Thanks for the link. Interesting read.


But I think it's a total crock.


I bet he is enjoying not travelling all the time.


If he did ever come back I would love it to be on a Ducati though.


What about a Phillip Island wildcard? Would still be tough to beat there on any bike.

The story is correct and insightful in many respects, but it is completely wrong regarding the Crutchlow-Ducati (missed) deal. It's actually the opposite... Cal was wanted and almost hired by Guareschi and Preziosi, but it is Audi that blocked the deal and chose Dovi instead, considering him a better choice for a development-intensive phase.


I think the Germans' logical thinking is to develop the bike with Dovi, and then try to hire one of the elite riders. Crutchlow could be again in their short list by that time, if he keeps improving; probably they will closely watch Iannone at the same time, how he develops.


But the prospect of "Stoner reloaded" at Ducati would make any other option pale in comparison and be truly a massive hit, one that I do not doubt Dorna would be happy to fund partially on their own. It's not impossible.

Haha, are you kidding. We were just rightfully lambasting the barely literate dude who wrote this piece. Here is the part of the article I found interesting.

Entertaining....but, I lost faith in the credibility of the argument when it was inferred that Dani was not a Championship contender but Cal was? That's peculiar! It has very little to do with Cal. I think on the factory Honda or Yam, he would be regularly up front. Dani is very obviously a "contender," his results can only be interpreted one way and that's that he is contending or competing comfortably against the only other two "contenders.'





Cal is having a great season, he's showing more poise than previous years. While he's not on a factory bike, he's hardly riding the sled that's been handed to the Ducati boys and other satellite riders. He should be finishing right where he is. His bike is not a factory Honda, but it is a capable machine.





As for Stoner's return, I really doubt that.





Where's Krop?

He already chimed in. He said Stoner returning to GP has the same probability of SuperShitya getting laid.

I see... sounds like a self-help group of some kind.

I think she looks pretty nice, actually. Bit plastic, but nice.
