Michael Laverty: MotoGP or BSB in 2014?

Michael Laverty is still unsure whether he will be lining up against Marc Marquez or Shane Byrne in 2014. The Irishman’s racing future remains shrouded in uncertainty while he waits to learn whether current MotoGP boss Paul Bird will continue with his world championship squad next season. Laverty raced Bird’s British designed and built PBM frame for the majority of his debut...

 Can't say I'd be particularly upset to see laverty go back to BSB. I think he's out of his league in Motogp. That said I hope PBM and Aprillia can come to an agreement i not it means we lose a team and a supplier just as grid numbers were starting to get respectable. If Aprillia do leave at this stage I can only assume that plans for a 2016 full factory comeback will also be scrapped. Without a pilot to fit the bill it seems a bit inevitable. Shame I'd have loved to have seen Hayden on an updated ART over the neutered RCV anyday

Camier

Shame Aprilia determined to have a proven moto go rider on board ( I understand why) otherwise surely would have been worth giving Leon Camier a shot at that level, hes got aprilia experience, hes young, fast and worked hard dragging the suzuki up the grid in wsbk last year.

drawing a blank

 can't really think of a suitable candidate. A proven gp rider of a similar level to Espargaro, hayden or de puniet out of contract and available? Elias came to mind but he's under contact ben spies retired. Aspars defection to honda machinery has killed the ART machine

Marquez or Byrne ?

 Well which ever grid it is he wont be beating either of them ,It'smy guess that Aprilia are not that financially flush and pouring more into Bird droppings wont be a priorityfor them

See the world (bits of it I guess) and fill the grid or come home and beat the grid? MotoGp is a step or two out of your reach (about 10 steps for me!). Come home bud and enjoooooy your racing.
