A genius rider for sure, but I can't say I warm to the guy - maybe it's that Spanish mafia in the background that we all saw emerge after the Rossi tow me round 'incident' a few years back at Motegi.
It's strange how he has become the only rider to find the sweet spot with that Honda. Lorenzo hates the thing & Crutchlow blows hot & cold, maybe guilty of over-riding. Still, some of the old guard need to retire & let the young guns have a crack at Marquez, on full works machinery.
We should get a flavour of 2020 at the post race test sessions at Valencia, weather permitting.
