Marquez couldn't stop his bike cause he kinda throw it in there, Im a big Jorge fan but thats racing and I'm sure Lorenzo wishes he'd taken the inside line to block

I think Jorge underestimated how hungry Marquez is, maybe he thought MM would hold back a bit more in gp class, I think this weekend has taught Jorge a valuable lesson, dont give Marquez a single inch.

Looking forward to some great scraps from these two!

Lol, a very interesting chain of events. The season is long and action like this will put a smile on viewers faces but believe me anyone who's ever been on the track and had this maneuver happen to them will
A. wonder why they didn't ride more defensively even if they were trying to carry corner speed from a wide line for a race to the finish.
B. brake earlier and just let the oncoming rider overshoot the turn as Marquez had just done 2 turns prior and go back underneath him.

Its truly on now as Spaniard blood is boiling.

Marquez was faster and had been the last 2/3rds of the race. Lorenzo had done a masterful job of blocking all passing avenues right up until the last corner . Had he taken a slightly tighter line, Marquez would have settled for 3rd, but Lorenzo took the widest line possible and payed for it. He can piss and moan all he wants, he is as much to blame for getting passed as Marquez is for sticking it in hard.

Other then this incident it was a boring race,Marquez wants to win and if you leave the door open he's in ther and too be honest its great to see,Riders dont have to make nice passes this is GP racing every rider should be out there to win.
Yamaha are in Big Trouble and i dont think its the bikes that are 100% too blame,Honda have two Hungary Riders that dont beleave the Lorenzo/Rossi Hype one little bit.

I think history and ego's got in the way of this one. Jorge probably could have turned in later as Marquez was on fire he came into that corner so hot. Then it would have been an over, under like the previous overly ambisious pass attempt by Marquez. Either way, racing incident, ballsy move and Lorenzo should have seen it coming.
