This picture was hacked from the Ducati Course engineering department. They planned to show it to Pedro to entice him. Ducati pointed out Rossi is going to be an asshole for 2 more years, which had the unintended affect of Pedrosa extending with Honda. The upshot was that convinced Lorenzo to sign with Big Red. The Pedrocycle 2.0 project code named Little Red is now in the scrap yard.

To get back to the topic,

Whats your opinion on picking Dovi above Iannone?
Would you have picked different? And why?

I think it makes sense , even tough Iannone is getting better and has A LOT of Top speed records it doesnt win him any races.
Dovi on the other hand could have been contending for idk maybe even a 3rd place in the championship.
I believe they made a well tought choice.

And last but not least , viņales future.
Better of with Yamaha or should have stayed with Suzuki.
I'd like your opinion

If u ask me i think they picked dovi cuz of the iannones crash at qatar and le mans and ofc the way he took both out in argentina.. I think he should have stayed at suzuki.. Rossi will not make it easy for him and i kinda have a feeling he will end up like edwards over there.. I would have seen dani to yama, iannone to repsol and the suzuki line up unchanged.

Actually they offered Iannone a contract at Philip Island, which he turned down.

Contract to be in a satellite team (pramac) with full factory support, not the one he wanted .

I think the offer of the satellite ride came after Lorenzo signed. Could be wrong, but I thought he was offered a full factory ride at Philip Island as Lorenzo's signing was only very theoretical then.
