Form what I read, it says the penalty IS suspended till the hearing and the outcome. That does not mean any advantage, though, as its 48 hours before the race.
Thats what I read:

About time we have a separate thread discussing the 2016 season. With the control ECU and entry of a new manufacturer, we sure do have a lot to discuss. Somebody please do the honors!

Default The 2015 MotoGP Thread

HRC finally speaks and they still believe Rossi 'kicked' Marquez, that too his brake lever and they have 'evidence'. What is going on! This just keeps getting weirder.

Do you believe Valentino kicked Marc's bike?
"It is clear that Valentino intentionally pushed Marc towards the outside of the track, which is out of the rules, therefore Marc had no other option other than to run wide. The data from Marc's bike shows that even though he was picking up the bike trying to avoid contact with Valentino, his front brake lever suddenly received an impact that locked the front tyre, which is the reason for his crash. We believe that this pressure was a result of Rossi's kick. The data acquisition from Marc's bike is available if anybody from Dorna, the FIM or media want to check."

This data was always present in the telemetry and it was bound to crop up at some point or the other.

But how did Rossi get past the lever guards? Maybe his leg touched Marquez's right hand and pushed it back and this caused Marquez to pull on the lever? Or did Marquez pull the lever out of some instinctive reaction and this had nothing to do with Rossi's leg?

Whichever way it is, this Sunday will be a cracker of a race! Whichever way the championship goes, this will be one for the ages.

That's exactly what I can't understand. How can anybody get past the lever guard thing! Seems physically impossible.
And this comes up just ahead of the CAS meeting, talk about timing, eh.

Sheer arrogance and FUD from Honda, that too after losing all three titles this year - Rider, Manufacturer and Team for 2015!!

First the Repsol threat to "withdraw" from MotoGP and now this. There's no love lost between Rossi and HRC since 2004 and this is nothing but trying to stick to your guns since "Marc-Crash" keeps on insisting that he was kicked.

Race Direction clearly said there was no kick, and multiple angles prove it.

Don't know what HRC is trying to get at, sheer arrogance and nothing else.

If they spend so much time and energy in driving some sense into MM as well as tweaking their 2015 bike, results would be much better, and for all involved, not just HRC.

EDIT : Why are they bringing up all their data only now, 8 days after the event? Surely this data would've been available the instant the race ended?

To mess with the upcoming CAS hearing, clearly!
I've never waited so anxiously for any day. Hoping agains hope that the penalty will be called off or the hearing postponed to after Valencia.
Forza Vale.

Under normal circumstances no. However, if the bike ls leaned over (like Marquez's during the accident) then the brake lever will be open to impact from top angle. Look at Dani's brake lever in the following video (at 2:25) and you can see what I mean



I don't think there was a kick from Rossi but there could have been some other impact like footpeg etc on brake lever. The way Marquez crashed is very indicative of an abrupt wheel lock.

Rossi also seems to have some support from Sebastian Vettel who says that Rossi did the "absolute right thing"

Oh boy! This Sunday is gonna be a cracker!

MotoGP riders, Marc Marquez and Valentino Rossi have been summoned to a meeting before the final race of the season amid a "damaging" feud between its two biggest stars.

A statement from the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) said a meeting, to also include team managers, has been called "given the exceptional circumstances".

Shuhei Nakamoto, vice president of Marquez's Honda team said on Monday that he hoped Rossi would "think it over and understand his mistake".

Here is a report on a ride that some of us went on in Bangalore to support Rossi. Decent turnout and good support for the doctor.

Movistar Yamaha issue reply to Honda : http://www.motogp.com/en/news/2015/1...o-honda/188752

Snippet :

Yamaha would like to express its disagreement with the words that have been used to report on the incident between riders Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez.

Both press releases included words that accuse Valentino Rossi of kicking Marc Marquez‘s bike that is something not proven by the investigation of the Race Direction.

EDIT : Some sane words - "Yamaha has no wish to enter into further discussion regarding this unfortunate affair and our desire is to conclude the 2015 MotoGP season in the best possible way."
