fair points but
saturn - that's why I worded it "finding" a way, because I don't have any practical ideas, and apparently not many people do. It's an extremely difficult situation to do anything about, but it's certainly a problem.
Airbag leathers seem like they could help in some accidents, and I think worthy of further development. I've also hear of warning lights on the dash or in helmets, but I can see how this might be problematic.
If this issue got the attention that Marquez's (and others') "dangerous riding" does, maybe I could discuss other ideas.
bulto - Marc's moves are a regular occurence, but that's because it isn't "only luck" that keeps him from "floating" into other riders. It's obvious to me that the kid has a level of control the others do not have.
I don't wanna hear about last year's Dangerous Move On Dani.
And yes, of course there would've been a sh*tstorm had he taken Rossi and/or himself out, which is exactly why he didn't, and had it been Bautista making dodgy moves behind Dr. V, a different reaction could be justified.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for fairness and consideration in competition, but that's what has to be taken into context here. I seriously doubt that champions in the caliber of Rossi and Marquez give a dam about being fair or considerate when they're fighting for wins, but I also think a relatively high level of respect comes with bike racing (or should), and Marquez hasn't overstepped that.
And for those wondering why Dr. V lost time on the last lap...maybe Team Repsol saved a more powerful mapping for the last lap if x-amount of fuel was left?? Sandbagging should be easier than ever in the era of properly dialed in electronics! FACKIN BAN TRACTION CONTROL!!!
