Marquez on a Repsol Honda for 2013?

Rookie Rule out, Marquez in at Repsol Honda? | MotoGP News | Jun 2012 | Crash.Net



How do you guys feel about it? I feel like I understand it and accept it from a political standpoint, but I feel like there are plenty of higher caliber riders that deserve that ride more than Marquez does.


I'd also like to see Andrea Iannone on a 1000cc bike next year. His riding style reminds me of Simoncelli. Super aggressive and exciting to watch!

Re: Marquez on a Repsol Honda for 2013?

I feel like he has been consistent in moto2 and 125. He would defintely be my choice from the moto2 field. The fact that he is spanish and repsol being a spanish company he is pretty much a shoe in. As for the motogp field i think cal crutchlow would be a good candidate. Dont think id pick anyone over those two guys though. It will most likely be him or Bradl for sure though, maybe both. Pedrosa is CERTAINLY one of the fastest riders on the grid but hasn't been able to break the barrier into championship contender. Seems like he isn't aggressive enough at times. Just IMHO.

Just MotoGp being MotoGp! Changing the rules when it is convenient for them.

Dani doesnt have that killer instinct. He'll always be that 2nd/3rd place guy thats there to pick up the scraps. I highly doubt he'll ever see a championship. I'm wondering how many more years Honda/Repsol will keep him around before they realize it's not gonna happen with him.

Cal is the fuckin man!! Especially since he got the honey badger on the back of his leathers, that was some funny shit I'd love to see Cal on a factory bike.

If Spies doesn't turn things around quickly, that's exactly what'll happen.

Re: Marquez on a Repsol Honda for 2013?

Everyone in Spain puts Marquez on Stoner's seat, but Dorna's president said that he does not want more spanish riders at top since he has to sell the championship abroad.
It is going to be difficult this season, there are a lot of riders that are performing well to get a good bike, but if the CRT bussines does not get any better there are only three brands to choose and it might be ending only two if Ducati can not follow...

Re: Marquez on a Repsol Honda for 2013?

Does anybody else only see 12 bikes on the grid? I honestly have no interest in the CRT bikes simply because they're so far off pace. Just a bunch of back markers.
