I dont remember Marco running people down almost every other other round. He had his moments, but they were every other year, this guy doesnt care, cause he knows he can get away with it... and he just doesnt care.

To the fanboys that think Dirty Marc is cool:
That was just during a 1st practise on a damp track. It has absolutely nothing to do with racing.

...and blame on race direction for, on top of all this, putting this empty-headed testosterone overdosed baby on a bike on the back of the grid to provide just a good Dorna-show as he may just kill someone carving through the field without mercy. He should be simply banned from this race. basta.

If something happens tomorrow Dorna is to blame for 100%.

I wonder why Corsi kept his cool... very weird. I guess he's got smart manager...

I don't believe for a moment that Marquez's Suter is a worse bike than Espargaro's Kalex. The question is, are the other Suters as good as Marquez's? Eskil Suter blatantly broke his contract to supply equal parts and support last year, and is no doubt giving Marquez favoured status again this season. Typically, Marquez had 3 full days of testing before Indianapolis whereas Luthi was only there on the last day. And that's on top of any acceleration advantages provided by allegedly flashing the standard ECU with bespoke mapping.

Marquez is a danger to others, and because he's been allowed to get away lightly with such behaviour, all he's learnt from these incidents is that he'll probably get away with more of the same in future, so no wonder he's a serial offender.

@ Not British
Regarding Crutchlow's take on the performance difference between the bikes of Marquez and Espargaro ... can you read? Do you even bother checking out the "speed" differences on the time sheets on MotoGP.com? Crutchlow is there at the track and I'm sure this makes him more qualified than you to make that statement!
Marquez's Suter bike = 264.2 km/h
Espargaro's Kalex bike = 279.6 km/h
... and yet Marquez had a time of 1'36.090 and Espargaro 1'36.127 :p

There's a big difference between riding like a maniac, shoving riders out of the way, and riding in an acceptable way! Marquez is dangerous and will seriously hurt someone before long if he doesn't pack in barging around - hopefully it will only be himself and not some other innocent doing the right thing.

Anyone who thinks The Suter is the best bike seriously isn't paying attention . Where were the likes of Espagaro, and Redding last year when they weren't on the Kalex ? That's right nowhere for most of it!!!!! It's no coincidence that both Redding and Kallio who are teammates effectively jumped 10 places up the standings from last year to this year when they switched from Suter to Kalex. They didn't just become much better riders overnight by accident. And Pol got 2 podiums all year in 2011. He was nowhere near Marquez when he was on the FTR. Now he is super fast every weekend on the Kalex. And to reinforce my point Bradl won 1 single race in 2010 on the Suter and barley finished in the top 10 in the championship. He switches to the Kalex for 2011 and all of the sudden dominates the first half of the season.... The Kalex is obviously much easier to ride at the limit than the other chassis....
