MotoGP » Redding: I’m starting from scratch

ProfessorX: honda is building the bike around Marquez. do you really think hes going to have a hard time adapting, especially when the electronics are being suited for him? not to mention the tire construction (no side grip anyone?)
So that's the angle you want to play? Another conspiracy theory instead of just admitting that maybe, just maybe, Marquez is just more talented? The bike wasn't "developed around Marquez" his debut season, and he STILL rode the pants off of the big bike his first year (and won the WC while breaking many records in the process).

MotoGP » Redding: I’m starting from scratch

Abefan: "Now if you think MM just jumped on the bike to ride like he doe, i THINK he had some private training before it was published, big companies, big money and so on. Just my thoughts " Nope, not allowed, he can go and ride a fireblade all day long if he wants, but their team contracts with Dorna do not allow testing other than that scheduled by Dorna. As a factory rider he would be sanctioned if he did.
Incorrect, M.Marquez has had 2 or 3 private tests on the Honda.
Irrelevant. He missed pre-season testing last season and still whooped everybody's asses.

MotoGP » Big gains but Vinales yet to find limit

F0ul: The one thing I would bet on is that Vinales will be a MotoGP champion - His talent is head and shoulders above Marquez, and its only the time to learn the bike and the track that is going to prevent him winning at least one race this year!
You'll end up eating your shoe making statements like that. That's the same thing that has been said about Spies, Crutchlow, this rider and that rider. It ain't that easy! People are very eager to try and align somebody with Marquez to marginalize and/or diminish his ability. There won't be another Marquez for a very long time.

MotoGP » Marquez: I had to cool down after the '58!

Rick180268: @ Codger and Brian, something you can't argue with is the fact that MM has had the might of Repsol behind him, while most other teams have struggled at times. Less weight means easier on tyres, brakes, suspension, faster off the line ,out of corners.
Repsol may provide opportunities, but the rider still needs to ride the bike. There are a lot of riders that come up through the Repsol funnel. I don't see any problem with that. The weight argument sounds tasty and delicious in theory, but some of the larger riders have shown that, while weight is important, it's not nearly as important as some people make it (when trying to make excuses about why a rider isn't performing). Conversely, smaller riders have shown that having the weight advantage doesn't turn you into a performer either. There are a lot of variables that come into play when it comes to a winning combination.
