MotoGP » Moto3: Jack Miller wins, Alex Marquez champion


@Ben1 Miller certainly calls someone a "******* Prick" in Parc Ferme. The Commentators apologise for the language as it was picked up by the microphones. Whether or not it was MM he was shouting at is up for debate. It was certainly shouted towards the Honda team corner and the camera did cut to MM looking quite pleased with himself. What went on before I have no Idea.

MotoGP » Redding waiting on Gresini for MotoGP 2015


I don't really think Redding has a lot to worry about here. If Gresini don't run a prototype spec Honda next season Honda will still make sure they have both available satellite Machines on the Grid somewhere. If this means LCR runs two prototype machines then Scott will get the ride there as their new sponsor would be keen on a British super team. If VDS make the step up Scott will be there number one choice. Redding will ride a Prototype spec Honda next year the ply thing to be decided is the livery. TBH this might work out well for Scott as with either VDS or LCR he would be more likely to be able to run the Brembo/Ohlins Combo he wants to run

MotoGP » Petrucci: Aprilia my priority for MotoGP 2015


Certainly seems this 2015 Aprillia Factory return rumour is gathering a bit of credence. I really hope it's true the more factory seats available the better. Suzuki vs Aprillia could be a good rivalry to help bring on their respective levels. As for Petrucci I'm not sure he'd be my pick for the ride but then again it's hard to gauge his potential given what he's been given to work with. Petrucci's problem is there seems to be some decent riders who will be looking for rides next year Including Bautisa, Bradl, Smith and AEsp who seems set on factory machinery. Petrucci's biggest selling point over these guys is he has some experience of the current ART and he will likely come cheap but will he come with any endorsements? As always Sponsors will have as much to say about potential pilots as any team manager, they are after all, the ones stumping up the cash

MotoGP » Hernandez: I want to stay here


Mrfill Yonny is a well known to as a pay rider using state sponsorship to pay for his ride. More than a little perplexing given the economic situation of Columbia. Motogp and manufactures are keen to expand their market in South America necessitating a South American rider for Fan interest. Passport riders aren't necessarily spanish. The current Spanish domination in Motogp is due largely to the Spaniards having the most competitive feeder class in the world, a breadth of companies willing to sponsor, a depth of talent and huge interest in motorcycle racing from the Spanish people. There are a number of riders the in Moto3, Moto2 and GP classes who don't necessarily deserve to be there on merit but being, English, German, Thai, Japanese or American maintains or increases interest in those markets so they keep their ride. If there was another South American rider in Motogp Yonny would loose his ride therefore he is a passport rider

MotoGP » Hernandez: I want to stay here


Ok, I won't try to convince you. To me Yonny isn't really worth arguing about. However in your exhaustive google search did you try his website? Where he lists among his sponsors Coldeportes (the Columbian department of sport), FedeMoto Columbia (Columbian motorcycle federation and funnily enough www.Columbia.Co (Columbia). If being in large part state sponsored doesn't make him a passport rider I don't know what does. As for your point about Audi only having one dealership in Columbia thats kind of the point. South America is an emerging Market just like Asia and India where Manafacturers are keen to expand and Motogp just like F1 are keen to increase interest so they can sell TV rights. Yonny and any other South American rider who should emerge will be welcomed with open Arms to make this happen.
