gogo-gadget-wangslap: AFAIK McCormick and Berger are basically pay riders. And Smrz... well, his place is sure so far, he does not rebel like Guinters.

Tough go for Guintoli - hope he lands a good ride asap. That said, no need to knock McCormick. "The Kid" has what? A few spins in WSBK? Who knows what he'll turn out to be, so the impacts of keeping him won't be known for a while yet.

DAMMIT!!!! In one post I go from annoyed to quite liking / respecting you... Nice post. I like Guinters a lot. I think he's got an attitude reminiscent of the 70's / 80's racers.. Kinda expect to see him with a smoke and a beer between races. Great sense of humour.

I agree, it is insanely frustrating to see him slip back, but it has been as frustrating to see the other podium possibilities slip away when he looked set for them (Again I say Monza, Assen Race 1, Aragon 1...) But at the same time, they have stepped forward and i can definitely see him keeping his chamionship alive and maybe even winning next year? I, FOR ONE ,CAN ONLY HOPE!!!

Guinters on the Honda? I am scared to recommend that but many couldn't do it and he does have a determination that may get it done. I believe this might be the seat for him, time will tell. I like Aoyama but he is definitely not getting it done at all!! He is barely a top 16 rider at the moment but maybe he just hasn't gelled with the bike.
Kawasaki for Guinters next year...not so sure, if Baz shows something special with the remaining rounds. He may be retained.

Great guy and great rider. Will get a ride "for sure" (Why do so many drivers and riders use those 2 words together? Think it was Mansell who started it and hes English! Well sort of - a brummie)
Got to be either Kawasaki or Honda if he stays in WSBK.
