Twitter has been awash with comments since the clash this morning between reigning MotoGP champion Marc Marquez and championship leader Valentino Rossi that saw the Spaniard end the race in the gravel and the Italian now set to start the last race from the back of the grid at the next and final race of the season in Valenica.

A number of racers, both current and past, took to Twitter to air their views on the crash, with most siding with Rossi, claiming that Marquez's actions in apparently dropping back to slow Rossi up made the attempt to run him wide justifiable.

However, there was also a few who fell on the side of Marquez, perhaps unsurprisingly led by a man who more than once became the victim of heavy Rossi moves: Casey Stoner.

We'll leave the final word on it to BT Sport commentator and former racer Keith Heuwan
