The 2013 Moto GP season is soon to begin, and the debut of Marc Marquez is hotly anticipated by all who hold interest in grand prix motorcycle racing. Marquez has shown impressive pace in the 2013 preseason tests, but one cannot directly compare him to people like Lorenzo, Rossi, and Pedrosa until the racing begins.
What one can do however, is compare the records of the aforementioned riders (as well as Casey Stoner) in the junior classes. Marc Marquez’s 125GP and Moto2 careers spanned 78 races. So to compare, I’ve compiled some charts to visualize his success in his first 78 races versus that of Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo, Valentino Rossi, and Casey Stoner.
