@Realist
My personal opinon is that if JLO goes to honda Rossi will come back to Yamaha,Yamaha will hope he can come back to grips with a bike he knows well and he is also the only other person to really Battle with Jorge other then Stoner of course..I also wonder if Yamaha could get KC outta retirement for 2014..I dont think Stoner will stay retired for long..and i think his relationship at HRC has soured considerably over the last few weeks.

Honda not going to next test seems like honda and ezpeleta are locking horns at the moment with the new tyre as Dani and Casey saying no point going to next test if they dont even have the new tyre to test. Now Dani agreeing with Casey in what is happening to the championship. Seems to me like Ezepeleta want to take the championship down with Spains economy very touchy times in the sport at present.With all these changes maybe 2014 there will be no Honda/ Yamaha/ Ducati just a bunch of back yard superbikes

@ Md Zane

Weren't they on a level playing field in 2009? 2010? 2011? It isn't like the Yamaha is significantly better than the Honda (or vice versa). Dovi just couldn't perform like his counterparts.


@ sg dave teeth

He will be if he decides to leave Ducati!

"As Cal said his riding style is similar to Stoner"

Casey disagreed with that by saying Cal brakes later and takes different lines. So id take number 35's opinion with a grain of salt.

Yamaha future more power? If so, bye bye honda.

If only it were that simple. It's not and never will be. As the Ducati machine has made clear for several years now for example a significant part of the deal is the delivery of power. If you have mega power and the throttle is a light switch you have unmanageable crap. Then on top of that the dynamics of the suspension working with frame geometry and flex all combining in harnessing power and getting it to the ground. Tweak one detail and often how the others work change as well. Then on top of that is the rider and their distinctive style.

this championship is becoming a joke. It is almost like NASCAR. Doing everything they can to try to get closer racing is just ruining it. I fast forward over the parts when the cameras are on the CRT (should be CRaP) bikes. I don't care how many fairings are banged, it is still boring. Spec racing with fairing racing is BSB...I love BSB, but it ain't MotoGP.
