i dont want to be "bad" but... how if they try to change to Magneti Marelli? look what happen with BMW in spuerbikes...

since BMW engage Magneti Marelli, they can manage electronics... i think the same about Suzuki MotoGP, Mitsubishi do a very good work at electronics if we count they only provide 1 team...but i would loved to seen what happen in the past with first 990cc and 800cc "Suzies" if they taste Magneti...just for know and improve, i love see different brands involved in...is necesary and important there is available different alternatives, the same for tires... dont mind only one brand, but they MUST give many options, not ONLY two

Everyone of then with this name it would be the coolest private Team.. just have to had this name or Yamaha Texas Team, or Honda or Suzuki.. With Colin taking this Team as Boss and pilote wille he whant to have fun then he can be Boss fulltime.. Sponsors would love the idea and i think Colin would enjoy to!! Could be one way of bring young American talents to Motogp..

maybe Edwards and Ben can get some R1s put in to play in WSBK next year. Would like to see Edwards on a competitive bike before he calls it quits on the world stage. Good luck finding anything competitive in MotoGP.

Yes, Suzuki hung on to the Mitsubishi electronics package for all the wrong reasons, 'other working relationships'...in Suzuki's last year of motogp it was suggested by Paul Denning that there was 'every chance' of MagnettiMarelli getting involved with their programme IF they stayed the following year...it's a shame he felt they didn't have the time (re resources) so couldn't evaluate the system during that season.
There are very strong indications that the current 'motogp test bike' is still utilising Mitsubishi however but that WILL change if a sponsor is found for a return back to the track...let's hope so !!

CRT has been an unmitigated disaster for everyone concerned. The bikes have next to no performance in comparison to the full GP bikes they share the grid with and they appear as no more than mobile obstacles to the main attraction. But worse than that there's no close racing between the CRT bikes themselves and we're looking at them and wondering what is their point. The lack of development has reduced the riders to the ignomy of bit-part players on the margins like tired clowns at a circus. Dorna should make the top class a true Moto1 format to echo Moto2 and Moto3 or go back to the true prototype along with various restrictions on cost. It is time to end this farce - oh Death, where is thy sting?
