Yes, Zarco and Folger saved that sponsorship for one more year. Then Folger quitting about cost them that.

Poor Zarco, he was already facing tune down so he couldn’t embarrass the factory boys, now the poor bastard doesn’t stand a chance. Instead of couple hundred rpm deficit, look for around 5-600

The end of such a successful partnership is always a bit sad, as it also marks the end of a long-term relationship. We are very grateful for Hervé’s loyalty and support to the Yamaha brand and for the excellent results obtained throughout that time.

I know it’s business but they publically announced that they would honor Herve ‘s loyalty and support by kicking him to the curb any time Rossi said he was ready. I have news for Carmelo, if he thinks his quote that he would change the rules to allow a Rossi team in he has another thing coming. He says all the teams would vote to let it happen but Herve says absolutely no it won’t happen because the existing teams were not going to de value themselves to help Rossi.

Surely Tech3 are off to KTM with Factory equipment. This could be a real good thing in time. Zarco gets full factory support.

Surely going to shake up the grid a bit.

Can see KTM being a force in 2-3 years time.

I'm guessing we will see another Carmelo clause this year.

remember -

"What we want is for Valentino to remain an active part of the championship," Ezpeleta told Autosport.

"Will he have a team? If he wants to, yes.

"We will not grant any more licences in MotoGP, apart from if Valentino asks us.

"If he wants a team in MotoGP, he will have it.

"I'm sure if we ask the other teams, they would all want us to offer that possibility [to Rossi]."

That’s where he will hit a snag. The other teams will not want the competition of going against Rossi for sponsorship and will say no, or at least Herve will and all it takes is one.

there are six private teams: LCR, Pramac, Gresini, Tech3, Aspar and Avintia with contract until 2021. That contract says no one can enter this championship as a new team. If anyone wants to enter, they must buy an existing team, or come to an agreement with an existing team … Nothing can happen until the end of 2021, except that Lucio [Cecchinello] has a second bike.
The limit of motorcycles on the grid makes it impossible “for someone, let’s say Valentino Rossi, to join in 2019,” Poncharal explains, “unless we all agree on the entry of two other bikes, and that’s not going to happen because then you lose your value” .

So a new entry is based on a %100 yes vote of privateer teams to pass?

Herve said at the Valencia test when being interviewed about the situation that all teams had to agree to it but he wouldn't. If DORNA tried to force it he would take them to court.

Sooooo I'm thinking, assuming that tech3 is going to KTM of course.

Pol to stay in the factory team, Zarco to red bull, Oliveira to tech3 with factory support and Syahrin to get another year if he has a decent showing.
