Marquez has the best, fastest, best supported, best data etc. package by a distance, on a very fast track.

If MM being at the sharp end under such conditions is remotely surprising to anyone, then where have they been hiding?

DP tends to start a weekend steady & build, but as the only other guy with (hopefully - we cannot be certain) the exact same support MM has, then you can be pretty certain he'll be up the pointy end come Sunday too.

It'll be a surprise to me if (barring mistake or accident) it its anything other than an HRC 1-2 at the flag.

The above is no disrespect to JL, CC, VR or any of the others by the way.

I just don't think anyone else has the tools for their talent and efforts to be able to compete with the HRC riders' advantages.

When it comes right down to it, you can't beat Honda when they have 10x the resources of even Factory Yamaha, as well as influence that has seen the technical rules of MotoGP steered to a direction where their resource advantage is maximised.

I keep saying it - MotoGP is a done deal folks - Honda cannot and will not be beaten to either the Constructors OR Riders WC in 2013.

Sure Honda has influence on Dorna, but u will be mistaken if u think Dorna helps Honda to win Championship.
Last year Dorna introduced new tires in the middle of the year just to help Jorge win the title.
When Rossi was on Yamaha, Dorna always helped Yamaha because Rossi was their Cash Cow.

I posted the statement below before the Brno race, and it was spot on. I think the same is perfectly likely at Silverstone (& indeed other tracks)....

There's so much manipulation and fakery going on that its hard for me to take MotoGP happenings at face value.

Odds for a Marquez running in a safe high position and not attacking till a later move through to a podium/win?

It's a common theme already and there's similarities to a lot of Vale's races of a few years back when HE was the golden one.

Suspicious? ME?
