MotoGP » Marquez straight up to speed in Mugello

Rockstar84: MotoGP has become like F1, Marquez becoming another Vettel! Waiting for the booing to start!
Vettel's booing isn't because he won so constistently, it's because he always has this uncool look on his face. A racer isn't just about speed. MotoGP's Vettel was Stoner, not Marquez. Marquez is passionate, always smiling, and always eager to scrap paint with fellow racers. He lacks Rossi's flamboyance and fan rapport of course but his riding is so passionate that he always strikes me with awe. He's the only guy on the grid who can ride a MotoGP bike in a way that is visibly wiggling and moving. With Marquez you can almost... feel the limit the bike is being ridden at.

MotoGP » Six of the best: Mugello MotoGPs

2004 was also very spectacular, and in my opinion would make a fine addition to this list. The race started n dry conditions, with some crazy, crazy racing - on occasion 3 or even 4 motorcycles would reach the end of the straight in... line abreast fashion, all trying to out-brake each-other. Just when things started settling down, here comes the rain, and re-shuffle the deck - back then rain meant a race-restart, with the grid being filled by riders in the order they crossed the line in the last lap before the race was red-flagged. Even more crazy racing ensued, with Rossi bouncing from 6th position to eventually win that thriller of a race.

MotoGP » Kevin Schwantz rides Suzuki MotoGP machine

Fo any real constructive feedback the bike needs to be ridden on its limit..
I agree with all your post except for that last part of it: A rider may bring a bike to its limit without actually doing a really fast lap time. A fast time means the bike is on its limit, yes but a bike on its limit doesn't necessarily mean a fast time. It all goes donw to rider skill, to exploit the bike as much as possible without crossing the limit. Myself, being a mediocre track rider, I managed to lowside my bike due to too late and strong braking while still being around 10 seconds off club racers pace. Did I or did I not bring the bike to its limit (and beyond)? :)
