    Exclamation Pedrosa to Yamaha and Viņales to remain at Suzuki.....?

    Can't say I was expecting that lol. I'm sure "speculation" at this point but well seems like a lot of those are turning true as of late. Thoughts? And.... GO! Discuss!

    I thought he had good points until he said Cruthlow(Crashlow) was going to a factory Honda. That made the whole article BS.

    Actually from what I've been reading online. There is a good chance Dovi may be headed back to HRC. Crashlow isn't going anywhere. Only reason HRC would employ him would be to crash into everyone else at the start so Marquez can ride away.

    That's crazy man. Would have expected Pedrosa to stay with HRC. Yeah he was never going to win a title for them or himself on a Honda. However, he's one of the fastest guys out there and I don't think anyone else will replace him at HRC and be just as fast. I do think he's going to do well with the M1. Little bit more agile bike that doesn't have the vicious power delivery of the RCV. Should help him with his wheel spin/grip issues.

    Supposedly Viņales signed with Yamaha a few hours ago and they're supposed to announce it next Thursday during the press conference.

    Whether people think it or not, I believe that seat at Suzuki will be a much coveted ride. I would think which ever Ducati rider loses their ride will be in the main running for that spot at Suzuki. Unless the silly season really gets silly and Pedrosa moves to Suzuki(which I can't see happening).

    Vinales will do well at Yamaha I think. His style and age will give Rossi someone to mentor and help cultivate for Yamaha. These things mixing together could be dangerous if they come together at the right time.

    I can't remember a MotoGP season that there was more talk about next season than the current season.

    Yeah definitely very weird there's this much turmoil over contracts and such this early.

    There is always a MotoGP 'silly season', but since a lot of the contracts are two years the intensity varies year to year.

    Well it's official that Pedrosa stays at HRC so that also confirms Viņales at yamaha. I foresee Dovizioso staying at Ducati and Iannone going to Suzuki
