Interesting , how some comenters find many explanations why one is so good, like Honda , there is everything else but not Mark to be good, no that's immposible,and the answers are nice packed to make it more belivable :-)
Ofcourse is about the money , the best is the one having all over best package, which means a lot of money, but hove much and if more than the one chaising him, the closest rival, that is just guessing.
There is allvays one on the top and the rest wants to defeat him , to take his crown, that is all about in the sport , that makes it so atractive.

I was given VIP tickets for Valencia for my birthday. When it looked like Marc was going to have the title in the bag long before then, I was thinking of getting a refund and going to an earlier race next year instead. Now I'm starting to wonder if come Valencia he could actually be going for the Grand Slam. Might be worth going after all.

That same corner that Stoner crashed chasing Dani is the same corner Dani crashed in qually this year its a tricky corner corner thats caught many riders out over the years especially ones on the limit.

Sachsenring is also a tricky track to begin with anyway.

@ RFS131:

And yet Marc is doing to Dani what not even Stoner managed to do to him. Stoner was the fastest rider on the grid when it was him, Pedrosa, Rossi, and Lorenzo, yet there were several times were Pedrosa beat Stoner outright. Sometimes even by a big margin. And Pedrosa did have his few head to head victories. One example being Sachsenring 2012, when Stoner chucked it into the gravel on the last lap at turn 12 trying to pass Dani if you don't remember. Yet Dani hasn't been able to beat Marc at all now that Marquez has had only 1 seasons experience. And i very much doubt Lorenzo or Rossi would be faster on a Honda than Stoner was. So i doubt they would be beating Marc at any point on a Honda either.

"Pedrosa while fast has never had the ability to fight and beat a top rider on equal machinery in a head to head battle. "

You were obviously not at Laguna in 2009 when he put 8 seconds on Rossi riding the all conquering Yamaha!

and how about 2012 when he had more wins than Lorenzo and Stoner but was denied the world championship when a brake locked on the starting grid.

If you want to hate Dani maybe get your facts straight or people will dismiss you as just another pathetic Dani hater. Dani is a great rider. Show some respect.

As it was the cases of Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan, one might say.


And I'd bet Marquez would thrash them too on a bike...

"Same Applies to Rossi when people accuse him for blocking a potential seat of an young blood... He isn't riding a top bike in midpack.,, if not for Marc he would now be leading the CS this year."

No he wouldn't!

If Marq wasn't there Dani would be leading the championship.

cassyo: Who is fond of history in the making, should keep an eye on MM, while it lasts, because, usually, it takes decades until another barrier breaker will arive. How many decades?Well, it all depends on how further ahead will MM push the record bars, from now on. They are, already, at a level unseen before and it seems that he will not gonna give up soon.


Thats my point why it's not boring, it's a honour to watch

Braahp: It's hard to know if MM winning in this way is bad for the show or good, the only question now is how many races he can win in a row because, lets face it, he's already won the championship. Luckily most of the races have been pretty good so far but for me the main show has been in Moto3.

I do feel that MM's performance has been slightly flattered by always having the best equipment and rock solid sponsorship so It'll be interesting to see how MM stacks up against the all time greats in the end because he's certainly a phenomenon.


Lorenzo has had the best equipment since 2008,
Pedrosa has had the best equipment since 2006.
Rossi has had the best equipment (ignore the Ducati years) since Noah launched the ark.
I don't think their performances have been flattered. And as for sponsorship, no matter how much you have, it doesn't make you a better rider.
Comparing against the greats is always iffy No-one has seen Ago race one of these bikes, so comparis
