Not to take away from what Rossi has achieved. I actually don't like Rossi (from what I've seen), but he's done incredible and isn't far off now... If the yami was better he'd still be getting wins I'm sure, but Marquez is unbelievable

His saves alone are superhuman. Honda are lucky to have him cosi reckon he would be smashing it on almost any of the top bikes,

Absolutely. Seems a huge tragedy that we never saw Marquez and Stoner racing a season. I'm not sure Stoner was as good at fighting as Marquez (not saying Stoner couldn't find, just Marquez is a master at it), but my God they can both make a bike do extraordinary things

How to you think Jonny Rea would do in MotoGP on competitive bike?

I wish he would step up so we can find out, JR is a bit old now though. We’ve got a few cross class moves for next year to contemplate. Do we know where Cal is going yet ?

Cal is staying put I believe?

Redding going to BSB (!!) and Bautista to WSBK will both be interesting

Difficult to compare Rossi and Marquez for me.
Rossi won for five consecutive years on different machinery including the 500cc 2 stroke era.
Marquez can ride the current bike better than anyone, however with all the electronics they are a different beast. He will definitely move manufacturer in the next few years i think. If he can go to suzuki or ktm and win then i will see him as probably the best. Ducati is capable of winning a championship so not the same challenge as the yamaha was in 2004.
If he plays it safe with honda then he is not as far as I’m concerned.

I think Rossi is the man, 10 championship takes the GOAT accolade and with Marquez being still so young I think he’s gonna have him. I’m really looking forward to Jake Dixon in Moto2.
