MotoGP » Rossi: Sorry to Marc for pass


Realist: He's aggressive, and he has 2 more WC's than everybody on the grid other than Rossi and Lorenzo.
Agreed (except for Hayden - this guy has a championship under his belt - would you believe it.). For one thing however this doesn't justify the aggression. After all, the others managed whatever they managed without such aggression. For another, it would be interesting to see if he would still be as competitive as he is if he were to shave-off some of his aggression and start riding as the responsible sportsman he should be. Remember this sport is no joke - it can be lethal.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sorry to Marc for pass


Liam94: You still didn't give any examples, when and how has he hit or pushed anyone? I can think of maybe one since moving to MotoGP (...)
They are too many to list here and obviously I won't go into the trouble of watching again every race he has participated in just to figure out this statistic. Lorenzo in '13, Pedrosa last year (the famous "sensor" incident) and Rossi this year are to name but a few. Marquez has bumped more people in 2+1/2 years of racing than all the other riders combined.

MotoGP » Rossi: Sorry to Marc for pass


Liam94: How has he screwed people's races many times? When exactly has this happened?
Have you forgotten how many times he used other riders as a berm, hitting & pushing them wide in the process and making them lose places or their focus? It may not be exactly "screwing" per se but it's a problem nonetheless. I was fond of Marquez's fighting mentality but now I've realised that he just doesn't have any regard of the danger of getting physical and consequently does not respect his competitors. It's such a pity that he didn't race alongside Stoner. Similar talents, diametrically different racing mentalities... it would have been awesome to watch, both the race and the post-race antics and intrigue...

MotoGP » Rossi: Sorry to Marc for pass


Realist: While he a cleaner rider, Rossi was aggressive when he was younger and will still ride aggressively now (just not on the ragged edge like MM93). Simoncelli was aggressive too, yet, you guys give him a pass now because he's deceased?!?!? (...) I think Marquez makes his mistakes, but he still rides pretty responsibly overall. He has always pushed a bike to the outer limits, even in the lower classes.
Agreed, again, and also about Rossi. Cleaner yet still aggressive is a good definition for him. The thing about Marquez is that he has done moves that from their onset it was obviouslyimpossible to avoid contact and this signifies that in his mentality he has lifted the risk from "will I hit him or not?" to "will I drop him or not". Which for me is a big difference. Responsibility is a subjective matter because oftentimes it is associated with results but my personal view on this issue -and especially about potentially lethal activities- is that the

MotoGP » MotoGP Le Mans - Race Results


Iannone... gotta hand it to him. Fought bravely, impressively and insistently before he was forced to give in. He and Marquez also saved the race from being a borefest. I can't but feel impressed by Rossi - so many problems with pace throughout the weekend, yet he was up there, once again. And, once again, he taught a clear lesson to people who think that race results can be determined by free practice and qualifying. Marquez on pole and no podium. Rossi from 3rd row and finishing 2nd. How can this be explained according to their simplistic logic? Some people on this forum have been made to look like complete fools, again and again and they don't seem to learn. Spare the proclamations, irony and hatred people, more often than not it comes back to you.
