    Appears so. I think Sykes' interview about Kawasaki/ Rea a couple of weeks ago confirmed that he wouldn't be there next year. Maybe he spoke like that as he knew he was on the way ut of the door?

    Sykes hasn't had the form he used to, unfortunately, and it's a dog eat dog world out there particularly when your teammate is walking away with win after win. I'm not sure Haslam is the guy they want though, he already had a bite at WSB and wasn't good enough. OK he's leading BSB now but only because Byrne is out, and he had enough years in that series without winning it.

    Yeah, I've got to say, even though I like Haslam, I find him quite disapointing racing-wise.

    Word was he was going to GRT Yamaha but now there's rumours Melandri is favourite for that.

    I thought Dorna said they wanted up the WSB prestige by bringing in more MotoGP riders who can't find a seat. Seems odd that a top seat would go to someone with no championships to his name (yet)
