no, wake-up and I are two different persons.

btw, my theory is holding water, and yes Repsol did push Honda to Bridgestone, and yes, Bridgestone will pay out to Honda this year :)

It's a circus, even the people in the paddock will admit as much, this is not F1, this is MotoGP and the level of interest and investment is much smaller and much more oriented towards Spain.

It is what it is, and now that Rossi is leaving GPs Marquez will take his place and all the fans who love to watch the same person win over and over again will have more irrational viewing time checking out sponsor ads with the new kid in town.

I predicted Dani winning almost all the races last year and I was right, I picked Honda blowing out the competition this year and I will be right because I understand politics leads competition in the pro-sports world. Believers can believe what ever they want, I look at patterns of behavior and try to apply some logic.

Marquez is meant to win, because the circus want him to be the new ring leader, anyone can see this, this is very obvious.

If you want to understand whats going to happen in MotoGP racing I will tell you the secret... You ready?

Listen to who the commentators try to talk up, they get paid to promote the prestige and the myths to set the stage for the actors. The actors have their parts to play, but the game is most certainly rigged. Casey Stoner said it himself, when he mentioned it as little more than being a puppet.

The control tire kept Rossi's prestige, and now it will secure Marquez and the fans expectations about him, this is how it works, and the fans will keep watching GP racing knowing that they can expect the same person to win and the commentators will preach and the fans will repeat, and the advertisers will keep enough people interested and commentators will keep their jobs, etc, etc, etc, etc. For sure anyone would like to win, but politics determines the way the wind

Lorenzo needs to wake up. He needs to do better than 3rd at Mugello or else he will be shaking his head all the way to Catalunya, lol.

@prof-x
How do you suppose that Bridgestone developed the 2013 control tyre specifically for Marquez? He's only ridden a MotoGP bike a handful of times.
And if they did, why isn't he winning every race?

Maybe the tyres aren't so different to last year. Honda performed a lot better after they changed the frame and the engine to work better with the tyres.
