If Marquez pushed out Rossi, there would be chants of dead from the Rossi Fan Maquina. Nevertheless...It's Lorenzo's fault 50% for not "seeing" that MM was going to come at him, Lorenzo had a rare moment of tunnel vision.
Marquez knew he was going down and take JL with him but he picked up the bike, went wide, pushed Jorge out and took advantage of this physical move for a position. Unlike cars, motorcycle racing is a more dangerous sport, if you like bashing tune into nascar. Sure motogp has been boring, but hard contacts should not be part of it.

not unlike Marco Simonchelli, he came and bashed fairings and we grew to love him for dicing with the front runners on a bike that should not be able to. MM will upset the front runners because as well as the skill he has the machine to win... There's a strong chance he will win the 2013 championship barring accidents

As they stated, MM would not have even made the turn, had he not hit JL. I do agree it's entertaining, but dangerous never the less. I think he's awaken the ole JL who focused himself during these times. Hopefully it will bring about more entertaining's hoping so, but hopefully without any serious injuries!! Giddy up!

That last corner is a bit of a nightmare for the leading bike as there are only two options, (1) close the door early to make the follower go around the outside and then push them wide

(but the folowers don't try the outside route they all know its a long way to the flag so they square the corner and cut inside and win on the drag race to the flag because the leader is still on the side of the tyre after the corner and cannot get the power on)

(2) (leave the door open and as the follower overcooks their own braking so let them through and then the leader squares the corner and win on the drag race to the flag as the follower is trying to get off the side of the tyre and get the power down.)

the fly in the ointment is that the only way for the follower to win is by bashing fairings in the open door senario....they all know that!....but closing it gives the advantage the follower...What do you do??

This incident is Rossi/Gibernau all over Again, the one thing I can say is that Marquez yet again shows too much aggression which he has been prone to if you look back at his Moto 2 and 125 races, hopefully this doesn't get blown out of proportion like most motor racing incidents lately. I also hope that Marquez calms down a little as he has plenty of racing talent to do well without being too aggressive.

If I were Lorenzo I will do the same, Angry and refuse contact with him..

but it just mad "at the moment".. he (jl) was angry with himself and mm. One thing to point out is Jorge never lies about what he feels to get appreciation from audiences, or to win public impression. He is what he was to be.. and I adore him bcos that personality,hehe..

Anyway, Wilco said the tyre had already dropped a lot after 5 laps. Hope Yamaha can solve the balance and tyre issues in today test. So Lorenzo even Vale can much more competitive this year and We'll see many battles ahead..

sorry english isn't my first language
