No one. Stoner will ultimately get the contract he wants.

Not a chance. It has been reported that HRC offered Casey a 1 year contract before his retirement announcement at double his current salary.

Removed disparaging name.

Yep, I'd certainly forgotten that...

Bautista or Bradl both make sense. They already know their satellite Hondas. They may only be needed for a year til Marquez can be brought in, but then again, they may show really well and can be kept on.

@ there there now

At the end of the day, money drives MOST decisions. I already offered an alternative that is more aligned with your perspective (pride in Yamaha and his place with them). Just because somebody has millions doesn't mean that they don't desire to earn MORE millions. To suggest that he will not - at least - entertain the idea of more money on a marginally better bike (especially if Casey comes out ahead for the 2012 season) is simply just denial. It's all conjecture at this point, but we shall see.

Bradls contract is with HRC - not LCR. (there are two HRC engineers in the LCR 2012 team)

And, he's on a two year contract as well - the only rider in MotoGP to currently hold a 2013 contract. If HRC wants him in the factory team they can just grab him.
