I wonder what Miller was saying in this situation?
I’m sure it wasn’t pleasantries.



Notice Mir had to put his hand down on Miller l’s leg to keep from being pulled over.
There once was a biker named Double-Fat. Who rode all over like a cafeined gnat.
When he once tried some Frenchy booze, His skills improved the more he wooz'd-
And he was heard to mumble, "Dood- that's where it's AT!"Uncle Ernie-4-24-2011

WTF!

In the NFL that would be considered a blatant face mask penalty.
Ejection from the game, big yardage loss for the team, I think 15 yards,  and very heavy fine.

You can break a guy's neck like that.

This still shot looks worse than it was - though Miller still crossed the line.

They had come to a stop, and after a very quick exchange, where Miller got into some yelling and finger pointing that suggested he was emphasizing his displeasure at being rammed on the last lap, Mir seemed to beg off as if he knew he was out-of-line and sorry for the contact, holding his hands up and taking a zero-conflict approach. Not leaving the conversation, but not wanting to 'Get Into it'....

But Miller really wanted to fully transmit his displeasure, so he turned Mir's helmet by the chinbar to look him in the eye. Mir could've flipped out at that moment. Socially, he had license at that point to respond with some agro, but he let Miller get the last word and they parted.

The low-angle shots of Marquez skittering and flying his Honda over the bumps and hills of the first sector gave visual testimony to the extent of the tarmac-unevenness of COTA.

But did you notice the pavement cracks all over the track that are visible from the on-bike shots ???

That really comes to light in the Moto3 race.
