The kid is fast no doubt about that, but let's not get too overexcited. Marquez tested in Sepang for 2 day on his own with the bike he is riding now, so clearly he has an advantage in terms of Set-up, gearing, lines to take on an RC213V. Having an extra day of testing really make a difference. Remember Misano last year when Ducati tested there and on race week's free practice was trashed by rain, Rossi and Hayden got close because of the advantage of extra practice. Just by looking at Marquez style, he seems to use the tires a lot, unlike Dani, Jlo and Rossi who are very tire conservative, and this year tires will make a difference.
