Stefan Bradl’s Moto2 squad still keen on MotoGP switch

Stefan Bradl's current Moto2 squad is not yet ready to abandon ambitious plans to move to the MotoGP world championship in 2012. The Viessmann Kiefer Racing squad had a self-imposed deadline of the recent German Grand Prix at Sachsenring to confirm whether it has raised the finances to lease a new Honda 1000cc machine for the Moto2 world championship leader. If it...

Bradl...

Will either be with Tech 3 (in place of Edwards) or LCR next year. Either way he won't be on factory kit. 


Tech3 at least will be running 2012 M1's, but Honda might still be the better option because the possibilities for advancement might be greater. There's no way Yamaha are going to lose JLo or Spies from the factory squad, so anybody moving to Yamaha knows they're going to be stuck on 2nd-tier kit. That's not necessarily so with Honda, as we've seen this year.

Bradl e Dovi

Heard though the Italian grapevine it was looking more like tech3 for Bradl next year but things change.

Dovi e Bradle together in LCR would make a good B team

Rookies...

.....Can't go into factory teams, they have to start in a private teams.

No point comparing an 800cc private bike to what a 1000cc private bike will be like.  They will all start with new 1000cc bikes which will be the same or very similar but development will be slower in a private team.  Will be the same with Tech 3 - they will get a new 1000cc bike but new parts will come through slower. 

The private 800's are relics (the honda is at least), but a private 1000 will not be too far behind a factory bike for the first season.  With a new bike, manufacturers will want as much data as possible to try and accelerate development.

I'm still waiting for someone to explain to me how the capacity increase is going to fill the grids.At the moment it's a pathetic amount of bikes that line up every wk & this is blamed on the costs of the machinery,so are 1000cc bikes going to be magically far cheaper & more available to teams?

its cheaper for new teams two come in as they can use WSb engines remapped for more power to compete witht eh main manufacturers thats how its cheaper for them instead of renting a bike of honda or ducati plus they can make the rest of the bike temselves and sell it on with no troubles from a factory team

Hmm...

Personally I like to see if Dovi can stick around with Repsol Honda. But if he goes to LCR, I hope he has a competitive chance of "Winning", races. He has been a disappointment on Repsol, as he should of won more than 1 race. When he did arrive in Motogp with LCR in 2008, he showed alot of promised. I also would like to see RDP back with LCR.

Rookies?

I know that the rookies can't get the factory ride first year in MotoGP, but why did Lorenzo and Pedrosa get on the Factory bike 1st year? Is it because they came in with 250cc championship?

No such rule.

Back in that time when Lorenzo and Pedrosa came up the rookie rule came out in 2009.
