Great! Would be great to see a proper Yamaha WSBK effort again. Leonov is not a bad rider, but he's not a world class either. I hope they'll acquire some another rider besides him. Maybe Cluzel? Or some another ex-WSS or ex-MotoGP rider?

mmm, jejeje, i am thinking Camier is free now, if they come back with Yamaha could be a great combo, obbiously everyone remember Effenberg case, Yaknich should respect MV compromise,

Effenberg from too much to less than nothing, from have 4 bikes (Guintoly, Smrz, Berger and McCormick) to that rare sole comeback with Ducati 1198R in 2012? or 2013? with Lanzi i think, they manage horrible that bad situation, but dont forgett at least they did well during two/three years...

Cluzel could be a great option too, curious, would be awesome just the two 2013 Suzuki riders could bee partners again here...

I doubt Cluzel will be racing for YM. However if they can get factory support, bringing on Kenan Sofuoglu would be a wise maneuver. Why YM persists in supporting Leonov is a bit of a mystery to me, but Kenan's a great asset, and has made some lessor efforts look better than they really are.

besides, its only a matter of time before Turkey becomes stronger allied with Russian interests, perhaps the money behind YM should consider such a deal.

I dont know profx, sofoglu is not to be wanted by any team. He is a pratt and not very popular with his own mechanics. Always has an excuse besides himself, he should be winning races on that bike.
