The problem is that Marquez is making 'way too fast on the inside line' his standard move- many times on the last turn of the race. The other guy either lets him by or they both crash. Only Dovi beats him with it on his Ducati.

No- he deserves a penalty on the next race

I've seen races where back markers were penalized for not moving over to let a rider going a much higher speed.

Back markers are being lapped, doesn't matter that mm was faster, he still should respect track position of the rider in front and overtake safely when it's possible.

This pretty much summarizes the exceptional, extraordinary, and skewed way Rossi must be treated on the track.


"Everyone knows that Rossi is considered ‘untouchable’, so their contact set off a bomb that seemed to have been defused by now."

From an interview, with Sebastian Porto, TV commentator.

Jerez 05 was a dangerous precedent.

Angry Who runs motogp

I'm new to these forums but a long time motogp fan. I've only just watched the race from Argentina (because Britain seems to be the only place in Europe where you have to wait 3 days to watch highlights!).
What I'd like to know is who are the morons who run motogp! Marquez shouldn't have been on the track after ramming espargaro. Instead he's given the opportunity to ruin Ŕossi's race as well..absolutely ridiculous. That wouldn't happen in a well run series like f1.

I've become more and more disillusioned with the poor coverage of motogp in Britain and it's now got to the stage were, regretfully, I don't think I'll bother anymore! That hurts!!

Welcome to the forum Sassy. I'm surprised the coverage has become so bad in the UK, I wonder whose fault that is...


Regarding the race, frankly I think Rossi was doing a pretty good job of ruining his own race. There was a Yamaha M1 contesting the win all the way to the end, seems odd that an "inferior" rider with an old machine, likely deturned, was battling for the lead while Rossi was struggling for the top ten, taking wide turns and looking rather clumsy.

I agree, riders should not be ramming into people like that. Which reminds me of a report where Rossi rammed into a spectator in the paddock with his scooter.

Speaking of F1, do you think Rossi would have been given a race ban, disqualification, or black flag for crashing out Marc at Sepang?

It is regretful that the UK has lost its great coverage. Not just for GP, they don't get Premiere League coverage like they used to either, which I think is crazy. Hopefully Brexit restores the TV coverage you guys deserve.

He could of course not be a cheap skate and pay to watch, as for football the less its on tv the better its a girls sport.

It'll be Rossi's fault like everything else in your world
