I must have missed something, but isn't part of racing for a championship not pushing over the limit and not hurting yourself so you can be there to race?? Or did someone else take out JL and DP and it didn't get reported?
So is it really a gift? I would think a gift is where the bike breaks or someone else took out the rider, and even bad equipment.

No kidding, we decided, to hit the corkscrew first and then hit the other corners and end up at 11 and be close to the MC parking to be able to escape the traffic right after the race.
Good thing because we watched the beginning of the race from half way up the hill to the top of the cork screw and arrived just in time at the perfect spot to see the pass. I was so happy. Even though I was unhappy about Rossi being passed I was overjoyed to see it. Good move by MM, that is my kind of racing.
But I have to admit being there at the 2008 pass was my favorite. I guess all my luck gets saved for moments like that, because the rest of the time....well..

@ Shamarone.

I find myself in agreement with all of your posts on this thread. Yep, I'm surprised too. Your style is cryptic and somewhat irreverent, but your point is well made - pity most won't get it or think that you're smoking something.

Yep, Marquez has won over the baying crowd, and shall now inherit the MotoGP crown as a rookie. It has been written. Nope not by some deity, but scripted by those rather more earthy. The market research points the way, and the results say "Marquez gets us the best return".

MM has balls, talent and the best bike out there. He also has "the support" now to go all the way. Sorry Dani, but you just got nudged to the kerb and on the fringe to be the bridesmaid again.

Marquez will struggle as a Rookie at a track he's never ridden before...... a mythical hook cast out by the media before the race weekend that so many bit on.

Of course, MM went out fast straight away (like I said, & Why he would), then Qualified front row, and went out to win, looking like his bike was perfectly set-up for him from day 1 and throughout.

You fish keep on swallowing the hooks, and believing that its just his (real) talent that does this, and not the VAST set-up data and huge resources of HRC that had that bike set-up before his plane landed.

put MM on say BS's Tech 3 (let alone a Ducati or a CRT). Would he have had a great set-up straight off, and then won? Errrr.... No.
