My ideal scenario is Marquez getting beaten by Lorenzo for the championship and then stoner coming back next year and beating Marquez again.

That would be fun to watch.

No way, there will be team orders.

And I agree, would love for Stoner to come out of retirement and everything up lol.

So a little rubbing action that would've been overlooked accidentally cuts his wheel speed sensor wiring, now lets hang him. Nice 'tude.

A little? That was the third time the officials took a point from Marquez this year.

I guess the second point was really Cal Crutchlow's fault for crashing in that corner.

Yes, and they were clear headed enough to surmise that getting his traction sensor wire snagged, which caused him to crash, was an improbable accident. Which is why they only took a point. But you would cheer Pedrosa "getting back" at him.

You've been around the track long enough to have seen plenty of people taken out by someone else in much more irresponsible manners than that. Do you want them to "get back". Probably not.

Lorenzo. No question Marquez is a phenomenal rider, but IMHO had he been teamed up with Casey Stoner he probably wouldn't be having this incredible rookie year.

Well of course not. lol.
I'm all about respect on the track and track safety. And Marquez needs to back it off a notch. 15 crashes this year and taking other racers out is getting out of hand. The more crashes increases odds of somebody getting severely hurt.

"Come on Pedrosa and repay the favor for Marquez taking you out! lol " This was a joke. The whole thing with Repsol racers taking each other out.

Marquez might not be perfect but if the goat is asking him to be banned for a few seasons do he can compete... Good enough for me. MM will take it and likely be even faster next year.

I agree whoop. I want lorenzo to win it. He is a much more consistent rider. If lorenzo would ride on the edge all the time like marquez he would undoubtebly be leading in points right now. Lorenzo is a much more patient/ mature rider then marquez, Marquez no doubt has an amazing skill set but still has much more to learn before peaking. Mafquez has wadded up so many bikes and cost honda a load more money then pedrosa. With all this drama you think he would have already sealed the deal and been crowned champion, but he hasnt and its coming down to the wire. Lorenzo FTW. This is a bandwagon fan free zone....lmao

Mm would really have to marc it up to loose the championship, I would love to see that, put him in his place, but very unlikely he will most likely run a safe race and take the championship for him and honda, he doesent have to win, but his cocky attitude might drive him to crash trying to go out with the win and championship, lol, im sure he understands a easy 2nd or 3rd and he is golden, we will see soon
