Horhay leaving Ducati

I know it's been rumoured for a while, but MCN are saying that he is gone from Ducati.

I can't see anything there that says he's gone from Ducati.

Think he is referring to this bit Theo:

Quote:
MCN’s sources in the MotoGP paddock believe that Ducati rider Jorge Lorenzo has told the Italian firm that he won’t remain with them for the 2019 MotoGP season, opening the door for the five-time world champion to make the switch to Suzuki for next year.
MCN are the daily star of bike media, but where there's smoke, there's fire?

It's a done deal IMO.

He's not going to circle around as a backmarker on a Ducati for another year or two as he wants to challenge for titles. At least we know the Desmosedici is only for those who have a physical riding style.

Perfect for Marc Marquez when he leaves Honda eventually.

You figure he's going to get tired of winning?

Probably not tired of winning. Just going to take his winning ways elsewhere for shits and giggles.

I've said it before, I think Marquez' intention is to stay with Honda until title #10 (if he gets that far) then he might need a new motivation. My bet was originally for him to go to KTM, but maybe he will want to try and be the only other person so far in history to win on a Duc?

Like 22 said, he wants that 10th title on the Honda.

He'll go elsewhere once mission accomplished. Where better than the Desmosedici? His riding style is perfect for that bike. He'll make it turn unlike anyone since Casey Stoner.

OMG - we'll have a whole different generation of boppers by then. What will we call them?
