MotoGP » Marquez stays top at Austin MotoGP test


“I am learning so much during these days - most of all with the electronics. With this being a new track, we have no base to go on and we have to work a little harder on finding one” – Marc Marquez.

As good as Marquez seems to be at this track I do wonder if he's the type of rider that will go for lap time 100% because he's definitely aggressive. Pedrosa and Lorenzo on the other hand not so much. Still, good to see a new name up there.

Marquez is 4/1 for the title. I'm beginning to think that maybe he can actually do it.
If the Honda proves too good for the Yamahas then realistically he just may need to beat Pedrosa.

It's very exciting.

Marquez is VERY aggressive and Stoner would've been complaining a lot if he was still racing this year. Rossi on the other hand, although he's older now and I'm not sure he's as quick as he use to be, never gives up on a fight for position. Lorenzo and Pedrosa seem to give up and settle for a safe position rather than scrape fairings for one place higher, with exception now and then. Pedrosa was a lot more aggressive last year but Marquez is like a wild beast on the track, although sometimes too hard.

It's going to be very interesting this year. Lorenzo and Pedrosa have really matured and they're very fast. Rossi has always been an aggressive racer and he has a point to prove while Marquez still has a lot to learn. Marquez crashed a lot at the beginning of 2011 but he did learn quickly. Stoner will be missed and it would have been interesting to see him against these guys this year :)

F-me, that kid is elbow down at a "brandy new" circuit...!?!? well at least when he tosses one (and he will), at least he won't go into ORBIT like countryman j-lo. no upside down freeze frames for marquez. all low sides, nice and easy. definitely the lesser of the 2 evils.

MotoGP and World Superbikes and the TT are all dangerous. If you have a problem with the danger you should not be racing a machine that can reach over 300km/h. You are paid to win, not to just go out and ride safe. Safety is always important but the nature of this sport is dangerous. ANY overtaking with bikes that do these speeds WILL be dangerous. If you cannot handle it then I suggest you go fishing from the banks of a quiet river.

re: "Ducati made a big mistake not going. They will be playing catch-up on race day, in fact they might as well miss the race to save money."
