Did you catch the Edwards bike swap? It looked like he was gonna stop and have a smoke

I remember watching Marc practice the bike-to-bike hop last year.

Faaack. Said Rossi.

MM looks like the seasoned veteran,Rossi the rookie.

Tough to admit for this diehard Rossi fan.

In the dry I’m confident and not afraid of crashing but when it’s spitting maybe I have the memory of last year and I didn't have things clear in my mind. In future if something happens like this I hope to be more confident and less scared of crashing.
He needs to do something because its starting to look like if he can't be in the front, he's going to sulk in the back of the car all the way home.

exactly.

Ultimately it was mostly the weather, that messed things up both in qualifying and in the race.... but it is the same for everyone, and I find it just bizarre, that our 9 times world champ is making stupid mistakes left and right, while the guy, who is 21 years of age, and has 1 and a half seasons in MotoGP (as opposed to Rossi΄s 14 and a half), doesn΄t really put a foot wrong in extremely challenging track conditions, and just gets the job done.

somehow that bike swap thing tells a lot about Marquez vs. others - yeah ok just donate him a few extra tenths right there, why even bother to try cos we can΄t beat him anyway......

I figure Vale has little to lose. 2nd place in the Championship is relatively meaningless. Beating the new king, heads up, a few times before calling it a day is meaningful.

From where I sit, it is impressive Vale still has anything left to even try to beat Marquez.

But today's race is an anomaly. Other than Marquez's invincibility, the rest means very little due to the conditions. Was more like a circus than a race with all the bike changing.

I have just finished watching the race.

It is amazing to think that MM is just three points away from having a three race advantage just eight races into the season. It certainly could be that way after the next round and quite timely before the summer break.

And shows the level of attention to detail he has.

I do not want to play the role of the devil's advocate, but to me it seems that this race just underlined the fact that Yamaha's team is somehow a little step back of Honda's.
I mean that it is Yamaha that is trying to keep Honda's pace, and it is not just Marquez against Rossi or Lorenzo. It is Marquez and his HRC team against Rossi and Lorenzo's Yamaha team.
