It will be interesting to see him on the same bike as everybody else this year, an equal playing field will not help him, no matter how much money they are spending on him, private test sessions etc.

Or is he alone getting the next years updates, exclusively, again ?

Why on earth do you equate someone pointing out the massive advantage Marquez had last year with someone therefore being a Scott Redding fan ?

Fact. Marquez uniquely got updated parts from Suter that were deliberately denied to his rivals, this cured the bad chatter issues with the chassis, making him look very good, better than he actually is.

Does a level playing field scare you ?

Why do you need to hide your inadequacies and little man insecurities behind supporting "your" boy ?

Look at Pedrosa, hyped up, given the best bikes and a huge budget, how many MOTOGP trophies does he have ?

@kk

you obviously think Marquez is an average run of the mill rider or at least no-where near the talent he seems to be on that bike.
This seems to be the mantra of those who have a dislike for a particular rider or another as their favourite.
Can't recognise anothers skill as the contributing factor because it'll supposedly show their rider to be a lesser talent.

Your last point, regarding Pedrosa, leaves me puzzled though - regarding best updates etc.
Are you saying that Marquez is good but not that good? That without his supposedly superior bike he'd still be winning, but not by as much?
Or are you saying that Pedrosa wouldn't have been even close to the front of MotoGP in the past few years if it wasn't for the bike he was presented with?
