The kid is fast no doubt about that, but let's not get too overexcited. Marquez tested in Sepang for 2 day on his own with the bike he is riding now, so clearly he has an advantage in terms of Set-up, gearing, lines to take on an RC213V. Having an extra day of testing really make a difference. Remember Misano last year when Ducati tested there and on race week's free practice was trashed by rain, Rossi and Hayden got close because of the advantage of extra practice. Just by looking at Marquez style, he seems to use the tires a lot, unlike Dani, Jlo and Rossi who are very tire conservative, and this year tires will make a difference.

Marquez my man.
Dont do that extreme lean angle so often.
It take more energy and more risk.
U need all the energy for along run.
Do that when u have to over take someone on that corner.

I like pedrosa but on every test session he always says something that i dont like it "CHATTERING".
Your rival will happy to hear that.

If you can fix it then fight it.

I hope MM not complaining so much about this chatter.

Blistering fast and hugely impressive for a rookie but he's got a bit of a hot head on him in competitive situations.

He's got to get through the same learning curve as Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa went through. Given how often Jorge was launched into a low orbit in his first couple of years I can see Marquez having to suffer the same.

Hope I'm wrong because we desperately need some racing rather than time trialing in MotoGP

Marquez is fast, but let's not get too excited here as he also has a reputation for being a bit of a dirty racer!! His race antics have been questioned several times and it will be how he handles himself during an actual race that will be the test! Danny Pedrosa has even commented himself about the way Marquez has often managed to win races, and I don't think his aggressive style will go down too well here! The young lad might be very fast, but might find he has a lot of learning to do when it comes to racing with the big boys!

Marc after a few more crashes will slow down and then when he takes down a few riders in a first turn incident he'll be told to slow down and if it's Dani or JL,well now we're talking about getting excited.

I agree with the before mentioned Casey WHO and not joking..

Who needs him!
