Is Jack starting to use his head ??



When youíre fighting with two other guys on Ducatis Ö itís like going to a gunfight, but not being allowed to use your gun. I didnít want to do anything silly, so I tried to keep my nose clean as best I could. Youíre fighting your instincts, because the last thing you want to do is screw up another Ducati riderís race. I had a few opportunities to pass but I didnít take them, and I was kind of letting them make their mistakes and trying to benefit from them if they happened. They both ran wide at the first corner with three laps to go and I was able to sneak up to fourth for a few corners, but sixth in the end was what it was.

How good MM is makes you wonder

How good would he be on any other bike? I mean, could he even win on the KTM?

I reckon he could win on the Ducati (unlike Rossi).

I reckon he could win on the Suzuki or the Yamaha too. He's just that good. The guy feels traction like no-one else can. The guy can brake better than anyone else. That move into the first corner was what won that race for him.

If the others can get in and mix it up with him they have half a chance. They need to gang up on him. Pity Loz ain't out there on a Yamaha. His starts are what is needed to stop Marquez from getting into his rhythm.

We'd see his passing prowess then I suppose.

No doubt he is making sure the Factory contract comes to fruition. Make a the Money !! I am really hoping that once he has free reign, he can capitalise on the opportunity and really shine !!

They don't even mention him. I'm thinking he might get a Petronas Yamaha. He's a good rider and it'd be great for Malaysia. I know Quartpot is contracted for next year, but if Rossi keeps failing he might quit, or they'll sack him (that'd be a story) and give the seat to the Frenchie.
