MotoGP » Pramac confirms three-year MotoGP offer for Kent


madh4tt3r: and you think kent is gonna be any better at communicating setup?
No, I never said that, but it's possible. Miller and Kent might have two very different skillsets and two very different ways of analyzing things. Miller also came across like a petulant child at times while in Moto3. Kent hasn't exhibited that level of immaturity. I do think it would be ABSOLUTELY RETARDED for him to pass up a near factory deal for 3 years with Ducati.

MotoGP » Pramac confirms three-year MotoGP offer for Kent


I'll say this right now....Rins, Rabat, Zarco and Kent (to a lesser degree) will regret these moments if they don't get offered a decent seat in GP in the future. There are A LOT of up and coming riders, and teams will remember this. Teams are almost begging Rins, Rabat and Zarco to make the jump (meaning....multiple offers, multiple times), and they continue to turn them down or shy away from moving up. If they never get offers again, it'll be their fault (..and fans can't say they weren't given an opportunity).

MotoGP » Pedrosa: I look like an amateur


Every time Pedrosa experiences issues, fans start making "end of the road" and "retirement" statements. He's still competitive enough in GP that I don't see him retiring after his contract ends. Dani probably has at least one other contract signing under his belt before he considers retiring unless an injury is sustained that makes riding impossible.

MotoGP » Zarco: Not many opportunities for MotoGP


eadgbe:
Realist: Rins is wishy washy. Rabat is wishy washy. Zarco doesn't seem 100% convinced he wants to make the jump either, and even Kent hasn't decided yet. Teams don't have time to sit around and wait. ..and only 1 M3 rider has made the jump, so it's not like it's a trend........yet!
I agree that there's a strange reluctance to move up to motogp by the likes of Rabat, but it sounds to me like Zarco hasn't been considered for the Pramac ride or similar which I'm astounded by. What else does he have to do? If he has been offered it but turned it down in a fit of french pique, then I take all this back!
Zarco got a Pramac offer, but he's being reluctant.

MotoGP » MotoGP Brno - Full Qualifying Results


alanw5293: What team?....Aprilla now need three bikes,Pramac also need three bikes,Forward may fold, so where does Brad go in Moto GP. Brad,Bradl and Redding could be without a ride next year and WSBK has few,if any competitive options.
I doubt any of the three riders will be without a ride. Bradl will likely stay with Aprilia, especially showing the pace that he has on the Superbike-GP bike. Redding will stay in GP.......maybe not the factory Honda, but he'll remain there. Smith isn't going anywhere either.

MotoGP » Zarco: Not many opportunities for MotoGP


eadgbe: I can't understand why motogp teams are so keen to sign moto3 riders in preference to top moto2 riders like Zarco. Moto3 has no where near the depth of talent that moto2 has, so given a choice between a rider leading moto2 by 70 points or a rider leading moto3 by similar, I'd go for the moto2 guy every time - and that's despite being a big fan of Danny Kent. Maybe they should introduce a promotion/relegation system like football?
Rins is wishy washy. Rabat is wishy washy. Zarco doesn't seem 100% convinced he wants to make the jump either, and even Kent hasn't decided yet. Teams don't have time to sit around and wait. ..and only 1 M3 rider has made the jump, so it's not like it's a trend........yet!

MotoGP » Pramac confirms three-year MotoGP offer for Kent


ampere: I don't know which versions of Ducati Pramac now have, it might be essentially a GP14 but that doesn't mean hat there have not been updates. Anyway, isn't it the bike which Cal almost put on the podium last year?
They are on last year's bike (the 14.1 and 14.2), and Pramac already explained by in the Q&A article. This season is the only season that they haven't had the same bike as the factory team (they are factory supported, not a satellite team). They will be on factory GP's next year.
