Livio Suppo Maintains His Support for Marquez, Still Blames Rossi for Marc's Fall

The 2015 MotoGP season may be over, but there still are embers burning under the surface. Valentino Rossi decided to withdraw his appeal with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and adopted a "let's call it a day" attitude.

He declared that he would only focus on the preparation for the 2016 season and wants to ride at least as well as he did this year. Yamaha remained neutral in the dispute between Valentino Rossi and his teammate Jorge Lorenzo, but it's no secret that the relationship between the two riders is colder than it ever was.

Both of them say that they are putting everything behind, and so does Marc Marquez, but the hatchet is not buried. The fans of the Doctor are not that willing to leave things as they are, at least not until all the official information surfaces.Telemetry from Marquez's bike is still one of the key elements in solving the Sepang incident, but this data is still withheld
Repsol Honda first said they had irrefutable telemetry data from Marquez' bike proving that Rossi kicked him at Sepang. This claim was one of the "verses" in the big Honda choir that claimed that MM93 was innocent.

Before some readers start accusing me of being a Rossi fan, they had better ask themselves why Honda did not reveal the data if they thought it was such a devastating piece of evidence? It's easy to go with the flow and say that what Race Direction, the FIM Stewards and Honda declared is the truth. But it's not enough, this is the problem.

Honda's Livio Suppo has been talking recently with Speedweek and he maintained his opinion that Rossi caused MM93 to crash at Sepang. Again, no mention about the telemetry data that was initially used as a major "weapon."

Politically-correct declarations that mention the "respect X has for Y" are not worth a dime in this technology-infused world. And this very world needs technological proof that supports Honda's claims. It will not change anything from the past, but it might be the only way credibility in MotoGP might be restored. The series is currently struggling with this, whether you like it or not, and solving the Sepang puzzle ahead of the season start might help...
