"I got a bit overwhelmed, the track was not allowing much space for me between the corners with this bigger bike and faster pace. I didn't have much time to think" - Marc Marquez.

wouldnt suprise me if he won on sunday now hes tasted victory and how fast he is already on a track hes not ridden the big bikes on yet.. sooner or later this kids going to dominate... whats he going to be like next year!!.... ive got him down to win the thing this year because he seems to have developed a style that allows him to tuck the front regularly but keep the bike up right... he just rides it untill he tucks and then stays on (id say over) that limit..really not seen anything like it..but i really didnt think hed get away with this so much on a moto gp bike .... he has an edge imo and has already learnt that he can push as much as anyone else out there and stay upright..

"wouldnt suprise me if" He re-ended someone...

Marquez is too fast for his own good.... he almost re-ended Lorenzo 3 times in Jerez (turn 6) and Pedrosa twice in Qatar.

Marquez rides over the limit and at times, is out of controll, all you had to do is watch the last race to see he has yet to get controll of his bike at speed when drafting, as he said it himself in post Jerez press confrence...

Ya, it wont surpise me at all when he takes his 1st victim out...

no, Lorenzo uses a less exaggerated profile through a corner which means the rate of closure between him and the guy behind, on a Honda will increase as they get closer to the corner.

If Lorenzo was just as hard on the brakes as the Hondas Marc would have not been caught out as much, I am guessing, but he still has problems with other riders, I have to think hes either inept or just in need of some physical training (to weak to be properly coordinated with the right hand)

Just hope he hurts himself and not another rider, watching him is epic but a big crash never looks far away.
Its racing yes but not at all costs, the rest have learnt this over the years.
When he's close to people it looks like they will pay the price and not him. Its motorSPORT, not combat.
