MotoGP » Smith ready to fight for Tech 3 seat


LastOfTheLateBreakers: Giving him yet another year would deliver the same poor results and furthermore hold up the development and opportunity from a more talented and deserving rider. Smith has to go....
Who is this talent that is coming up then? There is no one better than Smith that hasn't already signed in MotoGP other than A.Espargaro, who is chewing his arm off for a factory ride and will probably get it with Suzuki. M.Vinales is going to Suzuki, Folger is tied into a contract in Moto2, Rins and A.Marquez going to Moto2, Miller either LCR Honda or Pons in Moto2, Salom is staying in Moto2 as is Rabat. The only 2 riders from M2 that could have a chance at taking Smith's seat are Kallio and Aegerter and they're both long shot, from Moto3 you have Fenati and he's an even longer shot.

MotoGP » Smith ready to fight for Tech 3 seat

JedPB67:
TomIvoh: 3 wins over a period of 7 years (5 in 125cc, 2 in Moto2)... it's good, not great !!! bye BS
Nicky Hayden 3 wins over a period of 11 and a half years but he's still allowed to ride GP's
Just incase you've forgotten Nicky Hayden is 2006 WC
What difference does that make? It's still only 3 race wins. According to @Tomivoh if you've only ever won 3 GP's you are to banished from MotoGP and cast off to another paddock.

MotoGP » Miller to join Crutchlow at LCR?


Of the riders currently participating in MotoGP 18 have come up from 250cc/Moto2, 6 have come from elswhere be it AMA, WSB, WSS or BSB. Those 6 have 3 grand prix wins between them...all from Hayden. As Hayden has the longest career of these riders he's the mark. From his first season in GP's in 03 there have been 199 grand prix, out of those only 6 races have been won by riders not from 250cc/MotoGP - Hayden (3), Spies, Vermeulen and Bayliss (1 each).

MotoGP » Miller to join Crutchlow at LCR?


cbrbamby: I'm not saying he shouldn't get this chance, I'm just curious why there is so much effort to take him off a little moto3 bike and on to a high powered prototype. We've seen plenty of good racing from the Ktm over the years so,,,I dunno.
He's going to GP's because Dorna need to secure the Australian TV contract for next year, what better way to do it than by having an Aussie in MotoGP, it's just ridiculous that they're putting Miller on the fast track quite simply because of his nationality. Dorna frequently pay teams to take these riders for their business need and interest. Look at LCR in 2011, they didn't want Toni Elias but Dorna paid them to take him as he was Moto2 champ.
