Bradley may just keep his ride by default. If in fact A Espargaro and Vinales have signed with Suzuki, who is left. Bradl is signed, Miller is the only Moto 3 guy and he is supposed to be hooked up with Honda and Redbull. Maybe they can reward the 112 year old Shakey Byrne when he wins ANOTHER meaningless BSB championship

So Lorenzo would've had a reduce amount on negotiating power, anyone think he took a pay cut?
Jorge now on more or less than Vale?
Have to be less.

I Ride: Yamaha R6, Aprilia Tuono 1000 R
Last I heard Rossi's 2014 salary is $12 million with $10 million more coming from other sponsorship. Lorenzo is currently making $7.2 million from salary, and another $2 million from other sponsorship. The next highest earning rider is Marquez, making a combined $5 million from salary and sponsorships thanks to his newly extended contract with Repsol.

Petrucci to Pramac Ducati, didn't see that one coming!

Good job, it's nice to see a rider who has earned a factory bike chance.

MotoGP News - MotoGP: Petrucci confirmed with Pramac Ducati

Quote:
After battling back-of-the-grid machinery for the past three seasons, Danilo Petrucci will get his chance on the more competitive Pramac Ducati in MotoGP 2015.

The 23-year-old Italian joined MotoGP as the 2011 FIM Superstock 1000 runner-up (on a Ducati) in 2012. Remaining with IodaRacing throughout, Petrucci spent two seasons on Ioda/Ioda-Suter machinery before the team acquired an Aprilia ART for this year.

Fresh from his career best-equalling MotoGP result of 11th at Motorland Aragon over the weekend, Petrucci is delighted to be competing with Pramac Ducati for 2015.

I am very happy to have reached an agreement with Pramac Racing, a team that has helped to promote the development of young riders, he said.

I am also proud and extremely motivated for the chance to ride a Ducati. I will try to give everything to make the most out of this opportunity for which I thank Pramac Racing. I also wanted to thank Giampiero Sacchi for giving me the opportunity to start racing at the highest level in MotoGP.

The ART has been the leading machine in the former CRT category, but has been thoroughly outclassed under the new Open rules. Petrucci's season was also interrupted by a broken wrist at Jerez and he has scored just four points this year.

Petrucci will take over the seat of countryman Andrea Iannone, heading to the Factory Ducati team, and ride alongside Yonny Hernandez. It is not yet confirmed if Petrucci will inherit Iannone's Factory status, or if he will join Hernandez on year-old Desmosedici machines.

It's strange to me that Jack Miller is being pushed to Moto GP. He has been getting swallowed up in Moto 3 races and isn't even the best rider in the championship (since Alex Marquez came into his own).

Is Dorna desperate for an Aussie rider? Will Miller be ruined by this impatience, when a year in Moto 2 could have been better for him?

I Ride: Many
Aussies don't ride little bikes.

We don't even get some of the smaller bikes you guys get O/S.

Aussie riders historically don't fare well in the lower capacities but are more suited to the bigger bikes.

Honda know that.
