MotoGP » Valentino Rossi's replacement announced


PJ, The rookie rule says that a rider who will be coming to MotpGP FULL TIME, can not goto a factory team (other than suzuki) if he has not completed 9 races in a single season before. So, since Ben Spies is a full time rider, with Tech3, he couldn't move over to the factory team. The rule doesn't affect "wild card" rides, because those riders from other championships or test riders are not full-time motogp riders. So basically, wild card riders can goto factory bikes, but rookies contracted to race the whole season can not.

MotoGP » COMMENT: Who should replace Rossi at Yamaha?


I'd think Spies will do two more races on Tech3 (might be Rossi's bike, but in Tech3 colours). Then switch to Fiat since he will be at 9 races (unless the rules states 9 races at beginning of season), until Rossi returns. Crutchlow I think *could* ride for Tech3 straight away, because he is not a fulltime MotoGP rider, he would be classified a wildcard. I don't think they will give him that seat though, unless maybe for the two races Spies is still in Tech3.
