125: Webb signs up for new team

Danny Webb and Marcel Schrotter to ride for Indian manufacturer Mahindra and Mahindra in 2011 125cc World Championship.
Indian manufacturer Mahindra and Mahindra has signed Briton Danny Webb and German Marcel Schrotter to form its 2011 125cc World Championship line-up.

Webb will be starting his fifth grand prix season, having finished a best yet tenth overall in the 2010 standings for the Andalucia Cajasol (Aprilia) team. Unlike compatriots Bradley Smith and Scott Redding, Webb is still searching for his first GP rostrum.

Schrotter endured a challenging debut season in 125, as the sole full-time Honda rider, finishing 18th overall for the Interwetten team. Schrotter had finished fifth as a wild-card at Valencia 2009.

The Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) team has signed a five-year technical agreement with Engines Engineering's, which will take the Indian manufacturer into the new four-stroke Moto3 era from 2012.

125cc is presently dominated by Piaggio brands Derbi and Aprilia.

Engines Engineering wo'nt come up with a good bike They will just repaint the Loncin/Lambretta another time, it will be hopeless, slow and very unreliable.

Giancarlo Cecchini is one of the best and most experienced Italian racing mechanics with 50 years of working on racing bikes behind him. He certainly had nothing to do with the disastrous Maxtra/Haojue which was made by Witteveen and Franco Moro. This Haojue was incredibly bad, one of the worst 125cc machines ever made! Slow, unreliable and dangerous to ride. Giancarlo is now working on the Lambretta which will be named Mahindra next year, trying to improve a flawed design that was not made by him.
