Yes this is official! I really think Ducati made the right decision keeping Dovi , he would have had a solid start this season if it werent for so many misfortunate events.

Did you know Dovi earns double of Iannone? I read its a 3 mil vs a 1.5 mil contract. Mayb they lowered it now for Dovi..

Ianonne is trying to get signed to Suzuki.

Vinales made a very smart move. You move to the best bike - one proven over many seasons. Kevin Schwantz made a big mistake staying at Suzuki. Romantic perhaps but stupid. Vinales will have a chance to learn from the best too! Go Maverick!

I think more was possible with a worse bike in Kevin's era, even without the best bike you were still in with a shout.
Not really the case these days, when was the last time a satellite rider won again? 2006?

Agreed he will have a chance to learn from one of the best.
Until he starts winning and then it won't be so nice
