the commentators trying to comfort themselves after watching the awesome talent Stoner drift and slide the bike in slow-motion replays was pathetic "its ok, there will be others that will follow, Marc Marquez for example". What a joke, there will be none that can drift and muscle a bike into submission like Stoner, Rossi or Lorenzo dont even come close so why would Marquez on his yellow brick road to the premier class????
