Valentino Rossi: Marquez can be MotoGP world champion

Valentino Rossi believes rising Spanish star Marc Marquez has the potential to become MotoGP world champion in the future. And factory Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo reckons the former 125GP world champion will be competitive and fighting close to the front in MotoGP right from the start of the 2013 campaign. Marquez confirmed today on the eve of the Italian Grand Prix in...

Good move by Honda, the only person they ever wanted to replace Stoner.

What A Revolation ! NOT !

    Marc Marquez would not be joining the Honda factory team if they didnt think he was up to the job.Honda have got the rules changed just to get him into the factory team.You dont go to those lenghts for nothing.He is Caseys replacement & next year will be interesting.

    I dont think he will win next year because it will be a year to learn,but 2014 should see him become a serious contender for the title.I think Honda have made a good rider choice with Marc Marquez,he is a good investment for the future.Who else can take the fight to Jorge Lorenzo ? Dani ! Rossi ! I think not,even though Rossi on the factory Honda would have been interesting.

Shame Casey won't be part of the mix..

It would've been great to have a sorted Ducati with a hungry Rossi on the grid next year, with Marquez on the Honda as well as Stoner in top form. Unfortunately it would seem only one of those suggestions is guaranteed!.. Shame..

Casey will be missed

    Casey will be greatly missed,he is the only person in Moto GP at present capable of challenging Jorge Lorenzo.I have said it many times before,Casey & Jorge are at the same level in my opinion.Very different riding styles but both at the top of theyre game & both capable of winning the championship this year.

   With out Casey Jorge has no real competition untill Marq Marquez learns the ropes in this class.Its a shame Casey is leaving but I respect his decision & wish him a happy retirment when he leaves.

It's good to see some new riders in moto gp,but he needs to hold back a bit on the aggression ,plus Bradley smith, should be interesting,the only one to worry should be Micky Hayden,

COMPETITION

LORENZO 99 YOU SAY JORGE HASNT GOT ANY COMPETITION OTHER THAN STONER. DIDNT PEDROSA BEAT BOTH OF THEM FAIR AND SQUARE LAST WEEKEND AND ISNT PEDROSA 2ND IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP?? AS FOR MARQUEZ, THE JURY IS STILL OUT. MOTOGP 2 SUITS HIM BECAUSE HE IS VERY LIGHT AND ON THE BEST BIKE. IT COULD BE DIFFERENT ON A MOTOGP BIKE I PERSONALY WOULD LIKE TO SEE SCOTT READING ON A COMPETITIVE MOTOGP BIKE. HIS WIEGHT WOULDNT BE QUITE SO IMPORTANT AND HIS BIKE CONTROL AND AGGRESION IS JUST AS GOOD AS MARQUEZ

rachet

Next season, JLo should have not too much to worry about. Yeah Dani had a good w'end and is dong well. But over a season against Jorge? No chance. Jorges main rival is leaving and others are learning.

'L99' is right imo.

I do believe they wanted to sign Lorenzo to replace Pedrosa. They only re-signed him when they realised Lorenzo was staying with Yamaha.
