So, exactly what do you think happened?
Make a statement. You apparently have an opinion. Lay it out for us, clearly.

VR's losing his mind and thinks there's a Spanish rider conspiracy against him. If MM wanted to really help J-Lo he wouldn't have passed him at the end of the last lap in Australia.

VR was because he couldn't leave MM in Malaysia so he deliberately slowed down in a turn and took MM wide. When MM tried to go around VR, MM's helmet made contact with VR's knee. This off VR even more so he kicked MM and or the Honda. The result of the kick was a crash.

If you saw the post race interview VR had with Dylan Gray it was pretty obvious that VR was making up and leaving out details that he later conjured up as he kept looking away from Gray.

Not once did he mention any of this: "After we touch and he touched with his handlebar on the right on my leg, and I lose the foot from the foot peg...

If you want to believe his fairy tail, then be my guest

I could copy and paste all the headlines that state VR kicked if you like, but I saw and can see what happened with my own lying eyes.

Pretty sure MM had a faster lap in qualifying and after he burned off more fuel would have left VR. Look how far back VR finished when he didn't have MM to tow him around

Not everyone panics when a car stops or slows down and then applies too much brake.

I've never known MM not to admit when he's made a mistake during a race.

Repsol Be

Repsol, title sponsor of the factory Honda MotoGP team, says it could reconsider its involvement in the sport following the Malaysian Grand Prix clash between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez.

In a strongly worded statement, the Spanish oil giant slammed Rossi for what it described as a "premeditated" and "unsportsmanlike" kick against Marquez when the duo made contact on the seventh lap of Sunday's Sepang race while fighting for third place.

"Dani Pedrosa achieved a great victory today in the Malaysian Grand Prix - a win that was unfortunately overshadowed by the unacceptable and unsportsmanlike conduct of Valentino Rossi against Repsol Honda Team rider, Marc Marquez," read the statement.

"On the seventh lap of the race, with Marquez and Rossi immersed in a battle for third place that involved several overtaking moves between the two, the Italian - in an absolutely intentional action - dealt an unsportsmanlike kick to the Repsol Honda rider that knocked him to the ground.

"Although Marquez was fortunately able to escape unharmed from the attack, for Repsol the conduct of Rossi is absolutely unacceptable because it endangered - in a premeditated and unsportsmanlike manner - the safety of the Repsol Honda team rider.

"Repsol consider this an unsportsmanlike act incompatible with the values of sport and competition."

Grand Prix motorcycling legend Giacomo Agostini has weighed in on last weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix controversy, saying that Valentino Rossi “lost his head” during his battle with Marc Marquez.

Rossi’s hopes of a 10th premier class title now hang in the balance after he was demoted to the back of the grid for the Valencia season finale as punishment for running Marquez wide and causing him to crash during their fight for third place.

Giving his take on a clash that has dominated MotoGP headlines since, 15-time champion Agostini told Spanish publication AS: “I think that Valentino lost his head.

“He was very nervous, fighting for the title. I can understand that, but you cannot make a move like this.

“Everyone saw his actions: he nearly stops, looks at [Marc] and tells him to off.

“He’s a great champion who knows how to keep everything under control, but this time perhaps he was out of control.

Having consulted at Repsol I can tell you those Spanish folks have absolutely no intention of pulling out.
