So Sorry for West, I think he would be on podium again if he races this weekend. Not much hope for Sucipto, but I bet if the Malay rider Hafizh is riding the bike, expect some fireworks bcoz the guy is familiar with the track and running in the Spanish CEV Buckler championship...

Another example of how bikesport and motogp in particular has become a total ph**** and completly at the mercy of money.

The championship (asian)he has come from is NO WHERE NEAR at a high enough level to put him in gp2, this is realy stupid, Im not going to say dangerous because I'm all for new up and comings to get a shot but if that asian championship is his experience he needs to race elsewhere before this. imo

I'm Indonesian and I don't believe myself how on earth he can get that ride. I don't even think he has enough money to buy a ride at this level, well none of our riders has IMO. They must have seen something on him. I don't know how well he performs in the asian championship as I don't follow it, but anyway good luck to him this weekend and hopefully he can bring the bike back in one piece

This is preparation for 2013 as Anthony West and Rafid Topan have been confirmed as QMMFs riders for 2013. If you don't believe me type in on google (Rafid Topan Moto2 2013) and read for yourself. Also I think Doni Tata Pradita a former 250cc rider is taking Gino Rea's place in the Gresini team next year with the same sponsor as the sponsor is Indonesian.
