re: "Marquez, who has won the previous three races to take a 21-point lead at the top of the points table"

regardless of what occurs from here on, history may yet reveal this "American hat trick" is what drew the curtain on 2013.

or rather 'heralded' a new era in GP racing :)

unfortunately for me to trust anything in this class of racing anymore its gonna require less control mechanisms and more competition, at least in F1 the teams themselves have enough interest, in the world of GPs it seems very much more 'monolith'ic (space odyssey 2001) ... :)

Marc and Casey have a similar "ride it like you stole it " style.
I would dearly love to see the 2 of them go head to head on similar machinery.I wouldnt be able to call it.
If both of them stayed injury free over a full season,i think it would be very close between them.
It would be an awesome sight.

@hoppy

Couldnt agree less mate, Marquez style is so much like early Rossi, that pass at the corkscrew was almost a FU lol.
If CS was riding against MM and he made that pass at the corkscrew, or any of the passes this year tbh in recent rounds, he would be bitching like a fish outta water. I dont dislike CS, but reality is he did bitch a whole lot. Personally I think MM is a proper breath of fresh air, and what I really would have liked to see would have been a Simoncelli Marquez last lap scrap............shame it wont ever happen.
