On the same point - I'd LOVE to know the real spend that the Manufacturer's Teams part with to run their bikes over a season. Never mind where it comes from, just a REAL total. It'd be interesting to know just how much more Honda are spending than Yamaha to beat them (let alone over Ducati and esp. the CRT's, which must be embarrasingly huge amounts). Given Spalding's article and his points about just how astronomical the impact is to Factory support just ONE extra bike to the same level as the lead pair, then Honda's spend must be mind-boggling (as well as an indication of just how far Honda are prepared to go to win). No wonder Nakamoto is pressurising Bradl to deliver - cos it's costing him a fortune!
