We saw Doohan outclass both Creville and Gibernau.

With Yamaha, we saw Rossi outclass Ben Spies and Colin Edwards.

There must come a stage when these great riders are credited for their skills and ability
I certainly credit Marquez with being a great rider but if something happens to him you are done. I would not want to be in charge of the program or the team manager knowing that I was only capable of winning consistently with only one rider.
