Should Marquez be applauded for his tough riding antics?

Eight years ago Valentino Rossi won the Jerez MotoGP race from Sete Gibernau with a hard final corner overtake that put the Spainiard in the gravel. Sunday's Jerez race saw a near-repeat of the incident, with Marquez forcing Lorenzo wide at the same corner. With Lorenzo fuming the move will almsot certainly have consequences... So, we ask, should he face the consequences?...

Yes. Lorenzo left the door wide open for a good overtake. Pity his observation skills weren't that good. I mean, how do you miss an orange and white motorcycle...?

Whatever anyone says, If I had been in Lorenzo's place I would have knocked Marquez on his arse in Park Fermee.

Neither for me

IMO it's not something that should be encouraged or discouraged. It's the choice of the rider at that particular moment in that particular situation as to what's acceptable with his peers.

My only issue is that if it becomes a regular occurrence and there's an increased chance that people will be knocked off and/or injured then it may have to be looked at but right here right now it's a bit of storm in a tea cup I reckon.

They had a little fairing kiss and I'm sure both of them will think about what happened, re-evaluate it and they will now both realise where they stand with the other.

Marquez needs to consider how full on he wants to be and Lorenzo needs to close the door and not give him or anyone else a sniff as the anty has officially been upped.

One of Lorenzo's weaknesses is that he doesn't like it up him, it unsettles him and effects him greatly if people are a bit "rough." Simoncelli & Rossi were both happy to bang fairngs etc and they both unsettled Lorenzo.

Marques had the inside line and Lorenzo should have seen him and avoided him. Poor riding on the part of Lorenzo i think!!

Ooooh, I bet that really upset Lorenzo, getting nerfed off on a corner named after him! It really is a racing moment, not an incident or near death experience, why on earth are people getting so wound up about it? Let's hope this introduces a bit of emotion to what is otherwise becoming a bit " F1 boring" class. Fufhuksake, these are young fellas racing on a track, there's no other traffic to worry about. Or, should all the bikes be wrapped in a bubble wrap cocoon, with riders told off for RACING when the reigning world champion chucks a major hissy fit when he gets a rogering from a young upstart......

Right, time for my synchronised wheelbarrow formation dancing while wearing full protective clothing and helmet and goggles plus fireproof underwear class.
