Hard but fair Stig?

Hard yes, but please explain to me which part of MM slamming into JL and using him as a berm way deeper than the apex was fair?

Simple Nostro

MM's ambition outweighed his talent.  He's the fastest out there but he's got a lot to learn.

MM is Honda's No.1, so he can't go wrong, he used JL as an additional brake, and another step higher on the podium was the result. He's behaved well to that point, but now he wants the title at any cost, so I think we'll see him revert back to his Moto2 style. Well handled by JL. I'm expecting to see anyone in the way of MM from now on to get the same treatment.

Spare a thought

for the passing of one of cinemas greats - we may view the VR-CS-JL-MM show as theatrics, but this man made history and brought to life that which never could exist:

It was a stupid senseless move that proves that Marquez has no regard for his own or anyone elses safety, he is convinced of his own invulnerability. Don't get me wrong, I was a great fan of Marco Simoncelli  and loved to see him race because he raced with his heart and I was devastated when he lost his life. Marquez is something way different, I have followed his progress up through the various classes over the years and he has proven many times that no one on the track matters in any way, they are not people just obstacles between him and the top step of the podium. I am not a psychiatrist and therefore not qualified to comment on sociopathic tendencies but he is not kicking a football round a field trying to hack peoples legs out from under them, he is partaking in a sport which is already dangerous enough without his antics.

it was hard it was blatant it was unfair

But it was awesome!!! Great to see some bitterness in the championship. Its nice to see jorge not getting his own way for the first half of the season like last year...i dont want anyone to get hurt but do want to see proper hatred between contenders....like the days of yore...keep the points close and the battles vicious!!!!

I'm sorry owldhairybiker but if you care about your opponent then you'll not win anything, ever. You have to be ruthless to win. Being soft and feeling guilty is an emotion that world champions cannot have. It's the same in all walks of life. Anyone successful in anything from criminals to business people to sports stars all have no feelings for anyone but themselves.

Lozenger missed the corner, Marquez took the inside oppotunity, Lozenger turned into him. either out of sheer panic to cover the corner or what I think happened, on purpose. Either way it makes for great exciting racing, something the sport has been lacking for a few years now. We want fairing bashing and elbow bashing, just like we used to have.

hmm

The move was fair just due to the amount of room Lorenzo left, it looked like he knew Marco was going to make a lunge. However it was Marco who went in too hot and if he took out Lorenzo then he would have looked really stupid. Just a racing incident and tbh I don't want this to turn into F1 where there are penalties left right and center.. Lorenzo though has matured a lot, he know how to handle the press now. I don't think anyone can touch him, not even Rossi, who lets be honest is looking like a mediocre rider right now.
