Yamaha: No chassis support for Forward in 2015

Yamaha will insist on Aleix Espargaro’s Forward Racing squad building its own chassis for the 2015 MotoGP world championship.The Italian-based squad has been allowed to start 2014 with a YZR-M1 chassis and swingarm package, while it developed its own frame to race in the future.Yamaha’s foray into the new Open category was only ever meant to include a leasing deal...

Sounds like a lack of sponsorship on the frame deal. Shame because Espargaro is on it.

Yamaha’s foray into the new Open category was only ever meant to include a leasing deal for its YZR-M1 engine, at a cost of around £650,000 per season.

Can you remember what your reaction was when I mentioned this several times on another topic Wosi?

What would you like served with that humble pie

Credibility.... ?  Pah

Short memory..

..which for one so cerebrally limited, is hardly a butt-head?

Nobody disputed Forward were originally supposed to run a different chassis..I posted a comment with a link from Cuzari's statement back in July 2013, which you obviously ignored.

It was your typical Honda apologist stance that came under fire, claiming it was a last minute arrangement and that the Yamaha frame was making ALL the difference..when in fact, we all know it's the engine.

It's not fair you blubbed..against the spirit of the rules you squeaked..while refusing to give a definition of what that statement meant.

So.. you've been sitting on the sidelines, licking your wounds since..waiting for a chance to get your own back..and THAT'S IT? Pleb.

Have you forgotten the opportunities I gave you to get a public apology from me, IF you backed up any of your bullshit?

Which you point blank refused to do?

The day you serve old wosi up some humble pie will be a cold day in Hell, because you're not bright enough.

Simple as.. 

Now put your dukes up..adopt a back foot stance and get ready for incoming..I haven't even started with you yet.

Wosi and humble pie Bulto

It's all he ever eats. It's why the poor fella has such a Strongbow problem.

Too true JW. Lin's had a guts full of Herve rightfully chewing his ear.

Couple of second hand Thunderace frames off eBay should do the trick. Then they can rear wheel steer like good 'uns.
