So going into Aragon, Marquez is leading by 43 points, although his last few races haven't been what they should have. Rossi has cut into his lead a little, so it looks like a two-horse race.

I think Marquez has learned his lessons over the past two seasons, and no longer has the "Win it or bin it" mentality, which should help out.

So who do you think will win the title this season?

Marquez will win... He is hard to beat, with such advantage i think it is too difficult for Rossi to overcome... Lorenzo is out... Rossi is stronger than him this year... I'm huge Lorenzo fan, but these last couple years Rossi is making me cheer for him too... Never thought he could fight with Lorenzo and Marquez when he was moving back to Yamaha...

125 potential points left to grab. 43 point lead. Rossi is going to have to win most to even have any chance. Even if Rossi were to win outright the championship is not is not fully in his control. Marquez and other will have to "help" out. Stranger things have happened but I see maturity in Marquez this year. I cannot see him throwing it away.

Marquez would have to crash out of 2 races with rossi finishing first to even things up...marquez has been on fire this year and a joy to watch while lorenzo has struggled.

Marquez has shown great maturity. Rossi has to be on point to get close, and I would not be surprised if it came down to last round. But with the amount of winners this season, it really could be exciting.

P.s. Lorenzo is a bitch and his true colors have shown this season

although Rossi is faster than Marquez overall this year,this only happens when he doesn't fall. :D :lol:
so yeah Marquez.
Where the hell are you getting this from? Look at the lap times and pole positions. Marc is way faster than Rossi.

I'm talking about race results this year. WHEN Rossi doesn't hit the ground or blows an engine he finishes higher than Mark. As far as pole positions Mark is already in front of Rossi and Jorge and he has many more years left!

I was just talking about race results this year when Rossi does not have dnf. I just wanted to point out that his performance this year is better than previous 5-6 years.
:cheers:

I only got to see the last 5 laps so not much to comment on the race, but as far as the championship goes, Marquez will win.

Sorry for the lack of "spoiler alert" and miswriting Maverick Vinales number, he is 25...

Does your bike brand biases the rider you cheer for? I mean... I'm a big Lorenzo fan since 2008... Since then i've watched every single race, most of them live, a few, for major issues, after a few hours on my DVR (Some years i subscribed to video pass)... Since i got the Suzuki i'm cheering for MV25 as my second favorite rider... Well, next year there will many changes in the teams, MV25 is moving to Yamaha and i'm pretty sure the riders i will cheer for will be Jorge and Rins (He was my second moto2 rider after Luis Salom, RIP, and now he will be moving up to Suzuki)...

Nah, I don't care about bike brand. I have riders that I like, be it their riding style, talent, or persona.

Rossi's DNFs have not helped. If MM has a couple that may really even up the championship.

Pole positions are not everything. You can set up for a one lap wonder, but have a race set-up that is overall slower.

The great surprise was Vinales and the GSX-RR. That thing is as fast as the Honda now. But you could see later he couldn't get the front to turn, or was it over-steer from a poor rear running him wide?

EDIT: Rossi almost won it last year except for his stupid brain fart when MM was dicing with him.
