When Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo were teammates in 2009 their rivalry was so bitter that Yamaha built a wall down the middle of the garage to separate them. Things are a lot calmer these days (the wall is gone) but little incidents like Rossi blocking Lorenzo during Misano qualifying, or the pitlane moment in the video below, suggest there is still animosity there. When Lorenzo blamed his championship deficit on bad luck last week, Rossi responded by saying Jorge was being “disrespectful”, so there will be plenty of heat in final races of 2015. Fantastic.
