MotoGP » Alex Marquez makes MotoGP debut - alongside Marc!


Why do people suppose that Repsol Honda will select a rider based on their surname? Honda are there to win and will sign the best available riders, as they have always done. Its not like they need a bit of a PR boost or are short of sponsorship. If Alex cleans up in moto2, he may get added to HRCs wish list but even that will not guarantee him a Repsol ride.

MotoGP » Double trouble! Alex rides with Marc for MotoGP debut


qwerty1: Favoritism to an entirely new level. Whoever has had a motogp test ride for winning the lowest class before? Not even moto2 winners get this treat, every time, if at all. Whilst everyone here appears to be reveling in the "history" etc, I think it is a bad move Dorna/Honda to allow this to happen. Had Miller won it on Sunday, and not be going to motogp anyway, he wouldn't have got this from some other team. Honda and Dorna, perfect bedfellows.
Of course he would, if he had a brother who was a motogp world champ and if he had won Hondas first moto3 manufacturers championship. But he is only a runner up with no brother. Besides, he is going to motogp so will get a whole season of riding a big bike.

MotoGP » Jack Miller: It’s out of this world!


JedPB67:
Ah choo. Rossi's no 1 sneeze!: ". If anyone could rely on their passport it would be Spaniards followed by Italians." How many Brits in MotoGP and when was the last time a Brit won a race? The Spanish (in particular) and Italians have huge depths of talent - they've earned their rides.
And which championship have all the talented British riders come through? That'll be Spain then, or in the exception of Lowes, from winning a World Supersport title.
Crutchlow can be another exception then.
