So Kawi says, GP is too expensive and we are not competitive...don't invest in it anymore.
Hopkins and Melandri end up without a job. 2 crews and all the support employees end up without a job....remember the cook:bs:, the guys that set up the pitts, etc?
Kawasaki still has to pay both crews...may be a severance package?:eyecrazy:
Has to pay both riders plus I imagine a shit load in damages....because if they don't ride, their sponsors have no billboard. Maybe the sponsors pay up anyway....I can see Hopper telling Alpinestar "you still have to pay me:dollarbil, Kawi left ALL of us hi and dry....sue them..":dontknow:
So when everything is said and done....how much did they really save?:jerkit:
I don't know...but I think Kawi pulling out just before the season's start showed very poor work ethics.:thefinger
