Rossi is one of Italy's most famous sportsmen and the controversy has infuriated his legion of fans.Nearly 370,000 people have signed an online petition calling on MotoGP organizers to drop the Valencia penalty.Prior to Sunday's race, Rossi had claimed former champion Marquez wanted fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo to win the championship instead of him.Out on the track, the pair vied for position and at a certain point, Rossi flicked his knee out, sending his rival crashing to the ground.Subsequent video shown repeatedly on Italian television suggested that Marquez had brushed his head against Rossi's leg first. Rossi's supporters pinned the blame squarely on the Spaniard for the fall.Rossi leads Lorenzo by seven points ahead of Valencia, with 25 points available to the victor in Spain.
