Guys a genius in the makin' Def a Rossi replacement. First front runner since that seems to genuinely enjoy the seat of his pants racing that Rossi did. No moaning and always has a smile on his face. Very refreshing!

He's doing it again. He's not only fastest, he's also second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth fastest....

It must be tough for the rest of the field to look at the timesheets and see that.

ayan.art: no surprise. circuit with the longest straight (advantage for honda's powerful engine)


Top speed plays a part in a fast lap, a small part. Yes Honda has the fastest bike on the grid, but the fastest bike on the day [a Honda], sits 1.3 seconds off the top spot. Honda has a 2.5 mph advantage on the Yamaha on that longest straight in GP, hardly the end of the world. Marquez was faster in every sector than the fastest Yamaha, He is the difference at the moment. It will tighten up some tomorrow, but if it doesnt, sit back and enjoy the work of a rider in the zone. That can be as awe inspiring as photo finish.
