Good for Herve and Tech Twa. They deserve a shot at being more than a 2nd tier team for Yamaha. I 'm still running with the rumor that Redbull and KTM are preparing to make Marc an offer he cannot refuse. An offer that makes JLo's look like pocket change.

J.Lo will probably only have pocket change in 2019

Right now I donít think MM will go anywhere as he is chasing titles and that simply isnít going to happen at KTM in the next 2 -3 years if ever. Honda will give Marquez around 15 million per may be 20 if he demands it.

A meeting in Rossi's motorhome?

As stupid as it all sounds, but I wonder with regards to MM moving to another brand as to what would need to fall into place.

I strongly suspect that Rossi would need to be gone (retired) as, despite all the public utterances I believe that there is still hatred and animosity from years past. Plus, I feel that MM wants to get 9 titles before he goes, which leaves a number of years as I do not think KTM would be ready for a few years yet.

Maybe as a retirement, who knows but having typed all that I also expect that HRC would move heave, earth and the damn solar system to keep the kid until they feel that a successor is there ............... or the old Alberto returns and kicks him

If Marquez wins again this year, I would think there's a high probability he will look for options elsewhere.

He comes across as a guy who values competition more than money. Sure, money is great, but the challenge is what makes the money worthwhile. If he feels that winning on the Honda is not a challenge for him anymore, he just might jump ship.

...and in the worst case, if it doesn't work out, I am sure Honda would move heaven and earth to take him back.

Maybe against the current field, but few years back he veto-ed Stoner when Pedrosa was injured and he (Stoner) offered to replace him for COTA.

Yeah, I know that.
Marquez in his early years was... for the lack of a better term, a colossal prick. Having Alzamora in his ear didn't help much either.

He still is sort of one, but now he has the results to back him up.

I think it could happen. This could be his "ducati" moment. Why do all the top riders end up going there? For money? To prove something? Well ktm has that plus they have fuck tons of money. I also think the move to bring Puig to honda could be telling of hondas future plans. Thats not a move to help Marc thats for sure.
