WOW!!!! congrats!! a european at the head of a Repsol Honda, and an italian at that!!! never thought i would see the day when Honda would relinquish so much control to "ahem" foreigners!! and CHristian Gabbarini as the chief technical adviser. Two Italians ruling the roost at Repsol Honda!!

@mike.
he has a degree in business and a few other things , he created the benetton racing team with tohru ukawa and marko melandri in the late 90s.
one of the few who could see the true potentials of stoner while everyone else was focused on valintino rossi
i think stoner also help people see the great mind of suppo as well.
suppo has the mind of a genius.

lucious, Rossi stated that it was the treatment by Honda that showed him the door. Not to mention also the coincidence of Yamaha also debuting the crossplane crank engine in 2004 which still shows it's superiority in the satellite teams today.

@Mike

I recall reading that Livio has a doctorate in economics. Whatever, he is very smart, and has a great instinct for motocycle racing. I agree with Dacron - he would do a great job of running MotoGP.
