Cal's half right at best.

He's right about the principle. It shouldn't be a sanitised procession.

He's wrong about Marquez - And he'll change his tune when the kid starts his ego-centric I'm the most important person on the track' fairing banging ways. Then Cal'll be trying damn hard to hand him his ar5e back on a plate.

If I recall correctly both Simo and Lorenzo crashed a lot either, but the humongous difference is there:

They never took out other riders during practices.

Aggressiveness is great to watch during races, Bautista, De Angelis, Simo are(was) old school riders IMO, hostile as *F* on Sundays, lov'it!

Nonetheless, there's just ZERO argument to defend such a recklessness during practices. It's a question of respect, period.

Cal is is right that no one else can ride the Suter chassis like that! The Suter certainly didn't suit Redding though he is a lot taller than MM!

At least we'll see MM carve his way through the field again on Sunday, I wonder what the odds on a victory for MM is??!!... I wouldn't be that surprised if he pulled it off!... Roll on Sunday

Marquez is fun to watch but he has to chill out. Don't invoke how great Simoncelli was because he did the same thing to other riders and despite his passing I am unwilling to say he was exciting because he was Rossi's friend. Marquez had the speed to wait for a bigger hole, especially in practice. Just like Rea was some kind of great old school fairing bashing racer for punting Haslam out of his first BMW win and you all blamed it on Melandri. There was no gap.When there is no gap somebody gets hurt. That doesn't improve the show. If you like crashes then watch NASCAR

Really hope he comes up to MotoGP with the same attitude, I'd put money on someone lamping him. Odds on RdeP.

He has been involved in too many incidents for him not to be culpable, he is an amazing rider but the arrogance needs reigned in - a lot.

Odd that now he has moved on, they suddenly talk on a minimum rider/bike weight limit in moto2 for next season. Odd that all the cards fall for Marquez.
