Whatever you can say Red Bull, if you're a motorsport fan you have to be thankful for their continued support to anything that has an engine. If only other large companies would follow suit...

So I would very much like them to run a team, they'll have no trouble affording a few sattelite bikes to start with. More bikes on the grid is always better.

A full Redbull MotoGP team would be brilliant. And with their F1 success I think designers/riders/etc would be falling over themselves to sign up.

Yes, everyone should applaud Red Bulls involvement in motor sport but you can't really blame them for not getting involved in MotoGP at the moment, can you? Whilst I have always been and will always be an avid supporter of "Grand Prix" racing, you have to admit, MotoGP is a bit of a pigs ear at the moment!!

RED BULL SUZUKI / BMW / APRILIA. It would be awesome to see any of these in MotoGP as a prototype team with the backing of an outfit like Red Bull...hell, even KTM has a shelved MotoGP project...Then also limits on electronics, give control of the bikes back to the riders and the scrapping of the stupid single tyre rule should come in to play. Let the manufactures choose whichever tyre they want for whichever track they want. Only limits should be on price of the tyres and the tyres brought to a race weekend by the tyre suppliers are the only tyres to be used. ie. No special midnight spares. Level the playing field and keep it level thus encouraging other teams with smaller budgets to take part and be competitive. And thus encourage teams with bigger budgets who are will to enter but at present are reluctant to do so to enter the fray

Since that day in 2007 when Mr Mateschitz backed WCM to take over the Inzinger project, sticking it to his Power Horse as well. (How many times has that guy failed?)
Redbull have been present in the paddock in some way and others have followed, fans owe this guy and his competitors a lot. Perhaps we also owe Promoter for failing?

Why not? Or even why not buy the whole of MotoGP altogether ensuring all riders have equal bikes. Its surely not completely out of the question........

Bring back the tobacco sponsors, Rothmans Lucky Strike marlboro. Remember those days? Felt different to me. And money wasnt such a big issue then. In current economic conditions perhaps their big bucks could pull the stops from cost cutting at the expense of performance.

Let see... Uhhmmmm... Hmmmm...

How about "Red Bull Suzuki MotoGP" ..?
Sounds great isn't it..?

I'm desperate to see Suzuki back on the grid, hopefully with Ben Spies and Pol Espargaro.

And another satellite team "Aspar Suzuki MotoGP", with Espargaro brothers.

Bring on 2014 MotoGP..!!!!!!
