Point is, declaring Marquez 2014 champion is like predicting the weather 2 months from now. Obviously, he's ready to graduate to MotoGP. Aside from that, who knows?
Sure things that didn't turn out that way:
Pedrosa too small to ride a 990 race distance.
Honda's 800 would pick up where the 990 left off.
Stoner would destroy dozens of Ducatis in 2007.
Rossi and Burgess would turn Ducati around.
