All the more remarkable, He is as fast or faster than Marquez and hasn't had a single crash in testing, qualy or racing on the big machines. And on a machine that is clearly slower, although getting closer to the Hondas and Ducatis.

2000 F4 750

Nigel I cant see your point, but Glenno is correct.Honda publicly stated that they expect Marquez to leave because to be considered a GOAT the new requirement is to win a MOTOGP title on 2 different manufacturers. Read this on GPone motomatters crashnet and even the announcers at Spanish MotoGP stated honda expects Marquez to leave. Honda also said they are developing the RC213V for average riding style NOT Marquez unique style so when he leaves they are not in a lurch. IF I was marquez father I would go strait to Ducati if I heard Honda was developing bike for other riders .

I think Marquez will want the challenge of going for another manufacturer, very few have managed to conquer multiple manufacturers. Look how it went for both Lorenzo and Rossi at Ducati.

I don't think Marc will go to Ducati for the challenge though, he will go because of the money.

I think Suzuki & KTM could be the ones to watch, they are looking more competitive, whether they can afford him might be another matter.

Guess we'll have to put a sticky on this thread and re-visit it at the end of 2020 when MM's contract with Honda expires.

How was Jack Miller in that race!!! I never thought I'd be jumping cheering for him, but I did. Pity he cant keep the pace over distance, but seeing him overtake Marquez was definitely the highlight of that race.

If Marquez goes to Ducati I might start cheering for him. Never liked him when he was on Moto2 or at the start of his MotoGP career, especially in 2015. I definitely respect his riding style and recently his attitude and absolute professionalism at his craft.

Feel bad for Lorenzo, the pressure must be getting to him.

Ah, thanks for that. I've just put you back on my Christmas card list.

There is certainly merit in chasing the wins on various manufacturers records. Whilst I guess we're all voicing our deepest thoughts, MM's final decision will, either way, be interesting.

I remember how I felt when I watched Rossi win his first race with Yamaha. That would have been nothing to how Rossi and his new team would have felt. An outstanding achievement. I know Stoner did it, but cannot recall whether or not it was from the first race on the new marque.

Nigel apparently Marquez has been talking about moving to another manufacturer but not saying who or when . Marquez has been flat out riding the competition. He knows the Ducatis are the best bike on the grid. Marquez knows this so I would bet he goes to Ducati unless KTM defies chassis engineers and makes that steel trellis chassis work with 270hp and the KTM RC16 gets an additional 20hp.


BTW anyone know Quartarara weight? he looks too heavy to reach Alien status . .. I have seen bigger riders pull off blistering lap times before but couldn't ride 110% all the time and ended up being a rider that crashes often . Crutchlow id a good example

Quartararo Weight: 66 Kg
Height: 177 cm


So no problems there Jake.
