An interesting aspect of MotoGP bike development and riding styles:

Is Marquez just so good that he can ride any bike or is it a case of Honda developing the RCV to fit Marc's very aggressive riding style? Probably both.

At any rate, it is interesting to read HRC technical manager Takeo Yokoyama say: "So the three [factory] riders - Marc, Jorge and Cal - we are working for all of them, of course. It doesn't happen so often that all of them say completely opposite or different directions or requests. But in case that happens, of course, our priority is Marc. Because Marc is a champion, he can give us the best feedback let's say and the first priority is to win the title, with Marc."
