De Angelis panned by fallen r JORGE Lorenzo led calls for Alex de Angelis to be disciplined for his second- corner indiscretion, after narrowly escaping the tangle of bikes and riders that eliminated Nicky Hayden and Colin Edwards. "In the past, I was very crazy -- but I learned not to ride like that in the early laps. I think we need to say something to these riders," he said. Nicky Hayden was equally unimpressed: "You just know there is going to be some aggressive riding in that second group," he said. "I don't want to name de Angelis, but I've seen some crazy moves from him. Even here on Friday he crashed because he opened the gas when he was on the grass. "At this track, on the left side, you have to be careful for a couple of laps until the tyre gets warm. I just saw that tutti-frutti rainbow helmet coming from the side, and I knew he wasn't going to make the corner." Partly it was bad track design, but "we should use our heads," he said. De Angelis apologised to both, but added: "Unfortunately these things happen in racing."To be fair, in spite of his hooligan reputation, it was his first race crash this year. Edwards was especially pithy. Like de Angelis, the crash spoiled a perfect points- scoring record that has lasted 21 races. "He is the one who should have been wearing the donkey helmet," he said. 28
