Watch if Rossi gets a ride back at Honda since he ain't got no contract, that would be badass to get him of the piece of Ducati

Stoner would take that ducatic back to the top step. That would be badass.

And Stoner was,nt going to japan last year either.....

Could all just be BS..

By the way, how would honda love to put Marquez in that seat.. but no can do...not with the rule that rookies can't get a factory ride..

I think stoner's move is to put pressure on the peopele that make the rules and force them to show their motives.

I don't think there is any BS involved. I think he is legitimately getting out and its a smart move at that. With Sic's death last year I'm sure that that shook everyone up. He's at the top of his game and he's going to keep it that way and hopefully come out of it all in one piece. I have a lot of respect for Rossi's skill and his love of the sport, but it takes a lot of heart to fall from the top like that and keep at it (granted partially I think its the bike too). Stoner I guess just decided he doesn't want to push his luck and end on a good note.

I think with all the rule changes and addition of CRT guys we'll probably see a few more of the big names go.

Claiming Rule Teams. It's confusing.

they get a tiny bit more fuel and some other little options that help them out. intended to help fill the grid i think.

Hate to say it, but MOTOGP is in trouble...

I still love it, but I fear it may fade into mediocrity if the current trend of lame processional races and the mixed bag of bikes continues. The CRT thing smacks of desperation…

Exactly.

2 weeks ago he wasn't even considering it. I call BS. He needs more drama.

Max Biaggi is still a contender in superbike & at his age .... u know it's because he has a passion for it, nothing more. Stoner must be feeling a lil burnt. Hopefully he'll be back in some form or another.

CRT. Teams are designed to be a cheaper alternative to the multimillion dollar MotoGP bikes. I think they use 1000cc engines from various manufacturers on custom frames. Kind of an unorganized version of Moto2 or Moto3. I still believe that if they make the MotoGP class more like it's supporting classes would bring the interest back. It's way more exciting watching 3 or 4 guys fighting for first place as opposed to watching Casey and Jorge the only 2 guys fighting for the win week after week.

And, I believe if you think a CRT engine is over-developed for $20,000 you can have that engine pulled out of the machine.
