Also where does this leave casey aswell....alegedly. It seems either a satellite team or suzuki. Ofcourse some one could give him factory support, well exept suzuki.

Stoner to yamaha obviously [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif[/img] .

I am joking in both cases, of course, but I agree with your original point that jorge may have overplayed his hand. Yamaha have spies in the offing, whom I agree is taller than is common with current motogp riders other than valentino, and valentino currently has put no period on his involvement in motogp; F1 and WRC , his putative alternatives, appear to be imploding as we speak.

Jorge could still be with Honda on a third factory bike sponsored by telefonica unless of course Repsol has sole bid on the factory equipment.

Reputedly factory spec non-hrc hondas have not always lived up to expectations, although a nastro azzuro non-hrc bike was not too shabby in one particular year as I recall.

It has no bearing on Stoner whatsoever.
