The most interesting press conference in 2015. I’m confused with Vale. Has finished reading David Emmet article and I think that is the most logic explanation about what happened in press conf.
Out of the blue Vale accused Marq in Sepang press conference for helping Lorenzo in Philip Island. After race in Philip Island, Vale did mention that Marq strangely slowed down in some lap but then he said he only will focus for the last 2 remaining race. I though case closed. But according to what Vale said, he rewatched the race and check lap time chart and convinced that marq did help Lorenzo, no maybe I should write that Marq made Vale to not gain more point.
Do I believe on what Vale said? I don’t know, even after read Emmet article I still not 100% sure what the meaning of Vale action.
Lap time chart maybe showed that Marq slowed down in some lap but it can’t show the cause of it. He slowed down?! Yes. Did he intentionally do that? I don’t know. Did rear tire overheating the cause of that? I don’t know.
ciimw, but I think this is the first time vale said something so frontal like that in this season. It’s so unlike him, it make me confused. Why now?! Did the pressure crack him out like Emmet said? Nobody know so well than Vale about this kind of games. I am sure he know the aftermath of his action. But why he still launch the attack?!
I can only think of 2 possibility.
If it’s because of the pressure, I hope someone will talk to him after the press conf and can make him calm & relax. So it won’t effect him in the race. I’m his fan, I want him to win. I want him to stay focus for Sunday.
But what if Vale plan something behind his action, some die hard fans called it his tactic, psywar. If it’s true, what is the purpose?! Why attack Marq when the one who he need to beat is Lorenzo?! I can only think that he did it to cast out other rider, leave him and Lorenzo alone. I remember after Misano the topic of rider help other rider came out first. Lorenzo asking Honda rider to help him, and Vale fans talk about Italian rider who will help Vale. He didn’t want that scenario happened. ‘This is the battle between me and Lorenzo, we don’t need other help. Let us fight each other fair and squre”, maybe something like that.
I’m pretty sure we can’t 100% sure whether Vale accused is true or false. You can believe that this is Vale’s psywar or you can believe that this is Vale being nonsense. But, what it’s the truth?!
Personally, I don’t care if it’s psywar or not. The most important thing is the result of Sunday race. If he lost point again from Lorenzo most likely it will be game over, the pressure will be more huge on Vale. I can’t imagine how Vale & Lorenzo feel, I’m only watching it on TV but it make me so f***ing nervous. My the best man win. Hope the best man who win is Vale.
