Has it ever crossed your minds that there just a small chance they may have already spoke out side the media?? JL's been there and done it, he likes Marc and now they hes calmed down thas that,

There is no feud etc , it's all media crap to generate interest, I cant belive how easily people buy into whats fed them.

would like to see how good these top 4 actually are if every rider was on equal machinery. there are plenty of other riders out there who got the talent to be on top but are riding pos crt and satelite bikes.

Have said before Marquez is skillful but dangerous, needs to mature really fast or he IS going to HURT someone and not just himself, race direction need to reign him in quick, they did #58 Simmo so why not him, Oh sorry forgot he's Spanish and it's a Spanish run Championship LOL:-)

Marquez can be pretty reckless but so far in the motogp class he's been on his best behavious and the pass on Lorenzo was perfectly legal. It wasn't a neat move as he went in too fast and would have ran way wide if it hadn't been for Lorenzo panicking trying to close the line when it was too late and giving him a push that help him make the turn. It was Lorenzo who made the mistakes. Every rider in the paddock has shrugged the pass off as a normal racing incident, and not dangerous. The only one who's made a big deal about and has got the press talking has been Lorenzo by refusing to shake hands with Marquez or even tap champagne bottles on the podium.

Hitting Lorenzo's bike was the only way Marquez was going to stay on the track, and he knew it - should be penalised, but won't be because nobody has the guts to do it.
Won't be long before someone has a'car park talk' with Mark - better sooner than later.

Deano,

Marquez didn't hit Lorenzo, it was Lorenzo who hit Marquez. You need to watch the video again, it's on youtube. The video below shows the pass from a different camera angle, it's very clear:

The video (to me) shows Lorenzo reacting too late to Marc being next to him ... I cannot see how Marc can be blamed for this, Lorenzo should have sit up, let him pass and gun for the finish line.

I remember when Stoner got corner 3 at Phillip Island named after him last year, there was a press conference. Reporters asked the rest of the riders what corner they would like to have named after them. Lorenzo said he'd like to have one named after him at the Catalunya track, as it's his home track, and joked: "but not the last one". Now he gets his corner in Jerez and gets rossi'd at it straight away! haha Poor Jorge.

only the real talented rider could overtake with clean, lack of talent will cause unmeasured aggressivity like MM n VR at the same corner Doohan pass Criville without touching and still keep his racing line
