The way Bezzecchi got involved in Australia (as a friend to Bagnaia) I do not like to see. But that is not new to MotoGP, as Marquez did it to Lorenzo too, blocking and outrageously holding up VR46 to help Lorenzo become champion in 2015.
OMG, are you really repeating that load of BS again???? :wtf: #-o

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 :roll: #-o ](*,)
Marc did cost a title to Rossi. It was Rossi's fault when he outraged Marc the way he was making comments about him and moreso the Assen incident at the last corner. It lead to Marc becoming a thorn and in Malaysia, Marc was driving Rossi crazy and then the incident occurred. Ideally, Rossi should have been black flagged there, but the FIM were p***ies as it would have killed the championship. Marc became more determined to cause further damage to Rossi and the last race of the season was a classic show of Marc rear gunning Jorge. Poor Dani, he had no Idea what Marc was planning. I quite enjoyed that Villain Marc. :D
Sadly, it was the last ever opportunity for Rossi for a title fight. But he got a good taste of outraging Marc. But it had nothing to do with Jorge being a friend of Marc.

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.



Yes, agree Marc helped Lorenzo... while battling Rossi, but that´s what racing is about, fighting your rivals. If you can´t beat some and that cost you a title, that´s racing too. But Rossi, and Rossi fans, felt the need to look for off track reasons when the only reason was on track perfomance, he couldn´t beat Marc, got upset, and kicked him off

Marc only did what he´s paid for, racing hard and collecting as many points as possible, if that did hurt Rossi, sorry Doctor, this is racing, there´s no reason for Marc to let Rossi pass, he´s paid to fight him (and any other rival) and that´s what he did

The KTM race bike of Brad Binder appeared to have a significantly shorter wheelbase, they will be looking for leprechauns soon to fit on them.

The two most important things for this test were about power for the Yamaha and chassis for the Honda.
Unfortunately neither happened. Honda = "no significant improvement" and Yamaha = .546 off the fastest time which was set on a you know what.
Aprilias were quick and both KTM brands maintained there recent improvements.

Marquez had the speed to fly away into the distance and win the race, but he chose to hang back and mess around with VR46. Probably to then go away like a rocket and win the race anyway, like he did the race before at Philip Island, although less prominent. That’s not fighting your rivals. That’s fighting just one in particular. I honestly don’t know how you could have watched this race, considering the speed Marquez had over Rossi, and objectively coming to the conclusion you have. I don’t even dislike Marquez for having done so. I don’t dislike Rossi for riding him off either. Both these legends had it coming. But there is no denying in what took place there. It made for a great rivalry.

I am happy for having witnessed the golden era of MotoGP, made by Pedrosa, Rossi, Marquez and Lorenzo.

That´s a huge and bold accusation. What are your evidences to make such a claim? What reason would make Marquez give up a victory, beating Rossi and any other rival?

Sorry but that´s no sense, but if you have some real evidence please post it
