Back in 2012 when his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer he claimed there was no way he'd take on a younger rider and he felt Rossi and himself would retire around the same time, end of 2012. He thought Rossi had lost the will to win and was done, the ducati was the final nail in the coffin.

I seem to remember that tv interview as well. Thinking he was over it and what the reaction would be to the tells all tales.

Same interview he went some way to contradicting Rossi with regards to Ducati as JB stated that they were listened to and did get absolutely what they asked for, but that they could not make it work and he felt that the reasons was simply that Rossi had lost desire and wanted out as he realised the mistake.

I remember thinking at the time that all hell would break loose when the interview 'got out' but it never seemed to until later, which made me think that it may have been an Australian release only interview

The interview may have been one of the 60 minute style but it was quite obvious at the time watching it, that not all was pleasant in Uccio's garage
Oh... so the interview occurred in Australia... no wonder nobody heard about it.

There was at least one interview in a bike magazine as well. As Keshav implies, he wasn't proclaiming it on motogp.com though.
