Yes, I am aware of the Suzuki and the BMW stuff.
Admit I haven't kept tabs on the Suzuki, but they did go to Dorna to request to test without committing to a full re-entry (think Dorna said no?) - this suggests that they want to test the water with a toe, so they can pull back. If there is a 100% contracted commitment to be back with full factory next year, then I haven't seen it, no.
As for BMW, as it stands thats just a comment, not a commitment - there's no obligation to follow through on that.
I just think that the odds are so heavily stacked in favour of HRC /Yam in MGP that other Mfr's will be wary of spending lots in a high profile series with a disadvantage that can see them get publicly spanked and damage their brand against Honda /Yam. If I was a CEO I'd steer clear anyway.
