  1. So we've seen Marc Marquez crash out of three races in the first half of 2015, in all three cases from second position. I went through the points to see how the championship would have looked like, if he had scored second places in those three races: Marc Marquez: 114 + 20 + 20 + 20 = 174 pts Valentino Rossi: 179 - 0 - 3 - 4 = 172 pts Jorge Lorenzo: 166 - 1 - 0 - 0 = 165 pts Andrea Iannone: 118 - 2 - 4 - 2 = 110 pts Andrea Dovizioso: 87 - 4 - 0 - 0 = 83 pts For each of the riders I've simply taken their current points and then deducted the amount of point they would have lost by Marc finishing second. Since Jorge won two of the three races in question, he would only loose a single point, whereas Iannone looses out 8 points. So, if Marc had been given the same advice as was given to Kevin Schwantz*, he would have been leading the championship by two points. Do I think that Marc's done and over this year? No, not at all. All it takes is a little crash from Rossi and/or Lorenzo to mix things up quite a bit. And there's still 9 races to go. *) "There's no bonus for being first in the first corner, being first at the end of the first lap. Only bonus is for passing the finishing line. So let's just go out there and see how things goes"
