He's not as fast as Pedrosa over the length of a race (so far this season). We agree.

According to tweets, Pedrosa did 9 laps on the 2014 bike and decided there wasn't enough difference to start using it at Assen, and called it a test. Marquez is going to stay another day for more...

How do you define "faster"? Since neither Pedrosa nor Marquez have been taken out by other riders, the standings speak for themselves.

Looked to me like he was doing that even at the end, and I'd guess it's because of the way the Honda has to be ridden. The Yamaha can get on the gas earlier and take a more sweeping exit, but the...

"Yes he will, no he won't" gets boring. $20 to the charity* of your choice if Rossi retires before the end of 2014. If you reciprocate, great; if not, whatevs.

It's only been five rounds.

That said, he's run into the back of his teammate during practice and hit another rider hard, possibly intentionally. Minor things, but things nonetheless.
