If he´s smart, he won´t read that crap, though....
Marquez has never seemed anything other than serene. I don't believe he even understands what pressure is. Look at the way he blasted his way to the front of the race, not once, but twice this season. That takes a lot of things, but most of all, it takes calmness and focus, an ability not to get distracted by anything other than the task at hand. Marquez has that in spades.
