MotoGP » Moto2: Kallio torpedoed in 'suicidal' Marquez move

“It was a 'racing incident' apparently, which makes about as much sense as Marquez's reasons for trying such a suicidal move in the first place”- Michael Bartholemy, Marc VDS.

Don't like the moves the guy pulls and I think that they should fairly divvy out penalties and all that but watch him get into the top three in championship points next year. The dude is FAST!

Once again I am not defending the stunts he regularly pulls.

No fan of Marquez sometimes questionable on-track behaviour, but having now watched the video, I think it is a racing incident. Cannot see there would have been enough force in that impact to have bent the swing-arm in Kallio's bike. More like the bashing it took when it flipped across the gravel.

Am I the only one who thinks it's ironic that Stoner likes MM, argues in his favor, defends him and is happy that he replaces him?

... on the other site he hates tough racer like Rossi and Simoncelli

wow this is a total surprise. Really looking forward to next year motogp.

Marquez will be handed his ass on a plate by the big boys, and i will say it now. The odds on Smith getting ROY will be big because of Marquez on the repsol. But if you dont make the race start, you dont get points.

Can see the likes of Rossi and Crutchlow giving Marquez a tough time, and so they should.

He is like a spoilt kid given a clear advantage. the way his bike was picking up at every race out of corners onto straights is not rider ability.

Its actually quite embarrassing watching so a performance differential. Pol deserves a medal for what he has done this year

Why does Marquez get away with it when in Moto 3 today Salom got this penalty!

Salom was subsequently penalised for the incident with Folger, with the Spainard deemed as "riding in an irresponsible manner during the Moto3 race, causing danger to rider Jonas Folger, which is an infringement to the article 1.21.2 of the 2012 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix regulations", meaning he has a five place grid penalty in Sepang next weekend.

Just typical really. Not surprised no action was taken. Marquez is dornas golden boy and obviously want him to win championship at any cost. Not the first time he has been involved in this kind of thing.

What does everyone expect, run by dorma, spanish rider, repsol money. Dorma could not run a cold so what parent company is thinking. Fools. Spoilt spanish kid with rules helping him look better than he is, of course he does not care, hes you know what does not smell. An Repsol to much power in the sport. Dorma do not have back bone to deal with he or them. Why has no one chinned him off track. He might grow up then.
