And neither will Pedrosa, Lorenzo or Rossi. However, MM did win moto2 in 2012 and they have very limited electronics compared to the factory gp bikes. He just seems to get the best out of whatever he rides, so I reckon he will be right up there in 2016. Of course, he will get beaten on the odd occasion, but he's here to stay and has one huge advantage - age.


and another huge advantage - lighter weight!


Except he is 8kg heavier than Pedrosa.

motogp1fan: Dear Vale its seems you're not there to win anymore,
9 time world champion with this attitude, i think it will be too much to ask for or just a dream to see you as 10 time world champion.Marquez wont let you to do it. so the question still remains the same

Can anybody beat MARC in the title race for years to come ? 2015 /16 /17

please feel free to comment .

I think Marquez will be beaten in 2016 when the new rules will be introduced. he will not benefit of the most sophisticated electronics and the seamless gearbox.

so you go and check our facts, this is what bothers me about this place, some people just don't pay attention and think their opinions are fact...

and then ome on here and try to shove their lies down other people's throats without ever in their lives throwing a leg over a bike let alone race.

martin.mm.108: cont... there was no tc on the NSR500 there wasn't even on the first RC211V, big red themselves said so.

check your facts and come correct or don't come at all...


"Among other changes in 2003, power was increased from about 200 to 240 bhp. Traction control was also added"

From wiki on the RCV211. Yes, check your facts mate.


yes the first year of the RC211V was 2002 not 2003....

again come correct or don't come at all...

sorry, it's not the electronics that matters, it's the time and energy that goes in to developing the traction control software and how it behaves that matters. Seriously, some of you believe in iPod's and fancy electronics, when the problem is about optimization and behavior. No, rule changes have always benefited MM, if you really believe Carmelo wants to hurt the next and coming idol of GPs, you really are naive.

Rule changes are there to help you believe in change, change that goes in to the pockets of one Mr. Carmelo Ezpeleta and Dorna Inc. Of co**** we all know who isn't racing in GPs anymore, who was hurting that change margin, and what rule was implemented in order to help protect Repsol's investment and Dorna's yellow idol brigade.

MotoMarc: For all that suggest or call for Rossi's retirement I'd like to smoke what you're smoking. Did Rossi lose confidence due to his past injury, friends death and two bad years with Ducati absolutely but did he lose his skill, ability and ambition/drive absolutely not. Has a new group of young, talented and hungry riders come into the Motogp yes. Has that top group of younger riders adapt quicker to changing technology that allow them to rider faster based on that technology yes. Has Rossi adapted as fast to the riding aids I think not as quick as the younger guys and is still a little less willing to trust that technology but has done a good job evenso.


What are you on about? Rossi has been using rider aids for longer than his rivals have been racing! His Honda V5 had traction control all the way back in 2002!



He also had TC on his NSR


get outta here there was no traction contro
