Bordone-Ferrari is exciting and promising, but most definitely don't bring the resources of an HRC sized effort.
Just speculation on my part.
Chaleco started with Honda too as far as I know and currently is a Honda dealer in Chile... Anyways, dont think the opportunity was there when he signed for BF.
