MotoGP » Rossi: Marquez improved, but 2013 more impressive


tommytrojan1......thankyou for those kind words. I agree that I'm brilliant but really, I'm merely pointing out that, love him or hate him, he has added some sparkle to this season. I'll brilliantly give the opposite side of the coin. If Marc wasn't here then Lozzer would be leading. I haven't done the math but the 5 points for wins ( his current tally of 2nds would become wins ) would put him top With his second half of the season he would deserve to be there.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


It has always struck me that although Honda are 4stroke people, they very soon learnt how to make smoker. Weren't afraid to experiment with them either. Although a 4stroke man myself I did like that 3 cylinder job that they made for Fast Freddy......I liked the 500cc twin that they knocked up in the change over period too. Talking of 3 cylinders....I wish MotoGP would go over to 3cyls.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


RSMick......Us old ferts maybe don't know any more than the younger guys, we just have more memories to draw from, when forming an opinion. Doesn't make that opinion right though ( except in my case of course ) Often mention is made of AGO. It is interesting that when he left MV to ride for Yamaha it was somewhat acrimonious. It was much the same as when Stoner changed from Ducati to Honda or when Rossi went from Yamaha to Ducati ( also when he went from Honda to Yamaha ) Interestingly, apart from Rossi's debacle at Ducati, they were all successful after the change. If nothing else was achieved, Rossi's failure at Ducati opened their eyes to the fact that it was the factory that had to change. Even now, despite Dovi's results, that bike is still difficult to ride. Back on topic, I'm so, so glad to be around to see Marc showing us how it should be done.

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


Samas....We are in danger of boring the younger ones on this site, talking about the old days. Even they can probably grasp the excitement generated when Honda unwrapped a 6cyl 250cc, or a 5 cylinder 125cc, Yamaha wheeling out a 4 cylinder 125cc 2stroke. There was even twin cylinder 50ccs (yes, fifty). We can only guess what the limit could have been. Imagine a doubled up 5cyl 125cc, giving a 10cyl 250cc. (it would have had a power band of around 500revs :) )

MotoGP » Marquez success fuels hunger for 'more titles'


Now that Marc has the Trophy in his pocket I hope he goes all out for wins to increase his win tally. The other 3 will be at the limit to garner 2nd in the Championship and where Marc finishes in the races from now on will have some influence on who emerges as Title runner up. Marc's results aside the form book suggests that Jorge will walk it....it also implies that Dani will come 4th. I half hope that Rossi gets it, simply because so many had written him off. Anything can happen....but we can be assured that all 3 will be giving their all.
