Old Man Gresini: This is the thing Marco and I will explain it to you again, you must finish a race, and if you finish a race you must reach higher than 10th....do you understand this?

Marco passed Dovizioso and Lorenzo with ease before front tyre issues caused him to fall back in Indianapolis.
He will be an alien.
The Honda suits have once again made a wise choice by signing him up to the last remaining factory ride for next year.

Yeah he pass Dovi and Lorenzo with ease blah, blah, blah makes him a future alien blah, blah, blah.

Dovi has beat Simoncelli in ALL 12 RACES but you're talking about he passed him with ease? A race he didn't even beat Dovi where the other 3 Hondas were in the top 5. lol

Marco isn't fit to carry Jorge's helmet.

Without a doubt, this guy is the most overrated in the field this year. Bautista's ride at Indy was more impressive than anything Marco has done this year.

People talk about how Spies is overrated and a waste of a factory bike but it's clearly Marco. This guy is arguably on the best bike on the grid and has 1 podium, barely in the top 10, and barely beating his non-factory bike teammate.

RawDawg, who did Honda sign up for a factory ride next year?
Dovi is consistent and that is about the best you can say about him.
He will never win a championship.
Marco, while green is a true racer. He clearly has learned his lesson about being too reckless and will dominate Andrea over the remaining races.

"will dominate Andrea over the remaining races"

Since Dovi has beat him in all 12 races this year that's based on exactly what? Because it surely isn't based on past performances or results.

You might as well say Rossi is going to podium the remaining races or that Cal will get top 5's the remaining races because it's based on the same thing - hope, prayer, and optimism.

RawDawg, if you aren't capable of judging by riding style, attitude and raw speed that Marco is vastly superior to Andrea then that is your problem.
I'm no expert but I've been following MotoGp since the Doohan years and in my opinion Marco is the real deal.
Clearly the corporate hierarchy at Honda can see Marco's potential as well.

Robwal, one thing you have to learn about Rawdawg is that he bases his opinions purely using google, wikipedia, and motogp.com. Anything else goes over his head and it doesnt matter. He only sees what he wants to see and has an obbsession with figures. Luckily for many riders, the team bosses and the people that have more insight can look past that. Rawdawg is not capable of that which is why his opinions and comments are always one dimensional.

"if you aren't capable of judging by riding style, attitude and raw speed that Marco is vastly superior to Andrea then that is your problem."

@Robwal

If Marco is so vastly superior to Dovi than why hasn't he beat him in 112 races this year? Why does Marco only have 1 podium and Dovi has like 5 this year? Why is Dovi 3rd in the championship and Simo barely in the top 10 if he's so superior?

Are you paying attention to what happening on the track or have you been hypnotized by Marco's hair?

Vastly superior would be someone like Stoner who has beaten Dovi more than he's beaten him which clearly isn't Marco.
