I miss SuperSic#58 (RIP) Would have been fun to see him on his Honda even if I'm a Duc fan. The duc btw seems to have the same issues as last year? I guess yet another hard year... :(

You know...last year this time I argued that MM would win the Moto2 Championship and the kid was special and everyone was arguing...oh he is all hype, one hit wonder etc etc.. Well 1 year later, i think I recognize some of these names on here talking about he will be the next Rossi, my my my how things have change...but that is alright bandwagonist are welcomed!!

To be clear though this test proves he is fast not that he will be the next champ or the next Rossi for that matter. PLEASE keep in mind that in 66 YEARS of World Championship racing only 2 men have accomplished more than 5 world titles..

Ago and Rossi

So while MM has potential the statistics do not favor him, but hell records were meant to be broken!

I like Marqeuz and really think he going to be the next regular podium finisher/race winner/MotoGP World Champion but I've got a funny feeling he is going to launch himself into orbit sooner or later. Lorenzo did it in his first season and Pedrosa still has the fear. And I'll say again what I've said before - Pedrosa will never win a MotoGP Championship, simply hasn't got what it takes.

Where are all the Brits complaining about the amount of spanish riders in motogp now. It's about ability not nationality, and in my opinion Espargaro should be on the tech 3 bike.

Its going to be a long time before anyone comes close to Rossi's records, that doesnt mean they are not as good, or even better. Rossi racked up over 2/3 of his wins and titles against the likes of Gibernau, Biaggi, and Capirossi. Lorenzo is not going to do it, Marquez is not going to do it, there is simply to much top flight talent in the series at this time. Stoner being gone helps Marquez in more ways than one. Obviously had he stayed, Marquez would not be on a factory bike, plus, he wont have to battle the benchmark of the series of the last 6 years for wins.
