Marc Marquez shrugs off crash to star in Sepang

Marc Marquez lived up to the pre-season hype in Sepang this week after the Spanish rookie shrugged off a final day crash to set the fourth fastest time. The reigning Moto2 world champion ended with a best time of 2.00.636 that put him just 0.094s behind Valentino Rossi in third and just over 0.5s adrift of teammate and pre-season favourite Dani...

The recklessness of an exuberant teenager - the first of many?   The boy is going to be a great champion tho' no doubt at all.

Recless exuberance ?

Hardly. Is supposed to piddle around in order to not find his and the bikes limitations ? He's employed to run as hard and fast as he can over the race distance. The fact that he lost it and thankfully walked away is a plus. The fact that he jumped on the 2nd bike, did a race simulation and stayed at the same pace is remarkable. Oh yeah,he stayed on,no problem,no recklessness,just bloody fast consistently.

Bootlicker93..?

A seamless swap of allegiance - almost as fast as the RCV transmission - which at least allows him to move on I suppose..

What happened to Ducati and Spies by the way?

No doubt he will be a

champion, but looks as though Honda are using him as stick to poke Dani this year. Going to be interesting to watch race control if the smiling assasin starts any of his Moto 2 nonsense...can't see HRC having their new prodigy at the back of the grid. Looking forward to see who blinks first when all the aliens arrive at turn 1 at the same time.....can't see MM backing off and Vale has proved in the past with Stoner at Laguna and Gibernau that he wont stand any nonsense...going to be a belter!

Seamless shift Wosi

Well sure I was going to root for Marquez.. Really. Did you for one minute believe that I would make a seamless shift to yellow. Outside of Marquez I can after 2 miserable years get back to rooting for Ducati ,Spies and Dovi.  Lost cause maybe at this stage. Anyway, I'm comfortable with it. Now if the powers that be would just chuck the Yamacati of 2011/12 in the dumpster where it belongs. Well. Have good one.

Oh yes,I've also seamlessly shifted to shout for Bradl and your countryman Smith.

So, to sum up,I don't see much chance of my picks winning races,much less challenging for the title this year.

However,I have to back at least one potential front runner and that is seamlessly #93. I've actually backed Marquez through RBR.125,Moto 2 and now. Seamless shift over the past several seasons for me re Marquez.

forever defending your fluro goat eh??

Spies was shameful on arguably the best bike. What do you expect he'd do on a challenging bike?? I wouldn'y say a "shit pig" mind you. Even Rossi managed a 2nd place on it!
