MotoGP » Davide Brivio (Suzuki MotoGP) - Q&A


My first reaction was also to think that Rossi will be free in '15 and considering Brivio's close ties with Rossi (he has been running Rossi's merchandising company) it looked a shoe in. Would VR really want to take the risk for small money? He is still the highest paid athlete on 2 wheels and I don't think Suzuki has the money available to pay Rossi what he is used to getting. Suzuki does not need to secure a rider till silly season in mid '14 and if they cannot pay a large salary candidates will want to see how competitive the package is before committing. Part of the decision to go racing in '15 I think is to attract a top rider through having a competitive machine rather that paying a huge salary. This coincides with a bunch of racers being out of contract at the end of 2014.

MotoGP » Dovizioso hoping for new frame at Catalunya MotoGP


The lower classes always had a single tyre and for as long as I can remember. Dunlop had/has the monopoly, not sure if a single tyre was in the rules or not. The control tyre in MotoGP came in as a result of Bridgestone getting more and more dominant to the point where even Rossi with the overnight special Michelins could not match the Ducati. That was the time when Hopper had regular top 5 finishes on the Bridgestone shod Suzuki. The though at the time was that the Championship should be about bikes and riders and not a tyre contest.

WSBK » WSBK cost-cutting ‘framework’ agreed


This is a step in the right direction for one important reason. An overall standardization in national racing series, with a broad spectrum of classes to encompass, one one side gp proto types ... Read moto 2 and 3 and on the other side proddy based formulae, extreme 1000, ss6oo and SBK, will lead to a rationalization of the feeder classes and greater opportunities for talented young racers from countries embracing these established classes. Hopefully diversifying the colour of the flags waving on gp podiums.
