"We were going so fast, there was not a lot of space on the left side," he said. "He was close to Jack and he came back into the race line for Turn 1. I was also there.

"It was a pity, because I could have done a nice race. I was feeling good, I wanted to be in first or second or third to [use] my pace and maybe pull away. Maybe I could have pulled away with Maverick [Vinales], I don't know."

He added that he's already cleared the air with Marquez, who managed to stay on his bike but was forced to retire from the race due to the impact.

"I went to him just to say sorry, because I totally destroyed the back of his bike," the Frenchman added. "He told me no worries, the most important thing is that I didn't injure myself.

"As a racer, as a sportsman, we totally understand each other."

Apparently, the most popular pastime here is people proving they're smarter than idiots.

If he had never more or less fluked what was intended to be a 1 year place keeping factory Ducati ride he might have continued his whole career as a back marker crasher.
Absolutely. His duels with Lorenzo on the 250s were fierce.

Dream on with this rubbish about blocking ... so why did Zarco NOT go to Honda? Think about it.

And today, we witness Marquez the village idiot do yet another stupid move that could have ended Zarco's life ... Marquez knew Zarco was right next to him as came along side ... then Marquez moves over in front of Zarco and hits the brakes!! What? Where exactly did Marquez think Zarco would go? Just magically disappear?
You are an absolute idiot, proven grade A! If you were paying attention to this sport over the last 25 years or so you would have learn some things. Most recently Zarco came out & said it! He even made mention of it in a previous press conference. And YES, the title was done to bait idiots like you who claim to be watching motogp before rossi.

Also it is the person behind responsibility to make sure they don't run into the person in front of them. Zarco already explained what happened. Did he place blame on Marc? Once again, You are an absolute idiot, proven grade A!

Go over here and do some reading on drafting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drafting_(aerodynamics)

Also if the title upsets you, maybe you should worship a different rider.

This is all fabulously interesting but I'd like to focus on the underlined part.


If it is like you say, then why did Zarco went apologizing to Marquez right after he came back to his box?

No point arguing with idiots Holypuck. Once they drag you down to their level, they will just beat you with experience.
