Fantastic - absolutely fantastic... Awesome rider...
And despite the obvious talent and record youngest ever win (15 years a 100 odd days - even Marques did not manage that folks) along with racing his nuts off last year despite a ludicrous weight penalty, he gets a second rate ride even when compared to his future team mate. While Bradley gets the Yamaha M1, Marques gets Honda all due to the rule changes last year oh and Bradley even gets time to settle in... Despite never even matching the achievements of Scott...

Scott gets a ride that frankly ignores the rule change for Rookies last year that has allowed Bradley and Marques to shine over the rookies of the last two or three seasons by riding near works machines.
Why on earth has Scott got to start with customer engines and suspension?

But no, its not political and talent always wins through.. My ****.

123 - absolutely! And to think some posters are arguing different - fact is h will have less kit competitive kit than the guy in second place... Let alone less than his team mate.

When Redding has a bad race, he focuses on the next one and tries harder. When Espargaro has one, he cries. Some people say Espargaro will wipe the floor with Smith next year. I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

What a ride, proud as hell watching that race, he was brilliant.
Don't worry about what he is riding next year, he is only 20 and he'll show enough to get a decent bike the following year without the pressure of a factory bike.
Whilst Marquez may not have won at that age i don't think it is fair to point the finger at him. After seeing how he did yesterday and seeing how he has done since arriving in GP's i don't think anyone can argue that he is a bit special.
I believe Scott is pretty damn special too and he'll show them good and proper.
And who was it saying it was all over and Pol would take Scott for the title? Well after yesterdays showing i think Scott has shown everyone that he's the one in the driving seat, lot's of work for Pol to do.
Go #45!!
