As @brainy said, Marquez had fully overtaken Luthi and was able to decide his way to the corner. Luthi should have chosen another line and not to insist on the left.
Hard but right. Anyway, I think he also missed his braking point trying to avoid being overtaken.

Looks like the Dorna tolerate these ****ty moves.

Bumping fast contenders of the EXTERIOR part of the track, like a stupid truck driver with the intention to gain a place makes for exciting "Spanish Style" racing it seems.

Let's see what "is too much" next time...

For facts sake.

When Marquez was moving to the exterior, Luthi was only half overtaken. Marquez was just stupidly "assuming" Luthi would brake earlier so Marquez could occupy an empty space.

Of course you could advocate that Luthi should have known that, knowing the type of rider, Marquez would pull a dirty move like that on him...I guess that is a slightly perverted viewpoint though...

I don't care if people ride hard or touch, but kicking a rider out of a winning position to the EXTERIOR of the track onto the curbs is stupid, dirty and cheap.

To watch it on the screen it was not a good move and I honestly cannot see why he did it? Was there a need - no - he had a faster bike ad would have safely and FAIRLY overtaken Luthi soon enough. Don't know if it was illegal as not that clever but it was 'unsafe' and MM should be officially told that this kind of riding is not acceptable. He won and that's all he's interested in ( as most are) but we have to ask ourselves - at what cost. I noticed too that Lorenzo's old friend was holding drinks for MM - what's going on there now??? Anyone know?

Ah right, so its cool to push somebody wide onto the curbs under braking and gain a place? I guess you think it was wrong that Luthi slapped Marquez on the arm on the outlap...? Luthi should have poked his eyes and kicked him in his balls to get even instead? Marquez and his fanboys surely would appreciate a cool move like that too...

That pass by Iannone on the last lap was what Moto2 is all about, just stunning, I'm not usually a crazy Joe fan but after that pass I was routing for him to win it, bit of a harsh pass by Marquez on Luthi but hey rubbing's racing, I'm sure Luthi won't forget it.
