 Lorenzo remained calm and didn't up his game and thought that mm would make more mistakes than he did and didn't take him seriously enough until the damage was done. When it was too late, we saw a different Lorenzo, going for it, and more aggressive brilliant to watch. Had Lorenzo not got injured....had he been more aggressive earlier in the championship I think we would have seen a different champion this year.  

Lorenzo will be out the starting blocks next year riding with guns on both sides, I don't see mm winning again.

As for dominating moto gp for years, that will depend on what a certain Aussie wants to do

Not entirely fair Mr. Number

Lorenzo had his mumbo on well and truly at Assen - he wanted to crush them there. But a degree of over cofidence saw him pay a big price for being fractionally off line in practice. His second collarbone injury at the Sachsenring was the killer blow though. I think the jury is out on whether this highside was rider error, or a machine / programming error letting too many horses loose for that corner.

Marquez could dominate MotoGP

He definietly had a wonderful year, as the saying goes- all the dice rolled the best way for him. He certainly had some good luck as well as his excellent riding. I hope he doesn't dominate though -other MotoGp will be as boring as potentially F1 is/will be with Vettel. In which case BT has done us all a favour!  Jorge did his best with his Yamaha, and will probaly continue to do so; it is the other riders that are a let down. I think Dani, like VR is past his best; lets hope Pol E.;  Bradley and eventually Scott can up their game.

Now that everyone knows how hard they have to ride to even match Marquez, how good is 2014 going to be? I genuinely believe it will be an all-time-great historic battle. The future is looking bright.

The future is looking bright . the future to me is looking BT which is bad news for MOTOGP and alot of MOTOGP viewers including me who cant afford the subscription. Look whats happened to WSB  British world champions in WSB and WSS and yet siverstone only managed a crowd of just over 20,000. This is because it can only be watched on SKY. Its a visous circle when sport goes to subscription. Their are less viewers. which means less sponsors less spectators at races which means less money for every one.

The reason MOTOGP has gained in popularity over the last few years is BBC showing it to the masses. But it will now become a minority sport which most people unfortunatly wont be interested in

BT

 It is one thing saying you can't afford BT subscription and another saying you don't want to pay out for another subscription. Over the course of the year you are talking about one less beer everytime you go down the pub, couple of less times going out for a meal, etc etc etc. If you definately wanted to see the Motogp, then you would make provisions to do so.   Yes, it is a right pain that you now have to pay for the privilege to watch it, but please cut out the 'can't afford it'.
