That grin on Marquez's face when Rossi refused was hilarious. I don't think Marquez needs any more motivation to win races but I'm sure this will add to it.

Was going to say the same but refrained not wanting to be accused of starting shit - especially when it's so quiet - this being when flame wars so easily get started.

That little bastard has some nerve to offer his hand after Sepang 15, deliberate destroy Rossi championship even attempting to knock him off his bike with deliberate chopping across his front. Then Valencia right after where he refuse to pass Jorge and nearly crash Dani to prevent HIM from passing too. All this was orchestrate to screw Rossi and his championship. And this little prick want to shake hands? Wow. Talk about a 2 face shit. If Vale ever shakes hands or trust this guy again, I stop watching.

What a fascinating exhange. From a body language perspective I think MM here is very clever. Clearly this was an opportunity to assert his dominance upon VR in a public setting and a way to maintain the narrative that he is an unwilling participant in all this. He gave VR a cross to hang himself on and unfortunately VR grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

Of particular interest is the way he offers the hand. Clearly there is no real effort here as he maintains a closed posture and only gestures at the shake. Upon the (obvious and sheepish) rejection he immediately shrugs as if to say "see, what can I do?!".

I think VR has been very naive here and upon watching it back will probably be aware of the powerplay by MM.

Very subtle and quite well done by Marc, a bit clumsy and not well managed by VR who was looking for any reason he could find to avoid the hand shake and MM didn't need to be a rocket scientist here to predict VR's response.

For all that think I'm seeing things here, I'd like to point out that you don't get to be a world champion at this level without being a very shrewd operator when it comes to interpersonal relationships. MM has 5 premier class wins and I would bet the house on him using every tool at his disposal to ensure his place at the top perch of the sport.

I wonder from whom he learnt how to play such games.
