Strange move by the Team!! What they what from Salom him 2 races?? For me this rider was never the best option to replace Silva because Silva was with the Team since the Star and was experience rider, the layout was one young Star like Hernandez and one experience like Silva but then come Salom and without any experience they whant results him 2 races its a bit strange.. i think the Team could have find a better solution!! We have many riders out there that 4sure are loocking for a place at CRT bikes.. Since this Team is supply by Kawasaki engines i would try to cach there recente Champion Kenan Sofuoglu, i think he would be good rider for this bikes..

@ Vilas:

I do not think Sofuoglu would be the right choice, as his last outings in super bikes was not good at all, he is more comfortable in 600s, some one like Redding or Espargaro would be a better choice.

No action in this team make any sense at all.

First they use Silva as a guinea pig with two different bikes during the season. Results are bad and replace him with a rookie who only has two races before being kicked again, to be replaced by the first rider...

According to the journos on Twitter Barbera will be racing in one of these seats come 2013.

I can only assume Hernandez will have the other ride? He's done well, won fans and Dorna likes having riders from emerging markets. Potentially exciting team there.

MotoGP = circus, these kinds of things happen when money is tight I guess, expect more of the same. Cant really expect someone to perform when you give them a broken bike and jerk them around.
