WSBK » Sepang teases mystery ‘legendary’ wild-card


Given how close the championship is after 5 rounds it seems very unlikely that its going to be a GP rider - no manufacturer is going to be interested in letting their chance of a title (rider, team or manufacturer) slip through their fingers on a wildcard outing. Even if that wasn't the case, the key here is where the announcement came from: SIC Chief Executive Officer Dato' Razlan Razali. It would take the likes of Dorna to get a current GP rider into WSBK for a wildcard. With Sepang negotiating directly with the rider there can be no organiser, team or manufacturer standing in the way of it, so its got to be a retiree or a rider still swimming around in a very small pond. Of those mentioned here already, I reckon Edwards, Haga, and an outside chance of Fogarty. My money is on Edwards - he's the perfect candidate for Yamaha to test out the new R1 in prep for series re-entry.

MotoGP » Top satellite Smith fights factory stars


"We've also gained some championship points on Cal, so we have accomplished what we set out to achieve." Bradley seems to have an unhealthy obsession with beating Cal this year. He mentions it every race weekend and its not going to do his head or his racing any favours. I'm yet to hear Cal mention Brad other than to compliment him on a good performance. In a previous interview Cal mentioned he didn't care at all for top Brit or top satellite status, he wants to get on the podium and he wants to win. And who of all the Brits and satellite riders is the only one with a podium? Who in both of those categories is ahead in the championship?

MotoGP » Rivals talk Ducati GP15


I bet the Pramac guys are over the moon with this. The past few years everybody has wanted any bike but a Ducati, and with no offence intended to Yonny and Petrucci, they're far below the calibre that other satellite teams demand of their riders. When the GP15 falls in their lap next year those could be two very sought after seats. I think one if not both of Pramac's current riders will be shown the door at the end of this season.

MotoGP » Marquez chooses ‘compromise’ Honda


Painless: So you have Stoner's data but you don't have his lap time. . [Laughs]
Yes he has his data and his lap time, but if you had actually read the article, MM "didn't check". I don't know why anyone would read into this, obviously both he and Dani are going to be faster than Stoner. Casey has been out of a full time ride for two years, and spent the whole test using only MMs and DPs settings - Stoner is good, but not good enough to go close to sub 2 minute on someone else's setup. More likely that both Marquez and Dani were ahead of Stoner, but MM respects the man and his talent and doesn't want to say so.
