That is impressive Márquez putting the Honda in front of the Ducatis at this track... don't know what to expect for the race. 

Looking at FP4 it looks like Once again Marc, Dani and Vale have the best outright pace with a few others close. Marc did 9 1:24 laps, Rossi did 8. They had the best pace for sure. Let's hope we get an exciting race this time rather than a race where the leader is up by 20 seconds due to strategy rather than outright speed. Not knocking Marc. He did great last Sunday  , just saying it's boring to watch on TV. 

This track produces parade style races, so l dont think it will be the most exciting race tomorrow, but maybe a tense one like last year. Looking at pace strangely the Ducatis don't look anything special,  but l think a lot will depend on tyres, it seems some are considering using the soft but today the softs were not working for some like Dovi, so we'll see. 

Putting a bike that's struggling in acceleration on pole at a Ducati track, and some people still call him "Lucky" to win races and "Slow"

SPEEDYMONSTER: Marquez can sniff another world title, he is riding the wheels off that bike. Lucky, he's not lucky he's just on top of his game. Off topic, Jorge had a better quali today, Dovi doing a great job this year, he could end up on the top step tomorrow. 

None has ever called MM slow. By the way another thing that isn't slow.. the factory team Honda

Contemplation: every once in a while in all sorts of life, a standout comes along to elevate further the skills and abililties. At this moment, it is churlish not to see Marquez in MotoGP as the arrival of another ?  Just as Rossi has done (and still does) the same over his career. I wonder if Marquez will have the same longevity at the very top. The lad can ride that's for sure.

Its not a fair reflection of things I do not think, to try compare performances and abilities from different eras (different frames, engines, tires, competition, tracks, technology etc), but the fact that Rossi has been competing across a long timeframe and seen many changes and even now is still racing at the sharp end is very impressive - whether you like Rossi or not!

I have the same view towards John McGuiness in what is a *really* challenging sport in my view.

There are just some that come along that raise the bar. Where does it [whatever makes them great at it] come from!

That's a good point. I think I until Rossi is still racing and his dishing out such good performances (at his age), is it sensible to even make comparisons with the younger riders? Wouldn't it be fair to make that comparison only when that other young rider(s) come to his age?

You could at least put a picture of today for today's news crash.

Sharp end? 7th!
