Bookmarking this thread to post back in a few years to address the disappointment of a few when VR46 is racing in MotoGP.

I mean, I get it. Some of you REALLY want Yamaha and VR46 to get shafted. But here is the reality. Herve wouldn’t opt out of a Yamaha satellite deal unless there were amicable clauses. All major manufacturers are required to provide machinery to at least one satellite team and no existing team is currently open to receiving the bikes Yamaha is contractually bound to provide. Hence, VR46.

Once again, money talks in the paddock. Emotions talk on a forum. Herve gets a better deal and a boatload of orange tinted Euros. He is happy and the mid term future of his team is secured. No way in hell he will try to be a showstopper for VR46 to enter MotoGP eventually.

Go ahead and tell me I am wrong, I’ll come back and quote you when it happens.

This.

"All major manufacturers are required to provide machinery to at least one satellite team and no existing team is currently open to receiving the bikes Yamaha is contractually bound to provide."


Your probably right there. Junior VR46 team next year? Still doesn't change the fact that all teams and Dorna are bound by the clause limiting number of team and rider entries.

This is going to be a big deal this year. I for cannot see team VR46 not participating next year.

It probably won’t happen next year, it’s too little a timeframe for them to sort out logistics and sponsorship deals and all that. But a year or two later? Very possible.

Never say never. Carmelo is calm. Writing the check as we speak. Team VR is worth what you reckon in t shirt sales alone? More than enough.

Sponsorship won't be a problem. Heck Vale could probably afford it as an entire standalone sponsor. Though he is much too business savvy to go alone.

Logistics the same. Not an issue.

I bet Vr46's - (the team) legal beagles are working on it as we type.

Valentino knows his time is up soon, and again as fate has mostly been for him, everything seems to just fall in place.

I for one and happy to see him giving back to our sport in the way that he has been doing.

Giving back to the sport is one of the things I admire him for.
If you read the story of Morbidelli, you will understand that he had a snowball’s chance in hell to compete in the world arena if it wasn’t for VR46 (the man and the academy). And now he is in the premiere class. That’s an amazing thing to witness.

2021 it'll happen, I'm sure of it but once the agreement is up and not before then. It's almost guaranteed Rossi will have a MotoGP team of his own that's when the agreement is up and a new one will be made and with 2020 likely being Rossi's last year racing it will all line up vey well.

With Ducati reportedly building a bike for the moto3 class, KTM and Honda already competing there, I hope if Yamaha will return to the moto3 class and have the VR46 team as their factory team there.

I second this. I would love to see Yamaha back in the junior class.

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.
Latest hot rumor is Honda will take Zarco and let Dani go.

Makes sense. He is talking more like a guy with an HRC ride lined up than one with a ride on a KTM, even with the factory team, in prospect.
