I'll start by saying that I trully don't care if you agree or disagree with the following comment. But to me people are making too much of Marc Marquez, he's good yes, but he'll also be a rookie. Remember JLo rookie season, how amny crashes he had, and he was on the best bike at the time. I hope he proves me wrong, but I'm not expecting too much from him this season, maybe next season with more experience. It's not the same calling out the Devil, than hearing him knock at your door. Just saying.

Well I guess Casey proved he
was good enough to win races
on a bike that wasn't a factory
Honda or Yamaha.
Cal has to prove he is good
enough to do the same.

I highlight the point what a Rusjel was trying to suggest is lies in ...WASN'T A FACTORY HONDA OR YAMAHA...= more or less the same as any satelite bike,incl Ducati.

@99crystalball, what kind of a rider sets what they achieved the season before as a benchmark for this season?? that is not aiming for progress!! and don't give me this bs about the factory bikes being SOO much better than the satellites. read a little deeper into your crystal ball and you will find that its the rider that makes the difference more than the bike. Satellites are for rookies and less talented riders. why do you think dovi was able to achieve 6 podiums to crutchlows 2? was his bike better?? thats why he was picked to be a factory rider this year over the crutch. Not saying crutchlow doesn't deserve to be in motogp but there are a lot of riders ahead of him in terms of talent.

Cal should be thankful he stayed on the Yamaha otherwise there would be no chance of him even finishing top 8 if he took the Ducati ride. Cal just needs to be consistant this year... if he can do that he will finish the year in top 5 for sure

I expect to see Valentino up in the top 3 most races and those that don't think he is able are just fooling themselves. Marc Marquez is in for some serious competition and his use of aggression and bully boy tactics is not going to do him any favours here as he will soon find out. I also think that Jorge will push himself far too much in an attempt to constantly beat Valentino and it could all end up in disaster because of it. Danny Pedrosa will be a real candidate to win the championship as he had a bit of luck last year so will have to do better, even if it is just to show Marquez how it is done. All in all, I am looking forward to some good "racing" this year and not the usual boring stuff we have had for the last few years, so roll on April!!!
