McbainUK i Tinck Repsol is = A Pedrosa.. i also apreciate some of his races but i also bet that Honda had enaught with him.. beeing passed by stoner then Lorenzo him world titles its a bit of sad for him.. Iven Nicky hayden manage to get one World Title.. At this stage he still dreams with one and really it seams almost impossible for him.. I dunno money rules the job so if Repsol whanted him has rider maybe Honda will let him play but if he deserves that?? i dont tinck so i tinck no other rider would have is lucke of staying so much time on one Factory Team and simple dont get the results i guess only a spanish rider for this luke.. I tinck Honda will have to choose on the final of the year between Alvaro and Bradl the best will have that spot.. But i also think about carl cruchlow i guess Dovi will not whant Repsol again because of the preference for Pedrosa when he finish 3 on the standings last year Like Rossi Dovi whant to teach Honda a lesson..

Rossi had admitted, more than once, that even if they get the Ducati performing he will not be as fast as Stoner or Lorenzo. He expects to be behind the Aliens no mattter how good the Ducati gets. Simple fact is that at the moment Stoner is the better rider and you can argue till your blue in the face who was better at their peak. We can never know and it is irrelevant to the current status quo.

@ lean two - I thought the same as you, that Casey was doing it for money (and I thought it was a great move), but since he's done it, he seems a lot happier. I think its therefore just about his personal happiness, and its therefore totally up to him. I do think / hope he'll be back though in a couple of years.

With regards to his seat, I'm a Rossi fan and it would be interesting to see him on it. But, if I take Rossi out of the equation all together, as if he didn't exist, I'd love to see Marquez on it. If he wins the Moto 2 championship, they'll bend the rules. They can bend rules when it suits them and they think it'll be better for the "spectacle". Marquez would be a fantastic young addition to the paddock.

Everyone is assuming that Marquez will be on the Factory Repsol Honda bike for 2014. Number One who is going to sign for Caseys seat for a contracted 1 year only deal, Number 2 what do Honda do if both of their riders perform well in 2014 and Marquez doesn't go that well on the 1000, it's a big step up from MOTO2, food for thought!
