Regarding Marquez in the rain... it has been really annoying this season that Hewen and Julian Ryder keep saying, when refering to Le Mans last year, they keep saying over and over again that "it took Marquez 8 laps to learn to ride in the rain".

Why do they keep saying this? It's clear what happened at Lemans last year was that it stopped rainning, the track started drying out ,a dry line appeared and that was when Marquez was able to settle and start putting in faster times, but until then he was out of the seat for most of the race and it was literaly some kind of miracle that he didn't crash. So I don't agree with them on that at all and I wish they would stop saying it and making things up.

I think in a fully wet race, not just damp, Marquez would not be able to ride like he does, it would be either crash or go slower. Well that's my theory anyway, will have to wait and see.

Give Marquez a bit of practice riding in the rain and he will soon get up to speed, think back to how poorly Dani Pedrosa used to perform in the rain, he worked on it and and now is as good as anyone else
