But definitely this season and eye on Jackass, Zarco and Nakagami too, pretty well for a rookie on the shitty Satellite Honda.
Yes, I knew little of Nakagami, but his times at the test were impressive.

Nakagami's Honda isn't factory, but it's also not shitty.
It's Cal's bike from last year.

Lüthi and Morbidelli get the scraps.

Maybe your right, for sure the Honda guys dont want a Japanese rider who is struggling on a Japanese bike.

He won't get a GP18 but let me put it this way: his bike will be closer to petrucci's than redding's was last year. Ducati wants to understand his real potential.

At least, this is what I've heard.

They were calling them Italians in the news. LOL. More like Aussie Italians I think.

With Petrucci probably moving on next year it does put Jack in a great position to get a GP19 for next year regardless of if he gets a factory ride soon or not
