A bit harsh in my opinion, though I suspect the stewards feel he came back across a bit too aggressively to defend knowing there was probably another rider around him somewhere.

This won't do his reputation much good either. A great rider, but speed and maturity don't seem to have developed quite in tandem... It will come though.

People look at the bigger picture he is constantly riding and pulling dangerous manoeuvres like Qatar and did it a few times today to Andrea

Marquez said he hadn't seen Esparago but if you watch the slow-mo his helmet turns to the left a fraction just before he hits him, sugestion he had seen him coming up the inside and tried to block him. It's a pity this happened given how good the race was!

I like Marquez, however he does seem to see the red mist a bit, and make judgement errors.Pol had easily got the inside line and Maec cut in very sharply,if he had run the wider line both would have finished the race. I think the issue here is the number of times incidents like this have happened with Marc.Still an exceptional rider.
