Bradl to race with #6

Stefan Bradl to race with #6 during 2012 MotoGP season
Reigning Moto2 world champion Stefan Bradl has announced that he will race with the #6 on his LCR Honda during his debut MotoGP season.

“Dear Fans! Now it´s official, my new racing number is "6". I´m sure it´s a lucky number :-) See you soon!” Bradl wrote on his official Facebook page.

The young German previously rode with the #65, which looks to have been retired as a mark of respect for the record-breaking career of MotoGP veteran Loris Capirossi.

Bradl, who tested an 800cc RC212V at Valencia, will make his debut on the 1000cc RC213V during the start of the first Sepang test, on January 31st.

Bradl is the only 2012 MotoGP rookie to race a factory-built prototype, rather than a CRT machine.

I think the sponsor "6,5%" who supported Capirossi and Bradl because of their 65 number will not be happy next year. Anyway, I agree with the retirement of 34, 74 and 58, and maybe they should retire the number 46, but I don't think they should have retired Capirossi's number. He didn't win a single championship in MotoGP, he had a long but not too special career. Pedrosa have achieved a lot more even so far (not talking about Stoner and Lorenzo) will his number be retired after he stops racing?
