Yeah, really did expect a better showing from Splitlath this season. Obviously not through lack of effort or having two very good riders.

Just goes to show how tough it is in the BSB!!

Looks like its been a tricky bike to setup at world level so it must be even tougher round the tight and twisty British tracks.

Good luck to Marino, shame it hasn't worked out.

Just look at Luca Scassa to see that BSB is a big step up from WSS. A couple of poles, 3 wins, arguably the fastest guy in the series last year although Chaz could outsmart him more often than not.

Stick him is BSB and he's nowhere.

good thing for Florian, team is a joke. looks like he will be on a Kawasaki ZX6 for MSD R-N Racing Team India.

such BS that he wasn't in WSS full-time this year, same with Riyo.

So much for the Red Bull Rookies Cup doing a service to its former champions, the only former champion currently in the WC full-time is Jakub Kornfeil.

Florian Marino, Jake Gagne and JD Beach go screwed over royally.

Yes..they dont seem to have moved forward that much from last year. Thats inspite of what i believe to be significant team investment.

Hindsights great...but i wonder if they should have stuck with the RSV. Especially considering EVO engine rules and its rep as being tricky to set-up.

For the sake of his career and morale he had to get out....looks like the team recognise that they're holding him back, the Aprilia really is a disaster outside of the close control of the factory team in WSB. Its a good job Chaz Davies team are close enough to share info.

I have watch Marino throughout his career and there is no doubt that he is better than the results show.It is 100% the fault of the team why he is not getting results.
You dont sit on the front row of a WSS grid and in seasons prior to WSS stand on rostrums with Gino Rea on Euro 600 stock bikes and then sit on the back of the BSB SBK grid without good reason.
Good team,good riders,good bike 'my ****'as Jim Royle would say.A VERY WISE MOVE ON FLORIAN'S BEHALF
