Marquez did take a look as he approached the end of the pitlane, TWICE..the final time just as he re-joined the race track. As he crosses the line he is leading the race and it becomes the responsibility of the rider behind and in 2nd place - Lorenzo - to pass safely.
Marquez is trying to control a wheelying 250bhp GP bike, banging up through the gears, leant over while taking care to stay left and not cross the white line on a very narrow exit - a task Pedrosa failed to do, earning him the drop place penalty.
Marquez' focus is going forward, he is in the lead. Lorenzo can see everything in front and chose to go in hot missing his brake marker and drifted wide. Irresponsible?
Don't know about you..but I find it difficult to sometimes take a good "lifesaver" while busy in traffic when all my protective gear restricts movement and rely on my mirror. RCV's don't have mirrors and I should imagine take a fair bit of concentration to point in the right direction at the best of times.
Many people, including Jorge, were worried about pitlane exit safety before the race. So why having identified the danger did he go barrelling into MM wide of his regular line when he could see?
Analogies of joining the motorway at 50mph and heading straight for the fast lane are selective, unrealistic and display a lack of understanding.
Motorway entry roads are long and straight allowing vehicles to accelerate and match their speed with the main flow..the lengthened speed limit and narrow curved exit at PI didn't allow this.
Perhaps they should have had traffic lights and stopped riders until the track was clear..communicating with a spotter further up the straight who could see what was coming and wasn't blind because of the hump in the track?
No..that wouldn't be racing, would it?
On a side note..most of this MM bashing seems to be emanating from bitter Stoner fans. I wonder why?
