Marc Marquez on being the 3rd fastest rider in MotoGP

Dailies -



Pictured is the right elbow of Marc Marquez’s Alpinestars TechAir suit following the first MotoGP practice at Sepang. Marc didn’t crash, but he did lap just 0.044 seconds slower than teammate Dani Pedrosa and 0.383 seconds faster than Valentino Rossi. This will be the Spaniard’s debut MotoGP season.

    This guy, he will probably be fast this year. Probably.

  • Gabriel Torres

    With Factory Honda support. I think Marquez can finish the season in the top-3 if he is able to limit his mistakes. Could easily be an all Spaniard Top-3 with Stoner now gone.

    Rawr, draggin’ elbows.

  • Ganesh Bell

    awesome.. 2013 will be awesome with healthy confident Dani, perfection & grit of Jorge, rejuvenated Rossi, and now raw and scary fast Marquez

  • Scott Sweeney

    I already like him better than Jorge. Let’s see where this goes!

  • Damo Von Maciel

    Very excited to see him race this season. MotoGP should be a whole lot more interesting this season!

    (Though I am still looking forward to WSBK more,,,ssshhh don’t tell anyone!)

      Me too, I’ve already put all my money on Melandri ;) (I did the same last year, but Max screwed it for me :P and i guess Johnny Rea had his finger on Melandri’s chances in donington)

        The way Sykes rode that green machine, I would not be surprised if he wins the title for 2013. He lost the title by only half a point last year.

    All I will say is that I hope Marquez leaves his questionable moves behind him in Moto2. Looking forward to the 2013 season kicking off in Qatar…

  • Eddie Smith

    Finally I learn to get my knee down, now I gotta go for the elbow? Damn… This kid is going to school Jorge

  • Hooligan

    Still not going to get around the problem of a diminished grid in MotoGP.

    But shall see if it is any more interesting this year, or any less boring. The only fun was seeing how badly Rossi was doing. I hope Cal Crutchlow gets more podiums.

    And as for the Moto2 …..
    WSB is more fun. BSB is even more fun! I would love to see Rossi trying to ride the tight gnarly tracks like Cadwell Park.

    I dunno about Marquez…. He’s gonna get many riders injured, he’s overly aggressive.
