Before Misano finally we know officially that's Ben Spies the rider from Yamaha Factory Team 2011 & 2012 will switch to Pramac Ducati Team which mean we can call it Satellite team. And the youngs rider will accompanying him for next year is the Italian Moto2 rider who very close with the nine times World Championship Valentino Rossi and he is Andrea Iannone.
For me I'm understand when Iannone move to satellite Ducati , it means for him he up class but I still wonder when Spies very brave to take offer from Ducati satellite, although that team said they both will get the same engine and specification with Nicky Hayden and Andrea Dovizioso on Ducati Factory Team. But with very difficult we can saw from Valentino Rossi for almost two seasons and also the hard to ride from other riders of that bike, is really very brave decision take by the American Ben Spies. Really looking forward to see him for next year. Maybe with what Valentino Rossi and the Ducati team did for the last two year and the join of Audi to this bike would be nice to see them improve and doing some battle with the other bike. Will be very very interesting to watch.
So with the rule one brand of bike only can bring 2 bikes for factory team and two bikes for satellite team, means we just need to wait Gresini Honda Team. This year they only have one rider from Spain is Alvaro Bautista, who on this year not so brilliant like before he did with Suzuki bike. But he still have a chance to get the seat but so many rumor said the Gresini Team seat will be offer to Scott Redding and Jonathan Rea rider who replace Stoner when he in recovery after his big crashed. But we still don't know yet until official announcement will come out. At least we need to watch first what Rea will bring from his first ride with Factory Honda bike on Misano race. And I hope he will goes well because he rides the best bike on this season. Let's wait and see.
When Gresini team announce his rider for next year it will make force some good riders to find another solution for next year. After notable seat for Factory and satellite the choice for them only CRT bike or move to Moto2 class. And it’s really not good at all. When we look good rider can't get a good bike to ride on this championship. The Organizer need to think fast for this problem and make this Championship safe and interesting to we watch.
And Just got confirmation from @birtymotogp timeline that's Karel Abraham will ride on MotoGP class with ApAprilia ART bike in CRT with Cardion AB Team. And for Hector Barbera, he still on some talks with various CRT bikes. Alvaro Bautista too already thinks to ride on CRT if he doesn’t get the satellite seat.
So for a while here the puzzle already done for MotoGP 2013 :
- Honda: Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez
- Yamaha: Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo
- Ducati: Nicky Hayden and Andrea Divizioso
- Yamaha: Cal Cruthlow and Bradley Smith
- Ducati: Ben Spies and Andrea Iannone
- LCR: Stefan Bradl
And for CRT, honestly I really don't know who the riders will ride there, only the one I'm sure is Colin Edwards with NGM Forward and Karel Abraham
Hope the grid not too short for next year and hope the gap between bike to other bike not too far also. We need the old MotoGP back with the great Free Practice, Qualifying and also great Race. We love this sport a lot.
By the way I would like to say thanks to the great MotoGP writer I ever know, who very nicely to reply my question to their official account @birtymotogp and @motomatters , you help me to understand more about this sport and it's so brilliant. Thank you very much.
