MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract

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

MotoGP » Marc VDS claims 'binding' Jack Miller contract

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 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.

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...

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

MotoGP » Rossi, Yamaha confirm two-year deal

Codger: Tetley "And with Crutchlow's history of successes on the Tech 3 M1, he could be the perfect number 2 to Vale, so a Cal and JLo swap isn't out of the question." Crutchlow ? Don't you mean Dovi ?
I see where you're coming from, Codger, but in terms of the T3 M1 I think that Cal's 2013 achievements outweigh Dovi's 2012 results. True, Dovi is more successful on this year's Ducati, but he has a year's more experience on it than Cal has. Also, I have a feeling in my water that Dovi's 2015 is already sealed. Cal, on the other hand would jump at the opportunity to be in a works team on a bike that he knows well, following in the footsteps of Hayden and Edwards.
Do bear in mind that in 2012 Cal had a year's more experience on the Yamaha than Dovi had. And was more successful..... There's a pattern I'm spotting.

F1 » Caterham F1 confirms change of ownership

Frazz666: Wonder if tony fernandes will pump more money into his moto2 effort now
Its not that easy to shovel vast amounts of money in moto2. Engines are stock. Frames you can almost buy at Tesco. Electric gizmos are very basic. They could spend to buy alternative riders although Zarco is rapid on a good day. Herrin is lost in moto2 and could be replaced. I expect the team may get a bit more cash for parts but they seem to be functioning pretty well at the moment. Any motogp plans are looking more realistic though. And thats not a bad thing. As for the F1 team, the wreath is on order.
