Rossi and Lorenzo Argue in 2016 San Marino GP Post Race Conference
Although Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo are in the same team, they definitely had their differences. A heated discussion occurred at the press conference, right after the San Marino Grand Prix ended. Lorenzo refuted Rossi’s action during lap 2. He told that Valentino overtaking was too dangerous and aggressive, that’s what caused him (Lorenzo) to fall to 3rd position.
Rossi responded smugly, stating that his action was necessary and it had been a tactic of other riders. Rossi mentioned, even Marquez during the Silverstone Grand Prix did it. Lorenzo also defined Rossi’s racing tactic as aggressive, which wasn’t different with what he had done. For the record, this isn’t their first clash of words, since they also argued at each other in the Qatar and Sepang GPs.
