I actually do want to see another view of the Olivera incident. He does look to be rather low with lots of lean and farther out on a part of track that bikes ahead of him were more upright at the place of impact.
The Zarco crash here if we really wanted to analyze one could say both could have avoided it, but neither directly caused it either, in other words a racing incident but I would say Zarco holds the bean for initiating it at that spot which was a bad choice. Point taken that there are certain places that are just to risky to be having racing incidents. This is one of them.
I too saw how close Vinales came and the front tire which looks like inches away from helmet hands off the bars trying to avoid. Also the speed that Morbidellis bike carried across Rossi was mind numbing. That bike carried on all the way to the crash fence, and that after tearing itself to pieces, a clear sign of just how much energy was in it at that point had impact occurred even if a glancing blow would have been unthinkable.
One thing i noticed even after this incident, and the one in Moto2, was the commentators increasing referring to things like 'rubbins racing" and "contact sport"..... I thought wed been thru that before and why they are pumping that aspect up again I cannot fathom. They showed enough of a realization that they nearly found themselves commentating on a multiple fatality situation so to still carry on in that way after surprised me.
I know I am being overly sensitive on this point, its just if we are to look into the aggressive behaviors, the win at all cost, its all about me, each and every corner, ridding habits that some are saying is a bit too prevalent. Than we kinda need to ask ourselves at some point if that is not what we are hyping up with statements like that.
Before I forget, here are a couple frames i snipped from zarcos move up the inside from a trailing onboard camera.
