Rossi wasn't hot going into the chicane and he was able to hit the apex just prior to Marquez hitting him. There's nothing that suggest that Rossi wouldn't have been able to navigate the chicane. Marquez hit Rossi hard enough that Rossi's front tire appeared to momentarily tuck. Rossi had two choices, stand his bike up and brake hard prior to going into the gravel, or stand his bike up and attempt to accelerate through the gravel.

I don't blame Marquez for his wild attempt to pass Rossi going into the chicane, that's what expected of him. That said, he screwed up, was too hot, and made contact with another rider... then in parc ferme instead of owning his mistake(s), he bitched about Rossi cutting the corner even though he screwed up enough that he couldn't stay on track either.

Marquez did not stay within the track limits.

He didn't, Lorenzo was the only rider on the podium to stick to the rules.

Thats not as bad as what Rossi did to Sete at Jerez. The big difference is the track design. Also I don't think Marc put a hole in Rossi's calf with his foot peg. If that was considered a fair move then Marcs should have too. Meaning Rossi should have been penalized for cutting the track just like he was in Austin vs Zarco.

Rossi was only penalized in Austin because he gained time on Marquez after Zarco's bad pass attempt forced him off track (the pentaly wasn't to make things even with Zarco). Assen 2015 is different because Marquez forced Rossi off-track, so the rider he gained an advantage over was the same one who caused the incident.

But he didn't cause Rossi to run cut the corner, Rossi made that choice on his own. Marquez move was hard but Rossi didn't have to make the choice he made.n Marc cleanly pulled up beside Rossi into the start of that chicane because Rossi chose not to take a defensive line. That piece of track Rossi wanted no longer belonged to him so he cut the corner. You put yourself in that position in the final corner of the final lap than the consequence is on you.

Marquez made it an easy choice because there was no where else for Rossi to go. Rossi was on the proper line to negotiate the chicane at race pace. Marquez forced him off line onto a wide trajectory that led off track. Rossi's choices were to go off track while braking or go off track while accelerating and hoping to make it through the gravel. Either way, Marquez forced him off the track which is exactly why Rossi received no penalty.

Rossi was in the lead going into the chicane, he could take any line he wanted. Marquez knew he needed to get in front of Rossi before the apex to "take the line" from Rossi, but he failed.

Rossi left the door open. Sure Rossi was on the best line for a fast lap but not the best line for a last lap fight. Fact is Marc was far enough to take the inside line away from Rossi which means Rossi cannot turn into that spot, thats his fault. Cutting that corner should have gotten him a time penalty. Rossi gave up on that corner the moment he realized he could go straight. Had that been a proper corner I have no doubt he would have fought for track position.

Bro the helicopter view shows exactly what happened. Going into the chicane Rossi swung wide to get on the fastest line to negotiate the chicane. The act of moving to the outside of the track looks like Rossi is leaving the door open for Marquez, but he's really not. Marquez is attempting to out-brake Rossi which means he's going to have to carry more entry speed AND negotiate the corner using the tighter inside line! Again, Marquez was trying to turn much tighter than Rossi while carrying a lot more speed... it just wasn't going to happen. Rossi cut back toward the apex because that's the exact line he needed to be on and Marquez was not in front of him so he still had line preference. Marquez made contact with Rossi slightly after the apex and if Rossi didn't stand his bike up both of them would've likely ended up in the gravel.

Unless Marquez got his front tire in front of Rossi's (he clearly didn't), he never got far enough to take any line from Rossi. He tried, he failed, he had to accept his 2nd place. If any rider was going to receive a penalty, he would've had to be Marquez.
