Marc Marquez didn't fear penalty after Jorge Lorenzo collision

Marc Marquez says he wasn’t worried that his hard overtake on title rival Jorge Lorenzo at the end of Sunday’s Spanish MotoGP race would result in a penalty from Race Direction. Marquez snatched a last gasp second with a bold braking move at the final corner that gave him the outright lead in the world championship. Factory Yamaha rider Lorenzo though was...

Again my memory perhaps fails me in my old age, doubting T. I recall no vociferous opposition being gathered by Rossi during most of his glittering career, but rather universal appreciation and acclamation, until relatively late in his career when a rider or two became genuinely competitive with him, creating far more whinging and petulance in an element among his fandom than was ever displayed by the riders concerned or their fans.

I think Valentino, as opposed to MM, is possibly the safest rider there has ever been, and his passes have generally been  things of beauty perfectly conceived, set-up and executed, and seldom if ever of the crudeness of MM's Lorenzo pass. I except the Gibernau last corner Jerez pass from this, the only move of his career I would label unequivocally dirty.

I don't have much problem with MM's race riding. I would see the recent incident as crude but similar to Pedrosa -Simoncelli and Stoner -Bautista, with blame allocated according to the perception of and status of the riders concerned, with Stoner deservedly copping  criticism for hypocrisy given his previous public stance and the circumstances of that particular week-end.

I don't see any defence for some of MM's practice incidents though, particularly the attempted murder-suicide involving Willairot.

Interesting DF

I'm sure even when he was winning Rossi was building an opposition. It's the way of the world.

Anyway, speaking of TV, toad, saturn, looks like BT has got the deal from 2014 on.
