Does everyone here believe Marc & Stephan are receiving equal support from HRC? If they are, Marc is even more impressive than I initially thought him to be! I wonder who is more nervous about him, Jorge or Dani?

I agree with you, being a new track is a great equalizer, MM is a guy with probably the greatest potential in years. I am very sure that MM wil be a major headache to the top 3 for 2 reasons. One, he's as fast as anybody out there if not faster, and two his shark instincts are going to get the best of him sometimes and collateral damage(i,e taking other riders out) is bound to happen. People are forgetting that this guy is a bully, that will not measure himself even during free practice, ask the Moto2 guys, he was pushing, running into people and just being a jacka$$ to the slower riders. Hopefully he gets to eat some humble pie and the brute diamond he is now turns into one of MotoGP's greatest.

Yea dj that's exactly what motogp needs along with Rossi back on a competitive bike, a jacka$$ bully rider who will win races at the expense of others. A happy Gilmore of motogp if you will. Not only is Marquez extremely talented, he doesn't give a fcuk what happens to anyone in his way. The closest we have seen to something like this was simoncelli(rip) riding "aggressively". I really hope Marquez brings his antics from moto2 up to the big stage. To be honest I'm pulling for him to pi$$ of Rossi jlo and Pedro. Dirty or not, it would make for great coverage and you know a site like crash would eat it up.

Marquez is truly impressive. Rossi clearly less. Comes race days these two are sure going to mess the championship fight between lorenzo and pedrosa by putting a lot of pressure on them. Honda is also clearly the bike this year. I feel that is the last shot from pedrosa at the title, if marquez stays in one piece he will run the show like rossi did...

Honda seems to have the machinery, but they also have the perpetual bridesmaid & a wild rookie. If & when Yamaha gets a good seamless transmission in place, I don't doubt Jorge & Vale will become the much more competitive. After all, they hold 13 titles between them!! Wow! Has there ever been a team with this many?
