Marquez to hit double digits in wins for 2018 to cap off to me his best season to date. Rider title in dominant fashion, team championship virtually by himself, constructors title with very little help, M award in dominant fashion, all on the second best bike.

Someone said Ducati is the best bike and everyone believes?

It’s a general consensus throughout the paddock that the Duc is the best bike on the grid. I think Dovi himself said it, Marquez, Rossi, Vinales have as well.

So, ask yourself: Who doesn't agree that Marquez is by far the most talented rider in the paddock? Why hasn't Pedrosa on the same Honda hasn't been within spitting distance of the podium all season? Why has Marquez been beaten multiple times by older riders on the Ducati? How many other riders won races on a Honda this year? If it quacks like a Duc and walks like a Duc . . .

For some it beggars belief that the absurdly wonky and idiosyncratic 2006 era Ducati has morphed into the refined world beater of 2018.

Fact is; Marquez took the championship largely through sheer talent. No other Honda rider came close.

The Michelin spec tyres have become increasingly difficult for Dani to heat up. Look at Cal - he's been crushing Dani, even though he never came close in any other years.

Cal. Had a few podiums too.

The Ducati is the best bike on the grid. Look at Bautista at PI. Dovi has never been anywhere near this strong on any other bike.

Gigi is awesome. As soon as he left, Aprilia went down the toilet. The first ground-up new Ducati was the GP15, and Dovi narrowly finished second in his first race with it.
