I'm not so sure Gresini just got any better by landing Aoyama to replace Melandri.

I have to ask this just to see what your thoughts are David.

Are the only 2 eligible for Rookie of the Year next year going to be Abraham and Crutchlow, since Elias has previously been in MotoGP? I would guess so, but I figured I would ask you to just be sure.

dovi confirmed as part of repsol today. will be interesting to read your take on the 3 man repsol team, david. puig and suppo plus all the history of the big repsol squad in the past...
