thanks. So, Patrick is with Team Honda Europe again this year?

Fretigne as with team Yamaha - France, now with Speedbrain - BMW.

Does anyone know how these "factory" teams, which are country or region-specific, are organized? Does this mean that the funding does not come from global HQ, but rather the company's national HQ? Do they get engineering help from the factory? If anyone has first hand knowledge, I'm curious?
