Lorenzo still simmering over Marquez incident?

16 May 2013

It appears that MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo isn't ready to put his last turn clash with Marc Marquez at Jerez behind him.

According to GPOne.com Lorenzo made his anger clear at the lack of action taken by Race Direction, during a riders' meeting at Le Mans on Thursday.

“In football, you just take off your shirt to get a yellow card, in Formula 1 every manoeuvre is under the microscope while here no one does anything,” the reigning double world champion is quoted as saying.

The Yamaha star is said to have added that action should have been taken because Marquez would not have made the corner without the contact.

Rookie Marquez, who now leads the world championship for Repsol Honda heading into this weekend's French round, snatched second place when he bumped past Lorenzo at the final turn of their home Spanish MotoGP.

Lorenzo will get the chance to air his views in public during the pre-event Le Mans press conference, later today.
