I read that he was not happy with terms offered by Ducati on Kropotkin's site, don't know where I read the pramac connection, might have been on here!

It has to be gut wrenching when reality sets in for some of these guys. Lin Jarvis just flat out said Pol was never a candidate for the factory seat because his performance has not been up to where it deserved consideration. I think he is trying to get Pol to move on without actually shitcanning his ass in front of the world

It's a shame he hasn't come to much just yet, I had hopes for him considering the hard times he gave Marquez in Moto 2 .

Hopefully both Asparagus brothers will be out of GP soon.

Need to get rid of more Spanish riders.

Often the case and something I have said often (and been laughed at), that success in one category does not automatically translate to another category.

I always refer back to Kenan Sofaglu in WBSK/WSS. Absolutely dynamite in WSS but in WSBK he simply was out of his depth (at that time) and so went back to WSS and familiarity.

To be fair, the reverse can happen as well which is why I like to look across all smaller class riders when assessing for myself as I have no doubt that there are riders in the smaller categories that could rock (not necessarily win, by be competitive) in the larger classes, but due to the results the opportunity will not come

I never considered Pol to have ever been close to the plane Marquez performed at in Moto 2. Sure, he beat him on a few instances, but Marquez dominated Pol, who was on the preferred chassis .

Bingo. That offer was made after Lorenzo had been signed.

I Ride: Yamaha and Ducati
Dovi was chosen by Lorenzo. Nothing that happened afterwards mattered. Nobody wants Iannone as teammate -- not Rossi, nor Marquez, nor Lorenzo. I think Suzuki was the only option for him and I have a feeling Suzuki and Iannone will be great in the role of spoilers next season.

So Ducati themselves were relaxed about him depriving them of a dual podium by allowing his ambition to outweigh his talent, and his 2 in 7 finishing rate in his last 7 races?
