Can be?

With the records he's set to date, he's well on his way, and arguably could be considered already.

The problem for the rest of us would be racers and accomplished champions is that none of us know if Marquez has actually had to wind the throttle back to the stops this year

It's just MCN

provoking some reaction !

Nostro - he's arguably the best 'rookie' ever but he's got to maintain that momentum for several seasons before he becomes the greatest ever.    So not quite already.

very obviously

he can be the best ever with 1 championship in his rookie year and 4 out of 4 race wins in the following year (Mastermind, special topic the bleeding obvious), but apart from relevance deficiency syndrome with which Kev appears to be afflicted I can see little point in Schwantz or anyone else saying so at this time. MM seems a rather good bet for 2 championships in a row. He needs 3 in a row to match KR for the first 3 years of a premier class career, which also seems entirely likely, then 4 or 5 more after that. 7 or 8 premier class championships is quite difficult according to one Mick Doohan who has 5 of the things, 4 more than Schwantz, so obviously as a Doohanfan I will go with Mick at this stage.


All credit , again obviously, to MM if he ends up with 7 or 8 in the modern era.

Already !!

Jesus, get a grip, he can't be considered the greatest already ( even arguably ) ... he needs to win a lot of titles yet and preferably, although not crucially, on more than one make of motorcycle before that could be considered ala Ago, Hailwood, Read, Lawson, Rossi, Stoner etc....

Risk

Riding at 10 tenths as he always does, will eventually catch him out, especially when he feels he is in total control and backs off just that tiny amount.

With the way he rides, any incident will be major and injury will be his eventual downfall, long before he makes multiple world championships in MotoGP.

Lets hope he does not become another Senna.
