A shame the sponsors werent happy... brand new chassis takes time and the lorenzo framed open yamaha is best suited for well, lorenzo as we can all see by others riding that frame.. the real shame is that De Angelis wont do any better on the bike so giving edwards the boot was terrible.. sponsors still wont get any air time and De Angelis isnt famous like edwards...

Pretty obvious why the sponsors weren't happy. He got his much lauded new frame and did precisely nothing with it. You can only blame the bike for so long. See also: teammate.

His battles with Bayliss were epic in WSBK. GP, not so much.

" I think everyone is going to see that you're going to have to reinvent their package once more to make the Michelin tyres work. It's going to be some hard work for a while to get things moving in the right direction. But Yamaha and Honda are still going to be there. It doesn't matter.”

I've been flamed for saying that the control software and tyre swap won't change the status quo.
CE knows what he's talking about. Are the Mouthy Ones going to rubbish Colin's words?

The Fans could really do with someone actually telling it like it is so that they can really understand the true nature of MotoGP. It won't be pretty, but it'd be nice to get some of them back on planet Earth where reality lives.

Some Crash posters would have to eat a hell of a lot of crow or slink back under bridges if Colin really told it like it is I reckon.

re: "DIDO"

ok she's cute, but what does that have to do with Edwards...?

btw Cruzari, it's not lost on me with colin stepping aside, one of my favourite Czech brollys has suddenly returned. kudos. oh yeah, we're paying attention over this way pal. :)

ps: one's still missing (you know who I'm talking about), now let's get it together.

While I think that Colon should have retired a few years ago I still think his current team should have allowed him to finish the remaining races unless he was injured. I'm sure how poorly he was doing compared to his teammate probably had a lot to do with their decision but knowing he was going to retire the decent thing to do is let him race. Just say'n.
