Good luck to marquez ,i just hope the pressure does not hinder him ,he needs to be natural i just fear the first incident pedrosa and lorenzo will start the chorus of "remember what happened to marco"

"Imagine JL, VR, DP, MM, CC, AD, NH, SB, AB etc. all on pretty even bikes like CRT's? Think about it - wouldn't that be damn good to watch? Stop getting hung up about the lap time - concentrate on the quality racing in a field like that! "

lolz, you mean like in Moto2? Do you really think everyone is on even bikes in that series??? Seriously?

Did you not see what a difference a bike can make for Anthony West, do you not see the obvious disparity in Moto2, when one rider can almost blast by two riders in the last turn at PI? Cmon now.

Im thru with MotoGP because it doesnt matter if they are all using the same motor or the same tire, its a lie, it will always be a lie because lies sell and honesty doesnt, just look at the difference between Casey and Rossi's bank accounts. Nuff said. You want to be lied to, keep watching your TV, you want something worth while, go get you a suite.

The reason rossi wealth is by far the greatest is because he is a sponsorship dream hence why fiat pulled out when he left yam and now he left ducati all there major sponsors have bailed ,if your so anti moto gp dont comment on the site or issues ,stoners 1 title every 5 yrs dont bring mega wealth

I know its a long shot, but my money is on marquez winning a race before rossi does!! and there aren't 4 bikes only capable of winning, there's only 4 RIDERS capable of winning. You put lorenzo or capirossi on a satellite yamaha and they would win. likewise with pedrosa on a satellite honda. there is a slight difference in performance, but a major difference in rider talent.

in bike* performance. you don't honestly believe riders like de puniet, crutchlow, bautista, bradl, espargaro would win if they were on factory spec bikes do you??? Im counting out all ducati riders . maybe if they were more consistent podium finishers like dovi, but from what I've seen ALL of those riders are from wins even if they were on factory bikes.

No doubt this kid is fast. But i don't think and i will not fall to the hype that he will finish on podium on the first round in Losail. Though i won't be suprise seeing him in the front row. Other than that i expect him to finished in the top 8.

Err, Marquez was fast because his bike was rigged (electronics and quick shifter). He was too fast on the straights unlike Lorenzo who's fast as hell on the turns.

Over rated. Yes. Fast? Yes. Specially on that good bike he's getting.

Marquez,after qualifying front row hits the front then after a few laps finds out he's in a mans world and starts running wide and doing his tyres.
