Marquez for the title in his Rookie year is looking less and less unlikely. Dani must be worried and a little pissed off as he sees another year and therefore his chances of ever winning a WC bar catastrophe disappear. Also I'll get flamed but as I have said even when Stoner got on and last year the Honda have developed a drive out of turns that is leaving the Yam in their dust. Jorge and Rossi know that they could ride their teets off and they will get nailed simply coming onto the straights.

Wow!0.6 in front of dani is clearly a brillant result ...No wonder why poor dani already feels this is a "pain in his neck"...I can't help to speculate where stoner would have been at this test in front or behind the rookie... Yamaha needs to do something quick to be competitive for this season ,cos it looks like bradl is not far behind and, we tend to forget that he is a world champ too racing vs marquez and very talented...

Ahhhhhh!!!

Tx Gd Marquez has arrived in GPs. Either he kicks ass or falls and spills it I won't have to go through pages and pages of yellow news. Now the press doesn't have to publish every little thing Rossi does or says to get visits and start discussions.

Thank the heavens!

I like that his new, young kid is fast. But, remember, no one wins practice. It's important to see how he holds under heat of battle. At least in American professional football and basketball, freshmen are often surprised by the intensity in the game. In this case, I don't think this young one will fold, but he may be muted in the first couple of races. Then...look out.

@ billie morini

I agree that practice is one thing and racing another. However, Marquez has proven to be a very aggressive racer in the Moto2 series. All he needed to prove here was that he could handle the 1000cc machine vs the 600cc of the Moto2. He's done that, proved he can handle the bigger bike. Now for the racing, but I'm certain that Marquez will bring that same aggression on race day. It's going to be exciting because the top 4 MotoGP riders can all fight on the track. 2013 MotoGP is going to rock!! :)

This kid can figth championship if they race on all new circuit to even the playing field. Because these pro have all the data on all circuit they have raced for so many years. But without data this kid will blast them all.

I must admit i thought he would struggle in Moto 2 and I was proved wrong.
I said to a friend before any of the testing started that MM might be good for the Championship and now he's out there doing the stuff so far.
It's going to be a humdinger of a championship though

Danny Danny Danny... he just doesn't have it mentally. He is scared of falling and breaking a collar bone i would suspect. Marc has no fear and good for him , however i do think they aliens will try to bully him in the races a bit to kill his confidence. I think Lorenzo will win the title.. marc second.. danny third.. Have a nice day :)
