I honestly think Rea does a magnificent job! Hope that he will get a contract at repsol after another year of WSB! It looks like he gets the hang of it pretty quickly.

@Midget both Repsol seats are contracted until the end of 2014. So Read won't get a Repsol seat for 2014. The best Honda he can hope for in 2014 is a satellite bike.

Also both factory Yamahas are taken for 2014 IIRC.

There's the promise of Suzuki of course, but I can't see them being competitive in their first year. And it's a very long time since Suzuki have been comptetive.

So unless Ducati have a remarkable reversal of fortunes before 2014 I can't see Rea getting a competitive contracted ride in MotoGP until 2015 at the earliest.

Signing for Honda for 2013 may turn out to be a bad career move for Rea. If the Honda isn't competitive again his stock will fall.

My money has to be on Lorenzo but I think Dani feels relaxed and confident now he's got nothing to lose. Lorenzo has all the pressure on him and is therefore more likely to crack. I don't think he will though. This is the most evenly contested title fight since 2009, and I'm sure that many will agree that if there's one area Moto GP really sells itself short in compared to F1, it's that the title is normally over with a couple of races to spare. So let's hope for it going down to the wire this year!
