is coming in too hot. He knew his chances were SLIM, but he was going to try in any case, as a good racer would do. The difference between iders and racers - Racers become World Champion!!!!

A majority seem to share my gut feeling that Marquez was deliberately slamming the door on Pol E knowing he would be coming up the inside. I don't think he hit him on purpose but it was wild and reckless. Not a racing incident in my opinion.

MM is involved in more incidents than the others combined. The guy has a habit of knocking other riders off when dicing with them. All too common from him, and the authorities have at least fired a warning shot to give him a message, albeit too light handed for many peoples liking. He's a great talent, but Moto2 titles have been won by riders who didn't resort to that, even though it's so competitive. We don't know of he can change his ways.

MM lost the bike then saved it. its a bit much to expect him to be doing a bloody highway code look behind you check. grow up everyone.
The other guy would have got by in the next few corners if he hadn't been so impulsive as to stuff it up the inside like that.

Just watched a replay of this. Marquez looked to be back on the racing line before espargaro made the jump on the inside. Espargaro could see that marquez was moving back inside and hung back. Marquez was ok in my view. Espargaro shouldnt have tried to go through a gap that was closing on him

The way Marquez rides and treats other riders on track makes it obvious that he thinks he is protected because of all the people of power he has round him.This could be a recipe for disaster . I think the people who could of done something about it have missed the oppurtunity now because next time he does it they will be powerless to act because they have told him its ok to do that. He is fast enough and doesn't need to do things like that. He has to accept that been who he is is not a licence to do as he likes.The next incident could be a lot worst. I just hope its not someone else who gets the worst of it.

My take on it was that it was just a racing incident, but however all accidents are avoidable, its best to ask MM what his impressions were and take it from there. But i am not impressed with his moves when outbraking to fall into in front off the rider he passes therefore putting him into a position where he can be brake tested. He did it on AI, He contrived to lose the M2 championship becuase of over arrogance, he needs a calming influence. I was bitterly disappointed for PE as he is riding really well right now

At the speed they are traveling time gets compressed and things happen very quickly. Seems to me the person coming from behind is in a better position to anticipate and avoid rather then the person in front having some crystal ball, and millisecond by millisecond being able to incorporate all the information coming at him and be able to avoid something he doesn't even know is about to be. As anyone knows who rides, allot of information to deal with to stay alive. Way more so for these guys. Dont really see fault, a racing incident but IMHO Espargaro had more time and therefore space to deal with it then MM.
