Next, this test peeled back more of the veneer covering the massive talent of Marc Marquez. [His ability to get up to speed at the previous two tests at Sepang in Malaysia was impressive, but considering he is still learning his way around Honda's RC213V, this display at COTA was a show of genius. Marquez admitted that he thinks the Austin circuit suits his bike, saying, "I think it's a good track for Honda, because it has many accelerations, and this may be the strongest part of my bike." But remember, too, that he was faster than Pedrosa and Bradl who are also on factory Honda equipment. Marquez's true colors will only come to light in the heat of competition, where fitness, racecraft, and pressure will make things more difficult. However, he told MC that he is confident about fitness and explained in depth his understanding of how racing a MotoGP bike is different than the 'twist-and-go' frenetic style of Moto2. Deep maturity for a man of only 20 years.
