MotoGP » Lorenzo 'maybe contact', Marquez 'it was exciting'


I'm sure it has happened many times over the years but that doesn't make it right. O.k., would any other current Motogp rider make exactly the same move on Lorenzo that Marquez did. I don't think so. It was clean up until that point. Hard but clean ref Biaggi/Abe in Brazil I think. A lot harder, but still clean. Hurtling up behind with admitted lack of concern is undefendable. Did you see Marquez in 125's and Moto2 ? Took out Kalio and Williarot in free practice, Corsi, Espagaro and I cannot remember the others...

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'maybe contact', Marquez 'it was exciting'


Lorenzo was riding hard, The gap was there, Lorenzo filled it, when Marquez went to hang off he found Lorenzo was already there and adjusted his line accordingly. excellent riding by BOTH RIDERS Then Marquez ran him over to the left Knowing that Lorenzo would be run off the track if he were not to roll off. This is not done in GP's Marquez just don't get it, and i guess most of you are new to gp's (10 years or less)

MotoGP » Lorenzo 'maybe contact', Marquez 'it was exciting'


O.k, I think many are not considering this.. The point of contention with Marquez is that he is wreckless, with total disregard for other peoples safety. Of course, this comes with the total and blatant disregard for the sense of fair play, sportsmanship, There are unwritten rules of racing and fairplay. THE POINT BEING, when you overtake you are by no means meant to slow your opponent, especially not forcing him to roll off. Marquez was out of the corner comfortably, and was only just past the "center line" He knew where Lorenzo was and then decided to continue drifting left, all the way onto the kerb, when Marquez did this, he was now travelling down the straight, in an upright position. The only reason, with obvious intent, was to cut off Lorenzo. THIS IS NOT DONE IN MOTORCYCLE GRAND PRIX. you do not slow your opponent, take his line, sqeeze him out or anything else. even the Block pass is considered bad form, but is tollorated, if not overused. It is the riding "Style" of Mar
