MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez made me lose the championship

I really think Rossi has miscalculated on all fronts here. It would have been better to keep his suspicions about race fixing to himself rather than trying to make a public scandal of it. And the personal attacks against Marquez in the Italian media were only ever going to make MM more determined to beat him on track. As for the race clash, that was just a terrible blunder that has already cost him dear. His ability as a racer may go unquestioned, but his reputation as a master of psychological tactics is pretty much in tatters.

MotoGP » Drama as Rossi takes down Marquez!

I'm not sure Rossi intended for Marquez to crash, and I'm not sure that he kicked out at Marquez (other than defensively). However, what he did UNQUESTIONABLY do was deliberately run Marquez wide and slow dangerously mid-corner, whilst looking at Marquez. That is beyond doubt. For that reason, I believe that both will receive a warning but that #46 will receive a penalty of some kind. And deservedly so, in my opinion. You just can't behave like that on track.
