"The reason they didn't win through out 2004-2010 was Valentino Rossi "

Well i think the OP was referring to 2007-2010. Well Honda didn't win in 07 because Stoner won ,Rossi was 3rd i seem to recall. 08-09 Rossi won and 2010 Jorge' won, so to suggest they didn't win was because of Rossi was stretching it a bit far. DP constantly complained throughout the 800 era that the bike wasn't good enough. When Stoner arrived and showed how good the bike really was, DP and Puig had to knuckle down and get on with it. To be fair to Dani he has done just that , but if Stoner hadn't gone to Honda would they still be making excuses?

The reason no one mentions Lorenzo and Pedrosa in this conversation is because this topic is about the fight for 3rd.

Crutchlow, Bautista and Bradl should be mentioned.

JL & DP are 15 seconds ahead.

Is good to wach Rossi having fun and talcking good about one rider that has to be good.. Marquez did better then any other rider on small classes, he has everybody trying to help him understand how Motogp bikes worck and he is on the most successful Team im Motogp.. I think is natural stuff!! Marquez is a good kid unlick other rider that have big mouth.. Spanish people and the riders are good people that worck hard for Win and we know that spanish love Motogp.. i still dont bealive that Marquez will be the first to enter on Motogp and will have full control and feeling from that start but we never know, Rossi was know for take one year to learn and the 2 to Win, Stoner did the same making a good year him 2006 and winning 2007 but then he start having problems with Ducati and Lorenzo learn him 2008 on the hard way and did excelente year him 2009 and 2010 won the Champion.. if Marquez can win the Champion on the 1 year will be History but i dont bealive on that he still need to learn the

Hilarious how so many seem to think Rossi has to win every race/championship of his career to maintain the GOAT status. It's inevitable he will decline in the results, but his record will take a hell of a long time to be surpassed. He's 14 years older than Marquez and 8 years older than Dani & Jorge. Just glad I started watching in 2001 and witnessed what he's accomplished. As far as Marquez being the most deserved of the current runners to be the next GOAT, I'm not so sure. He's only won on machinery substandard to WSS. These bikes are much more capable of endinjg a career. I do however feel Jorge will be the torch bearer for the foreseeable future, having won 2-250cc titles and 2-MotoGP titles, and still being quite young/fresh.

@All
It appears that a lot of comments on this forum immitate the sort that a football fan would come out with..... Be real for once these guys are RACERS and are at the top of their game. Most of these comments are regarding the past not the future. Get over the past and look to the future. Support the people who dont turn their back on MOTOGP
