My gut reaction to what you are saying is ...... you are not right.


But really after quite bit more thoughtful consideration
, research and taking into account what you have said, I must conclude that ... you are incorrect,

HRC don't care which rider wins the championship as long as they ride for HRC.

HRC cant still hold the mindset that its 80% bike 20% rider.....especially after seeing what MM can do vs every other HRC rider.....

No they can't. They don't care as long as they are winning riders, constructors and team titles. If someone came better than Marquez he will become the backup just as quick as he became the alpha dog. HRC are ruthless.
They will always believe that the likes of Marquez can't do what he does without the engineering prowess behind him, and they are mostly right.

There would be no elbow saves from a low side on an NSR500 or RC211V.

Based on the fact that no traction control system from that era was sophisticated enough to keep the rear right side up when one is at 60 degrees lean angle, saving the front and opening the throttle to shift the weight to the rear.

I'm fairly certain Marquez didn't develop that tech.
