It's people making comments about certain riders being exceptional when they are doing things most of them can do anyway!!! It's trying to make out they have something the others don't when really, they are just showing off!!!

MM will most probably be the next love child of carmello in the near future.
he has a similar style to casey and an ego like vale , a combo to send carmello into rapture.
MM has always believed he is better than everyone , its a great psychological boost to have as it never allows the mind to dwell on defeat , it can also lead to dangerous riding in the last desperate laps though.
be interesting to see the races as i think tyre life will be his first surprise.

Lorenzo also thought he could get it in his first season, except he crashed a couple of times and got scared of the bike. This lean angle is great but when you are at the maximum of everything it's just a small gap from going over the limit.
Having this kind of lean angle in corners is great, but getting out of corners and getting it on the fatter part of the tyre is crucial of being the fastest.
Marquez will learn it the hard way like every other rider had to learn it. He won't be an exception of it they aren't riding for positions on this moment it isn't a race there's the big difference between testing and racing there's no pressure on him at the moment, but he's creating his own expectations not even to himself but also to the bosses of HRC. And when he doesn't live up to the expectations well we all know how japanese people can be....

One fast lap doesn't win the race mind, the bit that caught my eye in the article was: “It's good to be up there, but for example Jorge, Dani and Valentino are at another level because they are so constant. This is maybe the most difficult thing about MotoGP,” -

Acknowledging what he needs to do to get to the level of the competition is far more amazing than one or two fast laps on for all we know new tyres.
