Frustrated

Well I been reading the comments regarding Gino and some I agree with some I dont.

Gino is a very popular rider with the fans, a cheeky likeable fella who does ride on the edge, sometimes over it.

I think the problem moving to Moto2 this year has been a lack of testing. No testing was done with the 2012 Moriwaki/Showa Combo before the first round Qatar! Even after Mugello the other teams were out testing and there was no test for Gino. How can Gresini expect to find a good base setting for the Moto2 bike with the Suter/Showa combo when you are chasing a setup the rider likes in FP1 on race weekend (a 45 minute session) add to this that Gino has not riden half of the circuits so in FP1 he is trying to learn where the track go's and there is know way you are gonna be competitive. Even now when the Laguna round is on Luthi and Marquez are testing at Portimao. It must be so frustrating for Gino as he is getting the blame for Gresini's failing. The proof will be if another is given the chance to ride that Suter/Showa bike (Elias for example) and can't make it go any faster.

I hope Gino can get a ride in a team in any championship where he can show he is alot better than a 19th place finisher.

Fank Yu.
