Absolutely ridiculous. Marquez could NOT have been aware of the FOLLOWING bike. Anyone who has saved a near-crash will appreciate the TOTAL absorption with SURVIVAL that Marquez undoubtedly experienced. Anyone who has seen an opportunity to overtake will understand Espargaro's state of mind - but it's up to the FOLLOWING rider to use his/her discretion - the LEADING rider has the right of way. This was a classic example of a "racing incident" where no malice was intended. Marquez is an aggressive, young rider who is still learning his trade. The same applies to Espagaro. NEITHER of them was to blame. That's racing. Neither should be penalised.
