Honda expects fierce but friendly fight between Pedrosa and Marquez

Honda is confident that the good relationship that exists between Dani Pedrosa and rookie Marc Marquez will not be soured by any potential battles on track in the 2013 MotoGP world championship. The Spanish duo are both being hotly tipped to battle for the title in MotoGP this year, which will inevitably mean they will engage in some strong battles on...

I can't wait to see MM go at it in Moto Gp. The kids ridding style is amazing. Sure Marquez will have some huge crashes, but i reckon he can take at least 4 victories. High hopes for my favorite rider Ianone as well, crazy Joe might well be top Duc rider. Stefan Bradl on a factory bike, Cal on form, Valentino on a propper bike? Should be a great season for all us race fans! Still i reckon Dani will take the title, after all the little dude knows it's his last chance.

Short freindship

I also predict a short friendship, first time Marquez punts Dani in the gravel and refuses to accept he did anything wrong friendship will be over. The little shit is arrogant and dangerous and needs to be dealt with harshly next time he pulls a dodgy move. He could have killed Espargaro last year yet seems to think he did nothing wrong.

Very Dodgy rider.

In other words

Honda have had a word with Marquez not to go and upset the apple cart and that he is number 2 there. To which he will hopefully think whatever.

Yes Alex

All very well. Tough riding is one thing but what he did to Luhti at Qatar last year should have been dealt with immediately. He had just about done enough to pass him, maybe, but then just moved over on him and pushed him to the side of the track. It was deliberate and unacceptable at any speed never mind 150mph or whatever it was. Luhti had to back off or have a monumental accident. If Marquez had conducted that move fairly, he may not actually have taken Luhti into the corner.

That's not fair racing and displays a win at all cost attitude and that sort of attitude can seriously injure someone. Coming from dirtbikes, I've no problem with elbows in the chest and all that, but it's a fine line between leaning on someone and pushing them off track.

No? I thought not. You'd rather just whinge about others. Must be English eh?"
 

 

I just couldn't miss this one. A guy that has spewed reams and reams of bile and resentment towards Valentino Rossi on this site alone, and god knows how much more bitterness elsewhere, has the mis-guided arrogance to tell others to stop having a whinge. Beautiful.

That chip just keeps on growing...

Id say your absolutely right...it sounds like honda has said" this is dani's year...just be calm and learn. You can go for wins this year, but not the title. Next year go for gold son!" It does make sense as the honda boss has also said he expects dani to win this year or not at all. Marquez will be in the mix, but honda doesnt want him taking dani out while he is a rookie...the lesson of 06 has not been forgotten....

Stick to the dirt

... and grow-up Bulto you big Mary. This is real racing. Luthi knew that MM was coming from the pitboards that he had just passed, the blue flags being waved and the sound of the bike immediately behind him. He knew what was happening and where the pass was coming. He had a choice - defend or concede. He chose to defend and paid the price of being on the outside racing line, but slow into the corner. Watch how Iannone deals with the same moves by MM in the same corner of the same race and maybe you'll understand.  MM took him cleanly and without contact. Race Direction agrees with this assessment hence no penalty. Get over it and move on or stick to your low-speed mud-pluggers.
