Marc Marquez curious to see Aleix Espargaro on Factory bike

Reigning MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez reckons it would be interesting to see Aleix Espargaro’s performance potential if the Spaniard managed to secure a Factory ride in the future. Espargaro has caught the eye in 2014 with a series of impressive performances for Forward Racing, riding Yamaha’s Open class YZR-M1 project. He has finished in the top six four times and claimed...

Suzuki

 Seems to be the only option left for Espagaro Snr, not a great signing but the best of a bad bunch that are left free in the motogp class. I think Vinales is a great signing for them though, they look serious about being competitve again and i am really hoping thats how it turns out.

 Proddie racing hondas are going to be dumb downed RCV213V (no seamless box) then will yamaha just give this years Terch 3 bike to Forward to even out the playing field, if they do then it might pay to stay at Forward.

Indeed Alex

 I'm not sure he is right for Suzuki anyway, and he would probably be getting more consistant results at Forward. Surely Suzuki must still be trying to tempt Jorge away from Yamaha? Now that all the other big four are tied up he has got to be their number one?

Bradl?

 Interesting, could be a good ride for him, not sure what he has to offer in terms of development though. I thought they were more likely to have Vinales as the up and coming rider and then get in someone with some development experience.

Development?

A much over hyped concept. Riders convey feeling from feet, hands and arse to their chief engineer - that's it, with very rare exception (i.e Scott Smart) do they turn a new fu-fu valve on a lathe. Telemetry backs up rider sensation or otherwise. Engineers interpret that information and endeavour to translate that in to working metal or bytes.

It's hardly rocket science from a riders perspective. What you don't want though is riders whinging as they turn a machine inside out and still can't get it to perform (see the CEII), or riders dismissing new bits before there potential is fully appriased (see the Terrapin at Corse).

As said before a Suzuki is about what Espargaro senior deserves from a factory ride perspective, anything else would've been above his station.

Marky is looking for someone who he can race with.  It's lonely at the top.  That he said this about AE speaks volumes of his respect for a rider of his own generation.  We need to start looking at new blood to find the man who will dethrone King Marquez.  No one else can hold a candle to him.

Yeah that's right, all those parts Gobsheiter said needed to be re-evaluated, yet they had one test and changed nothing.

No, the biggest faux pas by any rider, ever, was Stoner rejecting that lovely new RCV that took Dani to 6 wins out of 8, and some young buck called Marquez to the title in his debut season.
