"How about competing in both Moto GP and Moto2 next year?"

While we are at it slap moto3 in their as well. Only three other riders have won races in three grand prix classes Rossi, Hailwood and Read.

He'd put himself in a catagory all his own if he did that.

I think there are rules against competing in mutiple classes nowadays, but don't quote me on that, i might be wrong. But even if there weren't, i reckon Honda would be against it.

Do you mean 3 GP classes in the same year? Or championships in 3 classes?
A little confused by that thats all.
Because both Read and Hailwood competed in 3 classes in 1 year... But Rossi hasn't, he's won titles in each category which Marquez has already done.

I thought exactly the same as Dovi after Mugello, if Marquez was able to beat Lorenzo there, he can beat him anywhere.

It's scary how much he has improved, and he can only get better next year. Maybe for 2016 things will be differnet with the new tyres and control ecu, but I have a feeling Marquez would be fast on a bike with no wheels.
If I wasn't seeing what he's doing , I wouldn't believe it.

@ Garcia:

If i was one of the other riders, i'd be worried for 2016, simply because Marquez grew up riding dirt bikes before he took part in road racing which is unusual for a european rider. I've noticed that the riders with the best bike control tend to be riders that grew up riding dirt bikes. So in my mind anything that is done to make the bikes harder to ride will play directly into Marc's hands.

Less traction control and and i'm assuming tyres with less grip initially at least are certainly not going to help riders like Lorenzo who like everything as smooth as possible. Marquez's advantage is noticeably at it's biggest when grip levels are low. It's no accident that during the Superstigio event, Marc was the only gp rider capable of challening of Brad Baker and all other gp riders were left for dead.
