“His sarcastic applause when we returned to the pits was ugly and uncalled for,” raged an embittered Max Biaggi after Marco Melandri gave him the slow clap and made sarcastic remarks about Biaggi’s performance. What happened next is a clear explanation as to why you never, ever fuck with a crazy Italian.
“Melandri isn’t sporting, and what he did wasn’t very classy. I didn’t see him behind me on track, and for him to say that I did is shocking,” continued Max. Melandri was angry after his and Noriyuki Haga’s superpole lap was ruined by Biaggi’s painfully slow performance. The World Champion was clearly not on form this weekend.
