Interesting to see how couple of rookies will adapt. Firstly, Marquez will be awesome at some point, but might suffer early on. In Moto2, he used to test Suter bike privately time and time again. Probably did more laps than any other rider in the class. Now MotoGP tests are limited and he need to learn new powerful bike, complicated electronics and weird Bridgestones. And set them up too. Granted he has professional team and staff behind him but he is facing experienced riders with many years on the bikes and tires.

Iannone is the Ducati rider to watch. Might be the surprise of the season. He doesn't have knowledge how to ride Japanese MotoGP bikes, therefore he doesn't have to de-learn his old habits and can get to the point with Ducati and adjust to bike's style.

Last chance for Pedrosa to win the title? 2014 onwards Marquez can be hard to beat, at least on the same bike
Okay, I will be arrest.
