Maybe you were watching a different pass than I did but it is very obvious that Marquez knew he was there and turned into Pedrosa. I am not naive enough to think he intentionally had plans to crash Dani or anything like that but he forced contact that in no way was necessary.
You're telling me that you calculate contact into your "safe passes"?
Granted, it's been a while but if I forced a pass like that in CMRA, CRA or WERA, the guy that I caused to crash would be searching the pits for me to see if it was physically possible to punt my nuts through the top of my head or to see if he could invert my nose with his fist.
Marc could have easily ran that turn a little wide and not made contact in some valiant effort to force the pass on Dani...and then recovered within half a lap.

All the evidence is right there in the replay...
