Like has already been said (I was thinking the same thing) Marquez put on a Stoneresque show... Dani did well to get so close. Expected a little more from Rossi & think he'll find it tough to get a podium this time.
Smith not looking comfortable on the Yam. Espagaro deserves a MotoGP bike not a sideshow bike.

re: "Huge Rossi fan here, but you can't be a title contender without qualifying properly"

then you're not that huge. mind you, for 99.9% of riders you're statement is true. however (comma), ross is the freak exception. qatar wasn't the 1st time we've seen him nullify a bad grid position...? it's like the UMPTEENTH time we've seen him nullify a bad grid position.

ps: not to say he'll be able to pull it off here. he's ice skating uphill (literally and figuratively) same as the rest.

Marc M rides just like Toni Elias and never like stoner!!!
Since i started watching motogp, this has been one of the most exciting riders on the grip, riding style wise that is, And MM is out here reminding us of Elias.

COTA please! How embarrassing! Kevin, deserves better

Amazing Marquez. But i don't think antbody is surprised at this time.
The guy has been incredible in the last 3 years.

Honestly I don't understand Rossi criticism. Have you started watching bikes today?
Rossi has been always bad at one lap, not a good qualifier, not pure speed like Stoner. Is more like overtalented mind to race. It's similar to Alonso in F1.

We should all be happy, and honoured to see the current level of riders in the game now. Only missing Stoner!

re: "Marc Marquez claims debut pole"


why is this Shocking? he dominated all the FP's, and he domindated the privet test... if anything this is expected!
he's been nearly a second a lap faster but once.
I spose your gona be shocked when he wins it too...

This is going to be a gap race MM out front by 10sec' followed by Dani followed by JL 10sec behind him... the real racing/battles will be in the 2 group...

Congats to Marquez on his 1st pole...

re: " Carl Fogarty"

My mistake, Cal I mean, but seriously, in the last race Cal crashed because he was over riding the bike trying to make up for a lack of horsepower. If he was on a factory bike he would have been fighting it out with MM and Rossi for second place. Support him !
