Petrucci signed yesterday the contract with Ducati to be the dovicious partner next year. Maybe if JLO were not so bigmouth and had not faced Domenicalli in the press, he would have had another chance.

I don't think Lorenzo wants another chance.

I think Petrucci will do a good job keeping that seat warm till Peco gets up to speed.
At least whoregay topped his arch rival,VR, and got a win on the ducati.

Lorenzo brought it and shut a whole lot of doubters up.. So who felt better this weekend?

Rossi tied the 2nd place pole setter (LORENZO) and managed a 3rd place finish.. all great things for him..

Lorenzo, Got what ever PART he has been asking for from Ducati, won the first weekend with it at Ducati's home track, and is leaving for what will be a better ride for him..

Hmmm, to bad marques crashed out was hoping to see him add another 4 points to his lead over Dovi.

Hard to believe a new shaped gas tank helped thst much for him but you never know. The commentators said it helped him on braking and being more steady

Hard to believe, only because none of us are at a level where it matters. Lorenzo is.

If it was a gas tank, this is my thoughts.. as a rider at this level in this sport, if you say i need a different gas tank, a factory team like ducati should do it no questions asked.

Interesting how he brought up Stoner who said something about needing a part(s) to get one with the bike many times.

We’ll find out next weekend where Lorenzo will be for the next two years. I know the rumor is a satellite Yamaha but I’ve got this weird feeling. I think Lorenzo may be on the Repsol Honda next year. It makes sense: Repsol likes Spanish riders, the announcement is set for Spain (which would be good for Repsol), Jorge alluded to bring on a competitive bike which the Honda may be more than the Yamaha. It’s good for Honda, if JL can’t win they’ve got Marquez, and it keeps him off a competitors bike. They have the money to pay him.
Marquez made some comments to the press that lead me to believe it is Lorenzo. (He said the Honda isn’t an easy bike to ride) which seemed like a warning to Lorenzo.

I could be wrong, it might be a Yamaha in Petronas colors, but what if...?
Thanks from JonT and HeronB
