Please don't say that Marc is the new number one in the repsol team recent years have shown that Honda will put the same amount of support behind their factory riders equally. They showed this was the case with Casey, Dani, Dovi, and Simoncelli all having full factory support at the same time.
So no Marc is not the new number one rider Honda will put equal support behind both their factory riders no matter the situation and will not jeopardise either riders chances at the championship.

I'm guessing that most people here mean by MM being the new number one rider, is that he will beat Perdrosa on most occasions. Of course anything can happen in MotoGP, but it's been a while since I have seen a rookie this good.

Great win from Marc and another top level ride from Cal, who is beginning to knock on the door of a win.

Coincidentally, Mr Takaaki Kimura, Senior Managing Executive Officer of Yamaha Motor Co. attended the race this weekend (quite a rare thing for him to do) and was due to meet with Tech 3 boss Herve Poncharal.

I trust he watched the race with interest.

If, when, should, would!!! If i were god all u people wouldn't be alive!!
Get a grip and be reallistic.......
Marquez is using old set upps, Cal is riding the 2012 championship winning machine, and rossi is trying to adapt a bike to himself which is build for another rider.
THE fact remains jorge and dani both made a mistake and paid for it.

Boring race overall but not all is lost for Dani only two points seperate him and Dani and when Jorge comes back he will be 30 odd points down.
Now I have a feeling that Jorge has been in this situation before championship-wise and still clawed the title back. The only person that will break the Honda love fest will be Jorge the guy is just that good can't see anybody else doing it Rossi make all the stories up you want he's developing the bike to suit himself he's focusing on race pace whatever it's a broken record that I'm never going to buy into he's top class sure but its not good to be beat by a rider on more or less equal machinery. It's good to see some other people like Cal coming up to for a change Dovi was better than Cal last year fact but Yamaha aren't stupid Dovi had his shot on factory machinery and more than likely peaked with Honda and didn't deliver but given the choice between two Italians who aren't expected to beat Jorge to the title the one with massive marketabil

re: "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"

it's not his mouth. it's the "glass ceiling"... and his face and hands are pressed right up against it.
