BSB » Hopkins impresses on competitive return in Spain

Gotta agree with PatrickD, Hopper's a class act no doubt, and he obviously has world class potential - he demonstrated that in GP and WSBK. But if he'd been in a better position last year, who would Suzuki take to partner Laverty in WSBK? Obviously you're gonna go for the young gun Lowes, he's got talent, potential, a lot of time to go and few injuries to deal with. Hopper's a great bloke and awesome rider, but he's got less and less time ahread of him. I reckon he should bag the BSB title a couple of times, or maybe even go for a record five if he can handle it, then go join Randy for testing and the odd wildcard.

MotoGP » Honda responds to Ducati’s Open decision

I can see where Honda are coming from, in that the Open class is an evolution of CRT - a category designed to allow cheaper bikes on the grid in the absence of manufacturers. That said, everyone must have seen which way the wind was blowing the moment they announced Yonny on an Open Desmo. And whilst perhaps not in the spirit of the original CRT intention, its none-the-less within the rules. I personally don't think they should make any more rule changes to ECU requirements. If Honda are adamant they want to develop a superior electronics package let them try - we'll see how long they can stay competitive when other factories like Ducati and potentially Aprilla/Suzuki, are running circles round them on an advanced (but cut-price) ECU with greater fuel and tyre benefits. It won't happen this year, but if everything stayed the same I could envisage Ducati with another championship by 2016. The only dubious part is how much of Ducati's software made it into the Open ECU?

MotoGP » Espargaro thrilled with sub two-minute lap

Basically Yamaha have bagged themselves yet another satellite team - evidenced all too well by the Yamaha pre-season launch with 6 bikes on the stage. I can see Bradley and Aleix getting the swap-around and factory supported riders like Pol being offered a ride in NGM in the future when there's no space in T3 - it's the perfect graduation programme, they'll be happy with these results.

MotoGP » MotoGP entry list updated, Camier at Ioda

Beggars can't be choosers, he had to go where the ride was. Having said that I don't think this is a terrible turn of events - had he been bashing fairings with Espargaro last year on equal machinery I could potentially see Leon on the NGM ride now instead. If he gets some improvement on last year's Aprillia package and has a good showing I think he could find himself in demand next season.
