OMG, are you really repeating that load of BS again????
Marquez and Lorenzo have NEVER been friends, more of the opposite, they dislike each other since they were kids (completely different personalities). OTOH Rossi has always been Marquez idol, so claiming Marquez blocked Rossi to help Lorenzo is so laughable it´s really amazing to read people repeating this BS so long after.
That was just Rossi excuse to justify his kick, as he had no excuse at all to justify that unsportive action and he had to justify himself some way... that absurdity was the only thing he could invent, but looks like people only need to look at the pasport to assume it was true, even if all evidences point to the opposite
I’m not stating Marquez and Lorenzo were friends. I said Marquez actively helped Lorenzo become champion by blocking and holding up VR46 and it is the truth. Whether you like it or not.
Marc didn't block anyone in any race except in Malaysian GP where he gave the loudmouth rossi dose of his own medicine. When you talk --- about a rider of Marc's caliber thinking mind games will work on him like previous weak opponents, it is guaranteed that it will come back to bite your a**.
"Marquez helped Lorenzo win the 2015 Championship"
Can't believe I'm still reading this BS! But what do you expect when even seasoned pundits and reporters (old fanboys of Rossi) have been saying the same outrageous thing for years!
Wanna know what really happened there?? Exactly what "xaero" said! Rossi thought that accusing Marc of riding against him in Phillip Island to slow him down and help Lorenzo (where Marquez took the win on the last lap at the last corner) would get into Marquez's and Lorenzo's minds!
But guess what! Rossi never had such fast, hardcore and mentally strong opponents as Lorenzo and Marquez! Even Stoner was so prone to mind games by Rossi and the others that he bailed out early and even lost some championships because of that I would say (2008-2009)! I always laugh whenever I hear people say "Stoner would beat Marquez"
So Marquez apparently thought "alright you wanna play mind games?? let's play mind games" Guess what happened next year (2016)! Rossi vs Marquez for the championship 1v1! Guess who won...
No one has ever managed to beat Marquez 1v1 throughout a season! Nor has anyone managed to break this man's mentality! Even his own crashes and surgeries haven't got him down to his knees!
The only thing keeping Marquez from bleaching the whole field of mediocre and mentally weak riders, is his mediocre and weak bike! Look at Quatararo's and Bagnaia's mistakes all year long whenever they're under pressure! Bagnaia is nowhere whenever pressure is high! Not to mention Mir...
Marquez would have been a 9-time MotoGP champion had it not been for Jerez 2020!
The guy is just an alien...
