MotoGP » Honda withholds Sepang clash data


Therefore, I believe that the contact between Rossi and Marquez and the resulting fall was a racing incident because there was no intent on either side. The events that lead up to that contact were not a racing incident because both parties had a degree of intent. Rossi has been punished for that and there was no punishment for Marquez because there is no rule against what he did. Although as I speculated about 10 days ago, it seems they are going to introduce some in 2016. Yet more rules introduced because of Marquez.

MotoGP » CAS confirms Rossi to start last at Valencia


I wonder if Marquez will actually ride the bike like Honda pay him to or will he seal the deal. After all the good groundwork it would be a shame to let it go to waste. Best to pretend to have a 'great battle' with Lorenzo and then concede because 'Jorge was just too fast today and in Australia I did promise Jorge to not mess up his title'. The press will lap it up and the posters on crash will say 'see Lorenzo beat Marquez fair and square'.

MotoGP » Honda withholds Sepang clash data


As described on the MotoMatters site. Honda are going to release the data that shows Marquez fell over because he pulled the brake. Obviously since he ran into the side of Rossi and Rossi pushed him away with his knee. Whether the running into Rossi is what pushed on Marquez's arm, or Rossi pushing him away did it, is moot. The other thing they will show is some lap times to justify Marquez's "cooling tire" story. None of which exonerates Marquez from having a part to play in this debacle. Honda will not do themselves any favours by maintaining that they are completely innocent.

And it goes without saying that Rossi played his part. He was the one that ran Marquez wide in the first place. I know why Marquez was flopped on the side of Rossi's bike, it was a rhetorical question, he anticipated that Rossi would turn in and accelerate at that time. A perfectly rational expectation. However, it would seem that Rossi planned to bring them both to a dead stop or react to Marquez if he switched to the inside.

geoffrey.spears.52: So, Rossi will just be going through the motions in free practice to work on his setup. I wonder if he'll be allowed to participate in qualifying since no matter where he places, he's still starting from the back of the grid. All he could do is get a little more practice in the qualifying round, but having him there when he's not actually competing for a grid position would be unfair to those who are. Also having Rossi out of the way would make room for a rider who normally has to go through Q1 to pass directly into Q2.
You should ask your buddy Marquez about that, he is the expert at starting from the back of the grid.

SSorcereRR:
Codger: Rossi could use Qualifying to sort out tyre performance. Stick on tyres that have 15 laps on them then go flat out for 6 laps. Maybe they should ban him from Qually too ? (For the 'haters' to answer)
Well they should or at least not allow him to be in Qualifying as he will be a hinderance to other riders and he can "play with Lorenzo's championship by slowing him down"
Yeah let's get them to change the rules because SSorcereRR thinks it is a good idea. Just messin with ya. I know that you only started watching MotoGP last week when one of your facebook buddies showed you a video from Sepang, but the 'start from the back' rule is not new.
