Nicky Hayden tips Marc Marquez to shine early

Factory Ducati rider Nicky Hayden says he expects highly rated rookie Marc Marquez to be competitive immediately when the new MotoGP season kicks off in Qatar in early April. Marquez will replace retired double MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner at Repsol Honda in 2013 and several high profile rivals have tipped the teenager to make an instant impact. The latest is American...

Nice post and i pretty much agree with all of it. The failings of Casey IMO was maybe a desire to win too much (the same maybe said of Marquez) and being over sensitive to what people thought of him. A more clinical approach to the sport would have given him a few more titles i'm sure. I don't fall in with those who have called him a coward or a loser for retiring when he has. If hes happy fair play. Benny, posting under the influence of red wine last night so was in a very placid mood. We both know the bulk of people in here dont have much of a clue about the real racing world (i can put up with them) its the one who we know, know better but still spout shit to big up their favorite riders. For my mind there's four proven podium regulars (moto GP level) in the field . Pedrosa ,Lorenzo, Rossi and Dovi. although Dovi may struggle with the Ducati this year.then there's Marquez Crutchlow and Bradl that should be in contention for the podium this year if they have learnt enough from last season. Marquez is a super talent though, its his temperament that's the big question...

Great article about Rossi's development skills

Great article about Rossi's development skills: It isn't that we don't have confidence in Rossi's feedback," Ciabatti said. "The pressure and the lack of results created a vicious cycle in which he wasn't relaxed enough to completely test the material prepared for him. We simply believe that there is potential and that it wasn't completely explored last year." http://www.superbikeplanet.com/2013/Jan/130117lpksc.htm

so amusing

Having been an occasional oberserver to this forum for the last couple of years I find it so amusing the way posters react to each other.
It seems so important to some that they have to prove their point is correct and others are wrong.
Also you have the ones like Carcleanerboy that seems to think he has superior knowledge to others but how lucky they are are because he can put up with them.Who the hell do you think you are?
If you know so much about the real racing world why are all your posts full of rubbish that comes from your head and not from the real world.
A more clinical approach would have given him more titles? What rubbsh.Stoner had so much natural ability and as long as he had a good bike he could beat anybody.The only way Stoner would have got more titles was not to retire.

There called opinions ,you never heard of them? Casey has only won two titles in Seven years in the top class. Yes IMO a more clinical approach would have netted him more titles. If he was such a natural talent why did it take him four years to back up hid title win? A naturally talented rider with a clinical mind will real off back to back titles (or five in a row ) whilst in their prime. Two in seven years? Natural talent but flawed. If Marquez turns out to be the rider many think he is, a period of dominance could well follow. But hey its only a opinion.

natural talent

Stoner arguably could have /should have won the 2012 title, but ultimately although he had already made things difficult for himself he lost his chance due to a crash on a circuit which he had called substandard, it would seem correctly.

Otherwise requiring him to win multiple titles on a ducati would seem  rather harsh given that a bloke with the proven talent to win 7 titles couldn't even win a race for them in 2 years. Another bloke called eddie lawson considered by some to have a modicum of talent, enough to win him 4 titles on factory yamaha and/or honda bikes anyway, didn't win any titles for cagiva either. If you want to argue stoner should have organised himself on to a honda earlier you may have a point.
