Teams need sponsers who will whant to be with Suzuki or Ducati or kawasaki if the story is always the same.. For that is better to have one grid only Honda or yamaha at least the races will be more competitive but again will the factory loss to private teams that also Win more money with there own Sucess?? i dont think so.. Live is hard m8 but If Honda or Yamaha dont help Dorna they also loss there momente because could be the End of Motogp..

Seems as though Daniele Romagnoli will be staying at Tech 3 rather than moving to Ducati as Cal's crew chief. Probably to work with Pol E next year.

I expect the Espargaro/Tech 3 announcement will come pretty soon now.

@ Balance. I do mean this seriously, I am not trying to take the p!ss.

Please, please write less, and think MORE. All you do is to regurgitate everything the Media is telling you! Like Mfrs are ESSENTIAL for motorsport survival like MotoGP (well lots of series inc. BSB don't have factory teams, but DO have good regs and teams, a variety of equipment AND sponsors wanting to be involved).

Also, you expect, accept and consider it perfectly ok for the factory teams to regulate the competitiveness of other teams! That's like saying I can play you at tennis, but that I'm allowed to cheat, and say when you can win a point or not!

It is the job of the Series organiser to regulate the series so that ALL teams have a fair chance to compete. Dorna support the factories in their control and domination FFS!

Please, PLEASE think! Don't just type regurgitated dross.

Well this sucks, I really don't have much of a reason to watch MotoGP next year.

1. 2013/14 WC is already decided between 4 contracted riders on the Yam/Hon jlo/rossi/mm/pedro, which I don't see rossi coming better than 3rd, if pedro does not win it this year, his chances won't be any better with MM constantly getting better and faster as well as more support.

2. Cal's post race interviews will go from happy to putting the tech 3 on the podium to the same complaints and sad "we tried our best" that we've been hearing from the red crew for the last several years.

3. I want edwards on it, the hilariously brutal way he slams on his NGM machine, I want him on the duc just to hear his comments on it. with my favorite quote of his being something like " we had a good weekend, but the bike is still sh*t"

re: "For the sake of your career Cal"

I think that's what he's doing it for. he knows with the Spanish politicos it's all rigged.

but whether you're on for a title shot...? or you're wobbling around 11th on a CRT...? you're chance of getting killed (simo/antonelli), or seriously injured (lorenzo, pedrosa) is the same.

right then, gimme the damn money...!!!

If Cal is going for the money then good luck to him. I hope he remembers to ride within the bikes limits, we have enough riders injured.
If he thinks he can get good results he should remember that Dovi used to beat him when he, himself, had a couple of years start on the Yam. Dovi will have a years start on the Duc. If they battle like they did last year they are both going to get injured.
