Right now he's the only Suter on top, even Luthi is starting to be in trouble. Nobody wants them for 2013. De Angelis says throwing away that Suter was the best thing he could've ever done.

But this boy doesn't care, he keeps winning. Class act.

he may be quick,and have a team that has 3 times the budget of all the rest in moto,and does 10 times more testing,but he is in for a shock next year,especially as his current weight advantage which equates to a 12 to 16bhp advantage over the likes of redding may be a hindrance .
i cant beleive honda are putting him on the factory rcv.he is a liability and will be a serious danger to himself and everyone else next year.
what he is getting away with on a relatively slow and soft moto 2 bike will hurt him big time in moto gp.
if he can get through next season without breaking himself into a million pieces i will see it as a major acheivement on his part.

1.The weight problem is Redding's in any case. If he weights 75 he will have problems in the lower classes. It's nothing new.

2.Marquez is 1.68 tall and weights 59 kilos. Check motogp.com and you'll see he's not far from Espargaro or Stoner in those terms.

3. The "10 more times testing" is directly a lie and shows you just hate the boy.

4. His team's budget... That's true, but it isn't rare that the best teams sign on the best riders. Or do you think they're dumb?

Well, in the last 7 months or so he made only one test dued (no pre season) to his injury and about the suter parts stuff i havent read anything about it from anybody, journalists or suter riders like Luthi.

He may have an easier way that others, but the boy does what he has to do, win.

Suter center around one rider? No, suter build parts for all his riders, some of the find them useful and others not. In any case Marquez's team help the boy better than other teams, cause it's important to have a great team.


By the way, doesn't anybody ever stop to think why so many talented riders come from Spain? it's just pure logic. Lots of facilities and a big racing liking. When a Spanish rider wins a gp, he appears on the cover of sport diaries, along with football info. I remember Toby Moody talking about that in pure awe. And that has ALWAYS HAPPENED, the 80's, 90's...

Cedric, I think Marquez did half of the pre season tests, i'm not sure. But the extra testing was only in the first half of last year and was Legal. Aspar and more also did it.

Marquez did none of the official testing sessions apart from Jerez just before the start of the season. He did some testing on his own at Albacete to check his fitness and some motocross (like most riders do) but that's about it, I believe.

MotoGp is the second sport most viewed in Spain after soccer, what other country can say that? Thanks Cedris for saying something coherent. Why isnt there a brit team with Redding and Bradley as riders, with big money coming from BP and Barclays bank for example? Dont blame us, just look what you are doing wrong.

I don't have anything against Marc, I'm just wondering is his bike better than others, because it seems to me, in the races, that he has a little more than the rest of the guys. I'm not saying that he has an advantage, I'm just asking, I don't follow moto2 that close. Maybe he just sets the bike better or something, so if anyone knows about his "package" can you share with rest of us.
