Having watched the youtube vid I can't see how it is Marc's fault. Racing incident. Pol looked wobbly just before impact and saw where Marc was and should of adjusted his line. Just my 2 cents....

getting like the pedro/sic incidents all over again.
personally i think its a racing incident , but find it hard to believe that mm never knew or heard pol was there.
that said , its over and time to move on.

my view, if Marquez does get his penalty back, then Leon Haslam needs one to from the donington incident. he went wide, closed in and johnny hit him. thing is, Espagaro hit Marquez, pol saw the door open and took the chance, Marquez went back for the line and didn't see Espagaro, (helmets restrict vision on the side)

if they start penalizing people for taking risks then why in the future will anyone risk overtaking.

"well i was in front, he tried to overtake me as i turned and i fell so it was his fault for overtaking me" doesn't sound right to me

The thing you seemed to have forgotten is that Haslam went wide because of Melandris ridiculous lunge. You can't really compare the incidents. Suggest you watch the race again.

Come on guys, man up a bit, its a REAL man sport, not a load of wufters kicking a bag of air around. "No quater shall be given", Pol saw what happened and took a chance, Marc new he was there and defended every inch, as a racer, the guy behind is not coming passed with an invitation, not ever!. Marc needed a wrap for the Willarot incident for sure, but for Qatar and Catalunya, the man is in race mode, and he has won the battles he has fought

I still see Pol taking a much tighter line then the racing line and slamming the power on to take advantage. But if MM gets a penalty then why shouldn't Zarco for the same incident with gino rea?? I know Marc has form of aggressive riding but it still needs to be consistent
