Crutchlow hails Marquez

British MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow has heaped praise on Marc Marquez, saying a "rider like Marquez come along every 15 years.

Marquez has impressed and has been backed by many during live betting online, during the MotoGP Championship.

Honda will most likely not regret their decision to bring Marquez from Moto2 directly up into the Repsol Honda squad.

"You only see a rider like Marc Marquez come along every 15 years and the one before that was Valentino [Rossi]," said Crutchlow. "It's as simple as that. He's fast and he's tough to beat...

"Look at Mugello [when Marquez ran off track and fell along the main straight] no one else would have thought to have leaned the bike over, put the bike between himself and the wall.

“He's just clever. He's just like when you drop a cat and it always lands on its feet. It's like that and it's unbelievable. But that's his forte."

Marquez failed to impress during the Italian Grand Prix, but the 20-year-old has finished in the top 3 in all other events this season.

Cal Crutchlow himself has impressed this season and is currently fourth in the MotoGP standings. Dani Pedrosa is first, nine points ahead of Jorge Lorenzo in second.

In other news, reports have suggested that the MotoGP grid could increase to 28 bikes for 2014, with Aprilia considering increasing their involement in the sport.

Carmelo Expeleta, CEO of MotoGP rights holders Dorna, told BBC Sport: "We will announce that we will open again for more entries next year and then we will admit four entries more, up to 28."

Suzuki also plans to make a return to MotoGP in 2015.
