@AB

Simo another league compared to Marquez?
Simo got the entire world against him due to some aggressive overtaking and got big warnings due to his riding skills. Marquez on the other hand has a passport that will set him free for whatever he does even riding guys of their bikes during practices.
He rode a bike that had a big advantage compared to Pol's bike and the rookie rule has disappeared all of a sudden.
Marquez gets everything on a golden plate I wished they did this with really talented riders such as Aleix or Pol Espargaro. Aleix is ruining his career on a bad bike whilst he could do good if he could undergo the same treatment is 93. Marque is a hazard for himself and for others but he always gets away with it, I hope his first year will put him back with both feet on earth.

I think people on here outside the paddock (Casey stoner chavs) making horrible comments with obviously no other motivation other than hate need to just calm down a bit. Rossi is like a child still he loves anything fast anything, F1, ralley, WSBK anytyhing including the drivers and riders. These comments are him being his self he see's him ride and thinks he's awsome, hence the hoping he makes a few mistake joke. Now I wonder if you lot or your hero had that many world titles would be so quick to respect others arriving in the class who has the talent to win. This is called humilty, try it.

Lorenzo started off his MotoGP career running at the front. Then learnt the hard way that he had to back it off. Not Taking anything away from MM though. How would Bradl fair on full factory or Iannone and the Tech3 boys? Satellite teams need more factory support, forget CRTs, it was always a split championship.

Lorenzo practices sophrology, Pedrosa has lighted himself a flame on his ass and Marquez is plain crazy.

Mind games or not Rossi has his pay decreased ride cut out for him.

Let's hope uncle Ezpeleta stays the he11 away now that he forced yamaha to take Rossi back.

@Stylo, Bradl does have full factory backing.

But yes is agree, many other roiders would do well with the same backing. Cal would undoubtly go quicker with full factory backing. That goes without saying.

Lets use Rossi as an example. Hayden was as quick if not quicker than Rossi, so its a good bet to say that Hayden may very well be up at the top of the timing charts if he was on a Yamaha. As would many other riders im sure.

Thats not to take anything away from Rossi or Marquez. Its just a shame that we dont have more than 4 truely competitive bikes out there to showcase everyones true potential.

With the exception of Stoner, Rossi has shown the world that you need a good bike to be right up there with the best of them.

To illustrate just how good MM is, look at the difference between Bradl and the Repsol Honda Rookie. The LCR is a factory (Gresini/Simoncelli) type deal and although we could never for certain say that they're exact replica's (factory), for only his 3rd real outing on the bike, to be faster than a rider who by all accounts, has a year's racing experience behind them, is scary.

For one, this Kid looks like he's serious about his craft, nothing else phases him. Brilliant.

Not scary, at all!
Even those two bikes might be technically the same, there still would be a difference: right within the names !
Where such difference might really count?
Well, within the rider's mind exactly !
