MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Honda, Ducati, Aprilia - or Moto2?


CarmelitoEzpeleta: I think for Alvaro his best move will be to Pramac and try weasel his way onto a factory Ducati, Bradl should commit to Suzuki, and Gresini should either opt for proven experience in Aleix Espargaro, Kallio, Simon, West, or Barros... or try to graft through one of the hotshots from moto2 like Rabat, Vinales, or Torres.. Personally id like to see them take somone experienced like kevin Schwantz or Max Biaggi to give them a shot on the satellite honda
Goodness, if you're going to start dragging the old crocks out, you may as well give Agostini a go. John Surtees would probably be available too - lots of experience there...

MotoGP » Stefan Bradl: Honda, Ducati, Aprilia - or Moto2?


JedPB67:
shpongled: I imagine kallio and Elias also planned a '1 year' run in moto2! They say if you leave motogp you don't get back in, which appears to be the case.....
Elias did go back to MotoGP with LCR the year after he went back to the intermediate class... Also you don't know what Kallio has been offered since returning to Moto2, why would you leave a team you can win with to return to MotoGP with a tail end/midfield team such as Avintia or Pramac repectively
Elias was in m2 in 2010, gp in 2011, gp AND m2 in 2012 and m2 in 2013. Perhaps he should be called yo-yo... Kallio aways seems much happier in moto2 than he ever was in gp.

MotoGP » Lorenzo and Yamaha: One or two years?


Braaahp: 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. 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
Cast your mind back 2 years when Honda signed a rookie to replace Stoner. Oh, the outrage!!!! The rather stupid 'rookie rule' was amended to allow this to happen - more outrage!!! The year before, Bradl was signed as moto2 champ - having beaten Marquez - and was regarded as an 'exciting new talent'. However, the results have been a bit disappointing but you can't blame the team for not knowing that. On paper he looked ideal. I do agree that all those shouting for seats to be given to ageing has-beens (or never-beens) need to take a rest

MotoGP » Marquez joins elite eight-in-a-row group


He is probably the first rider to complete a race using two machines and never touching the ground... and there are loads of other stats that could be produced. Even if he doesn't win the next race it does not mean he immediately becomes not as good as so-and-so. This boy is very special and has a very bright future, especially as there is only one empty seat in the top teams and that is unlikely to change, so for the next 2 years at least, his main competition will be the same 3 he beat last year and this. Incidentally, using 350 and 500 data, Ago won 58 in a row from 1968 to the second race of 1971 so Marc has a long way to go to beat that.
