Arrow Marc Marquez versus Casey Stoner

Marc Marquez and Casey Stoner are lined up on the same grid... Who do you think would win and why?

I'm going for Marc. He has been impeccable this year. I think his youth and skill would win. He is a little Rossi, who is not against a sneaky move and has the talent to pull them off. Whilst Stoner is obviously an incredibly talented rider ~ to be able to tame that Duc showed that. But, I just think being a father is in his subconscious now and I think Marc would have the edge on him.

Marc Marquez no doubt. Don't get me wrong, what Casey Stoner achieved on the Duc was nothing short of genius and the way he rode was just spectacular. Problem is Marc Marquez is just as amazing but with the benefit of loving a good old fight, he relishes and thrives in it. Casey Stoner on the other hand, always got flustered when pushed. Marquez has no weaknesses, the same cannot be said of Stoner. I think if Stoner was on the Honda next season, Marquez would fight with him, once or twice and then Stoner would break... back to his Adrianas loving arms...

speed-wise I think they're equal, maybe giving Stoner a slight edge. as far as adaptability to contemporary electronics in the Honda goes, I think MM might beat him if both were on 2014 bikes. as far as handling PR, media, etc. is concerned, the winner is more easy to pick.

MM without question....

MM is more mentally prepared to fight and enjoys racing....Casey could fight but it became clearer and clearer he didnt enjoy racing toward the end of his career....

Reminds me of MotoGP Laguna from last year. The shortest way around a corner is straight through it... Marquez overtaking Rossi at Laguna Seca.

I believe his strongest point is not getting frustrated easily, while this was Casey's biggest weakness, at least in the latter part of his career.

Thank you duc ~ Love that! Which is why I say Marc is a little Rossi because that's exactly what Rossi did to Stoner at Laguna in 2008 (same corner?). Then Stoner dropped it ~ under pressure (agree with fellow posters). I don't think Marc would do that. Would be exciting to see them both on the grid thou.

Marquez for sure. Doubt Marquez would beat him at Phillip Island, but other than that the kid has everyone covered. Wonder if he could tame the Duc though?

The Casey of before not the retired fisherman now, across a championship it would be tight, but i will pick Stoner. even if just to disagree with all of you
