RDix: This is solely about money and nothing more. He's paying for this seat and that's why he's getting it. He won't be there next year unless he's ponying up a lot more money than he paid for his previous motogp ride, don't worry.


...or unless out of nowhere he pulls some really great races and starts beating Espargaro. Can't see that happening in about a million years really but still, come on. He's hardly as useless as some people here seem to believe. He certainly doesn't deserve to be mocked by any standard.

KnowNothing: Can't be much worse than Edwards, really.


Indeed. CE, as much as we all like the guy, he is a GP embarrassment - and it is not of late, but for over a decade. Though, CE has been able to make a good living due to his "passport" and to a lesser extent his marketing skills and sincere interpersonal skills - otherwise he would be on Nicky's bike... opps !! Did I say that? Ouch, don't seem NH will get offered CE's bike (he would have a cow) - after all dont some armchair "managers" here say it's about money? Wouldn't Nick ride for free at FW Yamaha? Or even PAY !!

In any case D angerous "may" have mellowed down a bit or else he may find that his only paid ride option will be a pizza delivery scooter in Rome. We shall see. It is a good "test" option as there are plenty of races left.

If Smith doesn't retain his seat at Tech 3 he should get that seat, if he does retain his seat it should go to Corsi, if De Angelis is on that machine next year NGM have made a mistake.
