MotoGP » Eugene Laverty: MotoGP talks with Aprilia, Suzuki, Ducati

I think that Tom Sykes' style is totally superbike and would be difficult to change whereas Eugene has experience on a larger number of machines and seems to take a more analytical approach to his riding. There's no question that EL is fast and I'm thinking that he might be as good on the Kawa as Tom (come race day). If Suzuki do want Cal, then I'd say he's lucky given the fact that he's been infected by Ducatiitis and should take the ride straight away. It'd be the end of his MotoGP career, but given the hotshots coming up through Moto2 I think his career after 2015 may be over anyway. An alien he ain't!

MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?

He's had a cr4p year but he's still probably the second best rider in the world so who else would Yamaha sign? For me it's just a shame that the top Spanish 3 don't take a risk occasionally or that the big MotoGP teams don't take more risks in discovering the next alien. It's moves like the one Rossi made to Ducati (and also to a lesser extent his original one to Yamaha) that makes MotoGP interesting. Prototype running teams should look towards exciting new talent rather than running riders such as Bradl who will never mix it with the big 4 and that's particularly true of Ducati because they've got nothing to lose. You never know, they might find the next Stoner

MotoGP » Dani Pedrosa re-signs for Honda

You can understand why Honda did it because in pure numbers Dani has to be the 3rd or 4th best rider in the world but you can't help feeling that it was bad because it prevents a new hotshot having a chance on a real factory bike and mixing the championship up a bit. Maybe a new challenge would have got Dani going a bit as well. No change on the only 4 bikes that can win then.

MotoGP » ‘Frozen’ Crutchlow looking for movement

Nobody expected Cal to do anything on this year's bike but his problem is that he's doing so badly that he's putting the second year of his contract in danger, and if he bombs out of Ducati it's hard to see where he could get a ride. This has only been made worse by Dovi getting his head down and putting in some really solid rides. I think the big question at the moment is what he'll be doing in 2015 because even if you've got a 2 year contract there is usually some kind of performance clause in it. As for next year's Ducati, when it comes to Ducati promising a performance increase, we've heard it so many times that from now on that we're not interested in words, we're interested in results and given the results from the past an improvement is highly unlikely. People build Gigi up but he's just another team manger.
