Interesting how he brought up Stoner who said something about needing a part(s) to get one with the bike many times.
I think the Ducati engineers probably have their heads up their asses. They design the bike and probably dont like a rider suggesting to change their design ?
Which ever way , they win the award for the ugliest bike on the grid !

Lorenzo confirmed in an interview on that he will be with another manufacturer next year, stating that unfortunately the changes have come to late for him.


Lorenzo hints at his future... | MotoGP?

yes he did we all know he is going back to yamaha. yamaha needs him badly as the development of the bike has gone straight down since he left. what i find interesting about ducati is this

1 dovi went to ducati in 2013 and did not have his first win till end of 2016 season. took him almost 4 years (all 13 14 15 and almost all 16 to do it) while lorenzo did it in a year and a half.

2 yes dovi had 6 wins last year but if he didnt would we be talking about lorenzo leaving after 2 years as they kept dovi nicky and probably kept rossi if he wanted to stay.

3 ducati is notorious for not giving what the riders ask for except when they had rossi. mr stoner can attest to that.

i guess what im saying is that lorenzo isnt really that bad and if he is that bad dovi must really be bad

stoner said the bike was getting worse from 2008. it was never the bike always the rider so ducati tried to get lorenzo when stoner was sick then went and got rossi. him and burgess said they can fix the ducati in 30 min. well 2 years no wins is a little longer than 30 min. further it ducati didnt have a win from 2010 through halfway of 2016.

they still dont listen to rider input its clear.

Itís good for Honda, if JL canít win theyíve 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 isnít 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...?

Well seeing how Lorenzo made sure a Spanish rider won the title a few years ago, when he kept the whole field tied up and balked passes just to let his butt buddy MM win it, it would not be surprising.
