MotoGP » Moto3: Estrella protest against Miller, Kent rejected


Insidejob: Marc didn't criticize Jack. He said,“I have a lot of experience about these situations with Race Direction!” said Marc, himself penalised for aggressive riding in the past. “I go into Race Direction many times for touching one time, one rider. But during one race to touch six, seven times. Always in the same situation, the same style. I've never seen in the past. “I don't know the decision of Race Direction, but Miller was really aggressive, but if Race Direction say he is able to do it I think my brother has enough potential and enough body to do it too.” And he's correct Jack was really aggressive. Something that Marc admits to being too.
Marquez chose to ignore a subtle difference as have you, he was crashing into other riders but JM was simply out riding AM and looking in control while he did it.

WillowRider85: Scary=Miller/250hp Motogp Bike! His riding tactics are well below this level of competition (poor sportsmanlike). He MAKES room by pushing others wide. Anyone out there CAN do that, but its unsportsmanlike and its DANGEROUS. He may be getting away with it on small Moto3 bikes, but the erratic/compulsive riding Miller has displayed will get people hurt fast in MotoGP.
The only difference I can see between the way Miller rides and MM rides is that Miller seems more controlled :)

Garcia:
martin.mm.108: I'd love to know if all the people here who call for "clean racing" race themselves.... all I see is Little Marquez being a major crybaby... dude was terrible at sepang. and on the best package. get it through your non racing, non riding heads... this is racing, not time trial.
Lol mister riding head, so you don't know what the difference is between hard racing and racing dirty? There is a difference you know. I think Marc Maquez explains it well for you, and he has made plenty hard passes and even dumb moves in the past, but l have never ever seen Marc Marquez race dirty. There is a big difference, it seems Miller like yourself needs to learn what it is.
MM has done his share of block passes ..........

Everybody wants to be associated with successful people am MM has been very successful and learnt quickly and is also a tidy clean cut package, first year in 125's his best position was third - second year he dominated it with I think 10 wins. Motogp he won in his first year but not without taking out a few other riders, he was riding beyond his abilities but it worked for him, he won the championship and this year he was able to back it up and ride a lot more considerately because he was more skilled. Suddenly he is criticising the riders that ride like he used to? Like him Miller has learnt to ride quickly without taking out other riders although he made his share of errors in earlier races, if anything he has learnt quicker than Marquez or maybe he isn't trying quite as hard? In contrast to his brother AM managed one win last year and 3 so far this year in his second year. It's hard to compare different years because there are so many variables but I doubt he will be the star his brother is, maybe none of the riders in Moto 3 this year will succeed in motogp ........only time will tell!

Motarde: I didn't appreciate witnessing Miller' cynical 'gamesmanship' in this race, and while it's true the Marquez brothers have both had their share of rash moves in the past, the difference is they were not deliberately and repeatedly trying to push their opponents out of a race as happened 5 or 6 times in this case. Race direction have chosen to avoid controversy and sustain interest in the championship by not imposing penalties but in the long run Miller's temperament will be his downfall in MotGP, while Alex Marquez will go on to be a deserving champion, if not this year in the future.
Miller suggested he could have easily pushed "Marquez out of the race" but from what I saw he was careful not to, the reality is that it is no longer possible to win in moto3 using old school etiquette - the Spanish riders have seen to that. As to who is going to win in the future in Motogp - who knows?

bikenut: Statistical trivia! Statistically based on the frequency of Miller finishing first this year and Marquez finishing on the podium I have calculated that Miller has a 15% chance of taking out the championship and Marquez has an 85% chance.
Actually make that 16.6% and 83.4% The problem for Marquez is if he tries to ride for a safe third he may end up well back so really he still needs to aim for first - which makes the statistics a bit useless Moto3 is not spread out like motogp usually is.
