I think the red mist days are gone, he's really grown up this year.

I don't know if quail is all that indicative of race results. How many races has he won against MM when starting from third or fourth. OTOH - Marquez is extra motivated to win at Honda's own personal test track. Gotta say - Dovi looked really relaxed and confident in parc ferme.

He has matured a lot but there is always an "Argentina" possible. I'm wondering if his team will "cut the rope" as they did in 2016 if he manages to secure the title this weekend. It didn't work out so well next race, so hopefully not. Then again, it's usually when Marquez is at his most entertaining.

They certainly shouldn't, as it will make Honda then look a bit Rossiesque and who wants that!

How's that mirror view on Rossi's bike work? They are projecting the rear view footage somehow? Not a mirror as all you'd see is the camera.

That is white man magic.

He's the best ever. No doubt about it IMO. The records will likely come, he's dominating in an era where the series has set up the rules to stop domination.
