Hope Pasini does well, I feel like he's really been shafted. Seemed like he was so close to a GP ride after a good 250cc run and then testing with Ducati. He's had a tough ride in Moto2.
Also really excited about Hernandez and Sofuoglu

The one that was supposedly to run by Uccio with Iannone as rider?

This class remains as much a mystery as it was at this time last year. To my mind there are 10 potential title winners here.

Pasini. Enigma. I'll always remember that Mugello 2009 race he won in the wet over Simoncelli and Bautista. One can only presume his machine wasn't up to it 2010. Look what happened to de Angelis once he changed steeds....

The Speed Master team is that team, the team run by Uccio and Iannone, with Iannone as the rider. Expect it to implode very rapidly.

What are you saying? Is Iannone going to need to look for another ride?

While Iannone's winning, everything will be well. But if Iannone starts losing, then there will be a lot of finger pointing in that garage, a lot of heat and very little light.

Given your natural diplomacy the strength of your comments rather caught me by surprise, David. Why do you feel that this new team will be so fragile? Without knowing the people involved is it the case that Uccio may be too inexperienced or ill-equipped to take on the role of team management? I'd be interested in hearing further thoughts from you on this issue...

Of particular interest must be the 125 up and commers vs the GP expats.
Marquez,Pol and Smith vs De Angelis,Aleix and Kallio. Last year,the GP man won it. This year,I fancy an ex 125 rider.No names,no pack drill.

Interesting to see Ratthapark Wilairot listed. Has he recovered enough to ride?

I also see Ant West is still doomed to less than decent rides.....

I was under the impression the JIR team were running 2 bikes?

Looking forward to a good Sufoglu/Redding/Marquez punch up. Lets here it for the young blood (if Sufoglu is indeed young)
