'The first feeling was quite good and the engine has some improvement... this is a very good base for the HRC engineers to work from but at the moment I prefer our current 2013 machine' - Marc Marquez

So far Marquez has taken a lot of flack for his on (and possibly over) the limit riding. However, he hasn't actually taken anybody out yet but himself. Also, there seems to be a culture developing in MotoGP that everyone should just be happy to be there. Marquez and Crutchlow obviously don't think so and it shows in the results.

impressive. Marquez' first laps here on a gp bike and hes already within .1 from stoners old record.. (granted it was on an 800cc machine). this kids the real deal and I think he will win again before rossi wins for the first time.

Lap records keep breaking year on year as there is more development and the bikes become faster.

The 800's will actually be faster than the current bikes on a twisty curvy track as they used to corner better.

Aragon is a track that favours more horsepower and has many straights were you can fo full throttle. Hence the lap record.

Casey could have this, Casey could have that! Well wake up! Stop being so hard on yourself! He's gone. Left of his own free will. Stating that he didn't like the sport for what it is. That he doesn't like the way his fans behave etc etc! The sooner you accept this the sooner you will heal!
