Ben is already in talks with yamaha to keep his seat. Crutchlow will probably end up at Ducati. Pedrosa and Marquez are the honda riders to keep Repsol money coming in. If johnny rea went to GP, the CBR1000 wouldn't win anything again.

The part is that it looks like Hayden will be without a ride next year. Doesn't make sense though since he's been the only rider to get decent results, consistently, for Ducati.

Honda no longer threating to quit.... Just shows the concesesions they made to get MM and retain the Repsol brand, having all spain team is also a nice bonus for them.

Message; Dorna do what you like now.

Alos intersting how CRT rides arent even discussed as posiblities. Kind of shows where that leves things and what Dornas next moves will be to establish a full grid of winining options not just bikes.

Like I've said all along, the CRT bikes are there just to fill the grid. The notion that a bike based on a production engine could keep up with a prototype design is laughable. Like saying an GT500 mustang can keep up with a GT40. One is a high spec street car, one is a purpose built race machine with lights. The only way to make them competitive is to limit the rev ceiling and use a standardized ECU. Might as well just leave it as is and require the prototype bikes to run on a fvcked up rear tire. Wait, that already happened and the factory bikes still cleared off from the CRT machines.

I feel for him, I think he's one of those riders who never gets the credit he deserves............

I'm not sure what Ducati is thinking but something needs to change. I read somewhere that Checa tested the new Panigale WSBK bike and is considering changing teams for next year.
