For me the 2 place is the honest place for Lorenzo, He only loss because of is mistakes!! it can sound a bit to hard for Jorge but its the true. I agree that he outstands the performance on the M1 but who elso should do that? i mean he is the 2012 World Champion he rides the Yamaha M1 at is best since 2010 but is worcking with Yamaha since 2008 its 5 years perfecting is riding he is 26 years i think=) and its the perfect age to be a Top performer, young and Mature!! He proves to be a fighter and is a great rider i admire is perfection but anyway is mistake was part of is new pride since Stoner leave he feels to Strong he was brave at Assen no doubt but is mistake at the German Gp was really SAD he should be more smart he was like a Clow trying to set the world on fire again and end up wasting points, he change a bit because is acting more like Casey was, making fastest laps right away, like lossing the respect for the bike thinking that he controls at 100%, i remember in saying this th

i remember in saying this that he was lossing respect for the bike in 2008 when he start on fire the year saying that was esay but then was hard crash after hard crash, he told this on the movie fastest.. He also had cjances with Marquez when he lost points in mugello and in Australia so the overal 2 place is what he deserve.. Marquez was the True Star Incredible kid 4sure the respect and focus of lorenzo in 2014 will be diferente and i hope for good races..

I don't think Marquez raised the bar at all. Its not like he blitzed the field like Doohan, Rossi, or Stoner ever did. He lost to Lorenzo more than he won. So, I am not seeing this poll as other than a popularity contest and not a measure of the fastest rider. Marquez rode a great championship campaign...but he has yet to prove he is the FASTEST! Jorge rode a slower bike FASTER!
Next year promises to be great.

One can't help contemplating what would have happend if there had been riders like Lorenzo, Marquez, Stoner and Pedrosa at the begining of VR46 career instead of a bunch of average Joes. I guess that he wouldn't have been the "GOAT" but just yet another goat. Somewhat like the career of Ago who also crumbled when having to race against real top riders.

Jorge rode brilliantly in 2012, but come on!

Marquez was a ROOKIE in 2012. He may well have been on the best bike, but Pedrosa debuted in 2006 on the bike that won the 2006 championship. Lorenzo debuted in 2008 on the bike that won the 2008 championship.

Marquez deserves to come 1st! But Lorenzo was very impressive!
