Avintia survives on a shoestring budget.

It is quite possible that they might take over the Yamaha satellite bikes for a couple of years and then sell their grid slot to VR46.

Could Tech3 be what they need as with Tech3 comes years, literally years of Yamaha experience in the main game that will no doubt give them the experience that they may be lacking?

Sure, different brands and all but it is about the machinations, the processes, the back end work that needs to be done and no doubt Tech3 have that as, race wins not withstanding they are the most successful satellite team of the last 10 - 15 years.

Could Tech3 be the key for KTM or if I really want to get all conspiracy laden, could they be 'encouraged' by DORNA to 'merge' with the existing KTM team (Tech 3 experiance with KTM money and expertise) as that then frees up the spots for team VR??

Hey, it is pre-season so we can come up with as much bullshit as we can .................
KTM has done amazing things in the dirt bike race world in a short time. I am more than impressed with the way they stepped in with the big boys and out smarted them. This could be a master of moves to do the same in gp. Tech 3, suppo and Marc is a combination for success. Marc has nothing to lose by trying. He has history with KTM. People always talk about how Marc needs a "ducati" experience, well here it is. If it doesnt work he will be able to go to any team he wants. But this would be his show. His bike. Every rider wants that.

This writer seems to think that Tech3 leaving Yamaha is just another in a long list of things showing a manufacturer on the decline. Another is the satellite situation . If you are secure with Honda or Ducati, do you leave them to be a short term fix at Yamaha knowing you will be dismissed in 2021 or possibly sooner
