MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino


Brain: Lets say after 6 years, Marquez has 65 wins and 5-6 titles and says, you know what, im going to the house and quits, are you going to still say that Rossi was better, he has more wins and championships. I
I will say that MM dominated in a fashion that no rider before him did, and that depending on the statistic, he's one of, if not the best ever. If the statistics favor Rossi (in terms of WC's), he will still get the nod. If we use two other riders - Hayden and Pedrosa - people still give Hayden the nod because he has a WC despite the fact that Pedrosa takes a huge **** on him in terms of raw wins/podiums. Make no mistake about it, MM is the real deal. I fully expect him to eclipse everybody other than Rossi in the next season or so.

MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino


Brain: Not me, the fact that he took a Ducati to the title means a lot more than taking a Honda to a title. You get unlimited bonus points for pulling that off. And before any starts chirping about how fast the Ducati was, it was still an ill handling pos that no one else could ride. He could.
So what's everybody else's excuse who couldn't bring the Honda or Yamaha to a title????

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Right tyres, 'wrong' bike


Noriben: @JimmyTheRealOne I think Firefly is talking about the whole package including all the personnel working for the team, not the bike alone. In other words Tech3 as a team is more competitive than LCR.
Just out of curiosity, what do you base that statement on? It's a genuine question, not a jab. I think T3 has achieved better results overall, but that's attributable to the riders that have been on T3 bikes. I think the LCR bike is more than capable, but Bradl is missing that small percentage to put it there. I like Bradl. I hope he gets another year on the bike.

MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino


PorkPie:
MOTOM:
paul joiner: Jorge stringing together 9 wins in a row?
2010 - 9 wins, but not in row.
That’s’ right Jorge has only ever won 3 in a row, on three occasions. Only 5 more times has he won back to back races. Stoner is similar in only having won 3 in a row, four times (and back to back five further times) Now don't forget Marc did 4 in a row in 2013, beating the above two in his rookie year! And, one would expect, very soon will match them for world titles and overtake them in race wins! In the modern era (post Mike the Bike, Ago etc) only Doohan (10) and Rossi (7) could ever put such runs of wins together (but not from the first race), and now, of course, Marc! I love a bit of history in the making!
You and I both. Marquez will also be one of the few to string together back-to-back titles too.

MotoGP » Marquez: Strategy was to copy Dani and Valentino


Brain: Casey's presence is what ended Rossi's dominance.
You give him too much credit. Rossi still went on to win 2 more WC's after Stoner appeared. I think both Stoner and Lorenzo tempered that dominance to point, but statistically Rossi is still one of the most dominant riders ever. Marquez will surely eclipse anything that Stoner and Lorenzo have ever achieved, and he may even reach Rossi's career achievements. History in the making!
