MM is in a league of his own.
From another galaxy I think.
I think he'll end up as the best of all time.
And this year's tally is on a bike that no one else can get times out of.
What will be interesting to see is how long MM keeps at it.
I would not be surprised to see him migrate to F1 inside of the next 5 years or so.

As much as I agree that Marquez is a ridiculous talent, comparing his current numbers to Rossi's current numbers isn't really fair. If you compare their first 125 races, Rossi comes out on top in almost every category. You can definitely make the argument that Rossi had more advantages and less competition when he started out, but I think comparing his end of career numbers to Marquez's peak numbers is a bit misleading.

All that being said, I'm really excited to see how Quatararo does next year, but I would bet barring an injury it'll be the Marquez show for the next handful of years.

That is why those stats are only for MotoGP class. It is all apples to apples. No 500's, 250's or 125's in the mix




Rossi's best years stopped as soon as the new tire rules didn't allow a special tire to be custom made just for him the day before the race and flown into the track. Once his special treatment from Michelin came to an end so did his dominance. A great racer no doubt, but when the deck is stacked for one racer and one racer only both by the tire manufacturer and the factory building the bike then that is what really gives a misleading representation.

I feel the same about Quatararo, he sure looks like the real deal so far.
As for MM, what blows my mind are the insane saves he alone is capable of, and the present time wins he repeatedly gets on a bike that frankly, no one else can even come close to mastering.
