I think that I will say nothing about how to ride a 1000 GP bike to a kid who is an experienced moto2 champion and has a garage full of experts who can tell him what to do. He seems intelligent enough (apart from some on-track blackouts). Despite experience on many many bikes, twostrokes, fourstrokes, dirt and street and of course 25 years sitting behind the television thinking that I am smarter than Mick Doohan, Max Biaggi, Valentino Rossi etc.

I think Marc Marquez will do well this season. He is putting down some fast laps. His comments are very modest and mature. I think people over emphasize his "lean angle" I'm seeing a guy who hangs off a lot more just like dani said. And dani knows because he can see the data and he's on track with him. I've seen guys drag elbows on street bikes by hangin way off. That's what I see with Marquez. The bike isn't leaned over any more than the others from what I see. The goal is actually to go fast without leaning too much. Just look at his body position mid corner.
