This guy is going to take Moto gp riding to another level, we've seen young talented riders such as Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa come through and give Rossi something to worry about, Marquez is the first rider to move up through the ranks who will be able to challenge the current 'aliens' and I can't wait to see how they deal with it.

He sounds like a very level headed and honest young man.Many have accused him of being cocky and arrogant.I see no evidence of that whatsoever.Very mature for his age i would say.He is going to become a major force to contend with over the coming years.Once he has settled into the premier class and got more track experience on the big machines,he is going to be a real handfull.And lets hope so too!

@nikisan - I'm not trying to argue about who's beaten who over the years im looking at the positive side of a new fast rider coming through..... Stoner, Lorenzo and Pedrosa all pushed Rossi to a new level and gave us races like Laguna 08 and Catalunya 09 to watch. We saw Pedrosa ride harder than ever during the second half of last year after he saw what Stoner could do with the Honda.
Dislike all you want but Marquez will push the current aliens, I don't think we've seen the very best of Lorenzo yet but riders like Marquez will bring the best out of him and improve the show for us.

@99 Crystal Ball
His cocky ego was never from what he did, or said off track, it was all from what he did on track, he pushed other riders off the track, and literally road thu them, basically did whatever he wanted... and very few times did he get in trouble for it, just look back at the last season and you will see two races in particular, with one race incident everybody wanted (and should have had) him to suspended, and race direction only made him start from the rear of the grid, and the other was basically ingnored Hopefully he has matured, only time will tell.
