Sorry to say that this was a 50/50 move..Jorge left the door wide open and MM being MM took the chance as he should. Heavy move but a defo incident!! The press want a rivalry and this is just a plea to get it there, I just hope MM does figure out that you cannot ride like he did at jerez after lap and A) stay on and B) not take some poor soul out. He has a great style but it is ragged as..Exciting but will not always work i.e. Sachsenring,Catalunya,Laguna et al!!

I believe a rivalry is born, but this was a matter of time really. To me it was clear these two didn't like each other from the beginning,. Marquez -so far- has been very polite when passing Rossi and Pedrosa, but I am sure he was dying to have a go at Lorenzo and this time he didn't mind his manners so much. It will all depend on how Lorenzo takes it. He seems to have mature a lot in recent years and was very cool when dealing with the journalists after the race but it was obvious he was really pissed off. Back in the day he never really gave in to Rossi's mind games but this time is different cause this time he's the world champion and Marquez is the new guy. I think he'll be feeling the pressure now. Let's see how he handles it.

In the past I have read that when Doohan past Criville there that Doohan was aggressive! He didn't even touch criville And Criville seemingly Gas'd it up too early and spun his own ride.
I'd never seen the race until today.

What about a move in the corner 6 in the last lap. Did Jorge left the door open there? Left the door open, it's good joke i hear these days. Anyway, big difference between going defensive in the corner and leaving the door open. With that logic every time that rider doesn't do defensive line his leaving the door open. It's not like Marc made the corner without Lorenzo's bike stopping him. Anyway it would be the same even if Jorge took the defensive line, Marc would do it anyway, I'm pretty sure about that and it would probably end in the similar way. Jorge should have dealt with it like in the corner 6, but i believe him when he says he thought Marc was further away.

no one crashed, and no one was hurt, it was fine. Fair play to him!

It was the only part of the whole race worth watching. I hope Marquez goes on to win the championship (unless Rossi starts pulling a few wins out.....I'll put my yellow pants back on then.)

This is racing incident. Feud should start when both man got something at their hands. Championship is still very long and we are not even at the quarter of the season.

could of been worse like when he took out Corsi at Valencia in FP,
or like when he took out Ratthapark in the cool down lap in P.I
or like the punting Luthi off the track at qatar.
or like when he took out Espargaro in Catalunya.
