Put Edwards on the best bike and he will be making podiums every round too.
If they didn't wave the rookie rule he wouldn't be doing so well, but..... He Spanish what do you expect,
He can only win when on Honda.

A great second half but he did and would have had more tyre left and as the track dried (more to his settings from warm-up) the track came to him.

Dani,Cal,Dovi and Rossi all were lapping much faster I think MM had the 4,5th fastest lap. He is a quick learner for sure and his feel is very, very good. Had dovi been able to fight as hard with MM as he did with Dani earlier in the race he may have struggles, as it was Dovi had nothing left and MM just outbraked him and gone and as this was what Dovi was superb at earlier in the race it was too easy for MM.

Still impressive and with Jlo and Rossi making themselves look like @ss clowns it looks like it is Repsol Vs Repsol for the title.. Mugello will start to decide things more in the favour of one way or the other!!!

He is a class act. A dumber rider would have pushed at the start to keep up with the old heads and probably lost it. He took his time got to know where the edge was, worked it out, and then proceeded to start doing fastest laps. I suspect towards the end his tyres were getting pretty shabby after his big push up the order through the middle/ latter half of the race.

This kid is not even an alien, he must come from a different dimension or something. Just how the hell didn't he crash?? He was running off at every corner, off the seat most of the time, he was all over the place and yet he managed to finish third? What the hell? The only explanation I can find is that when the track started to dry up that's when he started to go faster but until then, how he managed not to crash, I just don't know.

I liked Spalding's quote on Eurosport 20 laps in when he said people were tweeting that MM couldn't ride a MotoGP bike in the rain and they were right, but he can now.

Summed up his race. He is a special rider. He hasn't yet though had any difficulties and it will be interesting to see how he copes with adversity. Lorenzo got plenty of poles and results early on then proceeded to try to achieve low earth orbit on a number of occasions but came through that. Pedrosa has ridden injured most of the time. Nicky Hayden had Puig to contend with.

Marc Marquez, you wee legend. Gotta be very close call to who wins the championship now.

If its tight at the end of the season, we could really see some gloves off action! Shaweet!!!
