Aegerter is not going to Tech3, he is expected to stay at Technomag for one more season, if you believe Speedweek and also HP is not really interested in him, cause he reckons that Domi is not good enough and too old for his standards... Kallio is also expected to stay at MarcVDS... PBM is not going to stay in the paddock according to rumours Paul Bird has sell his two spots to Aprilia to 2 millions... they will probably run Bautista and E.Laverty on an heavily updated version of the current ART machine

They probably won't be right but it's who I'd like to see on those bikes, not necessarily who's actually gonna end up on them

I don't see Hernandez moving just yet. He is trying to secure a 2015 bike, rather than the hand-me-down version he currently rides.

Although there are some good riders in Moto2, apart from Rabat (who has decided to stay another year), there are no obvious stand-out performers...some promise, some capable old hands, but no young guns.

Maybe that's why the rumours suggest interest in Miller. Moto3 seems to offer a bit more promise, but less proof of the pudding. Bradley might get another chance by default! If he does, he'd better make the most of it!

I like Vinales and Aegerter, but they are not really pushing Rabat too much. Maybe another year will help. It all changes in 2016.

It's Vinales' first year in Moto2....
He left Rabat for dead at COTA, winning his 2nd race by over 4 seconds.
It's only his 4th year in Grand Prix racing on a whole... he's won races since his 1st year and never finished lower than 3rd in a championship (3rd 125cc, 3rd Moto3, 1st Moto3, currently 3rd Moto2.) And the first 2 years were without any factory backing.

To put it into perspective... Marquez has 2 podiums in his first 2 years in 125 with factory backing, no wins.
Vinales had 15 podiums in his first 2 years, 9 of them were wins.

He is a young gun....I just hope he hasn't made a mistake going to Suzuki.

If Suzuki can develop the bike to some good base level, it won't be a mistake... right now nobody really knows how good Suzuki really is, simply because RdP is too slow, half or more of the deficit comes from him... As for other riders, some things look like this... Hernandez will probably stay at Pramac, he is doing good job at the moment with old bike, so Bradl is probably not going to Ducati, a lot of people predict that he and Smith are going to sign for Forward Yamaha next year..

Aspar boot Hiroshi Aoyama and give Camier a honda. Aoyama is fast but not consistant as late. If it was my money i would secure Camier for 2015 Aspar team before he signs for a SBK team. I think camier has proven his potential and is a talent that shouldnt be passed up.
