Valencia MotoGP: Marquez takes historic MotoGP title

Marc Marquez has made history in Valencia today by becoming the youngest ever MotoGP world champion in his rookie season. Marquez only had to finish fourth to secure the championship, and after an incident-packed race crossed the line in third place to take the crown from race winner Jorge Lorenzo. Lorenzo had a good battle with Dani Pedrosa in second, the pair...

A deserved championship for Marc..

 ..but inspired race from Lorenzo today. He rode the wheels off that thing and did everything in his power to bring the championship home with a superb tactical ride. The truth is Marquez has just had too much for him over the season and has had luck on his side. I personally think Jorge is the best rider out there, but what Marc has achieved is nothing short of remarkable. It was a shame no.99 didn't have the support of his team mate to help him out today, but that's another story for another day..

 

I also doff my cap to Pedrosa today - Jorge mugged him and to Dani's credit he hasn't whinged or moaned about it, rather than say it was 'fun' racing and enjoyed being a part of it. He's a class act.

 Lorenzo did a brillaint job of slowing the pace at the front but Rossi still couldn't keep up. Always been a huge Val fan, but become lad, gonna take more than a fresh crew chief now.

Exactly What I was thinking

 Lorenzo was going as slowly as he could But Rossi either couldn't or wouldn't put the two hondas under pressure. Some help he was. As you say he'll need more than a new chief to catch the top three next year. Crutch slow was no better although at least be tried before falling off. Once J Lo realised he wasn't getting any help he decided to go for the win and keep his dignity.

A well deserved championship for Marc.

I won't be one of the15

 Not a BT customer. Hate football so won't be paying £144 to watch the races next year.  Preferred the Euro sport coverage only because BBC spent millions of public money getting exclusive rights to the live races then didn't bother showing all of them if there was tennis or snooker on.  Farewell motogp

 Won't be much to watch in 2014 anyway. Lorenzo and MM will take it to another level and it will be a battle for third. Rossi won't last the season as he and his new crew chief get their asses handed to them.

Memorable season

Marc to the surprise of many has been Cool Hand Luke all season long and well deserved rookie champion. Had to feel for George though. Exemplary title defence marred by a little misfortune. This one reminded me of Sete vs Rossi many years back at PI. Naught George could do about it. No one quick enough to help him out. Marc is certainly not one to crack under pressure and throw away a solid championship lead. Another great performance by Dani. The first 10 laps were cracking.
