I am running out of things to say about this young kid.
He has no fear and will ride the wheels off that bike to win a race.
Start scribing his name on the trophy now.
I just cant see anyone stopping this one man freight train.

Ok, anybody notice Marquez was wearing on big watch on his left wrist in the post race pictures, maybe he wanted to make sure he got done on time, cause he had other things to do today and did not want to be late. Wondering if he was checking it during the race, might have slowed him down a bit. Smile.

Lorenzo was the man of the weekend. We all know the Honda has 10-ish horses more and their million dollar "supplier" magic gearbox saves them about 0.2 s a lap...so without exaggeration: The Honda's should have won with at least 7-8 s. so when I subtract that we all know where the riders really are :-)

Not saying anything about Marc, but let's keep our feet on the ground, He's not going to win on a Duc or do what Lorenzo did on the Yam...they need to do their homework and at least get equivalent hardware...

Anyone on a Honda should be up front. Lorenzo, Cal and Rossi are the underdogs.

Man this kid is the real thing, and i will enjoy watching him in the future, as for Honda is now a step ahead of the field and is the bike to beat, also Yamaha bike development seems to have suffered a stall perhaps Rossi can shed some enlightenment to the engineers to improve it, and did you guys notice that at parc ferme the lip on Puig and Lorenzo i think they both know it is over for both.

To see how he slid that bike into turn 10 with six laps to go showed me that no matter what's going on around him and what he has to do, he's gonna fight tooth and nail until the race is over. That bike was sliding all over the place and he never took his eyes off of the ball. Amazing really. I've been watching him all year but, I've never been truly impressed with him (mainly due to him inheriting an awesome bike) until today. Lorenzo and Pedrosa were fit and Marquez still got the best of them. He was never really out of touch the whole race and controlled everything racewise like a genius. Someone better stop him soon or this title is his.

I said Marquez would be a dang good rookie and yes he has exceeded my expectation. I saw from moto2 that he was the best. Although people spoke about machine advantage I saw that this was not totally true because in Valencia he won in the wet FROM LAST!!! And on this forum we always preach about the great leveler and he did that in wet and dry conditions. However I thought it would be about Pedro and Lorenzo for the title with MM, Rossi, and Cal for the rest. So this is impressive from the best rookie of the last 30 years.....

They say a special talent comes along every 10yrs and dominates.

Lorenzo, Stoner could not win back to back titles and Pedrosa zero!

How good are they really?
