We would once have said, 'Not a problem. At Assen Rossi can do anything.'
But no longer. As you rightfully say, he is now outclassed by others on essentially the same bike.
A bit of a shame in a way for the many of us who have followed him since 125s.

Also agree. I'd tipped him to be top rookie last year, but he let me down big time. Really making headway now, and being Japanese, it would not take much thought at the moment to see him with a 'proper' factory ride in the next one or two years. (*waits for @[email protected] to chip in*)

Even I wouldn't be game to put money on Marquez tomorrow.
