Wow Jorge's wages are gonna look like chicken feed if Honda and KTM get into a bidding war for Marc.

Maybe it'll be Yamaha in the end... That'd be fun!

Honda is all about bushido code of samurai, that is LOYALTY. Be loyal and you're going to be rewarded. Look at Dani, winning races, but not a single title. Yet Honda carries him through these years.

There was a Honda rider called Rossi who decided to be a ronin and commit the mutiny in 2002. He ceased to exist on Honda's book, not even after 2 dominant titles.

If he stays with Honda, Rossi could've done more than just 10 titles. But it would be terrible for the show because Honda would be so dominant all weekends, there will be nothing left to see.

if he stayed with Ducati Ducati bosses would borrow swords from Japan and do harakiri themselves.

LMAO:).Dude you just won internet for today.Even ice bergs are not enough to apply on that burn.

Why are you commenting on your own comments with a different username??? Everyone is laughing at you!!  Tool.


As you put it, "Honda has carried Danny through all these years." But from where Dani sits, he has won 54 Motogp wins for the team, who is carrying who? 


54 wins span over what, 13 years? How about Marc 35 wins on motoGP alone over 4 years. Point is, Dani didn't win a single title. If it's any other factory team, it would be easier to just remove Dani.

Another case is the late Nicky Hayden, winning the only 2006 title for Honda, but struggling later until WSBK move in 2015, yet still on a Honda team. There's always a place, even if it's the faraway WSBK land or any other competition.

Honda values loyalty more than any other teams. End of.

Dani had wins this year, was fourth in the riders championship, with Marc he won the team championship again helping Honda win the constructors championship and you reckon he's only there through loyalty.
