Tech 3 hoping Edwards will stay.

“But we have limited track time and Colin is already in the USA and has a lot of things to do. The main thing is also to make our Moto2 race riders Yuki [Takahashi] and Raffaele [de Rosa] feel at home on the bike.

“If it had been 2006-7-8, when there was no problem with the economy, maybe I would have asked Colin to ride it - even just from a media point of view it would have been exciting.

“Now we are not in the scenario. But if I have the chance to put Colin on the bike I will take it. And I'm sure Colin's comments and feedback would be very, very accurate.”

Poncharal then underlined just why he is so keen to keep Edwards as part of his team.

“You can rely on Colin's comments. Always,” he said. “You just have to ask Yamaha, Ohlins, Brembo and especially Bridgestone how good Colin is as a test rider and at being able to explain to all the engineers, in every department, what he is feeling.

“For me he is the top guy for that. Maybe the top guy.”

i love being gay Hey dummy - you know that list of names that you put up? ROSSI,LORENZO,STONER,PEDROSA if you actually bother to look at the championship standing you would see Edwards name RIGHT behind those names in 5th. So is he not one of the best in the world? So is 6th through 17th no good and need to be run of out of GPs? I swear if it was up to some of you there would be a 4 rider grid in GPs. And if having one win means more than having consistant seasons than Vermeulen and Elias wouldn't be on the sidelines and out of GPs.

Bob says that Colin isn't a decent rider, yet Colin is making millions by racing against the best in the world and Bob is sitting infront of a computer screen saying he is rubbish.
