Unfortunately the games behind curtains might have caught Aleix in a bad deal. He will surely be fast but, the Honda package is well advanced and seemed more organized and clear than the Yamaha one. The ones losing the most are the Aprillia guys, just a couple of backmarker teams with not great riders( They are all good, excellent riders to ride in motoGP but not great like the front runners) Next season should be really interesting, to say the least....

Why would Pol want to be on a privateer team when he can be with a team that has the real deal bikes with a wealth of knowledge about those bikes. Pol is much better at Tech 3 than at Forward racing, a team which has done very little in the last some years.

Hard cheese! The Honda was never an option for him, he didn't have the backing that secured the Hayden deal.
I don't even get the hype with this bloke anyway! Another rider with a gold paved raceway to motoGP.
His brother's a better rider and less of a drama queen.

This just shows whats wrong with Moto gp. The trouble is they are not treating it as a senior class as it should be....they are just using young riders with less experience who don't know any better to give a better show and let the electronics stop them from high siding the feck out the race.They should only allow slipper clutches on Moto GP bikes and let the right hand take control. Perhaps Pol & Redding should stay in Moto 2 learning how to defend championships and develop mentally and Marquez should still be there as well. Dorna and the manufacturers are treading on thin ice relying on youthful exuberance and electronics to put on a good show.

Can anyone spare a thought for Claudio Corti? I met him this year at Phillip Island and he was the funnest guy apart from Colin Edwards that I have ever met. BTW, those two worked really well together. I'm interested to see what Aleix and Colin can do on the Yamaha.

"Nothing like starting off your move to a new team by stating you really would prefer to be somewhere else. "

This is the best comment for this article!

I thought Aleix was smarter than Pol. Wrong me! hahaha!
