the day on which they are imposed". In his case, the first received it on September 12 to hinder Lawrence at the official.
Therefore, if Rossi receives one or more sanctions that make him score seven points before 12 September 2016 you will have to go out the next race from the pit lane. Or, worse still, if it reached 10 points, it would be disqualified to participate in the next race. Only when they reach 10, particular marker is set to zero. Therefore, if you want to take vendettas against Marquez in track you would think about it much.
Vale received only two penalties in the flesh
The nine-time world champion, logically, hopes not to receive further sanctions. In fact, since the meat by points was implemented in MotoGP, beginning in 2013, Valentino has only received two penalties, the last season: the point in Misano and the three received at Sepang.
