Loris? 1998 250 Worldchump? Only because taking out Harada his team-mate on last corner last lap to do so. How could they retire his number let alone let him be a part of Safety. Another Dorna yes person has his hand in Carmelo's pocket.

Well, as we've seen after the last two years, Caramello really is one of the good guys and he's prepared to offer some riders all the help they can get by placing his minions in every position available to achieve the outcome that will keep everyones best interest at heart while coincedently topping up his retirement fund to the hilt! What's next...Honest Graziano's Tyre Distribution Service?
