Sounds like poor Guintoli has caught caught up in the fallout of a team in the process of imploding? If the technical staff have walked you gotta ask why? The usual reason for quitting a gig like that is if you aren't getting paid, so i guess we'll see.

Guinters was doing a sterling job and was the teams best rider, race winner & generally running ahead of his Czech tean-mate Smrtz - so they'd not want rid of him based on performance.

I've always liked SG as a rider, but he's had a lot of awful luck in his career (what he'd give to have his old Tech3 ride back now eh?). I hope he gets to pick up a decent seat for the rest of the season - he's too good to be sat on the sidelines.

exactly. some riders may sell themselves short and work for free, but the boffin wrenches say... (ray liotta voice) "F-U PAY ME"...! no money modeling underwear or hocking energy drinks in their future.

Criminal, a great rider who has helped Ducati in the manufacturer points hugely this year.
Maybe they are not paying the guys and running the maintenance requirements of the bikes properly?

Check out Liberty's latest press release they're now accusing Guintoli of poor results that caused "a lack of media return" which created a "subsequent reduction of investments by the same sponsor"
