We all have diferente prespectives, Since the news that say that Maverick and Alex will sign for Suzuki in Motogp that i think Eugene will try to go to Aprilia Factory in Motogp, Some news where saying that Bautista and him would be the riders for this bike.. But i guess was just a Buzz but not really on paper... If Eugene can t go to Motogp with Aprilia i guess Avintia will not be that Bad because they sign a contract with Ducati for 2015, so even if they have to ride the 2014 bike for Half sesson until the 2015 bike is ready to all Privaters i think will not be big problem.. The only probleme is that if the 2015 Ducati bike is wrong again..lolol

EL should aim for another top team spot in WSBK over a team hopelessly disadvantaged in MotoGP I reckon.

MotoGP is never going to offer EL a competitive opportunity. Just like the 18 or so riders doing little more than providing some track space filling already.

IMO no rider good enough to warrant any MotoGP grid spot on merit should actually take a ride there. Not until Dorna provide an environment where those riders get a genuine chance to race for wins with genuinely competitive equipment.

MotoGP is a career killer for most who enter, and not necessarily because the rider wasn't good enough. EL should steer clear.

A better team in WSB would be a wiser move than a poor team in Grand Prix-as Laverty is neither small or Spanish he would simply languish in the peloton with Dorna.
Money/business/politics is the key and sadly the clowns at Dorna are slowly strangling what was once a terrific sport.
Lowes is a great talent and will win in WSB, only question is the Suzuki setup-are they serious about the budget needed to win.
Denning seems to lead a charmed life-many years winning nothing in Grand Prix then off to WSB to win, er, nothing.

Well my friend with not a single sports bike in the top 10 sales figures for the former WSB mad UK its not looking good. He obviously thinks its worth pursuing as most do, whats a world championship worth that no one knows about?
There is that thing about Spanish passports again, how many Brits in WSB? How many Brits in GP?

Dorna aren't strangling it, if it was left to FGS (who became IMS) it wouldn't be here now just like their Superstars series, you cannot survive on a few hundred people watching, sanction free races and ridiculously cheap exclusive TV deals on channels no one watches.
