If in doubt,pull down the stats PDF' top speeds recorded.
Hell! Some of you are starting to sound like the same bunch that slated Stoner back in 2007.
Looks like Marc is going to have to go down the same road as #27's replacement. Bwah wah wah !!! His bike is too fast,his temperament sucks. He tells it as it is. He does not engage the stage.
Like Stoner,Marquez don't give a ****. He is the real deal. So is Crazy Joe. The pair of them are going to raise the game at HRC and Ducati for sure. That can only be a good thing.

What makes MM so great, if this was the first time I had seen him race I would think he is like the wealthy club racer who can afford the fastest bike and use it on the straights then bottles out in the braking areas and corners, how many times did he get taken into the corners in this one race and by how many other riders. I still think all engines are equal but some appear to be more equal than others for Hondas chosen one.

@TC

You do know how a race track works, don't you? If MM is faster on the straights, then his braking zone will naturally come up sooner. Hence why other riders can make up ground on the brakes. Let's exagerate here: if MM is going 280, and passes a guy doing 250, who do you think has to "bottle out" sooner?

As well, Luthi, Rabat and Kallio were all faster than MM down the straights (as per the official MotoGP site), with the other top riders within 2 or 3 kph of him. I don't remember seeing any of those three on the podium. Oh, but I forgot, to the fair weather fans who likely have never lined up on the grid for any sort of motorcycle race, top speed advantage is the only way to be competitive. *eyeroll

I'm not a big MM supporter, and was disgusted by him refusing to shake Iannone's hand after the race, but I know a superior racer when I see one. He hooks it up on corner exit better than the majority of the field and is getting along with his machine - it's that simple.

098yo,

What a load of tosh you talk, if you are faster on the straight you get way in front of the other rider then get your braking right then you get to the corner first.

Interesting comment from Iannone on gpone, (translated from Italian), which indicates he too thinks Marquez has a better engine although, ironically, that's also what Elias thought of Iannone's bike in the first year of Moto2.

"I give my all, right to the end, but like yesterday, I can't do more. Compared to Marquez we are suffering in the engine department, negating every pass as he pulls away. It's been like this all year, even though it's said that he is even lighter (than me). The team always does its best but it's not easy. I can't wait to get to (the post season tests at) Valencia and begin working for the future."

It could mean he thinks Marquez has a better engine package overall, including the ram air intake and exhaust but the implication seems to be something more.
