Brno is one track has famous has Assen, its one track that many riders enjoy and we can wach good battles!! I think in terms of top performance both Honda and Yamaha are 50 50 i think Yamaha is better on the inicial part of the track and the Honda is good on the Power part that is on the final part of the track the uphill part where Pedrosa pass lorenzo with Honda Power last year.. But like Marquez say Yamaha test there is a good track for them and i bealive they will use the new gear Box, i really hope that they use te now i think is really needed to fight with Honda this year, Marquez is rocking confidence and they need to stop that.. Anyway aim with Yamaha i think they will Win all bet on one fight between Lorenzo and Rossi for 1 place..=).. GO Rossi

hope the lorenzo wins this one, so that he can be in the title hunt. Also taking nothing away from the majestic Marc, but would be nice for the championship if he comes in 3rd after lorenzo and dani. Would be even better if Rossi manages the final podium and pushes him to Fourth. then we shall all have a battle my friends..!!!

Love the way Marquez always plays down his chances even though he knows he's gonna smoke 'em all!

I have to agree mate.The term smiling assassin comes to mind!
Got to like the kid.He is a true talent that is only going to get better.The rest of the grid are going to have to up the ante,its as simple as that.I had Jorge down as favourite to retain the title this year,but this young kid has completely amazed me with the speed he has gelled with the 1000cc bike.The only person who is likely to stop Marc winning the title this year is Marc himself!
If you know what i mean.

Although Marquez is winning races, those non battles for victory is getting boring. Marquez may be fast but I want to see a close fight for the win. Not going to give credits to riders who clear off in the distance winning races in that way. There's more action in this article than on track....

More sound bytes and media drivel I think. Marquez has the package to be super competitive everywhere - this sort of statement smacks more of trying to introduce the impression or illusion of there being more competition and doubt over the general outcome than there actually is.

Marquez on that megabucks sorted Honda will be right in the hunt for the win. We know it and he knows it.

Rossi was Struggling the whole weekend and suddenly started to lap as quick as the other 3 did in last 10 laps of indy race,, when he can do this when tyre wear starts to occur, then why can't he do when tyres are fresh. It simply means that HE STILL CAN but the problem is Surely not about lack of potential but its a mixture of factors like riding style and setup.

So don't just write off Rossi because he is going to come up with a good setup anytime soon.

For sure if he gets the best setup, his race result will improve in big way but his qualification won't improve drastically because qualification is all about getting that little bit extra beyond your 100% and at 34 he is not getting that as good as the young ones...

DrWho.
The only way we are going to see riders having close battles every weekend is by scrapping factory prototypes.
Until then we are going to have to put up with 4 riders winning every race in the season.
Its as simple as that.
Put everyone on an identical machine and we will see who the real fast boys are.But i have a feeling the same guys would be at the front!

GUNA, it just means his tires are lasting longer :) ha ha ha. Is he getting special support? probably not, hes probably thinking about the entire race when it comes to setup, but it's clear he doesn't have the way with his current bike/tires.

btw, whose that guy pretending to be a circus clown on the top step? Difference between Rossi/Lorenzo vs. Marc, the former believed it, the guy currently occupying the top step knows better :) and hes not as good an actor, that's really where Marc will end up doing most of his learning btw, learning how to manipulate the masses.
