‘WE ARE SEEING A NEW MARC’
Òthereõs no doubt that Marc is a title contender, but this is a different rider we are seeing right now. The inclement weather in Argentina showed us that heõs learned to be careful.
ÒI donõt remember him being quite as loose or as free as he always is, especially in the front half of the race. You always have to count the 93 and the Repsol Honda as title contenders.
Òthe thing is, with so many new combinations of tyre being thrown at the team, even with new tyres in Austin on Friday and on Saturday, itõll be a year where itõs easy to have a Rossi moment and give away 25 points. Everyone had better keep working and pushing and trying to develop those tyres - and the next 15 races are all going to be really exciting!
Òthe Suzukis are getting closer
