MotoGP » ‘Betrayed’ Gresini expands to all three classes

Whilst they are lucky to have national-level backing, Gresini and Aspar are doing their utmost to keep privateer entries across all classes in difficult financial times. I think they (and the many other regular private teams) should be commended for this. Also, it's a bit tight (although understandable in a way) of Honda not to give Bautista a factory bike when Simoncelli was going to get one. Although a new class means there won't be too much difference, just giving him a rev-limited bike is a bit sh1tty.

MotoGP » A MotoGP chapter closes for Suzuki

In the late 70s/early 80s 500cc was going the same way - diminishing grids, lack of funding, not enough manufacturers, and no privateers because old bikes don't win. Then Yamaha were persuaded to sell factory spec engines to private teams at competitive prices, which saw the private teams using their own equipment. At the time it bumped up the numbers a lot, and this would happen now too, if the manufacturers weren't so stubborn as to sell reduced spec machines to customers, or bikes with little support. They're cutting off their nose to spite their face.
