MotoGP » Redding officially confirmed at Gresini Honda


@ TalentFan I agree entirely Honda are utterly ruthless and have all of motogp in their pocket. I'm not sure this level of domination is healthy for the sport. However I'm afraid we may be between a rock and a hard place. In the current economic climate if everybody stopped doing as Honda say what would happen? Their financial investment in all of this is huge. Personally I want it to go the same way as F1. Manufacturers produce engines supplied to say at least 3-4 teams each and you prototype the rest in house at each team. I expect Honda would still rise to the top.

MotoGP » Redding officially confirmed at Gresini Honda


With Redding's passport and the limited options in motogp Gresini is a good place to be. I fully agree that their is a manipualted disparity in performance between the factories and the other teams. I think the other major teams such as Tech3, Gresini and LCR etc. deserve to be winning the occasional race and not the occasional podium. When it comes to the production racer we have never been under any illusion that it would be competitive against the factory prototypes but they will want it to succeed against its direct competition the Aprilla,Yamaha engines and probably next years Ducati!

MotoGP » Redding officially confirmed at Gresini Honda


Gresini are a good team with strong Honda connections, this is a good move. The way I view the Honda production bike is its a CRT bike but built by Honda in their spare time. I expect they have a lot of this as its not like the factory Honda needs much ongoing development. Obviously its not expected to beat the full factory prototypes but Honda love to dominate. In the new second tier class they are going to want their bike to be competitive and beating the Yam's and Aprilla's.

MotoGP » Poncharal pays tribute to Ducati-bound Crutchlow


I also agree that the "Audi Money" is a bit overstated. I understand that Honda and Yamaha probably spend far more money. The main problem at Ducati hasn't been funding its been the inherent problems in the engineering and organisational structure. Take Melandri for example this now appears to be a case of when the experiment went wrong the scientists blame the guinea pig for giving the wrong result! Audi have made changes to the how things run to make it more effective and I expect are watching closely to see what can be achieved without throwing good money after bad.

MotoGP » Poncharal pays tribute to Ducati-bound Crutchlow


I really like Dovi but the problem is he is always going to be just another Italian rider. Whereas Crutchlow being the best performing British rider gets a lot of media attention. He also has a personality and character about him that fits well with the Monster Energy branding. I have always considered the good relationship portrayed between Poncheral, Cal and the Team to be genuine. However in this sport its the politics and finances that make the decisions.
