Yeah is incredible how the situacions of some riders had been changing for better now!! Both Espargaro and nicky will have chances of change there Career... 4sure aim with big curiosity to see how good the new Aprilia will be and how good will be the package on the Yamaha m1 of Forward Racing.. Both are respectable Teams!!

I think the NGM Yamaha effort is going to be competitive for sure, there is a lot of you that still underestimate Aprillia even with the results they have shown so far with their CRT package, i truly believe that they are going to be even more competitive for next year with a brand new bike that will come with a new frame, pneumatic valve engine, seamless transmission, knowledge acquired from the Bridgestone tires and Aspar team racing experience, also i believe they are going to make more HP than the Honda PR bike, Yamaha PR and even Tech 3 team, so i don't see a donkey here.

Don't know what to say about Esparrago's move from Aspar. With just a CRT, at least from my point of view, he is been as impressive as Marquez in a factory prototype.
I think he is the most overlooked rider in the paddock for the amount of talent he is got.

He, himself, has even said that 70% of the success came from the electronics. I'm not saying he's not under appreciated - he is. While Colin is second this year, Randy dePuniet was runner-up in the CRT's last year. A lot of it is the bike. Why he's not on an established prototype team is beyond me.

I still dont get it. Prototypes should be for the absolute best riders, not the next crop of riders. Those young guys should have to cut their teeth on the CRT bikes, and the absolute best should be on the best bikes. Aleix is definitely a stronger choice than Bradley Smith or Pol.
