TrueFan: RDP wants a race ride next year....maybe Forward Yamaha will take him on to help refine their chassis. They have two vacancies as of today, and yet a promising new chassis. They ought to try one relatively known quantity, and one young guy with potential.



Oh, you can bet the phone is ringing off the hook over there...

Well not surprised he has or almost has signed with Suzuki as they wanted a top notch rider amd a young gun.

In other news Aprilia is rumoured to be pushing its return forward a year to next year interesting stuff if true maybe Melandri and Guinters may make their GP returns.

Seeing those two back would be good but it isn't exactly what is was when they left.

Still so many things to fall into place hopefully the race for 5th is a good one next season.

mrfill: Whatever you may think of Dorna, the introduction of moto3 was a piece of genius. And maximum credit to Aleix. I wish him and his team the very best of luck.

I agree with your sentiment mrfill, but perhaps the "genius" tag is a trifle excessive. 125cc 2-strokes have no contemporary relevance anymore, and Moto3 was the obvious direction. It has produced some awesome racing though...so I'm with you in spirit!

and finally...

"Suzuki has held intensive negotiations with Dovizioso and Crutchlow Iannone. With Aleix Espargaro now a merciless fighter was hired, who showed in 2012 and 2013, that he can make good figure an inferior car. He will be able to do even with Suzuki This ability. In Forward Aleix has recently won the pole position at Assen, in Saxons ring Qualifiers 4th place (before Lorenzo and Rossi), the last two races of the World Cup Sixth shone with ranks 4 and 6

But the Spaniard finally wanted to make some real money - at Suzuki beckons at least a million euros a year.

Thanks to its splendid achievements had Aleix also offers LCR Honda, Gresini Honda, Drive M7-Aspar Aprilia and Honda. And as a two-year contract until the end of 2015 for forward-Yamaha. But he could get there, if a work offer comes."
