Watching race Sunday 4th May 2014, Mr. Marquez just looks so dominant, as if he truly has another 0.5sec a lap at least in him, yet Rossi is riding out of his skin to get 3rd. I think this Honda is a stunning bit of kit AND Marquez is riding it like a Moto2 bike with 250HP lol.
I watched and re-watched him slowed down, and apart from backing it in like the Moto2, (Electronics in MotoGP manages tyre/grip), everything else is similar to that class. The cut n thrust passing/blocking, fairing bashing, he is totally at ease in HIS Element.
Now Rossi is emulating his style and riding a bit looser, throwing the bike around, as the engine development is out of question (New Rules)(Stupid IMO) weight distribution/grip/electronics is only possible upgrade.
Unless Lorenzo & Rossi become 15KG lighter AND better bike the possibilities of beating Marquez in next season or two is a slim chance, if that.
ALL words are my own opinion, please add your own, as this is a subject that needs answers. " />
