Like I said on Sportbikes, that was a plain out racing incident, Jlo was way wide and Marquez was way hot.
I'd almost wager Jlo outsmarted himself counting on MM to go for it, he went wide betting Marques would cook it... which he did.
The issue being Senior "Butta" found Marquez directly in his path, MM MADE that pass, he was still trying to get the bike slowed down to, y'know turn, as Jlo was trying to complete his coup de grace.
