    To quote Mr. David Emmett, “Marquez’s reign of terror continues apace in MotoGP.”

    I’ve watched each Q2 this year and wondered what the others will have to do to keep up with (forget beat) this Marquez kid. I mean 1 full second almost !?!

    I cant see anyone matching the dominance of M.M. on the factory HRC bike anytime soon. But as Marq himself has said time and time again (albiet with a smirk each time) “the season is still early, anything can happen” :).

    It’s gonna be another COTA, I reckon.
    Props to Marquez but this isn’t racing, it’s just a massacre.

  4. Paul McM says:

    Ok, Lorenzo will probably make another mad dash to the front… But Marquez, with extra pace in his pocket, can sit in second for 10 laps and then when Jorge tires, MM does a ‘horizon job’ on the rest of the pack. Hopefully Lorenzo stays in contact and doesn’t crash out…

  5. Claudia says:

    This race is going to be very interesting. Lorenzo has a lot to prove so I think we may see a very cautious first 5 or 6 laps then really putting the heat on the other riders. Marquez will be laying down a path of rubber no doubt because let’s face it, he is 10ft tall and bullet proof. I think Rossi will hold on strong especially since there are improvments overall but I don’t think will see action until about 10 laps in but I could be wrong. Perdrosa has the benefit of consistency on his side so I won’t be surprised if he gets a podium finish. Now Dovi, Bradl, Smith and Iannone is where we need to be keeping our eyes but we should also see so good riding from Aleix Espargo since he has had a taste of the top lines on the track. Overall this is a great year to be a fan since the two stroke era.

    May I borrow your crystal ball?
