In a shocking statement to press yesterday, Valentino Rossi admitted that he is not sure about racing in the title-deciding final Grand Prix in Valencia. Rossi has reacted to the harsh penalty he has been given for ‘deliberately’ crashing Marc Marquez at turn 14 of the seventh lap of Malaysian race last Sunday.
The Sunday race incident has sparked controversy and debate all over the internet on who was really at fault. Here is what happened between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez…
Later race director Mike Webb issued a statement, mentioning that both riders were responsible for what happened on the track.
Fans across the globe are upset with the penalty awarded to Rossi, which will force the racer to start the Valencia race from the bottom of the grid line. Few supporters have come up with this video that shows Marc repeatedly forced Rossi to go out of line, which eventually made Rossi confront Marc by slowing down in response.

Post race, Rossi has reacted strongly to the whole situation, as seen in this video…
Currently, Rossi is leading the championship, but if he abandons the final race in Valencia, he will lose the championship title to Lorenzo without even a fight.
Also in a very interesting footage, Lorenzo is seen giving thumbs down (at 0:40) to Rossi while he accepts the winning trophy.
