According to Lorenzo, the dispute between the two had started since the race at the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit, Argentina, in the same season. At that time, Marquez fell because his front tire was hit by Rossi’s rear tire.

“Between hate and love, there is a very thin line. It makes it impossible to make friends with opponents. One of the keys to the championship is Argentina in 2015,” said Lorenzo, quoted from Tuttomotoriweb.it, Saturday (11/27/2021).

“There, Marc thought it was Vale’s fault. They had a good relationship at the time and I think Marc was annoyed when after that Vale didn’t come to him to ask how he was after the fall,” he said.

Rossi briefly shook Marquez’s hand when both of them were on the podium a few seasons after the Sepang Clash. However, their relationship is still cold until now Rossi has decided to retire.
