I love Marc Marquez riding style. He reminds me of Mr. Mick Doohan. He hangs on the side of the bike like he is riding a beast for his life.

dear Dani.

All of us know that one lap is nothing compared to 45 minutes of racing... marquez proved that last year by starting last from the grid and yet coming first.
this is the best opportunity for you to put your self in the hunt for the title, since this is the last year for you to take the crown, co'z next year marquez will be stronger than this year and lorenzo will always be there, and with the new dark horse Rossi showing us that he is still capable of springing surprises....
your fan...

its already started, people jumping ship to the new flavour of the month

last year you all cheering for Pedro saying he is going to win the 2012 tittle. then you say 2013 will be his year.

now MM comes along and and all of a sudden Pedro is washed up.

Im sure once Pedro finished ahead of MM you will all change your mind again.

Marquez was incredible in practise and quali, I predict he will have a few big accidents, just like Lorenzo in his first year, but surely MM is the next generation and will raise the bar yet again.
Realistically DPs last crack at the title before Honda put their main backing behind MM.
It'll be interesting to see what Bradl will do today.
Lorenzo possible podium??

To be fair to Pedro,he has been sidelined somewhat by people purely because of the blistering start to the season that MM has made.But if he gets one of his legendary slingshot starts,he could well upset a few apple carts today.
But i aggree with Tom on his point that this season could be last chane saloon for him.Eighth year on an HRC factory and no silverware to show for it.He is going to have to dig his heels in this season like never before.If MM finishes ahead of him in the points,will Pedro be replaced?
If so,by who?

@RG500 ...Then prepare to lose your money. MM will win this race if he does stay on 2 weels. Ped will come 2nd. I would like Ped to win too but lets face it, its just wishful thinking.
