re: "don't they want to boost the grid numbers?"

no, you're not accounting for recent events happening in the big picture. boosting grid number is less important now that carmelo's succesfully wrestled control of WSBK. the threat once posed by production racing is squarely in his hip pocket. though this is a correct decision regardless, he is free to act with impunity till such time someone smartens up and brings suit under european competition law.

re: "Dor(n)a that's a joke. This isn't just another team wanting to take part, it(s) another manufacturer!"

no, it's a manufacturer that treated dorna's product (motogp) like a joke.

tip: mind what you post and don't be so quick to parrot. based on what you say, others are able to figure you a laymen to grandprix. i would be one of those "others".

A certain Mr Vermuelen stills lives about 10 miles from Cambridge in England as far as Im aware.

Also he's not got a racing contract for this season either.

He's an Aussie but if Suzuki were to say (officially or unoffically) 'We've got an Aussie' everyone would pretty much know who it was....apart from the few muppets that would insist it was Stoner :)

Just my 2p

Dorma that's a joke. This isn't just another team wanting to take part, it another manufacturer! What are they supposed to do, buy a team and sack everyone to bring in the team that has been working on this bike for the last year plus! The more manufacturers the better, more bikes on the grid the better!

Jack said (among other things)
"Its the logical and correct way to run the championship. Bowing to the needs of the manufacturers got MotoGP in this mess and continuing down that path will only kill it completely."

But it is Dorna that seems to change the rules every couple of years (at the behest of Honda?) so no wonder it is unaffordable and has a shrinking grid. 990cc is good. Wait, 800cc is safer, that was boring. Let's make 1000cc now. Wait in the future (2 years) we want to go back to 500cc.

Consistency will keep the Mfg's in the game - not the game playing rules and indecisiveness.

Dorna has indicated that Suzuki will need to source its grid places from an existing team. What load of rubbish, why when there are so few bikes on the grid ? I remember the good old days with full grids !!!

It's all a big F##King joke.
The 4 stoke era was surposed to cut costs, 2 strokes were an enviromental nightmare, etc etc.
Just the mere fact that an oil change alone on a 4 stoke engine, far out weighs the bit of unburnt oil going into the atmosphere from a 2 stroke. And the cost involved in making a race winning 4 stroke, as opossed to a 2 stroke, do me a favour.
No, for me the sport was on a downhill slide the day 500cc 2 strokes were abolished.
But that's progress for you?
