The ones slating Marquez are the ones who are afraid of him because they know deep down that he is going to make life difficult for their hero to win races!
Afraid of a little competition are we?
This boy is going to be something.Not this season perhaps,but mark my words.You better get used to seeing this guy on the top of the podium.

I don't understand why there are so many so called fans slating Marquez. You are obviously not seeing what I'm seeing . The guy is brilliant and I honestly think he will be in the hunt for the championship and will probably win it - just wait and see!

I will be entirely unsurprised if Marquez wins the championship this year. Completely fearless, rides round problems, doesnt crash and has won every championship hes entered almost first time out. Roberts did it, Spencer did it so its not that unusual in the scheme of things.

I am curious as to how hard Marquez was pushing. He is eventually going to have to find the limit and cross it to see "what happens".

Jorges biggest down fall was his crashing in 2008, which caused him to lose confidence. Hopefully, for the safety of Marquez and for racing, this doesn't happen to him.

He's facing greater competition and a steeper learning curve than those before him.

Agreed Bill.But i think he is more than up to the task.How long it will take him to get his name on the trophy i am not sure.But i have no doubt at all that he will win it several times.

Bradl is a good comparison for Marquez. Not becasue he beat him in Moto2, Marquez had to sit out after an incident that was really not his fault.

Both are on Factory Hondas. Bradl has a year with his team, the bike and tires and should be more comfortable and Marquez is clearly faster. Bradl is an excellent rider but not quite at the level of the first group and it is pretty clear marquez will be there.

I expected marquez to chase Rossi for 3rd, it may just wind up being the other way around...

Very impressive, especially compared to Bradl/Smith, Bradl beat him in moto2 and Marquez is already faster on the gp bike, and smith is nowhere just learning apparently, Marquez is at the front straight off. Gonna be a good season! I think he'll win some but I also think he'll do a lot of aerobatics, much like Lorenzo in 09!!!
