Why would Ducati let Dovi go, unless his manager is demanding a similar wage to Lorenzo? He showed he was competitive on the bike last year, unfortunately Honda have moved the game on over the winter and its a big gap to bridge for the rest of the field.

The new RCV is even making Crutchlow look good, my mum could ride it and finish in the points.

Dovi is not going anywhere, they cannot let him leave and he knows that. He is jsut making sure he gets every last penny out of Claudio

It's never going to happen in 1000000000 years, but fuck I'd love to see what Marques could do on it.

I donít see Dovi leaving. He and Ducati will ultimately come to a deal - he looks like their best shot for a title this decade. Jorge already seems to have one foot out the door. Isnít the factory squad looking at Jack?

I believe Rea has stated he wants nothing to do w GP. Heíd get crushed.

Monster announced they are out with tech 3 KTM, that leaves whoregay with monster backing , to go to Suzuki, at which point it is going to be Miller or Ionnone to Ducati to fill the empty seat, I would like to see Miller. The kid is looking good.

I've said that before, I reckon he'd be untouchable.

Dovi will stay . . . .

Ducati is not stupid, Dovi is just making sure they finally pay him what he's worth, as no other options are - or will be - as consistent.

Jorge on the other hand, that stock is set on 'sell'! His mental levels are only degrading now since dumbly leaving Yamaha (suited him), and I think he's on the Sete Gibernau sliding slump towards a 3-4 year final exit.

I always thought that Ducati should've tapped hard for Vinales before Yamaha renewed. Iannone will assuredly be able to jump right on, but the crashes and consistency (and cont. dev amplification w Dovi) will sting.
So I'd snag Petrucci; or early tap Baldassarri from Moto2.
