At least he apologized.

We will see him from bottom to top anyways. He is like Super Sic and Vale in a mix.

Thanks!

Marquez is always going hard, even in FP. Definitely was not a needed pass .. but he'll probably have no issues popping up to the front of the grid the first lap.

It's racing and none of us were in Marquez's head, yes it was practice but it didn't look that horrible I've seen worse.

You get in hot and think you have more space than what you have or the guy went slower on the previous lap that shit can happen. Did he need to be thrown to the back of the grid? Eh a little excessive if you ask me.

Race - sure. But practice???? Nah pure Dick move. If everyone ride like that we would have half a grid due to injuries.

Contact was minimal but definitely could have been avoided. Corsi even stood up for a second. Does anyone know if he hit Corsi's lever? Don't they have lever guards on all the bikes now? I've seen way more contact than that and no one went down

Even if he had hit the lever it would have pushed it the other way. Out not in.

Corsi went wide & you could def tell there was a speed difference esp in the second view of it. sometimes things are avoidable & sometimes they arent, they were on two different lines & it appears corsi almost blew the corner.. i dunno i don't think it was all that bad, yes it sucks that corsi crashed... but look at this scenario, marquez checks up & hits the brakes hard.. he's hitting the back wheel of corsi because he was off apex & went wide, now marquez tbones the back wheel.. watch the video some more esp around the 25 second mark, marquez already has a bright orange wheel in sight & then corsi turns in.. was it close yes, intentional & wreckless no, not in my eyes

Classic Stoner, complained about everything, even the new surface. That's how he'll be remembered.
