A 20 year old rookie is leading the championship which is shaping up nicely and yet you all are arguing over a guy who finished on the podium. Give it a rest.

EDIT : Props to Crutchlow for another great result but he's not getting the factory bike due to his lack of talent or anything, its his mouth. As far as his duel with Rossi is concerned, Rossi won't finish below him in the standings.

@giveittocal 4 more laps? I'm trying to understand . On lap 19 he was 2.1 back and then the penultimate (2ns to last) lap he was 2.9 then ended up 4.0 back at the line. Where do you see him closing in that sequence? Go to Look at "analysis by lap" .. Cal never closed on rossi. He closed on MM but his gap was over 2 sec to rossi from the early laps and it never got smaller. Just sayin.

just if lorenzo was there and fit today he would have smoked them just look at fp1 on the moto gp website it shows how scary the guy is. he is by far the best yamaha rider and even cal says lorenzo the best no 1 can do the stuff lorenzo does the data explains all that.i belive cal is a better rider than rossi he has out quailfy him every time this season he just needs to sort out his consisentsie a bit better.good race by marques aswell he is the future man

What a strange weekend. Just when everyone thought Dani had the title in the bag. All we need now is Marquez to fall off at Laguna, ....which has a high probability, ......and Cal ........could be THE championship contender!

I have to admire this guy, tough as nails.

Oh my, ohh my..wasn't this thread about Marquez, firstly ?!
I can't retain a smile, thinking about all the fortune tellers who have told that MM will risk too much and for that he wouldn't succeed as a rookie .
I know it's the middle of the road though.

Marc Marquez to me is the best rider in the world. He can follow dani or Jorge and immidiatly do their pace almost always. He might win it this year because he is that good. He slams and gets up and goes without any problems. He will be #1 in HRC next year. He is going to be the rider to beat from this point on. Lets see how he handles it. Everyone says he has great maturity. Motogp needed a rider like him

Correct mate, but all this is nonsence, Rossi is first year wit M1, he must to adapt to ride, Cal is 3rd year, without wins, really i wish him win, but, i dont think that Cal will improve with Factory ride, now hes number one,in yams hell be second as Rossi now is, sow its not sow easy. Again Tech3 is brilliant team.
