Yamaha boss calls on Race Direction to hold Marquez talks

Yamaha boss Massimo Meregalli believes MotoGP’s Race Direction should speak to world championship leader Marc Marquez about his riding tactics following the recent controversial Jerez race. But Meregalli doesn’t want the four-member Race Direction to speak to the Repsol Honda rider about his aggressive move on reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo at the last corner of the Spanish Grand Prix.

Were the roles reversed going into turn 6,you would not have heard Nakamoto and Co. moan. Reason being that they never get sucked up into emotional distress based on the rider's decision in the moment. Afterall,their viewpoint has always been its 80% bike and 20% rider. The bike didn't make the decisions during the race,so it would have been all okay with them were the shoe on the other foot.

Oh yeah! Hugelean. Spare us the Honda best bike crap afore ye get started yet again.

Is an accident waiting to happen simple as, if he injures himself fine but chances are he will injure someone else, his pass on the last corner wasnt a pass it was a crash. It doesn't take skill or bravery to miss your braking point by a mile and use someone else as a crash barrier.

I hate to say it but compared to F1 GP is in the stoneage, too much power for one country, uneven playing field, rules not followed for certain riders. Just look at Marquez stunt on Espargaro last year, he should have been banned for a long time for that yet  the ban he was given was actually overturned by the series organisers. Never happen in a miliion years in F1. As for wanting all the riders to ride like Marquez, if they did half the field would be in the gravel by the 10th lap.

Mr krabs shut up

really ......have i just  read your comment right lets just do the basics first did marquez use lorenzo as a "bumper"??? no did lorenzo still tip in even though marquez was level???? yes was this a case of two riders giving it 100% and racing your damn skippy.

now if marquez had used lorenzo as a "bumper" a couple of things would have happened both riders would have been sat in the gravel trap hand bags at dawn etc etc also marquez wouldnt have been able to turn the bike it would have been impossible. this is racing its dangerous people get hurt its part of it was he riding out of control no was he in control yes i now your arm chair racers are the next best thing but save your bitching and moaning for when your sat with your mates in the pub or in front of a mirror

stop belly aching !

It was an opportunity that any one of the top riders would of taken,Yamaha should worry more about getting more speed out of the M1 and their number two rider getting up to speed than putting the reigns on the competition

Some of the MOTOGP riders and team members should watch WSB before they start to complain. because the WSB riders give 100% incidents are bound to happen and this is it with Marquez, he is riding at 100% and good on him, not only is he extremley fast he really wants to win .

Give it a rest Yamaha

FFS, if you're that concerned, sod off from MotoGP. Racing is dangerous when ridden at 100%

PS, maybe he was riding like that because Lorenzo was like a mobile chicane through there.

Ban em Both

Then eventually we might run out of spanish riders , and have a world championship . The number of spaniards on the best bikes  in MotoGP is unbelievable and set to get worse once cals thrown on the scrapper , dont  dorna  find it embarrassing?

It's obvious from Herve that Crutchlow is on a factory bike - certainly one of the best on the grid. If he ends up on the scrapper, then it's his own fault - not the Spanish, not Dorna nor anyone else. Why didn't he sign that two-year Tech3 deal?

Yamaha reveal details of YZR-M1 lease plan sort of sugests there is a slight dif between Cals bike and the factoy bike and can anyone blame Cal for wanting to make some real money by riding for a works team,even a bad Ducati next year shouldn't be far off a Tech3.
