Probably Suzuki because Cal’s management might be making a play for the repsol seat after today.
Three top of podium finishes in how many years with how many DNFs? Doubtful.

Plus, he conveniently forgets that Crutchlow is paid huge money by Monster energy which he'd have to ditch if he went to Red Bull backed Repsol. Why would he do that when he's already on a factory Honda?

Maybe after you’re done flipping burgers for McLaren, you can address your point without being a cunt about it.

why in God's name would Honda replace Pedrosa with Crutchlow. Dani is younger and has like 9x the wins Crutchlow has ,works relatively cheap and is the perfect teammate for Marquez.

Cheaper, is a normal sized human being and thus has more relevant inputs for development, face begins where Marquez’s ass ends.

Cal crashes to much,Honda cares
about constructors title. I will bet you now that even though Cal leads the championship,and Dani's in 12th, he will comfortably beat Crutchlow in the championship

This is what the stereotypical "friend of a friend" told me:

Zarco has a huge offer (money-wise) from KTM on the table. The factory team, not the one that Tech3 will build with KTM next year. KTM wants a top rider (don't give my words that look, Zarco IS a top rider) to make what they think will be the last step and to fully understand their bike's potential. Zarco has not accepted nor denied the offer yet.

Pedrosa seems to already have a foot out of HRC, which would be interested in Zarco and Dovizioso. Pedrosa is rumored to be ending up on a KTM.

Lorenzo is basically out of Ducati already. Dovizioso is ready to sign but wants a raise. Ducati offered him a 6 millions salary (he currently makes 1.5 million so I'd call that a raise) and he's "thinking" about it. The candidates for the second Ducati are Miller and Petrucci (in that order).

Suzuki wants to get rid of Iannone more than Palestine wants to get rid of Israel, and following up that "rumor" Aprilia started to talk with the Italian. They want to confirm Rins which they will do before Jerez. For the second bike, they are getting in touch with Zarco and Lorenzo.





Note I am not saying any of this is true, I am only saying a person I know who is rather close to the paddock told me.

All of that is rather believable. I am not very sure if Zarco will want to sign with KTM though, whatever the size of the paycheck might be. He wants to win NOW, not 2-3 years down the line.

Exactly. As for me, I would love to see Zarco on a Honda. Don't get me wrong I love Pedro, but I think it's about time HRC puts two mad dogs in the team like Yamaha always did.
