MM did not do it on purpose.
His agrressive mistake led to it. JLo could have given up more track positions but heat of the moment stuff and shit happens.

Agreed. But Lorenzo's complaints are completely baseless in my view. He fucked up and is just trying to shift the blame in his own mind.

Lorenzo is never at fault for anything. I don't like MM's policy of banging fairings, intimidating, and rough riding, but that is not what happened. He put a hard but clean race pass on Lorenzo, and Lorenzo couldn't handle it.

I hear Honda is building the walls already.

Holy f'ing Sangria! The Ducati had at least 12 hp to the ground on Marquez, and all anyone can talk about is the start and Lorenzo's mistake and misfortune? Just wow. Marquez is amazing. Without him, there would be two Ducatis touring around together until the last corner. No one is racing the Ducatis except him. No one.

EDIT: Andy and Marcy put on a GREAT show. They did it last year, too. These are two excellent riders that trust each other completely. Even when they can't see each other they still race side by side. It is fantastic racing!

Without Marquez, Ducati probably wouldn't be as competitive. The dude has raised the bar in MotoGP, as Rossi did when he was dominant. Marquez's arrival has pushed every manufacturer on the grid to make a better bike, with Yamaha currently flailing.

Marquez winning in spite of Ducati having the better bike is a given at this point, as he is the superior rider.

So, yeah, we're going to talk about the drama instead of marquez's continued dominance.

Borenzo is so fucking pissed. His hydration pack broke and looks like flowing rage tears out of his helmet.

That's like some Harvey Dent shit right there. Borenzo got jacked by WinOrBin and it's like when the Joker made Harvey Dent into Two-Face.
Borenzo will become the MotoGP villain we need to destroy WinOrBin.

The tire switch on the grid was transparently a pre-planned switch, not a last minute throw of the dice. The whole crew knew that they would be switching compounds at the last millisecond to prevent their competitors from responding in kind. Contrary to the spirit of the rules? Re-write the rules. Until then it's all legit. I am a gut-deep Dovi muppet, but Marquez out-thought my man. Props to him. He can do all the fashion pose offs he wants(and if you check his watch ads and glossy continental covers, he does plenty), but if he wins this way, I'll give him the credit every time. Peeps lobbing sour grapes during a golden era of MotoGP racing will get zero sympathy from me.
P.S. - despite the Ducs HP advantage, the Honda had a higher top speed.
P.P.S. - Lorenzo will get no sympathy either. Aragon is slippery. He got out in the marbles. You fall down if you go out there. Grow up. Accept being blocked and back out of the throttle next time.
P.P.P.S. - What about those Zooks? Gotta love that.
P.P.P.P.S. - And Aleix gettin' deadly on the Ape? And Bradley riding like a man? Golly gee whizz.

The 1:22 video "Gran Premio Movistar de Aragon: MotoGP™ in super slow motion" proves that Dorna have access to decent music producers. Maybe not top drawer, but vastly better than the dry-rotting theme music. Give us a break, Dorna.
