The only one who can stop Marc now is Marc himself.
If he rides within himself and doesnt go for victory every race,i cant see Jorge catching him.
Jorge needs Marc to have a DNF or some other catastrophic result.
Realistically Jorge needs to win every race now.
Marc doesnt.
Its that simple.

Exactly...Marc knows no fear...his age gives him lot of confidence to throw his bike at the corners at any speed...without any fear...Jlo has to really think about marc for 2014...This is marc's rookie year...Think think Jlo...
Coming to vale except misano he was great on his pace at the later half...I was expecting that in misano...But things went reverse...Something lacks i agree....But aragon is the place where rossi found the solution for his m1 in this season's testing...I hope he can be quite fast in aragon....Vale come on Go Go Go!!!

Pretty much agree with everything Scwantz says here. Poor old Dani barely gets a mention though!

Always the bridesmaid!

Does everyone forget Dani's finish to last season? Is he not even a factor this year???? I'd still keep an eye on him too.

If Lorenzo wins the next race I firmly believe Marquez wouldn't like that at all and in some ways he'd be under the pressure to beat Lorenzo again. The championship is far from being over.

MM's strong points are also his weaknesses at the moment He's here to beat them all, FP1, FP2, Q2, WUP, Race, each time he's riding the bike he wants to crush them.

That strategy deserves to be really respected, it's just how the sport should be played, but with the injury factor on the long term, it'll be a quite risky strategy. Kid has crashed 12 times this season already, iirc.

And let's get real too, Marquez's a phenomenon but Lorenzo also improved and he's never ever been that strong. Man is doing all the things the naysayers complained during the past few years. Heart, toughness and a lot of charisma.

Bottom line, It's a great season to watch and it could get even better.

I hope you right about Vale.. I say this because Aragon was allways tuff for him!! About Marquez i still say the same he has been incredible, he is super smart 4sure will be a King in motogp but this year i only beliave that he is Champion when the numbers say that the others dont have more chances.. He has been doing all great but FK is still a roockie 20 years old i think is to much for him to not make a mistake on this final rounds that hs almost smell the title.. just my view lets see if he continue to proving me wrong, next track Aragon is a very tuff place for Motogp 4sure we will have drama..

Also, another big factor in the tittle race is Valentino Rossi. If he's able to get back on track with his front end feeling to consistently keep up with the top 3, over a race distance, he's not going to be as easy as Pedrosa to toy with.

Please Marc, take note.

Yeah i agree.. lets see what yamaha can do about that!! Is what i call an exciting final every race that we have now is like finals and is great feelling..lolo i can t wait to wach

Lorenzo can win the remaining races this year,Rossi needs to pull another couple of places to help and Yamaha need to back Cal to the max to try and get a wheel infront of Marquez.
I was wondering if the Yammy no2 rider would forgo a win to help his team.
