Whats wrong with you lot ? This is about Marquez pole. We could be witnessing the biggest step forward in riding a motorcycle awesomely quickly since Freddie Spencer burst on the scene.

Wow. I see this is the place to come to meet people who know absolutely nothing about MotoGP. V. Rossi is the benchmark. Marquez is a legend in the making but VR has been there, done that...a thousand times. Let's wait for the race to see what occurs. Only the very ignorant would write of #46 before any race,

What a talent MM is, unfortunately for Honda Yamaha will still win the riders championship with Lorenzo. Rossi and MM will still give us some excitement this season with Crutchlaw and Pedrosa adding a bit of interest. Honda's chance of a championship this year disappeared with Casey Stoner which is a pity as Marc and Casey would have been an unbeatable team.

last week the Yamahas had a clear edge and this week its Hondas turn. You have to give Marquez credit for setting the pace on a track where he is on equal footing.

It will finish the opposite of Qatar, 2 factory Hondas then 2 factory Yamahas. If there is an incident that shakes up the order my guess is Pedrosa bins it trying hard not to lose to his team mate.

6 agrees to a user who said "Rossi a waste of a good racing seat".

Wouldn't some slightly biased people be better off watching some sport they might actually understand something about rather than wasting their time and gall hoping to see someone fail, which is also unhealthy?

Mark Marquez's performance so far has been amazing but remember the rookie's of the recent past some of whom have done really well initially then fallen by the wayside. If Marquez can maintain and improve on his performance great, but time will tell.

Marques! Meet the new boss, same as the old boss ( now with added personality) I wouldn't read too much into qualifying, yeah, the honda's will run away with it, Dovi and Nicky will start going backwards after 6 laps. I dont think Bradle will be able to hack the pace for the whole race, my prediction is:
1st Mm
2nd Dp
3rd Jlo
4th Rossi
5th Cal.
