Offensive Gestures – Yesterday, we read the last comment posted by Randy Mamola on the site Motorsport.com. The former pilot talks about how the riders should behave on the track. Especially the great champions. According to Mamola, Valentino Rossi, both on and off the track, should change his behavior.
The FIM, through the IRTA, sent to the MotoGP teams a warning. The offensive gestures and behaviors do not benefit the MotoGP world championship. So, it can’t see them. Then, FIM decided to impose penalties to those who do not respect the rules. The FIM’s warning came during the Grand Prix of San Marino, on the same weekend in which Valentino Rossi showed his middle finger to Aleix Espargaro, as she proceeded slowly on the straight of the circuit.
Offensive Gestures, Stop Them if You Love MotoGP
Mamola agrees with the FIM. But also says that it is not always easy to remember to be in front of millions of fans worldwide. Especially, now that the tension between some riders is to a higher level. “It’s an effort that I’m sure will bring positive consequences for all of us who love this sport.” adds Mamola.
Mamola also analyzes the war of words between Rossi and Lorenzo. A war started in Misano and which continues today. According to former pilot, the problem stems from the inability to continue sharing the same box. “Thankfully next year they will separate.” said Mamola. In this case, the MotoGP faces a different kind of problem. The behavior of drivers during their appearances on live tv. In Misano, Lorenzo brought once again to the fore the lack of manners of Valentino, explaining that tends to get talking to those around him when others answer questions.
Offensive Gestures, Someone talk to Rossi
Therefore, the attention of photographers all over him. Something that annoys logically who is talking because of the noise it generates. Stoner once stopped talking in the middle of his answer and stared at him until he sat in silence. “The problem, as with most things in this world championship, you will find someone willing to face Valentine and tell him what children are taught since kindergarten. When someone is talking, stop it, even if it is gently gossiping is very rude.” said Mamola.
