Pol should be justifiably proud. Outstanding ride. Not sold on KTM's progress at all though. The other bikes were nowhere again.  It's only Pol, and if a seat somewhere else (factory) opens up/he gets poached then they are in a world of pain.

Maybe so with the M1 fighting against the other top riders but the fact remains Marquez is trashing the competition. When Marquez gets away the race gets away for the rest of the field. I don't care who's got more top speed he's gone.

I agree that reaching Rossi's MotoGP/500 win total of 89 (which can still increase) might be a stretch, although that is "only" 10 wins a year for 4 years. I see it as more likely that he matches or exceeds Rossi's 9 titles instead. As young as Marquez is, it is already his 7th season in MotoGP. How likely is it that he can maintain his drive to keep racing twice as long in MotoGP, or avoid a career limiting injury? I doubt he will match Rossi's longevity before he is done one way or another.

Rossi had special tyres made and shipped for himself. Then he raced against pushovers who wouldn't win a moto 3 race today if their life depended on it. Then he went to a definitely race winning and very possibly a championship capable bike and had 3 podiums in 2 years. And he is the least winning rider since. When he can't have special tyres he is struggling to win races.

Great ride, let’s hope he pushes on from here. He has the talent and the bike to do so.
