i think the truth is somehow the opposite.He has supreme ability and confidence,i just have this nagging feeling it could all go horribly wrong at some point.I really truly hope that i am completely wrong in this.

Very cool news on the Yamaha/Honda engine business. But will they even be able to challenge for podiums?

Nope. They'll be a little bit closer than the CRT bikes are now.

Well, sure, he has everything to prove in Moto GP. But he has firmly stamped his mark on the lower classes. Staying there would be redundant.

i think they will be better than crt but slower than the satelite bikes.And one reason is the teams that aquire them will have the resources to match the potential of the bikes?

So leased engines in non-yamaha chassis? Buy the Yamaha chassis and lease the engines? Putting the factory engines in a non-factory made chassis seems like a CF.

Despite the concessions that Honda and Yamha are making by providing some factory tech, electronics still trump all and no one can match them here.

There are big incentives for all teams to use spec electronics, too.

There is a current exception for teams to use their own electronics. I am not sure if that option will continue.
