@Shrieker
Everybody said that about Dani Pedrosa,how'd that work out?

Marquez is slightly over-rated.Bradl is a much more complete rider at the moment.He looks more confident on the brakes,thinks about what he is going to do and makes clean percise passes.Bradl IMO is going to do great things in Motogp.The bike will suit his style and he will be typically German in knowing what he wants from the bike and making it work.

HUH?

How can you possibly say such a thing... It seems the only reason Bradl has as many wins as he does, is because Marquez had DNF's in three of Bradl's victories...

Every race Marquez has finished he has won, save two, and in those he finished in the second position... Bradl has only beat Marquez once this season. Otherwise in the six races Marquez has completed, he has beaten Bradl five times...

Iannone is probably the best pilot out there in Moto2, only hampered by the machinery somehow in past races. But hopefully for them, things are sorted out now...

Marquez overrated? He has cooled down a lot since the start of the season, (his reckless out-of-control attempt at a pass taking out Redding at Estoril was particularly blameworthy), but he's still something of a ram raider, and a repeat offender at Brno. He's had the benefit of more testing and more support from Suter than others, being very well funded too. Plenty of aerodynamic testing, (including the ram air 'supercharger' effect), means his bike is quick, and being fairly light helps acceleration. He's undoubtedly talented, but it's difficult to make comparisons when you don't know how much is down to other factors. If a rider is on the podium one weekend and then midfield or worse the next, it's more likely to be set up issues than a sudden loss of talent, as Iannone demonstrated on Sunday. It's much harder for a good rider to compensate for a poor set up these days - success is down to the whole team, and even team mates may not have the same machinery. "To those that have shall
