Video: Marc Marquez fastest again in Austin

Repsol Honda rider Marc Marquez stayed in charge of the private MotoGP test session at the Circuit of Americas in Texas yesterday after the Spaniard narrowly edged out teammate Dani Pedrosa on the second day. A best pace of 2.03.853 put Marquez 0.123s clear of compatriot Pedrosa on another day dominated by the all-Spanish Repsol Honda line-up. Marquez’s best time was almost...

I think if Stoner had spent less time impersonating a champion he could of done better in motogp generally.

Marquez and wet

Was it Estoril in 125 some time back and combined chaos ? He,like Stoner will probably excell when slippery. Elbow support slider/knee slider combo,target to target apex corner focus. Much the same style,Gabarini in the data mix,it shows.

LC Tanner ! Still rabbiting on about Stoner ? Have you not heard the news nor witnessed it you clown.

Freddie Spencer and Casey Stoner are part of MGP history and that's about it.

Marquez is the new big deal and deservedly so.

I stand corrected

    Bultoboy - Sorry,my error.I have only really followed Moto GP since 2003 & I do not reserch it.Thank you for putting me right on my mistake.I should have said that no rookie has recently won a championship in Moto GP or since 1978.I take my hat off to youre superior knoledge on this subject.

    Any way the point I was trying to make was the odds are staked statistically against Marc Marquez winning this year purely from a rookie perspective.He may win though as you say he could,Ben Spies won WSBK as a rookie so Marquez could beat the odds.

    I say the best of luck to him,hes not my 1st or 2nd favorite choice but if he can do it then fair play to the lad.As long as I get to see good racing then I dont really care who wins,may the best man win.

Put your hat back on..

MotoGP wasn't MotoGP in 1978..Kenny won the GP500 title first time out.

The top class of GP racing was rebranded 'MotoGP' in 2002..to allow for the 4T 990's.

Previously, if you wanted to race a 4T engine..it had to be 500cc. 2 strokes are banned from MotoGP.

You're right #99..Bulto's wrong, AGAIN.

Well spotted Bootlegger....

Re: LCTannner

We could ad Roberts to your equation of generation changing riders.

Roberts: Rear wheel steering and knee dragging (arguably the first but defo first to make duct tape sliders).

Spencer: Front wheel sliding (as a way to finish braking!!!) and rear braking to reduce wheel spin (old school ECU).

Stoner: First of the no fear gyro controlled robot riders.

MM: ??? I haven't figured it out yet but he is nuts, in a good way! ??? 

Can't wait for the flag to drop on 2013, .......... errrrr.......... lights to go out I mean? Showing my age!

Ciao Mama's!!!

stoner's impersonations

of a world champion were  rather convincing on 2 occasions LC, much more convincing than any attempts by you to be droll or witty of which I am aware .

Whatever Wosi

People generally refer to the 'big' class a Motogp now, which includes the old 500 days.

Impersonations ?

    Did Casey really impersonate a champion ? Which one & how ? Casey was a really champion,no need to impersonate & very much his own man.You could say that Jorge tryed to emulate Rossi at the start of his Moto GP career with the celebrations etc but Casey !

    Casey is a legend in his own right love him or loath him.Any way why do people always have to throw in an insult to Casey every bloody time even if the topic has nothing to do with Casey.
