Yes, they are as committed as ever, they just lack the depth of resources enjoyed by Honda and KTM. The team is Olivier Pain backed up by Michael Metge and Frans Verhoeven backed up by Rob Van Pelt.

Hmm, looks rather tall and skinny. Could be the perspective though. I will say that some of the suspension mounting points look a little fragile. I would expect a little beefing up prior to January.
