MotoGP Feature - MotoGP: Honda hoping to continue with Crutchlow, Miller

Tito may by out.
Nakagami may be coming up to MotoGP. Morbidelli is almost sure bet too even though he may not going to Honda.

I do believe that Morbidelli still has a contract with MarcVDS for next year. I'm sure I read somewhere that if he wins this year(likely) they want to move him up to the GP.

I Ride: BMW, Honda, and another Honda
I think Miller getting moved to GP from M3 was Honda's way of keeping him from other teams. It was not a good move for Miller, that is for sure. If Honda actually keeps him equipped like Crutchlow and the VDS team is on the ball, and his injuries haven't ruined his body and/or mind, then there is a chance he might beat Crutchlow and the other Satellite riders. That is a lot of ifs, however. I am rooting for him. Just like Binder, he was a blast to watch in Moto3 and seems like a "natural" talent.

Miller should never have come from moto3 to the gp, I think he has wrecked himself at the altar of Honda, the masters of crassness. Yeah I know I ride hondas, but that doesn't mean to say they are right and at my age I think a BM tourer will be my last bike.

Wrecked himself?

Maybe Honda still wants Miller, but Miller may not want Honda any more. Jackass approached Ducati, but he is asking for too much money.

Have to agree J4.

For mine, his Honda options are extremely limited in terms of machinery as for three years he has been placed at the bottom end of the scale in terms of equipment and support (have no issues with first year), and this is no slight on MarcVDS who I feel are also not receiving the HRC support needed.

As for dollars, well you always ask high and be prepared to drop lower although it also depends on when you drop.

That all said, I feel that he is doing no better than he possibly can this year given equipment and in particular tyre uncertainty as I do know that he has stated a few times that his biggest battle is getting the front to work.

IMO only, but the loss of Gabbarini has greatluy affected the progress of Jack
