I looked at wiki stats of Guintoli..., they're scary.

Only one 3rd place with Aprilia in 6 years of 250cc, regularly between 10th and 15th place in motoGP, not even a podium in 2010 with Suzuki SBK (with Haslam title contender).

emotions really dominates the human mind, this guy is a wet or mixed condition star and he just had the biggest results of his career, but he's not someone a top team should count on to win a championship

get fk real

Obviosly dont know the ins and outs of this, but if guinters has gone back on a signed contract, then he is is in the wrong, maybe the efferberg management has rubbed of on him.

Dont agree m8.. We have a lot of exemples of riders that when they find a place where they can develop some worck they upgrade there performance they change and become better riders.. Tom Sykes is just one exemple of that he had tuff moments im good Teams and then after he feel that Kawasaki trust on him he almost win the Champion.. Guintoli can be the same if he find one Team that inspired him that he feel that have future and is part of the Team he can be a contender.. exemple if Biaggi leave and Guintoli go ride the Aprilia factory 4sure if he feel good on the Team and feel that he is importante there he will have all chances of beeing a contender him the Champion..

yes, this is true. psychological aspects and trust-support from the environment are very important and can transform performance

but still i wouldn't sign up a Guintoli if I were Aprilia.

as for Sykes, it's for sure an interesting story, but I'm not sure you can compare it to Guintoli, Sykes is younger and has a lot less years of competitions in world championships than Guintoli.
and Kawasaki wasn't looking for a title contender..., it just happened

Ah Jumbobet, Guintoli never had a factory 250 Aprilia just an LE which was very rare to be able to get on the podium in those days you had fast Hondas and latter KTM's. In Motogp he rode the Dunlop shod Tech 3 Yamaha which a top 10 was a good finish and he did achieve a fourth at a damp Montegi as well as running second behind De-puniet at Lemans before they both crashed. His second year on Motogp was on a Dantin Pramac Ducati which if you watched in those times needs no explaining.
All in all he will never be world champion (well maybe in WSB) but he has never had a top spec factory and tyres.
