Iannone isn't staying with Suzuki anyways, they literally can't wait to drop him and if you ask me, I'd feel the same if I were them.

Lorenzo better jump on board. He doesn't have any better alternative.

I think this is a win for Suzuki, a win for JLo, and a win for Dovi who will likely get a big contract out of Ducati.

who gets JLo's Ducati seat? Petrucci, Miller, Zarco???

Zarco to Honda ... likely.

So Im thinking Miller. Given Petrucci has has a fair try on Ducs but not brought a lot. Miller is Australian .... Im thinking superstition, history, fairytales and cheapness are wispering loudly in the ears that be at Duc.

Lorenzo on the Suzuki could and I know this is jumping the gun but it could bring Suzuki back as a serious contender for race wins at least. Their bike still handles great and seems to love corner speed, they've sorted out their issues so they're at least on par with Yamaha. Could r a fantastic venture for both while Rins grows as a rider.

Suzuki right now is better than the 2018 Yamaha.

Hopefully Miller, definitely not Zarco as Ducati openly said they are not interested in him.

Petrux might be staying in Pramac at this point.

I'd love to see Zarco in HRC but I somehow just can't picture that. Hopefully Honda will make it happen so I'll be able to

Really... so why is Zarco 3rd in the points and Rins down in 9th? The 2018 Yamaha will be just fine as soon as they stop using Rossi's much vaunted "development skills". Logic is really not your strong point.

I know you’re slow, but please try to read slowly and try to understand what 2018 Yamaha means.

So predictable. Knew you would say that. However, the factory bike is not that different from the earlier iteration. And besides, since the infallible God Rossi is spearheading the development, the 2018 M1 must be a superior bike. Right? Or are you saying that Rossi sucks ass when it comes to feedback and bike development?
