MotoGP » Marquez, Pedrosa agreement 'almost impossible'


'What needs to be understood is whether this could have been avoided – both the incident between the two riders and the accident itself – because those are the two important aspects' - Javier Alonso

Pedrosa is a rider, he's not Honda. Should he turn the other cheek just because it's his team mate that could kill him? He's not the only one who might benefit from a penalty in the long run either.
What did you think of your hero building a wall between himself and Lorenzo, what sort of team mate would do that then?

MM should calm down a little bit & not go at it like a bull in a china shop. All he has to do is not to try manic passes !! He is showing how fast he is but he needs to respect the other riders. How often have you seen JL look over his shoulder & then let someone pass without any resistance whatsoever !!( he was not going to be involved in being possibly wiped-out by MM)

Whether Dorna wants more media coverage or not.

Marquez needs to stop bulldozing into other riders. It's not about the cable that broke, it's about the fact that Marquez does these kind of moves ALL the time.

That's not racing, it's rather stupid. These kind of moves can have serious consequences for his competitors. He managed to evade (slighty touch) Pedrosa this time, but he could also have taken him out instantly. Seriously injuring him in the process. How can riders defend themselves if Dorna let's Marquez do this? They will want to let him pass before he gets desperate and hits them.

Marc Marquez is a racer! He wants to win! This is what it is all about. Do you really not want riders to take that risk, not go for that gap, not have that will to win the race? This is a dangerous sport, we have all seen the results of what can go wrong, but it is a fast and often furious sport that has us all enthralled and on the edge of our seat! Take all this away and what will be left ??
There is a big difference between dirty moves and those that are part and parcel of what we love to watch. Marc Marquez is not a dirty rider and he is in just as much a dangerous position as any of them. This is MotoGP and if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen!!

Kris Pradez - No, I'm not wrong. Go look at the vid. Hayden was following him at the time, he started to lose the front, and got stuck. You can see from his onboard, and then you can watch motogp footage and see the same thing.

It was analyzed and analyzed - EVERYONE that has a clue said it was that - him being stuck and the rear tire pushing him back into traffic.

It had nothing to do with aggressive riding.

Know what you are talking about if you're going to talk about it.

I can't post links, but just search on crash.net for information. Search Valentino Rossi speaks about crash. It's obvious.

It's a very good point some people have made here on this thread.
It's a very bad idea to penalise MM, say to the back of the grid, not only because it's unfair - if you take this last incident - but also because they will only achive exactly the contrary of what they propose to do (what this might be nobody really knows) since MM will have to cut through the field to get back to the front.. and he's not likely to tap each rider's tank asking for permission to pass....

re: "In fact, MM should be awarded a prize, because the involuntary incident he induced, opened the eyes towards a wrong placed sensor as faulty designing, BEFORE any casualty might have eventually happened"

per the wisemen... it's not a problem, it's an opportunity.
