MotoGP » Moto2: Herrin out, Wilairot in at Caterham


He got the ride by recommendation from Colin Edwards, and to me its the old problem of not being able to adapt to a race chassis, and he is showing no sign of getting there. Wilarot like many say still rebuilding from the Marquez incident, he also had head injuries from a scooter crash that killed his best friend as well as serving his time as a monk. Mr Fernandez wants to promote Asian riders anyway and why not, thats where the biggest bike sales are at the moment, even though they are small bikes.

MotoGP » Marquez has first shot at Doohan record


TalentFan: Criville was Repsols Golden Boy of the time while Ukawa was Hondas man. Doohan was not a clear No1 - he was simply better than his teammates and there wasn't the technology on the bikes to synthesise what he was doing to beat them.
About sums you up, Ukawa was never in the 500's at the same time as Doohan, it was either Ito or latter Okada after impressing on the V twin. Anybody who does not believe Doohan was not clear No.1 is in S1 territory, Criville rode for Pons for 2 years before moving to the factory set up which at the time was not backed by Repsol. In 94 Criville's first year they ran sponsorless. Ito was Honda's darling. Doohan was the first to run big bang with multiple maps (hence in 91 building up a huge lead) and the first to revert back to screamer.
