MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


Indianbear:

stonapersona: jack miller wsbk entrant 2017...wait and see!
Very much doubt that. Miller is an exceptional talent and sought after. And bear in mind the rewards in motogp are way higher than in WSBK. Ask Crutchlow... WSBK is also starting to look like a veterans race. Wouldn't be surprised to see Ago back on the track next year....
moto gp is a two team championship and doesnt look like changing any time soon..
and is getting bigger audiences (partly through F1 disappointment), bigger salaries and big time fame. Miller is one of the new breed coming through the series and one of the big teams will want him. Oddly, being a non-latin will probably help him.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


TrueFan:

Insidejob: Why would Jack Miller say he has no contract for the future if he has? Maybe his manager didn't explain the contract to him. There's not enough info to pass judgement here.
Possibly ...
"because he he's focussed on this year, and it's his manager's job." ...fixed up your slip of the brain. You can dislike the kid if you choose, but you should check your facts before you make accusations.
From the same source (AJO site) he states "I have no contract for the future, so we are completely open and free to negotiate.” and "I only know that I have nothing signed for next year" Neither statement particularly true and not for him to comment as "it's his managers job" Why did MarcVDS feel it necessary to issue such a detailed rebuttal? Its unlikely to be because they are at fault. The expression 'don't bite the hand that feeds you' comes to mind. Incidentally, his manager is Aki Ajo

Possibly because he thinks he is so brilliant that he doesn't need to do moto2 and should be promoted immediately to the top level. Also, having won a couple of races, his stock has risen and any new contract will be of higher value. However, now Rins and Marquez are back on the button, his chances of the moto3 title is fading fast. Moto2 would be an ideal proving ground for him, not motogp. Besides, who would lose out at MarcVDS? Kallio or Rabat? Neither deserve to be ousted by this petulant youth.

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract


sodesu: No no, you've all got it wrong! This is all just a misunderstanding. See, as you've already pointed out, Aki is Jack's manager but also his team principal. So what happened was that when Jack asked Aki whether he had a contract for next year, Aki thought Jack was asking if he had a contract to ride for his team! So Aki said no. And then Jack thought Aki meant he has no contract in place at all for next year. Then Jack said he didn't have a contract in this interview, and before Aki read it and they had a chance to explain the whole thing to Marc, Marc read it himself and thought he'd better publish a press release to clarify the situation. Oops! Funny story, really.
Which is sort of plausible but for the fact that the original comment from Miller was reported on 12th June, some 22 days ago and since then there has been no clarification from Ajo or Miller, only today's announcement from MarcVDS.

F1 » Pirelli to test 18-inch tyres


If they only want to understand how the cars would look visually, it would be less of a waste of testing time to get a kid and Photoshop to create an image. And if they want to see how 20 inch, or even bigger, look, just get an old pram and stick a wing on the front and back, and a dingly-dangly genital on the front. Should save a few pennies...

F1 » British Grand Prix - FP2 results


I'm beginning to feel very sorry for the Torro Rosso duo. I think both are probably pretty good but its a rare day that something doesn't go hideously wrong for one or both. But then a lot of the cars seem to be dropping to bits. After the break I predict quite a few grid penalties for broken components and utter chaos when trying to work out the grid from qualifying. The shouty man on BBC will, in all probablility, explode.

MotoGP » Moto2: Lowes slips out of podium place


Very dangerous to believe that just because a rider is successful in moto3, they will succeed in moto2. Take Terol, Cortese, Simon and di Meglio - all lower class world champions but nowhere in moto2. Even Marquez's first year in moto2 started badly, falling each time. Once he learnt to avoid the horizontal he was ok. Of the new entrants in moto2, Vinales has adapted best with Folger a close second (although Assen was a disaster). Lowes is more in the Salom mould and needs to keep the tyres on the track rather than in the air. Both, I reckon, will be competitive but not until next year
