    The original article was written on the 1st of April. From yesterday, suddenly a bunch of websites have been quoting it and making a news of it! Dumb journalism at its best.

    ...............Biaggi was sponsored by Fiat, and was driving a new Fiat 500. Rossi and a few associates thought it would be hilarious to flip the car on its roof, the Fiat 500 being a small car weighing virtually nothing at all.
    Such acts are now pretty much unthinkable.................

    Haha,

    Thought it was short lived friendship of team mates, but always happens with Rossi when the two are top championship contenders.
    Yesterday he had a nice handshake and cheers with Marq. A short lived intense rivalry of 2015 with Marq.

    So might be interesting considering Vinales being cocky!

    Dorna, FIM, manufacturers/teams, pr managers and sponsors have clipped riders to a greater extent. No longer can they behave like wild animals. A lot is at stake. However, Rossi once in a while lets it out because he can and still get away with it. Rossi has never forgiven Marq for the 2015 debacle. And he will never change his opinion.

    Those handshakes and nodes are all a new "in" after the Luis Salom accident. Deep down, they all want to crush their rivals.


    IMO, Vinales handled the situation quite well off the track during the interview. On-track split second reactions are nothing unusual.

    Hmmm, For above comments in quote,

    1. Ya, that might have ended long back - Max Biaggi and VR had fist fights.

    2. Haha, true. Its hypocritical,

    3. True, we want to see that on track. Thats what racing is.

    4. Absolutely true, Can't control.

    What I mean is, these rivalries will be interesting if they don't get ugly but some action on track.
