Lorenzo gives his view on rivals’ scrap

Rossi won Saturday's race in the Netherlands in controversial circumstances as he and the chasing Marquez made contact at the final chicane, resulting in the Italian cutting across the gravel. The Yamaha rider rejoined the track ahead of Marquez and took the chequered flag a few seconds later.

Rossi believes he didn't do anything wrong as he was pushed wide by Marquez while the Repsol Honda rider feels he would have won the race if his rival didn't rejoin the track after going into the gravel.

Lorenzo, though, believes his team-mate didn't do anything wrong.

"It is true, after the race I couldn’t make an answer because I didn’t see it during the race," the Spaniard told MotoGP.com.

"Now I have seen it a few more times, to be honest, it is true that you cannot go straight and on to the gravel normally, but the contact from Marc was huge.

"Vale entered the chicane in the first position, so in my opinion he deserved the win this time."
