Marquez is a talented but a punk. Slamming into opponents is different from rubbing fairings. When he ends up stuck under a bike wth the rear wheel trying to tear off his arm ala Melandri, then we'll hear his chatter

" and the way crutchlow has managed to come out of the shadows of Dovi is amazing."

No offence to Dovi, But he aint that great... ONE 1st place in a wet race after 5 years on a factory bike, and mainly took the podium when one of the Aliens were out..

Crutchlow has the balls... I reckon his win is not too far off.

I agree with what Balance said. Cal has a bit of fear. He gets nervous and screws up at times. He is hot headed, not cool headed. Marquez is also hot headed, but in a more aggressive/arrogant way, whereas Cal just wants to get a better result. I think this commentary is showing mutual respect, but also a bit of butt-kissing. Cal is a lone horse out there and his gentleman's-sport attitude will get raped by those more hungry racers.

I agree with you Stylo. Marquez comes across as modest in official interviews, but you see his true character when he thinks you aren't watching. He is verging on sociopathic aggressive 'me first', 'i am better' attitudes. Yes, he will win fans. People will join the 'winners bandwagon'. But watch a few years from now, he will undo himself by creating one too many enemies and will get taken down as fast as he rose.

@ crashnetdummies...

lol hating?
do you really need someone to list the various times Rossi has rubbed fairings with others?

Lorenzo and pedrosa are very talented riders but Rossi takes them to town on this one..

A while back biaggi pushed rossi off track on the straight at Suzuka I think it was, they were going at it so hard.. receiving a middle finger and a solid **** kicking later that day I'm sure biaggi was in no doubt Rossi didn't mind bashing fairings..

The attitude between these two is exactly what this sport needs. They were pushing, pushing hard and they touched, AND LAUGHED ABOUT IT AFTERWARDS! THAT IS RACING MY FRIENDS!!!

These two have been the highlight of the season TBH.
