BMW launches 2013 WSBK campaign

Discussing the logistics of the restructure, technical director Andrea Dosoli insists having the team run out of Italy and the R&D in Munich will not represent a challenge.

“Our close cooperation is the key to have a competitive package. We are one team and we have a continuous information flow. The bike is a complex package, any change to the engine or the electronics has an impact on the chassis and vice versa. My role is to steer the information flow. We plan the development process according to the riders' feedback and requests as well as to the current competitive situation.”

The team also confirmed that Barrier will attempt to defend his Superstock 1000 title in 2013, the Frenchman dovetailing his campaign with an Endurance World Championship outings. Barrier will be joined by three-time South African Superbike champion Greg Gildenhuys.

Why? Because Leon was just simply out peformed by Marco last year? What's wrong with plain simple hierarchy? Or do brittish riders have to be treated different? Seems to be like that when i read a lot of comments here? Big UK nationalism here, keep it objective please... Best of luck to both of the BMW riders! Hope Chaz can get along with the BMW, very talented rider he is.

Hard to crash into Leon when he's hovering around 6th place the whole season and Marco's fighting for podiums. Yeah it happened once, but how much of a factor was Rea?
