MotoGP » Marquez: Five points won’t change my life


Insidejob:
livewoutlimit: Is mm still being sore after 2 weeks? Still haven't accepted defeat? Did no one cite to him his corner-cutting laguna seca move? Did VR cry and moan after that race? I know he's still very young and got lots to learn... but dang, let's work on accepting defeat graciously, it's an important aspect of becoming a great sportsman and I believe he will.
2013 Laguna Seca MotoGP Post-Race Round Up: Of Marquez' Achievements, The Legality Of The Pass, And The Lone Yamaha Put that in your browser.
So what you are saying is that Rossi did nothing wrong, excellent! The only real differences being that Rossi didn't hit mm at Laguna, and didn't complain about it afterwards. ( he did have a joke at livios expense about it though)

MotoGP » Espargaro: Looks like anything goes on last corner...


vkoptchev: It is clearly visible from the video footage that Rossi was not always ahead, as he claims. Mark reached the apex side by side with him, and was able to stop sufficiently to take the corner. Rossi was carrying more speed at the apex, brushed by Marquez and went on rallying.
Well apart from that he was not ahead at any point, and even having transferred some of his momentum to Rossi in the act of running in to him, still couldn't stop himself enough to prevent him cutting the left corner of the chicane! But apart from that.....

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


vkoptchev: Where is the helicopter shot that proves "at every stage Rossi was ahead"? Anywhere I look Marquez appears to make a successful block pass beating Rossi to the apex.
Well you could look at the footage shown on bits port (which is the footage that was released to the world, which clearly shows Marquez is never more than halfway along rossis bike, when he hits him in the back of the arm and leg. But if you are too daft to find that........

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


Lol giveaway, I'll have to repeat it I see, weird that one would take a shortcut that added 0.8 seconds to your lap time in order to win a race?! How exactly should (could) he have made the turn when the person who hit him didn't even make the corner, and ended up on the AstroTurf on the inside of the left? As for the winning margin, look how slowly Marquez is going after cutting the inside of the left (inside the curb, on the AstroTurf ) he never really gets back on the throttle, having realised his kamikaze dive hadn't played off, and slowly rolls down to the start line, there is your 1.2 seconds!

I find it difficult to believe that Rossi would deliberately initiate contact with an out of control rider, simply to be able to drive through the gravel, causing him to lose approx 0.8 seconds compared to taking the corner normally (watch the lap again, look at the splits, Rossi was faster up to the last sector than the previous lap, but finished it 0.8 seconds slower. mm was also faster than on the previous lap but finished 1.? Slower) You don't think it perhaps more likely that the impact from Marquez (who also cut the left corner of the chicane) cost them both time? If Rossi had taken his normal line, or tried to make the corner after the impact, they would both have crashed (as Marquez didn't even manage to stay on the track) they would both have gone down.

MotoGP » MotoGP Assen - Race Results


I'm loving the people saying Rossi hit Marquez on purpose so he could go across the gravel! Did you guys actually watch the race? Rossi was on the racing line, Marquez was out of control. Rossi has his knee on the deck when he was hit, Marquez was nowhere near as far over. Marquez didn't even manage to make. Second corner, cutting across the AstroTurf. Oh and the real clincher, Rossi and Marquez were both lapping faster than the previous lap, right up till the final chicane (check the splits) yet Rossi finished .8 of a second slower, and Marquez more than a second slower. Weird that you would chose to go across the gravel in an attempt to win when it costs you the best part of a second (anyone would have thought the loss of time might be down to collecting things back up after being hit, and then having to go across the gravel, where traction is somewhat more limited than it is on nice grippy Tarmac)

MotoGP » MotoGP Race Director talks Rossi, Marquez incident


I have to laugh at the people saying Rossi initiated contact so that he could take a short cut, and took a 1.2 second advantage from it. Weird that his lap was slower than the previous lap, even though he was up on his lap time right up until the last section of the lap. Interesting people saying that mm was faster than vs, when vs was leading they were in the 1:33s and when Marquez was leading they were in the 1:34s. Also watch the replays, Rossi on the same line he'd taken all race, Marquez on a totally different line, sliding and losing the front on the way in before he'd even reached the curb....... Mm tried an impossible overtake from too far back in desperation. If vr hadn't stood it up, they'd have both been on the floor. Vs had no option but to go across the gravel, and when that decision had been made for you, opening the throttle to keep the front from digging in is the only sensible choice (as anyone who's ridden through sand / mud will tell you)
