This wouldn't be much of an issue had it not forced Rossi to start from the back of the grid in the final race, pretty much gifting Lorenzo the title. Can't stand Lorenzo, and Marc has been riding dirty to seemingly back him up is disgusting.
Wow, when I put this I wasn't expecting it to get worse. Lorenzo got the title after all, but not without another helping hand from Marquez. Rossi got from dead last to 4th, but needed both Honda rivals to overtake Lorenzo to get the title. Dani Pedrosa tried at least, but Marquez sat directly behind Lorenzo the entire race despite clearly being the faster, and seemed to block Pedrosa from making a pass with 2 laps to go.
Well done to Lorenzo, he's been consistent this year and won the most races so deserves his title, but it would have been Rossi's without the huge amount of input from Marquez. Absolutely awful behaviour for a rider held in such high regard within the sport. Next year is going to be potentially explosive.
