Dutch MotoGP: Marquez 'It can’t go on forever!'

“We are still in enjoying a really good momentum but we know it can't go on forever!” - Marc Marquez.
MotoGP champion Marc Marquez insists he is feeling far from invincible despite seven victories in a row heading into this weekend's Assen round.

The Repsol Honda star kept his perfect 2014 streak alive in Catalunya after recovering from a fall in qualifying, ending his unbeaten pole run, to win a thrilling Sunday showdown involving Dani Pedrosa, Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.

“We are still in enjoying a really good momentum but we know it can't go on forever!” said Marquez, who finished runner-up to Rossi at Assen last year.

“I really like Assen and have had some good results in the lower categories, and last year we took second in my first visit there on the MotoGP machine.

“The weather is always unpredictable there so we will, as always, work hard from the first session to find a good setup.”

Marquez's perfect 175 points means he is now 58 points clear of Yamaha rider Rossi.

Marquez isn't stupid, he's been studying Rossi for years and he knows Rossi never gives up, Rossi made that memorable comeback against Hayden in 2006 but unfortunately that time it was too little too late, he de-throned Stoner in 2008 once he got equal tyres as Stoner and he's now upped his game to be above the level of Lorenzo when everybody thought he couldn't beat Lorenzo, Marquez knows that sooner or later Rossi will get the Yamaha back to winning ways.

" but is he winning because of his talent? the answer is 'NO'." Hey jorgebest, you have thoroughly convinced us that you don't like MM. And that's because he doesn't have talent? Well thanks for enlightening me at least! I like some others, was somehow deceived into thinking he had an enormous, in fact unparalleled talent. I feel so gullible to have believed the hype.
