Marc Marquez becomes youngest ever MotoGP winner

The first MotoGP from the Circuit Of The Americas [COTA] opened with 20 year old Marc Marquez attempting to be the Youngest ever premier class winner - challenging the record of Freddie Spencer set in 1981. The young Spaniard got off to a slow start however and it was his team-mate Dani Pedrosa who took the jump at the lights, entering into the...

Well...

Amazing race from Marquez... good on Cal for a solid ride to 4th ahead of his main Honda rival... oh... & a long way in front of a  factory Yam... respect to JL for acknowledging Cal's performance before anything else in his interview... & Dovi deserves a mention for running consistently through the race.

Stunning

What a stunning ride from Marquez.In all honesty I thought he would make more mistakes but apart from the h/side in practice you cannot fault the guy in any way.
Brilliant ride from Crutchlow on a second rate bike (ahem) and even although he still made an error he made a great recovery to take a well deserved fourth.
Also Lorenzo did the best he could on a track where the Honda's had it in the bag.
Now the interesting part of the season will begin to unfold and I think we are in for a very entertaining season.

Yep, a top race.

Marc was brilliant, even though I thought Dani would have took him in the last few laps, but I guess Marc knew that too and put the hammer down leading Dani into a slight mistake. Cal was fantastic and hopefully will be rewarded with a factory ride in '14. Surprised with Vale's performance today, thought he'd really be in it after his result in the last race. Hey Ho. Dovi ride well and that bike is looking very good. Second half of the year and it maybe a podium contender....?!

In total agreement about Marquez though..

..Lorenzo summed it up pretty succinctly when he referred to him in his post race interview as a "phenomenon" - you can't argue with that. The game has just moved on...

Marquez's incredible performance apart  I thought the race was boring!     Strung out ... the only action was Cal running off track and making an amazing recovery.   As for a factory ride in 2014  ... what on ?  Yamaha aren't about to let Jorge go and Rossi has a contract till 2015.  Would Honda sack Dani for Cal ... I doubt it ... that leaves Ducati or the returning Suzuki.  Suzuki is unknown and Ducati can only get better so if Ducati drop 1 of their 4 riders then maybe that seat would become available.     Anyone got any other ideas ?

congratulations

To Marquez ,stunning ride from the chosen one, love his happy, confident and in some ways modest manner, a real star and the rest of the field should be very afraid. But wait, King Jorge showed his metal, he hung on the tail on the two hondas and limited the damage to his title challenge, not one who will ever be fazed by Marquez. Not everyones favorite but what a ride by Crutchlow, yes he may talk the talk, but he's walking the walk this year. Time to back him guys and dont be so pissy. Lastly , cool dovi....enough said...

Saturn...

He could be offered the LCR if Bradl doesn't start getting on the podium? That's a HRC Factory machine.
