I love how everyone calls it a "racing incident" exactly how many of these "incidents" has Marquez had over the past few years. Bottomline it wasn't even a block pass, watch the footage, he went in way to hot and would have drifted wide, however Jorge was there to stop his moment, bounce off and run for the line. Meanwhile Jorge was screwed and he knew it (shaking his head). All I can say is I hope Jorge will do the same back to him.

Whatever. Rossi vs Gibernau was an epic race with thousands of overtakes. Rossi's last overtake then was not a dignified thing but the "heat of the race cup racer move" . If you watch this race it really is an epic battle. it was not a planned or rehearsed move.

Marc's strategy was just wimpy: " I'll ride behind 2nd until the last lap. Give it a few uncontrolled tries planning my moves almost running in the back of Lorenzo a few times, Marc's signature style, and then "I'll just bang him of the road in the very last corner and pretend that that's the way all my heroes did it. well...

it does not have quite the same taste...kiddo. Try racing instead of

awesome riding though! racecraft isn't quite there yet

All the best racers will fight like this for a win or even a few more points, it's what could be the difference between a championship. No one will remember the runner ups, winning is all that matters to these guys.

I think that Jorge either could :
1. Close the door on MM early, but risk running wide with the front tire problems while MM can take the outside line to an inside exit and the Honda will blast through. Or,
2. Close the door a little later, keep MM behind exiting the turn but risk MM blasting through with Honda power on the final straight. Or,
3. (what actually happened) Take the outside entry line into the turn for a faster exit, but risk having MM take the "this is my apex" line into the turn.
Anyways, both Jorge and Rossi thought this was Yamaha's land and something is terribly weak.

i watched replay MM vs JL and VR vs SG the only thing that they have in common is the last corner VR was fighting for the win VR was much closer to SG and took the tightest line possible!!!! MM didnt, he launched a kamikaze attack way back and block passed JL yes he did leave the door open because he braked very very late to go deeper in to the corner and then square it off, like he was doing most off the race but MM took the advantage to block pass him.. it looked like when VR attacked CS way way back in wet jerez but unfortunately he took CS and him self down., people tolerate that because this time everybody finish race JL will learn from this he always does next time it gonna be war :) we heard the bell now its time for round 2., but i guess that has to happen when the new rooster arrive to challenge the old one this seasons is going to be great 3 race 3 winners now i hoope for 4th winner in Le Mans

Got to respect JLo for having the cool head not to comment whilst still wound up but at the same time a little fireworks would have been more entertaining! In my opinion the move was dirty intentional or not, just like Doohan & Rossi's before.(Not a hater, Doohan the all time blue ribbon biking god with Rossi a close 2nd imo) & a little 'rubbing' ok but enough force to push somebody off track deserves punishment imo.

Marquez is a tw@t. An Extremely talented one.
He almost ran into the back of JLo twice and Yes, JLo did leave the door wide open going for drive out the corner and that is the exact reason there was no reason to collide with him. Or he try run JLo to the outside like he used to do with his Moto2 overtaking moves. I understand if JLo tried to close the door but he didnt. A Race incident it will be, just as much as Marquez is a tw@t. A warning should still be issued.
