Has that old magic lost its mojo? No, it just needed the new form that Casey Stoner gave it in 2007, looking a lot like corner-speed style but with a faster-turning dip down onto the tire edges at the apex, followed by a quick lift onto the more durable shoulder for fast acceleration. All the dirt-track elements were there, but smoothly blended into what Cal Crutchlow has colorfully called, “Honda’s V-shaped line.” The point of that “V” is where Marquez turns his bike most rapidly. At Indianapolis, Marquez sat behind leader Lorenzo for 24 laps, betting his own tire, spending less time on the edge, would outlast Lorenzo’s. It did.
