MotoGP » Home MotoGP title not a target for Marquez


Sete: "Pedrosa while fast has never had the ability to fight and beat a top rider on equal machinery in a head to head battle. " You were obviously not at Laguna in 2009 when he put 8 seconds on Rossi riding the all conquering Yamaha! and how about 2012 when he had more wins than Lorenzo and Stoner but was denied the world championship when a brake locked on the starting grid. If you want to hate Dani maybe get your facts straight or people will dismiss you as just another pathetic Dani hater. Dani is a great rider. Show some respect.
Dani is a fast rider but has never been able to win a HEAD TO HEAD battle. Sure he can win when he's away at the front...like I said he's fast. Same goes for his qualifying. If he can run a race by himself he's top notch. I respect his speed just not his ability to battle one on one which is necessary to win championships...as he has learned.

If Marc had a teammate like Valentino or Jorge you can bet he would not be unbeaten thus far. Pedrosa while fast has never had the ability to fight and beat a top rider on equal machinery in a head to head battle. Marc's ability is unquestionable but his unbeaten streak and consequent record should be viewed no differently than Agos achievements on the MV...an anomaly.

Btw the Honda has ALWAYS been the best bike. Some seasons they didn't have the rider to develop it properly and utilize Hondas vast resources to bring home riders championships is the only difference. One only needs to look at the number of manufacturer championships they've won to varify this fact. They've been dominant as a manufacturer even with the absence of the best rider over that period Valentino Rossi. With a Casey stoner, Valentino Rossi, or Jorge Lorenzo they'd have every single rider title since 2003...no doubt in my mind

Moto89: @ RFS131: And yet Marc is doing to Dani what not even Stoner managed to do to him. Stoner was the fastest rider on the grid when it was him, Pedrosa, Rossi, and Lorenzo, yet there were several times were Pedrosa beat Stoner outright. Sometimes even by a big margin. And Pedrosa did have his few head to head victories. One example being Sachsenring 2012, when Stoner chucked it into the gravel on the last lap at turn 12 trying to pass Dani if you don't remember. Yet Dani hasn't been able to beat Marc at all now that Marquez has had only 1 seasons experience. And i very much doubt Lorenzo or Rossi would be faster on a Honda than Stoner was. So i doubt they would be beating Marc at any point on a Honda either.
Dani only beat casey by being away at the front that season. Funny the one example you use of a so called head to head battle was at Dani's best track where he still wasn't able to get away from Casey and without Casey's odd mistake would have undou
